Hyperion issue: playback slowdown and halting.

  • No luck with 8.1.1, I recall reading in another thread that this is related to the kernel governer, is raybunyu using the same governer?

  • Yes


    EDIT:


    Tested with latest raybunyu's krypton 15.3 on my odroid C2 and no issues with hyperion after i edited my advanced settings.

    What edits did you make to the advanced settings?

    I only removed kernel log spam by request. Please note that Hyperion does not work in Raybuntu's Krypton build, only in Leia - at least that's what Marciano reported.

    kszaq i edited my post earlier and did a later test with latest raybuntu's build and i have no issues after i modified my advancedsettings..

    Don't know if that was related but issues no more.


    Sorry for confusion.

  • What edits did you make to the advanced settings?

    Code
    1. <cache>
    2. <buffermode>1</buffermode>
    3. <memorysize>157286400</memorysize>
    4. <readfactor>40</readfactor>
    5. </cache>

    I put this in my advancedsettings.


    After this i have no more lags or slowdowns or freezes with hyperion and live tv and other local media...

    I also did some changes with smoothing in my hyperion.config.json

    Running this for a week now and all good.


    rb-krypton15.3 odroid C2.

  • Unfortunately i was watching a x265 local movie over the network with hyperion and the issue was there with rb-krypton15.3.


    I didn't have this issue past week.

    It comes about 1 hour watching movie then the movie going slowdown and lag and eventually it freezes.


    Will try tomorrow with a x264 file.

  • Marciano , i believe that issue related to framebuffer handling, not to caching.


    kszaq , thank you for klog fix! Pity that it didn't help. Hope somebody skilled will decide to investigate this problem someday :) For now, there is no working Hyperion on Amlogic LE..

    Edited once, last by vevs ().

  • Question. Is the AV out always active? Or does it work only if no HDMI cable is connected? I have unfortunately no AV cable with my box with it, and can not test it unfortunately. If both are active, I would connect my AV Grabber for testing to the AV Out.

  • I just tried hyperion from the LE repo. Played a 2 hour 1080p dtshd movie without any issues. I didnt change anything in the advancedsettings.xml.


    My system:

    M8s ii 2/8 gb

    8.0.2e (internal nand)


    I'll keep on testing:shy:


    Edit: livetv stuttering after ca 10 minutes


    Edit2: livetv stuttering gone. Could have been a crane in front of the dish:dodgy:


    Edit3: i have to correct myself. I have also got the stuttering. The settings marciano postet didnt have any effect

  • The effect is obviously there in all AML builds. I have it for weeks on my C2 and on my M8S II. From what I see, it is totally random and has nothing to do with bitrate or codec (264/265) or build. What generally helps is to lower the frequency in Hyperion and obviously the window size. In my setup I typically have it once every 2-4 hours, but can also be right after five minutes. It seems to be tricky, as lot of people reported it, but is has not been caught yet. So, I am afraid, patience is the way to go.
