so i have LE running on a 4gb Rpi4 connected to a LG C9 TV running Hyperion service in the background for the diy-Ambilight. My media is stored on a USB3 WD 3.5" external hard drive.
I solved my initial problem of LE just flatout crashing after a couple of seconds by switching system resolution from 4k to 1080p60. It will however still crash as soon as i play any video without adjusting framerates after a couple of seconds of playback (apparently it's a problem with hyperion+60hz+rpi4). Not a big deal since most content i watch is 23.9fps anyway. So i've enabled adjust refresh rate change to 'always' and finally videos do play... well, sort of...
The problem is that playback is really choppy and checking the OSD status reveals that instead of the desired 23.9fps the playback framerate floats around the 10fps mark. What's weird is that the cpu at the same time sits at a comfy <20% load. And i am talking 1080p h.264 content, so nothing that should give the rpi4 any trouble..
i have tried disabling hardware acceleration in the playback menu but that just bumps up the cpu load. The 10fps problem persists.Checking the logs also did not reveal anything out of the ordinary.
i thought that it might have to do with the fact that the rpi4 is running an emby server and that playback on the same machine might cause some trouble but even when i play the video via the kodi file explorer from its physical location i get the same problem.
any ideas/help would be much appreciated.
