IPTV stands for internet protocol television and entails users receiving television programs over the internet instead of antennas, satellite dishes, or fiber-optic cables. In other words, IPTV streams video content directly over the internet.
The IPTV sytem can be used for schools and church as the pictures showed. And more information: http://fmuser.org/
Although IPTV content delivery is different from that of online video platforms like YouTube or OTT services like Netflix, it does share many of their conveniences. For instance, IPTV allows users to access video on demand (VOD) content on a subscription-based model and watch live broadcasts. That gives viewers the freedom of accessing their favorite shows at will while still having the option of enjoying live events and programs like on traditional TV.
This flexibility is why IPTV outshines traditional television and is considered the future of TV.
Buffering is the process of preloading data into a reserved area of memory that’s called a buffer. In the context of streaming video or audio buffering is when the software downloads a certain amount of data before it begins playing the video or music. You can watch the data stored in the buffer while the next portion of the file downloads in the background. This preloading process ensures a smooth playback process without interruption — at least in theory, and most of the time in practice.
Buffering messages often display progress as a percentage. If it says 75%, that means 75% of the buffer memory has been filled. When it reaches 100%, the audio or video starts playing.
One of the biggest issues that many customers deal with using a private IPTV service is freezing and buffering. To help solve this issue there are a few things to consider. We will discuss the 6 main factors that cause your IPTV service to freeze and buffer.
(1) Appropriate Internet Speed
Internet speed is the NO.1 reason why you will experience buffering and freezing.
Your internet needs to be a minimum of 7-10 MBPS download and 1-3 MBPS upload speeds. But many customers even after advised by a professional still do not get an adequate internet package with the appropriate speeds to make their IPTV service experience fully enjoyable.
(2) Wired Connection
We recommend using at least 25Mbps if you are choosing to connect directly to the modem. If you do not have any other device connected you should be done with this. If you are connecting via WI-FI, depending on your home setup, we recommend 150Mbps. This will vary depending on where your modem is located in relation to your IPTV box.
Products to improve your IPTV experience if connected wirelessly: Power-over Ethernet (1000Mbps preferred), WI-FI adapters (300 Mbps or more).
(3) Limited bandwidth from the streaming source
There are two reasons that make cause the lack of bandwidth. a) Too much traffic in the pipes provided by the ISP. b) Too much garbage in the traffic. If you are using torrents or download managers at the same time as watching IPTV, the TV will not work. Torrent will consume all of the possible resources of your network and leave nothing for IPTV. The solution is very simple – do not download movies while using IPTV.
(4) Internet Service Provider (ISP)through connection speeds
(5) Wired routers incapable of transferring streaming video
Most of the routers that are 2 years or older were not designed to transfer streaming video. If the router has problems with interpreting the protocols and passing on the information, it will make the IPTV buffer. Routers found to be more reliable and work better with fewer problems while D-Link or Wireless routers incapable of properly sending streaming video, or misconfigured, or not secured.
(6) Server Quality
Price and Quality Matters. Many people get caught up with the dirt-cheap pricing and go with services that cost $8 – $12. From experience, these systems may work for a little while, but at those prices don’t expect something long-lasting. Because of the low price, many people jump on board in large numbers and over time get bogged down with traffic, and as a result will slow down, freeze and buffer. These cheap servers often also lack customer service support. For better server quality and speeds, a server costing you $15 – $25, with $20 being the sweet spot is your best bet. These top/premium servers generally have their servers well maintained, and provide fairly comprehensive customer service support.
Sometimes the Administration team does tests to the server(s) and moves channels, to test for better performance. There are three factors that the suppliers consider when the IPTV freezing or buffering.
(1) Internet speed
If the internet speed is low, then the channels won’t load fast, and buffering time will be high. So, when customers report problems, we first check for the connectivity speed. If it is low, we suggest our customers go for a higher internet plan. Also, we confirm whether they are using proper middleware.
If the customers’ home is filled with the latest bandwidth-draining devices, then you cansuggest them to get a router that can keep up with demands. From watching YouTube videos and playing the latest online games to downloading music and streaming movies, these demanding wireless activities require a fast, strong wireless connection to avoid dreaded freezing and buffering.
(2) Selecting Middleware
Next comes the selection of Middleware. Middleware is the software that acts as a bridge between the operating system and the IPTV applications running on it. IPTV some channel freezing problem may occur due to wrong middleware selection. So, our Dedicated Engineers suggest using an IPTV box. It has a built-in Wi-Fi (or antennae attachment) that outputs at a fast enough Mbps to work along with Ethernet Power Adapter or Wi-Fi booster. One of the reasons for channel freezing can be the connection of the IPTV box to the internet via Wi-Fi. To overcome this, we suggest our customers use an Ethernet Over Power adapter.
(3) Server Quality
Another key factor in the IPTV industry is the quality of the server. The performance of the server matters much in the quality of IPTV service.
(1) Get Recommended Equipment
Getting the right equipment will determine how your service is pushed. It’s recommended that you get a box that the service provider recommends. Usually, they already know the best options that run their system. However, beware and do your research first, and ask all the questions you can think of. We recommend using dedicated IPTV boxes instead of Android boxes with emulators. Dedicated IPTV boxes are built for live streaming and more specific features and functions of IPTV, with no programming required. Android boxes with emulators require programming, which can be troublesome.
(2) Ethernet Power Line Adapter / *Ethernet Over Power
This is probably one of the best solutions if you can afford the $70 – $100 tab. Many people experience freezing and buffering because they connect their IPTV box to the internet via Wi-Fi. An *Ethernet Over Power adapter helps with this. This device allows you to hardwire your IPTV box directly to a source feed and get near 100% speed you get from your modem. There’s no set technical setup required.
(3) Ensure your internet speed works with the site you’re using
Streaming content requires a sturdy internet connection. Fmuser org. makes the following recommendations for streaming their content:
· Minimum required speed – 0.5 Megabits per seco
· Recommended broadband connection speed – 1.5 Megabits per second
· Speed recommended for SD quality content – 3.0 Megabits per second
· Speed recommended for HD quality content – 5.0 Megabits per second
· Speed recommended for Ultra HD quality content – 25 Megabits per second
This can be used as a general guideline for streaming content from other sources as well. Please note that if large numbers of people are accessing a single streaming source at the same time, this will create a bottleneck. This will result in increased buffering regardless of what you do.
(4) Network connectivity problems
Each receiver has buffer setting, this will allow you to adjust the buffer size that works best for your internet.If your connection speed matches or exceeds 5.0Mbps second and you are still experiencing issues, then your first step should be running an internet speed test to see what your numbers look like. If the speed reported by the linked testing service above reports a value lower than what is expected, then consider these solutions:
①You may need to move your device closer to your wireless router if you are using a wireless internet connection. The further away you are, the more likely you are to lose signal integrity.
②You might also want to consider using a wired connection instead. A wired connection will eliminate any issues with low signal integrity due to being too far away from your router. The connection will also be faster. However, your setup will be tethered to one location with this option.
③Verify that you don’t have any other devices connected to your network that are eating up your bandwidth. If this is the case, disconnect these so that your IPTV isn’t hindered.
(5) Pause it for 3 minutes
Video on Demand is not working while TV channels are playing fine, or TV is not working and Video on Demand is playing fine. For the Video Club, movies always best to press play, then pause it right away for about 3 minutes to let your internet download the movie so that when you press play you will have already successfully buffered some time on the movie itself. And Sometimes rebooting your whole network including your IPTV box will help, because it can flush all old transferring data used in your network.
How does IPTV work? It may sound obvious, but in order to get an internet TV, you will need a broadband internet connection and a router. IPTV is simply video sent over the internet for a PC or other device to receive. Apart from YouTube on your TV, other services may include catch-up programming or video-on-demand.
Q: How can I boost my IPTV?
There are five ways to boost the IPTV.
Restart your router.
Update your router firmware.
Change the location of your Wi-Fi.
Limit devices and optimize settings.
Get a Wi-Fi booster.
Q: Is IPTV better than cable?
It's hard to judge which is better. Because yourIPTVuses the internet to stream video, you may suffer degraded video during peak hours if you have a substandard internet connection. Cableis thebetterchoice if you have a poor internet plan, but with the right amount of bandwidth,IPTVmay be thebetterchoice.
The transmission range depends on many factors. The true distance is based on the antenna installing height , antenna gain, using environment like building and other obstructions , sensitivity of the receiver, antenna of the receiver . Installing antenna more high and using in the countryside , the distance will much more far.
EXAMPLE 5W FM Transmitter use in the city and hometown:
I have a USA customer use 5W fm transmitter with GP antenna in his hometown ,and he test it with a car, it cover 10km(6.21mile).
I test the 5W fm transmitter with GP antenna in my hometown ,it cover about 2km(1.24mile).
I test the 5W fm transmitter with GP antenna in Guangzhou city ,it cover about only 300meter(984ft).
