Picture Slideshow not Working on 9.0.3

Trying to get the picture slideshow running on 9.0.3 (Odroid C2), but the slideshow doesn’t play. It does appear to load the first picture, but heavily dimmed. Also can’t navigate to the next picture, it just is stuck on the dim first picture. Pictures are just simple jpegs.

Trying the same on the Kodi (18.3) PPA for Ubuntu (18.04 x64) works fine. Image proper brightness and slideshow starts.

Before I try to get logs, can someone confirm if pictures is working for them?
