I’m using a VIM2 and I’m having lags with Kodi on Android, it has small freezes of let’s say 1/10 second every 2 seconds. One after another. It doesn’t run smooth. So I was thinking that the problem is because Kodi is running over Android and there is a problem with the GPU driver (but I really have no idea what is behind).
Then I make a comparison with a Raspberry running OpenELEC with the same movie (720p) on Kodi, and there was a huge difference, no lags with the RPi3…
So I started to read about to test the VIM2 with LibreELEC (not done yet), and I found the following, link below:
" Amlogic has not released fbdev Mali libraries and has no plans to release them. These builds use libhybris and Android gralloc Mali driver to provide OpenGL for Kodi - this is an experimental approach with CPU overhead - this means suboptimal GPU performance.
If you consider buying a device for LE, do not buy Amlogic S912!
Issues: Kodi may sometimes crash or restart "
Then I found this:
I have to say I become a little worried. The performance of Kodi over Android was not the expected, and it is clear that is not running smooth. Is there a was to fix it? I have only installed Kodi on Android, so there isn’t any app making “noise” in the background.
