For users who uses subtitles and ready to test changes:
Please update to latest nightly build, remove you dirty regions settings and test subtitles and all what you use. And don’t forget to report if you have some regression
Note: first subtitle is not fixed(it’s kodi issue), only fixed problem with subtitles stuttering.
P.S.: some neutral or positive comments also can be left to know that somebody tested it
Tested this nightly, works great*, same as your CoreELEC-Amlogic.arm-9.0-devel-1551544406 that I tested 7 days ago.
Works without advancedsettings.xml, same as stable version with dirtyregions set to 0 in advancedsettings.xml.
Great job, and if it works for everybody else as it does for me - fantastic job
Edit * except for a strange Netflix glitch, the same as in former devel version; after about 10 seconds upon starting the first video Netflix addon crushed. Just waited for background service to start again, started Netflix and all videos after that played without problems.
OK, but since I’m here testing your nightly with a beta version of Netflix addon (plugin.video.netflix_0.14.0beta22) using this only for testing purpose it’ll take me some time. Maybe a stable version (plugin.video.netflix-master_0.13.22) does not have that problem.
Btw, that addon is a constant work in progress, as Netflix keeps constantly changing things
Just to mention, another peculiarity/difference about your nightly (20190306) on an USB stick, and my daily driver (nightly 20190222) on SD card:
Updated today the same NF version 0.14.0beta21 to new 0.14.0beta22.
On USB stick with nightly 20190306 after update the NF addon installed NEW libwidevinecdm.so.
On SD card with nightly 20190222 after update the NF addon did not install new libwidevinecdm.so.
On both, SD and USB NF works OK, the one with new and the one with old libwidevinecdm.so
Switched to an Android Box recently, and noticed some microstutters that I started to realize happened with subs enabled. Was told to give this a try. Just installed and will comment after some testing if fixed or not.
