    What do you need to do (app?) to get live streaming to work on a Nexus 7?

    TV Portal in conjunction with the MX Player works very well - no stuttering - I guess because of the hardware acceleration by the MX Player. Watch the video on the Playstore's TV Portal page for details.

    That works great for movies and old tv shows, but I would like to view live events on web sites of my choice. Don't seem to be able to do that. Am I missing something?

    Any specific websites? They might not be optimised for mobile browsers.

    Which ones? The BBC for instance has bad support for Android but is slowly improving. But if it's a standard video stream and works on iPad, it's most likely html5 and should work on android just as well. You can try downloading mx player as suggested above, it handles streaming quite well in my experience.

    If you let us know the sites, we can mess about with settings etc, we may be able to get them to work.

    Just tried the live streaming passion one, using Boat Browser and Flash Plugin enabled. The page loads, I can start to play the video, but it buffers for an age and the loading circle never disappears. What does it do for you?

    I can run my German news which is this website (on the PC) - but they have their own app for Android. Maybe you should scout whether there is an app for your channel - BBC has a couple.

    Hi queen1, could you expand a little, what model phone do you have, what are you trying to stream etc?

    Let me know & I'll get your posts moved to the correct forum where hopefully users of the device will be able to assist.
