Video Stuttering

Unread postby 3rd » Wed Sep 13, 2017 9:53 am

I am new to the SBC community and just recently received my C2 board. I plan to use this to stream movies through Kodi using the Plex add on connecting to my Plex media server, as well as connecting my movies NAS through Kodi. I have been experiencing issues with video stuttering when watching some movies. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
3rd

You have to supply more information.
Which OS image? Android? Ubuntu? LibreELEC?
video format, bit-rate, resolution and FPS of the problematic movie files.

I am running Android Lollipop. I installed Kodi through the Google Play Store.

.mkv 60mbps h264
.mkv 10mbps 1080P

H.264 decoding is limited at 30fps.

I did some further testing of my C2. I removed my emmc and installed the LibreELEC image onto a mirco SD card. Play the same video files and they played very smooth without any stuttering. Is there differences in between the Kodi version 17.4 from the play store vs LibreELEC Kodi 17.3?

Hardware decoder API could be different.
If you press o key while you play a video file, you can see whether Kodi uses HW decoder or SW decoder at least.
