9.2.5 placeshifter errors out

At the present, I have one system actively recording. v 9.2.2

The 9.2.5 placeshifter connects. everything looks fine, but I get an exception when trying to play live TV. The 9.2.2 placeshifter works fine. Do server and client need the same version?

I'm thinking possibly it's the bundled ffmpeg?

Java is oracle 1.8.0 v202

I think it has to do with the included mplayer needing older library files that are no longer supplied in newer Linux distributions. I got on this track reading what Stuckless said in this thread:

I'm using Placeshifter 9.2.5 and I'm having the same problem. I don't think it has anything to do with the version, unless they make a breaking change in the network streaming code.

Maybe it IS the java version. see the log excerpt below:

Robert, I tried substituting the old ffmpeg. Same result. then I tried copying the system ffmpeg, same result.

I tried all three ffmpegs on a previous recorded mpg. All three played the video but the new sageTV embedded ffmpeg had no sound.

How are your test going?
