wrxtasy edit: Solved !
Playing videos with subtitles enabled causing dropped frames.
I was using Libreelec [8.90.4] on a Minix U9 ( S912 ) but it's important to note that the bug can be reproduced on Krypton too using build 188.8.131.52 (2017-10-28) from kszaq.
I've also reported this bug in the official Kodi forums yesturday and it's already closed with the following comments from peak3d :
- I tested the sample movie with subtitles visible on odroid-C2.
For this test I added the drop:0/1 log item to RenderUpdate log line.
I played the movie 3 times (latest kodi master) without any drop, but on a 60hz monitor (no 23.9 capabable device available.
- From debug log it seems to be kszaq's LE build wich is modified regarding AML video pipeline in many places. Because of this I suggest that you place the issue in LE forum / or directly in kszaq's git branch.
I hope you guys can look into it as it's obvious that team Kodi won't / can't help here.
I imagine 99,9% of the developers don't watch movies / tvshows with subtitles but I'm sure there are a whole lot of people who do so please dear developers try to fix this as it's nothing more annoying as watching something with dropped frames
