Full Version: VDPAU causes Kodi to freeze in Debian Buster with an ATI Radeon HD 5450

Kodi worked a treat with hardware acceleration (VDPAU) in Debian Stretch with an ATI HD 5450.

Made the mistake of upgrading an otherwise fine installation to Buster. Now, > 50% when trying to play a video with VDPAU enabled, the display will freeze. Killing and restarting Kodi brings it back to life.

On the times that playing a video doesn't hang Kodi, skipping forward in the video almost invariably causes the above.

Any ideas? I'm now using:

17.6 Debian package version: 2:17.6+dfsg1-4+b1 Media Center Kodi from Debian

Disabling all hw encoding and playback is fine, but is at or beyond the limits of what the CPU can do.

Upgrade mesa. Distro problem, nothing we can do.
