X265 blurred line at the bottom


M8S Pro+ 905x CoreELEC 8.99.2

I see one problem when decoding a lot of x265 1080p content, in the last few lines at the bottom are copies of each other forming a blurred line, i think is when the content has a height which is not a multiple of 8. .
I’d like to know if anyone else has seen it and if you know how to fix it, thank you.


The software I wrote crops to either 8 of 16 bits depending on whether I am using hardware encoding. On some players you get a pink or green border if its not a multiple of 8 or 16


In other words, it’s an issue with your content in conjunction with hardware decoding limitations. This is not a CE issue.


Okay, thank you very much, that blur line doesn’t get very annoying either, as long as it’s not a horrible green thing. :rofl:


i confirmed i also have this same blue, but not only on x265 content with below devices / software: Plex -> PlexKodiConnect -> CE on Sony TV-KD 65X600E

I’m also curious if there is way to “fix” this but understood it’s not a CE related issue.


I’ve tried cutting the 4 pixels that are left over at the bottom editing the mkv header with the MKVToolnix since it has that option, but it seems that Kodi (and many other players) doesn’t read that information but you can try with your devices.


You cant just edit the header in mkvtoolnix the only option is to recode :frowning:
