mpr zero length playlist

While trying to play a live hls stream, I am getting an error which I am having trouble making sense of - here are the details of the error:

ERROR CODE -3 "An unexpected problem (but not server timeout or HTTP error) has been detected"
CATEGORY "mediaplayer"
SOURCE "buffer:search:"
DBG MSG "exception:mpr zero length playlist"


Can someone shed some light? I am guessing that the Roku HLS parser could be choking on a tag or an attribute that it doesn't like, but that's only a guess  - not sure how I can progress given the limited information available.

Re: mpr zero length playlist

Hi @tifroz,

Can you provide the code you are using to get the playlist so we can further determine why you may be getting this error?
