Platform: Win32 and Android ARMv7 and AARCH64
Tested with Kodi 17 Krypton Builds Beta 5,6,7 and Kodi v18

----

With every Video-Plugin (e.g. pvr.zattoo, ZattooBox, ZattooBoxExtended, MagineTV, TVSpielfilm, etc.) video streams start with a delay of 6-10 secs!
First a frozen picture of the stream appears after ~2 secs, and then the audio begins to starts. After another ~8 secs the frozen video-picture begins to starts, too.

In Kodi 16.x the same streams start immediately (audio + video same time).

Here's the log:

Hi,

i can confirm this bug and many other users have the same issue combined with zattoo.pvr and kodi 17 Beta 5 and higher.
Kodi 17 Beta 4 works fine.

Looks like this is Zattoo only and should be move into the pvr section of the forum.

I have the same issue on my Raspberry PI 3 since #1025 Kodi 17 Beta5.

Bevor #1025, there was a 3 Seconds loop on every start of a video-stream.

I wanted to ask if there is any progress on this issue. Without this being resolved there will be no chance for me to upgrade to Kodi 17 when it goes final. My wife will kill me with these zapping times.=/

What is needed to analyze that problem? If necessary I can provide debug logs and so on...
