I’m not sure I’m posting in the right category, I can move the thread if needed.
I’ve been using CoreELEC 9.2.8 on an S905X box (2GB RAM) for a while, and it worked perfectly fine (with the exception of the VPN manager losing its settings every now and then), until the SD card I’ve been using reached its natural end of life.
I reinstalled CoreELEC, using version 19.5, but I noticed that it’s significantly slower. MP4 videos play almost fine, but all H264 and H265 stutter noticeably. Out of curiosity, I took another card and installed version 9.2.8 on it, and everything runs smoothly.
I tried to tinker with the settings, and I found out that some videos (not all) play fine when the amlogic hardware acceleration is disabled. Other videos play even too fast, the majority is just as slow as before.
Is this a known issue? I’m using Kodi without addons, except for the VPN Manager, so I don’t think that the slowdown could be cause by an addon, but I wouldn’t be able to say what the root cause of the issue could be.
