RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 18.0) - hasenbolle - 2018-03-20

Just updated from LE8.2.4 to #319 on my Asrock J4205-ITX connected via HDMI.

For me the kodi gui is really slow. From 7 fps till 25fps when doing nothing in kodi. I also had that problem with build #314

In the log i see no indication for the slow fps. Any ideas?

"From 7 to 25 fps when doing nothing ...."

You want us to burn GPU cycles when "doing nothing"? This is called Dirty Regions, disable them to waste power and produce heat via: HOW-TO:Modify_dirty_regions (wiki)

Hey @Milhouse 

Just wanted to say "Thank You" (again) for your outstanding work you actually do and (at least for me) did for the last two years.

I changed my hardware from x86 to an AMLogic box and I'm really happy with it (so far).

It was always a pleasure using your builds  - even when things did not work as expected.
You always had a helping hand and useful hints for us, the users of your builds.

Keep up the great work and stay the nice and motivated person you are.

I (and I bet most of the other users as well) always appreciated that!

Maybe we'll meet again - with different hardware or different projects.

Until then - THANK YOU!!

Quote:Build Highlights:
  1. VAAPI support (HEVC, 10-bit etc.) for recent AMD GPUs
 
would be nice if you give this one a big round of testing, basically we now use a more modern code path for VAAPI on drivers that support it, which enables us for the first time to decode with VAAPI on mesa/radeon.
So for AMD, this means that you can now use VAAPI instead of VDPAU and it should support most of the things VDPAU did plus HEVC10 hardware decoding if your hardware is capable (since UVD 6, so about 3rd gen GCN). Generally speaking, you should no longer use VDPAU on AMD hardware.

It also affects intel GPUs, except there everything should work as before. NVIDIA is not affected since the binary drivers do not support VAAPI. 
1. Curious about what AMD graphics card will work 4k HEVC 10Bit on?
2. Can you see the HEVC 10Bit horizon for the KABYLAKE graphic layout?

EDIT: this is even more precise: https://www.x.org/wiki/RadeonFeature/#radeonuvdunifiedvideodecoderhardware ("Supports 10bit")

  Looks good.

@yol Kodi still uses VDPAU because VAAPI support is limited to intel only for X11.

Yes, this is being addressed as we speak. Sorry for the hiccup.


RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 18.0) - Kolabor - 2018-03-21

Sorry for asking in this topic, but is LibreELEC capable of playing HEVC/HDR movie properly using nvidia drivers? I was using LibreELEC 8.x and was told that video in Linux is 8 bit only at the moment. Was that changed is Kodi 18/LE 9.x?

 No and not planned.


RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 18.0) - Kolabor - 2018-03-22

Not planned on nvidia or LE 9.x or Kodi 18? Am I really tied to Kodi DSPlayer on Windows?


RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 18.0) - yol - 2018-03-22

I'll try to give some more details:
  • NVIDIA+Linux+HEVC10 hwdecoding is unsupported and not planned in Kodi (so by extension also in LibreELEC). VDPAU is dead and we have no one interested to work on CUVID - but we welcome contributions.
  • Intel/AMD+Linux+HEVC10(+HDR) hwdecoding is supported for output to 8-bit displays
  • HDR metadata passthrough to the display and also output to 10-bit displays is mostly not supported by Linux, so nothing we can do for the moment



RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 18.0) - Kolabor - 2018-03-22

Thank You @yol. So for now it's Windows only.
