Kodi/SPMC Khadas Vim specific


#1

Hi,
Auto refresh rate change does not seem to work in Kodi or spmc on the Khadas Vim,can this be added as this is an important feature if you play a variety of videos with different refresh rates ie 24hz Movies,50hz Euro TV and 60hz for US TV,the box should automatically adjust.

Hi, Bennett83:
Did you mean the Kodi in Android? or LibreELEC one?

Edit:
I think It’s Android Kodi, as you create the topic in Android Category.

Hi,

Thanks for your quick reply,yes it’s Android,for whatever reason a lot of android devices don’t automatically switch so some streams/videos don’t run smoothly,for example if the display within Android is set to 1080p 60hz then only US streams look okay (60hz),UK TV (50hz) or movies (24hz) don’t look correct.

I know Libreelec does this automatically.

Just took a check at Kodi official website, found there was a Kodi-17 RC release now.

PS: you can uninstall the Kodi preinstall in the Android, and install the new one by yourself.

Hi Gouwa and comunity

In the latest firmware I have two questions:
In the kodi 17.3, in the Exodus view it is not fluid, it is constantly choking and slow-motion type, how to resolve? In others box`s with chip 905x no have this problem. Guys could you help me?
