ok so ive opened a thread over at the dev section here :


now we wait and see what happens , i sure hope they take this request seriously so aracnoz and madshi can help to get this big issue solved not to mention finally dsplayer build receiving the attention it deserves

i dont think this would help any with the current issue , right ?


It is mainly madVR issue though. I doubt any changes in Kodi would do anything with how madVR rendered and stored frames in advance. Asking Kodi dev to do anything with issue about how madVR works probably won't get anywhere. Especially you are telling other players have the same problem.

I'm quite sure DSPlayer will stay unofficial build and won't get merged into main branch. There are many reasons , mainly it's windows-only , rely on a lot of external elements. While Kodi try to be build as multi-platform and be a complete package as possible. So I saw nothing indicates this would change.

Also migrate to DX11 won't help much in this issue. As madshi said it's how madVR designed to operates. And probably only him who could make significant change to this issue.

For now It maybe probably better to go with previous aracnoz approach. Stop playback when you go back to main menu. I see no benefit of bring up main menu during playback. OK it's cool fancy stuff but is it really serve any purpose? Playback control menu is what we only need during playback and it works really fine here with no noticable lag..

Also good luck with finding Kodi windows dev. Last I heard there was only 1 dev working on specific windows build.
