Build Highlights:
  1. New firmware
    popcornmix Wrote:I've pushed a firmware update that improves (hopefully) the omxplayer framerate synching.
    Previously we would control the render vs vsync time for exact and double framerates (e.g. 24fps on 24Hz or 30fps on 60Hz) but not for 2.5 times framerate (24fps on 60Hz).
    With the update we handle the 2.5 times case.

    It's subtle, but I think it makes 24fps on 60Hz look a bit smoother (e.g. with panning). Obviously not as good as using a true 24Hz display.
  2. New 3.17.4 kernel

  1. Firmware (Nov 22):
