Randomly losing video streams

JayUK 3 years ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 3 years ago 1

Hi all,

It's probably just me (it usually is), but it seems that recently I am randomly losing my video feeds to my media tiles more often.

My setup is:

Fire HD8

LineageOS 16

Fully Kiosk (licensed)

4 media tiles showing streams from Blue Iris

I have FKB configured to use a screensaver (black screen) and automatically turn back on when motion is detected.

The videos were quite stable, but recently I am getting grey tiles with different streams.

A reload of the AT panel/screen solves it.

Has anyone else noticed more recent issue with video streams?

Can anyone suggest a solution (I wanted to avoid the static image route and stick with live video)

There are no recent changes to how ActionTiles handles videos, however there might be external factors in your setup that affect this.

Note that ActionTiles has a preference to reload the app periodically. It often helps to reset video streams if they get dropped. This setting is found under App Settings.
