Popular and high speed sites like youtube or dailymotion seems ok with Lavsouce & DSPlayer.
Yup, the problem is that aracnoz decided to hardcode Lav Splitter (internal) for all kinds of streams. There's no over-ruling that, not even through mediaconfig.xml. This is problematic because:

1) Lav Splitter (internal) might not necessarily be the best solution for any given stream.
2) We are stuck with the version he implemented (if I remember correctly he mentioned it was a modified version, but I might have gotten that wrong, back then).
I believed the modified version was all lavfilters to work with Kodi GUI settings. The maun reason was you can change settings via remote.
Ok, yes, lavfilters can be updated, I see the the new builds have updated filters. But the problem remains, the LAV Splitter is hardcoded, there is no way to use a different filter for internet streams. If you find it, please do share. Thanks.
For troubleshooting and bug reporting please make sure you read this first.
