I was able to live stream in the app once, now live streaming force closes the app.

I've cleared data, uninstalled/reinstalled and still force closes as soon as I select watch on Android.

It sound like something is not stable in your setup/configuration.

 

I have my ASUS Android tablet right next to me streaming just fine as I type this...

Actually my Nexus 7 is the most stable device I own. Never rooted, only 21 apps installed and the setup is as bone stock as it gets for an activated device.

It appears to be a KitKat issue.

I just got an email back from D*: KitKat isn't yet supported for streaming. Streaming in the phone app on KitKat is affected as well.

The rest of the app works fine. And it looks great too.

That would at least make some sense...since that version of Android is extremely new to most devices.

What is KitKat?  I could not stream for the 1 1/2 months I had my Asus.  After the last update, it worked.  I've had the update for all of 10 days and now the next update breaks it again.  Starting a stream forces the app to close.

 

Also..why does it require an IP validation EVERY time I launch the app?  Can't it remember the IP worked last time?

"KitKat" is the next generation of Android operating system following the current mainstream version "Jellybean".

 

I suspect the IP check is routine for those locations where DHCP assigns them randomly, as opposed to some people using reserved IP addresses for their devices.

I reserved the IP addresses for everything on my network.  My DVR is always 192.168.1.71.  I am on KitKat v 4.4.  Streaming worked after I received the 4.4 update, but stopped after the latest DirecTV update.  Wonder why streaming is broken...yet again.

 

The reviews on the PlayStore are hammering DirecTV again.  Why can't they get this right?

Has anyone tried to stream on demand with the latest app?
