RE: 2018 - Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K - Avds - 2020-04-06

Hey guys nice thread and some very helpful info.
Will the fritschfiretv build on the first post work for me if i am not using 7.1 audio? to fix the audio delay in kodi.
I just have the firestick connected to tv and use tv speakers for audio.

@jubilex can you pls. check this version: http://mirrors.kodi.tv/test-builds/android/arm/kodi-20200405-bea61309-leia_ndk2jni-armeabi-v7a.apk ?
If this still works, we can merge the PR for kodi 18.7

Brilliant I will try it in a bit. Thanks for all your hard work.

Yes, I should be able to do this tonight. Do you need a log or just checking various files and reporting back?

Just looking if it works is fine, the backport was not that easy and could be not working.

All files I tried with this version displayed correctly -- 4:3, 16:9, 2.40:1, mkv, mov, Avi, mp4. Was I only checking for correct aspect ratios? I noticed no issues at all but I only spent a few moments on each video.

is there a method to read ntfs formatted hard drives and watch hd movies (without root)?

I picked this official backport up and rebased on top.

hi,

dunno if its relevant to the disscussion but your latest Version http://mirrors.kodi.tv/test-builds/android/arm/kodi-20200407-ac3dbb41-fritschfiretv-armeabi-v7a.apk gives me a black screen when starting a serie or movie with mediacodec (surface) enabled. all is fine when disabling mc (surface)


RE: 2018 - Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K - fritsch - 2020-04-11

Tried h264, mpeg2, h265 8 bit, h265 10 bit including yellifish and HDR. Everything works fine with Mediacodec Surface. Therefore: It's your personal issue for now. As you did not bother posting your Debug Log, it might stay that way :-)


RE: 2018 - Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K - jubilex - 2020-04-12

So just to make sure I understand, the aspect ratio fix is now in the main Kodi, but the audio delay fix will always only be in your Fire TV builds?


RE: 2018 - Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K - fritsch - 2020-04-12

Audio-Delay fix is in Matrix (upcoming v19) and ported in my fritschfiretv version.
Aspect-Ratio is in Leia (will be in 18.7 and in Matrix)

Audio-Delay won't be in official Leia, because it breaks workarounds for non-standard firmware that we still support in Leia. Concrete example: if you install fritschfiretv build on an older AMLogic device, passthrough would be broken.


RE: 2018 - Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K - jubilex - 2020-04-12

Ok, thanks! So I'll stick with your fire TV builds until I'm ready for Matrix.

Thanks for all your work.
