Chromium?

  • also at youtube ?

    could you share the output of chrome://gpu (top section is enough)?

    Here it is:

  • do you use nvidia ? if you use intel did you set the setting to intel at the addon settings ?

    I did select intel at the addon settings. Even try all others settings combination too but still got video tearing in youtube and netflix also.

  • Do you use an recent Milhouse build? If so that problem is normal as the addon was build against some older version.

    Yes, I use a most recent one. So I need older version of Kodi 18 to correct this issue?


    Thanks.

  • Can confirm, that with an older version of milhouse and Xorg (tested with 407), hardware acceleration is working for me with intel kaby lake.

  • I need to reconstruct the whole build process after those merges lately, then it should be usable again with latest milhouse. I try to do it asap.

  • Many thx CvH !

    Can confirm that hw acceleration now works with recent milhouse (LE9) build.

    Problem is, i cant get audio to work with version 3 (neither with default nor with custom settings) - with version 2 audio worked for me with custom audio device and hdmi:CARD=PCH.

  • I've run the final installation method zip. Chrome runs, widevine seems correctly installed as I can stream video on ziggogo.tv. It doesn't use hardware decoding though. I'm running millhouse LE9, a build without xorg (or did I misunderstand that change). In the GPU output I see that hardware decoding is disabled, yet it doesn't say unavailable. So it should be possible on my hardware, this is an oldish celeron NUC 847dye. When I run Cloudready ChromeOS and install Widevine I can stream full HD without issues in Chrome.


    Anything I can do to get this sorted out?

  • I have installed #0626 which should have Chrome. But the repo has not been rebuild yet. I installed your last zip again and things are different now. See Photo. Intel is selected in settings.
