@sam_nazarko: Thanks for the quick reaction.
There is some improvement after applying the update, but we are nowhere near a final fix.
Right now when opening MTS files from Pictures mode, sometimes there is excessive buffering and stuttering / freezing / slow motion / sound issues, but sometimes all is good (like 1/4 times).
It looks like it uses HW decoding now
Maybe I have some buffering not set properly, it is working fine for other purposes though.
Here is the debug log https://paste.osmc.tv/quvatoyehe
20:59:37.440 - approx start of video
20:59:45 - buffering issue starts
after the buffering there was sound issue - no sound and staggering until I believe approx 21:00:12
The video itself is pretty heavy - around 50Mbps, nowhere near the Vero limit though.
Also I don’t expirience similar symptoms when launching videos from Video menu.
There is however still one more issue that remains very broken:
When sliedeshow is enabled there is little change in behaviour:
The video is starting in the background and we can only see like a thumbnail displayed.
I guess this is better then black screen, but there is no way to continue a slideshow after it hits a movie.
I seriously thing that it may have something to do with:
Pi is a differnt story because it renders video to a separate plane. You need to poke the platform maintainer if you want to get this fixed on that platform
I think that Vero may be facing the same issue. I just don’t understand why kodi developers don’t want to fix this, but maybe I am missing something with this seperate plane thing.
If you need any more information or testing from me please let me know.
