If the problem started with 0803, then main change was the atempo commits.
With latest build, can you go into system/audio settings and try changing:
resample quality: Try gpu and medium
threshold for pitch correction: Try 0 (always enabled) and 100 (always disabled)

Tested with 0821 with medium resample quality and 100 treshold for pitch correction and voilà, no freezes!! Thanks a lot Popcormix!

Can you clarify exactly which of the four cases work and fail? i.e.
gpu resampling, threshold 0
gpu resampling, threshold 100
medium resampling, threshold 0
medium resampling, threshold 100

Also if you take one of the failing cases does disabling "sync playback to display" fix it?
Do you have PLL adjust enabled?

Frame drops following a subtitle in a new font is expected. Subsequent subtitles shouldn't cause a frame drop.

Ok, I'll retest this and raise a bug or forum thread if it's still a problem. It was a few months ago now, but it wasn't just a new font, it was every subtitle.

In general subtitles with mmal don't cause frame drops apart from the first subtitle.
Maybe there is something different with the dvb subs. If you have a sample file that shows the problem I can investigate.

Wifi connection very slow on Kryton

I am not sure if this has been addressed before but the wifi module for (Krypton) v7.90.004 and nightly build is very slow compare with (Jarvis) 16.1 V7.0.2. Playback is constantly buffering and navigating between menus are slow. There is no problem when connecting to LAN line.


Thanks.

Using one of these test builds test your WiFi network performance with iperf. If that's OK then upload a debug log captured while playing a movie. You can monitor real-time WiFi network bandwidth usage with "bcmstat.sh -iwlan0" (installed as standard in these builds).

Note that if you are using advancedsettings.xml to modify your video cache settings, the names of the settings changed in Kodi 17 so your advancedsettings.xml in Kodi 17 may be invalid resulting in reduced/slower caching: http://kodi.wiki/view/HOW-TO:Modify_the_...17_changes
The last few builds seem more unstable than usual. Kodi just crashed and rebooted in the middle of watching a DVD (never had that before). Crashlog: http://sprunge.us/LWVJ

Also, the DVD menus are still messed up, as reported here - 2388521 (post)

Can you narrow it down to a specific build? I'm not aware of anything that has changed recently that may cause this.

The crash backtrace isn't helpful:
Code:
Thread 1 (Thread 0x5aeff3a0 (LWP 1136)):
#0  0x00000000 in ?? ()
Backtrace stopped: previous frame identical to this frame (corrupt stack?)

I can try but those crashes are intermittent and hard to reproduce.

Hi Popcornmix,

gpu resampling, threshold 0 NG
gpu resampling, threshold 100 OK
medium resampling, threshold 0 NG
medium resampling, threshold 100 OK

Sync playback to display disabled:
gpu resampling, threshold 0 OK
medium resampling, threshold 0 OK

Not sure about PLL, how can I check?
Thank you.
(2016-08-25, 11:58)esco Wrote: [ -> ]Not sure about PLL, how can I check?
Thank you.

It is a setting in system/audio settings: "PLL adjustment to maintain audio/video sync". It defaults to disabled - what do you have it set to?

Correct, Estouchy is not included in LibreELEC.
