Now playback of videos in picture slideshows has a new bug.
The Video is played and returns nicely to the next picture when it is finished BUT:

The playback of the video is interrupted each second for half a second - so it stumbles all along...
I found out by chance that when you move the mouse while the video is playing the video plays nicely and smooth.

The problem is not with the videos. Because when I play the video OUTSIDE of slideshow it plays nicely - and of course in other players like vlc.

Please help
With kind regards

I'm having similar issue after updating OSMC from Kodi 16 to Kodi 17. I tried fresh OSMC install but issue remained. I also switched to OpenElec with Kodi 16 and the problem went away. Therefore I think it is a Kodi 17 specific issue.

I'm having a similar problem too.

During the video playback in picture slideshow, I can only hear audio and not watch image.

I use Kodi in a Rasperry Pi3, under LIbreElec o.s. v7.95.3 BETA

Any suggestion to resolve this issue ?

Still same result in Version 17.1
This is in the Windows Version.

Tried now also with 17.1 on the Raspberry. There it is a bit different. No picture just black screen but sound is playing normally when a video is played inside a playlist.

With kind regards. Martin Klein
