I have an odd issue with 4k video on my Odroid N2.
I have only seen the issue on 4k hevc vidoes, not on any 720p or 1080p content.
If I pause the video, or if the video fades to a completely black screen during the playback, the video starts to stutter and the audio goes out of sync. If I skip back or ahead 10 seconds the issue dissapears until I pause again or another completely black sequence of the film.
Anyone seen anything similar, or has ideas for a fix?
I’m having the same problem on N2+ with CE 19.5. The stutter is really light and corrected by a 10 sec skip but I’d rather not having it at all.
Do you know if this issue is still there on CE20 ?
If you want debug log I can try to provide it
FWIIW experiencing the same with the latest CE20.0 release build on my N2+: if there are subs in the stream (in my case the subs are embedded in the mkv) and the media paused, it starts to stutter after resuming. a -10s jump fixes it.
As a complete hack ‘fix’ - can I suggest my addon - https://kodi.wiki/view/Add-on:Unpause_Jumpback - you can use that to automate the jump back after pause (get it to jump back after any pause, and jump back a minimal amount). That should at leat help, functionally speaking, until the problem is solved.
yeah, i’ve always had this issue on the N2 on core elec leia/matrix, but i usually do a 30s back and then 10s forward (which always resyncs everything) because going back 10s would sometimes still have the stutter. i’ve noticed this on embedded and external subs downloaded by a4ksubtitles. i can post more when i upgrade to THE NEXUS but ain’t no thing.
I had written about this more than a year ago, but the devs haven’t been able to reproduce it, so i started to suspect something else might be causing it. Because while most people have N2, i have GT king pro, so it might not even be the device (at least not the only reason)
Just to check with others this is happening, i am using an LG 4k TV, and also passthrough audio to a Pioneer AVR. Wondering if either of these might be part of the reason. I dont suppose everyone with this problem has LG TV for example?
