I use the xupnpd2 mediaserver ( on
my router to display some hls-streams on my TV. xupnpd2 doesn't support
https. The author doesn't want add https support.

My idea is to use nginx in this scenario on the router:
xupnpd2 (client) <---> http-traffic <---> nginx <---> https-traffic
<---> (server)

xupnpd2 should receive the playlist (.m3u8) and the media-chunks (.ts)
locally via nginx over http.

When using vlc-player with xupnpd2 and via nginx, the displayed stream
(from this site: is 4 hours behind
the actual time.

I hope someone could help me.

Best regards,
