Tested the release on my Raspberry Pi 4 (4GB) with the provided firmeware updates. Pretty much played anything I did throw at it without a problem.
The only kind of media it seem to have problems are h264 10bit encodes (with SDR content; yuv420p10le). I think it uses the hardware acceleration at least partially, but it still drops frames. One core seems to busy at nearly 100%, so I guess some part in the pipeline is currently single threaded? Is there room for improvement for h264 10bit playback on the RPi4?
With the current libreelec build (7.95.2) bluetooth for the Intel 8265 card is not working. This currently affects my Kaby Lake i3 NUC.

I looked into the /lib/firmware/intel folder and couldn't find the ibt-12-16.sfi or ibt-12-16.ddc firmware files that got into the linux kernel with commit 87941021a622c882b1921df85d6115940a4e568a. It seems that the Intel 8265 need those files to work.
