WeTek Hub - 24p HD Netflix - HD Kodi Audio - 10bit HEVC - Lollipop - 4K

DroidELEC forgot to let on that with test Marshmallow Firmware on the Hub, the Android TV OS version of Netflix will give you Ultra-HD 4K reliably with nice smooth video playback. No modded .apk App needed. Audio was 2.0 last time I tested.

Android Marshmallow comes with HDCP2.2 copy protection additions, so Ultra-HD 4K Online DRM streaming services get supported so long as you have a device with Widevine Level 1 DRM and Netflix Approvals.

Also AVR's and HDMI 2.0 Displays have to also support HDCP 2.2 as well, although there are HDCP adapters available to work around the issue.

Audio is 5.1 if the hdmi sink connected is able to handle that format (like an avr)

Hi all, what about 1080p hevc on Netflix? As reported by @ChristianTroy with the last Android 6.0 dev build it should work. Can someone confirm to have it working? Should I have the top subscription to have it working maybe?

I believe Netflix only uses HEVC compressed video streaming when playing back 4K Ultra-HD on a 2160p HEVC capable decoding device.
And Ultra-HD Netflix works with this MM Firmware

For 1080p streams H.264/AVC is used.
And yes regular 1080p streams playback perfectly fine with Marshmallow test Firmware when using the Android TV OS version of Netflix.
Netflix 5.1 Audio is only available if connected to an AVR on the Hub with test MM Firmware.

Hi, wrxtasy i was also convinced about this until @ChristianTroy point this out, so I've searched and it seems that some movies are also encoded in hevc at 1080p resolution (6.96 Mbit) Smile

Unfortunately the sample video in anandtech's article is not available, at least in my countrySmile kernel log report h264 codec for all video that I've played so I was wondering if it depends on my line (as I think :'( ) , subscription or something else..

AWESOME Big Grin I can confirm that with 6.0 devel firmware Netflix works also in 1080p hevc:
Code:

What was the problem? the subscription: to get hevc (also in 1080p) you need the top plan 11.99 in my country, i want to say thank you to ChristianTroy to point that netflix should work also in 1080p hevc. Before changing the plan i always get codec:h264.

I'm (somewhat) interested in the Wektek Hub to install LibreElec on to it.

How easy is it to install LibreElec onto a brand-new Wektek Hub that doesn't have OpenElec on it? I mean, straight from the box 'brand new'.

AND..How many hard drives can it handle at once? (I've got 4 currently, going to add a 5th soon onto my Dune Base 3.0)

Be aware there is currently a bad LibreELEC Kodi memory leak causing major issues on ALL 1GB AMLogic devices that is still unresolved, such as seen here:
http://www.wetekforums.com/v/index.php?p...full-crash
http://www.wetekforums.com/v/index.php?p...-using-pkc

The AML LibreELEC developers are well aware of the problem but still have not found the root cause of the issue. Running Android seems unaffected.
If you are a Power user I do not recommend going down the 1GB media player path.

The memory leak is on all AML devices. It just takes longer to happen on 2GB, but it will eventually happen.

With LibreELEC is there a way to set up the power button with one press to turn off the Hub? Right now it brings up power options Off, timer,reboot and idle shutdown.

I think with Android it turned it off this way..

Thanks

There actually is. Install the keymap editor addon and change the mapping/action of the power button. It's working for me.

Or create a xml file in userdata\keymaps and paste in the following:
Code:
<keymap>
    <global>
        <keyboard>
            <key id="61467">back</key>
            <key id="61662">shutdown</key>
        </keyboard>
    </global>
</keymap>
This works on both my Wetek Hub devices. Note that this also changes the behaviour of the back key

I'll check this out. Thanks

Been playing around today with Marshmallow Firmware on the Hub and came across a Bug fixed SPMC(Kodi Jarvis) v16.4.82.

You get 4K Netflix with 5.1 DD+ Audio (if AVR used) with this test Firmware Smile

amcodec hardware acceleration works on this SPMC version. Hardware deinterlacing also works. 720/1080p 10bit HEVC content plays without any problems now and 23.976fps video @ 1080p60Hz is super smooth. Its very good for movies this MM AML Hub Firmware.

Increased speed and snappiness is also very noticeable. Especially when using a Wireless Remote. :-)

Details over HERE

Has the memory leak issue in Libreelec been fixed for the Wetek Hub?
