Re: Android app won't play live channel

I seem to have "fixed" this.  The channel will actually start playing.  Eventually.  It literally takes 1-2 minutes for the video to start, but it seems to play.

Many other channels start in a few seconds.  So with the Outside channel, I had been giving up after 20-30 seconds of waiting.  Apparently, I just need to wait much longer.
