I really like the app "Smart IPTV" (www.siptv.eu) since it looks like a real STB and offers automatic integration of logo's and EPG. However the app does not run totally smooth on my android box. The picture is not 100% fluent but it is 'stuttering' a bit (like it has a reduces frame rate). You can see this especially during for example football matches with fast moving pictures or when text bars are scrolling on the screen. When I run those streams on MX Player they play 100% smoots.
I have tested Smart IPTV on my H96 Pro+ box (S912 chipset) and on my Himedia H8 Plus (RK3368 chipset). Both boxes have the same problem. To me it seems a problem with the 'engine' of Smart IPTV and there are no settings that I can change.

Does anybody else here use "Smart IPTV" and recognize this problem, or does anybody maybe know a solution for this problem? Or are there any other Android boxes on which Smart IPTV works 100% fine? Or is there any other alternative software similar to Smart IPTV ?
I have tried several of them including perfect player, progtv, iptv extreme etc....but nothing gets really close to the real STB look and easy EPG integration of Smart IPTV.
Thanks a lot for your opinions!

Thanks for the advice! I am currently playing a bit with this app.....is it also possible somehow to change the order of the channels, to remove channels, or to use my own custom playlist? Or only the list as provided by rapid iptv? Or can I change something in xtream codes myself?

Also with this app my streams are not 100% fluent. This is especially visible aith a channel such as "BBC News". There is a newsbar permanantly scrolling on the bottom on the screen and you can see that this is 'stuttering' a bit. When I play this stream with MX Player it is 100% smooth. Itried to change the player settings (native, hardware decoding, software decoding) but this doesn't change a lot. Is this a problem in the software, or with my android box? With both of my android boxes I am having the same problem (H96 pro+ with S912 chipset, and Himedia H8 Plus with RK3368 chipset). Or is there something else I should change?

Look for the setting Adaptive Frame Rate (or Auto Framerate Refresh) android also have a setring for hdmi (self-)adaptation that will enable switch 50/60hz.
Much dependant on your display and it's features aswell.
Hope I clarified something at least :)

Where could I find those settings? I cannot find them anywhere.I just upgraded my firmware on my my H96 Pro+ to "poison rom 4.3". This firmware should perform better than the original Android 7.1.2....but I am still having the same problems. The streams are still shuttering/stuttering a bit in Smarters IPTV. In MXPlayer everything runs 100% smooth.

Dont know exactly for your box but I'll thing they run same basics.
Do you have kind of two different menu that handle settings? I do, one is very similar to regular android settings and the other feel somewhat more box/tv settings, anyhow in this second settings menu there is a variety of hdmi settings
