iPhone 5 wifi m3u8 streams stopping/buffering

for some reason when I'm watching m3u8 live streams over wifi the streams buffer or stop completely,, they work fine on LTE and 4g,, I know my wifi is fast because I have a fast router,,I'm on 6.0.1,,the quality is set in low too,, it's very frustrating,, any ideas?

The streams worked fine on iPhone 4 and 4s on wifi 5.1.1

bump much?


your wifi router speed has nothing to do with your internet connection speed. I can have a wireless N router with a 2 mbps connection..


Try changing your wifi encryption to WEP
Myself and others have slow wifi on the ip5 when connected to other encryption.
