OHC Kodi 15.2 on 1.40 beta
Hey all,

I am a little late to the game here, but I finally upgraded to the 1.40 beta and installed the OHC rockchip Kodi 15.2 that is recommended for this version. I like it, but I have a few issues. I'll list the 3 issues I have and maybe somebody that knows more than I do could help me solve these issues.

1. Every 5 - 10 minutes, it seems there is a stutter in the video playing where it will flicker between 2 frames back and forth a few times. It seems like it happens when there's a camera change in the video. The audio continues fine, and it only happens for a second or so, then the video picks up fine. How can I stop this flicker / stutter?

2. Sometimes the video will slow down and get behind the audio big time. I think after 5 - 10 seconds it fixes itself, or I can stop and restart the video, then it works fine. This doesn't happen too often. Is there a fix for this?

3. This is very minor: when I play an hevc h.265 10 bit file, it starts green for the first 5 seconds, then plays fine. Is there a fix for this? Not a big deal on this, though.

I ask because I've seen people on this forum say that this rockchip version of kodi 15.2 plays everything perfect for audio and video. I can't tell about the audio, because I don't have a home theater system, but I would like the video to work perfectly at least, if there is a way. I've tried disabling the libstagefright (forget the exact name) on the hardware acceleration, but that didn't seem to do anything....i still have the same problems. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Ian

My first guess is HDMI problems... could be cable, HDMI ports, AVR vs Chameleon HDMI settings.

Some focus on problems and faults others on solutions and success... no question who is the happy one.

Chameleon 16GB SD 32GB micro SD <-->HDMIv1.3<-->Onkyo TX-NR1010<-->HDMIv1.3<-->Panasonic TX-P46S10 + 6 Bowers & Wilkins speakers.
10 NTFS 2TB USB drives on 3 hubs attached to a A400, 2 Seagate blackarmour NAS 3TB, 2 Seagate Central NAS 4TB.

Thanks for your reply. I doubt it's that, because it worked fine before I upgraded to 1.40 beta. I will try switching the HDMI cables and researching the thread regardless. Thanks again

Like I said a guess, but they could have modified the HDMI handshake routine in 1.4Beta.
