or more and not have to put another SD-Card in the back to have more then 8GB storage.

We will prepare a firmware to flash to SD-Card with latest 1119 firmware when we back to office tomorrow.

Type this code in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7tpbLTlLaq8

And why a 4k video with only a bitrate of 5545 Kbps, why not 4K video with a bitrate of 50,0 Mbps (thats 50000 Kbps) or more?

Even the Minix Neo X8-H can play 50,0 Mbps 4K movies without any problems.

Even my 1080P MKV movies are 10,0 Mbps or higher, 5000 Kbps is nothing even much older Android TV Boxes can play that.

Here is a 50 Mbps movie: https://mega.co.nz/#!cptAnbgT!RL0Z5FQBbz...Soggiu8sEU

I believe this is a HEVC 60fps sample used by our reseller. As why it is 5545 Kbps, I am really not sure.

We tested 100Mbps H.264 video before, http://demo-uhd3d.com/files/4k/4K_HD.Clu...-2013.zip, it is playing smoothly.

I believe there is still room for improvement on 4K playback.

Even all my Movies that have DTS 5.1 is now Dolby Digital 5.1 :-)

But DTS 5.1 is of course much better :-)

We are also eager to see DTS passthrough work in SPMC and eventually Kodi.

But my movies do not run well they are stuttering badly in beta-kodi-rk3288-20141107, i have stuttering every second, like it
has problems with buffering from my NAS true SMB protocol.


UPDATE: stuttering goes away when i disable Passthrough in XBMC (Kodi) :-(

Is there a fix for that thanks.

When you enable passthrough and transcode DD, it will take up resources on the CPU, hence stutter. It will be even obvious if the source is 7.1. I would suggest if you can to use NFS instead of SMB protocol because NFS is faster as what we've observed so far.

Thanks for feedback this, we will try to reproduce this.

I do not have this problem when i go into Kodi and then to SMB to my NAS.

This sounds like video started too early, not enough pre-buffer or SMB performance need to be tuned on Native Player. We will feedback this to RockChip. Thanks.

Please try the new firmware http://forum.openhourlab.com/showthread.php?tid=257 and see whether it is improving.

Sh*t that i cannot use URL yet. Mod Edit to make that work

Yes it's me for Video Youtube OPEN HOUR Chameleon Play 4K HEVC 60Fps
it's not constant bitrate but variable in 4K HEVC 60FPS
Bit rate : 5 059 Kbps
Maximum bit rate : 25,9 Mb/s

If you have file HEVC 60fps in 50Mbps i can test Wink
