how's that sound?

The only solution is to have a PI with more main memory Wink


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - Milhouse - 2012-10-10

What about the addition of some swap...? Is memory availability mainly a problem when caching new thumbnails (OMX resource errors etc.)? If so I'd take a hit on thumbnail conversion performance (which should be a fairly rare event once the library has been scanned, etc.) if it means the GUI can be run at native resolution.

1.) You can't swap GPU memory.
2.) Software image decoding is too slow, you don't wanna have that.

gimli,
can you check this ? what do you think is the problem?

That is know and on my ( long ) TODO list.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - fernandovg - 2012-10-10

Is there any issue/bug created at GITHUB about that problem?

Yes, in our trac http://trac.xbmc.org/ticket/13378

I can't see why the 720p -> 1080p scaling issue can't be toggled on/off in the settings for those who don't want to use it?

But i do. Running out of GPU memory will cuase a lot of strange errors and frustrate users.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - Trixster - 2012-10-10

It's perhaps more frustrating to not be given the option? Perhaps it could be offered through one of the configuration files and not through the menus, thus only being available to users who don't mind doing a bit of research, tinkering and putting up with instabilities? Just to remove it with no recourse seems a little drastic.

1.) You are going to deal with bug reports out of that ?
2.) Embeded is another world. There we have to work with tricks. And this is one of those.

In answer 1) clearly not, however I hardly see that giving users an option is a bad thing, as long as its clearly stated that it's unsupported and may result in unforeseen issues. As regards to 2) well, I'm not a programmer or developer so ill have to take your word for that.
Which is the last build that played 1080p videos at 1080?

When your settings are 1080p then video is player in 1080p, only the GUI is scaled.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - Trixster - 2012-10-10

Really? In which case I apologise for the cross examination, I've clearly been getting myself mixed up. I thought 1080p videos were being rendered at 720p then upscaled to 1080. My bad.

Maybe i should have mentioned that and say it clear that the GUI scaling only belongs to GUI and not video rendering.
