Tutorial How to Install YWP Android App for Hong Kong Taiwan China Thailand Japan Korea Live TV

(New) Update Sept 3 2017: Comment section closed. Please post comment at https://shaolinseo.com/forum/ywp-%E5%8F%8B%E7%AA%9Dplayer

Many overseas Chinese like to watch TV channels from Hong Kong and Taiwan, especially TVB, Interactive News, Phoenix etc. There are many TV boxes in the market that able to play these live TV channels. I am not sure about all but some of the boxes are using channels from IPTV. The problem is these IPTV addresses might not be usable after few months. Without knowing how to change the addresses, you might be forced to purchase the "upgraded" box or other types of tv box.
In fact, you might be albe to reuse your old tv box, install an app (player) and copy/paste channel urls (list) and you have it. If you know how to set the IPTV address, you can change it after the old one expired.
Do note that I am unable to provide you the latest and greatest IPTV addresses. You might want to join facebook groups or communities to keep up to date.

Here is one YWP (友窝Player), an IPTV player without built-in channels. No IPTV channels after installation. We have to add a list of channels into this app. It can play most of the live streaming formats including the "vjms://" links.

Tutorial How To Stop Buffering Issues on Kodi 17 Krypton

Did you ever encounter video buffering when you watch movies or tv shows on Kodi? In fact, this is a very common issue.
There could be many root causes to this problem.
1. Your internet connection is slow.
You need a minimum of 8MB/s connection to have stable 720p and 1080p streaming, and 10MB/s for live TV streaming.

2. Network slow down from Internet service providers.
There is nothing we can do about it until your ISP fix the problem.

3. Video streaming source is slow.
Change video source or subscribe Real Debrid for quality and stable streaming.

Tutorial How to Install TvBrowser Android App to Search and Play Movies/Shows from Multiple Sources

As you know, there are many apps out there that can play movies, dramas and variety shows from China. However, not all apps are created equal. Sometimes you have to search a few apps just to locate a particular show. Then of course there are apps that geo-block the show if you are outside China.
Lately I found this app, TvBrowser, that help you search any movies, tv shows, news, music, education etc from your tv box. You can search a movie or tv show just like internet browser. Then select which of available sources to play. For some reasons, many movies are not geo-blocked when you use this app. Cool?
