BH 3.0.8 onwards includes ServiceApp and Exteplayer3 which gives improved media playback / streaming performance.
It is pre-installed in all boxes, except Gen1 Solo, Duo, Uno, Ultimo and Zero, so you will have to enable it from the BH SpeedUp menu on those boxes.
To use it with IPTV, you can either leave the ServiceApp settings as default and in your IPTV lists, just change the #SERVICE 1:0:1: or #SERVICE 4097:01: to #SERVICE 5002:0:1:
Doing this, Exteplayer3 will only be used on your IPTV streams.
Or you can change the default setting of Enigma2 playback system in the ServiceApp menu from Original to Exteplayer3.
Note: that you can not record IPTV streams if you are using Exteplayer3 (however Enigma2 isn’t reliable when recording IPTV anyway).
Changing the setting in the ServiceApp menu, means that the image will no longer use the built in Mediaplayer (linked to Gstreamer) and will use ExtePlayer3 for all media playback for IPTV and streaming aswell as any movies / recordings on your hdd, doing this you won’t need to convert your IPTV lists to #SERVICE 5002:0:1:
