OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi (Kodi 17.0)
hello, im new here so sorry. I have latest build #1216. Did you guys find user inverface laggy if you just back key from movie so it play in background UI? Its normal on Pi2? is there some trick to pause if i go to user interface?any tips and tricks? thanks for your hard work devs!
...seems you have a similarly problem like me to play a video in #1216, castaway.
I am back to #1001, this old build from the first October sucks.
Have two RPi2, one from both have only the funktion for testing newer, daily nightly builds.

but for all that, i test in future new builds, to find the best way out of roundabout.
I'm lucky to help here, awesome ;-)


btw castaway,
always to use 3 sd-cards
1) openELEC 6 from http://openelec.tv/get-openelec
2) latest good build (for me) untouched
3) sd card only for nightly builds/updates frome here

so it is verry simple to say - problem is in recent builds yes or not without update new and go back to my favorite build.
clever? :-)
for me very fast.

We deliberately limit GUI fps when video is playing to avoid harming video playback.
You can disable this in video/acceleration settings ("Limit GUI updates during playback").

Or just press the stop key before navigating the GUI.
i will keep eye on #1001 but that Limit GUI settings seems legit to me. I was few days on xbian and it pause playback in background if i pressed back key ( i liked it). I will try set gpu_mem to 320MB i read some articles that it is good for Pi2, Also i know i should be on stable build as im new here but if i see newer version i simply must have it and i love to experiment alsoSmile. Thanks! still exploring this whole new world Smile

@Milhouse

As I previously mentioned I am currently having problems with icon transparency since switching to builds later than #1213 where using following specific suggested commands in #1216 and then back in #1213 (Which appeared to run OK) does not appear to have resolved icon transparency issue.

Code:
find /storage/.kodi/userdata/Thumbnails -type f -mtime -1 -delete
texturecache.py Xd

Apologies for being a pain, can you clarify exactly what I need to do, or is it that I just ignore keep updating and in future build icon transparencies will be correct again? I am currently on #1213

There's a time component in the command ("-mtime -1" - match files modified during the previous 1 day) so the longer you leave it the less likely it is to work.

If you run the following commands today (17 December) it will delete all Thumbnail files created since 13 December:
Code:
find /storage/.kodi/userdata/Thumbnails -type f -mtime -4 -delete
texturecache.py Xd
That sorted it in #1213 thank you, then after correction of transparencies I jumped forward to #1216 and also correct CoolCool

Perhaps it's possible to stop text from scrolling when a player is active on single-core platforms such as the Pi1 that are more sensitive to GUI updates.

CPU usage very high when horizontal text scroll happen.
To reproduce, create an empty folder, name it with a long character string or/and rename a music/video file with a long string.

Compare CPU usage between no scrolling and a scrolling name with debug or ssh/top

With my RPi1-512 overclocked at 1000 I get:
Low: 15-20%
High:65-75%
When I play HD multichannel music I get drops.

I still can't play some files, a lot of drops due to scrolling text.
Is there any improvement in the new build, fix or workaround?
For you information, still the same issue with OpenELEC K* build #1216
With ssh, top, nothing playing:
No scroll text, CPU ~ 10-15%
With scroll, CPU ~75-95% .... and drops when playing :-(
Config, audio player only:
2T HDD <USB> RPi2/Kodi <HDMI> Denon AVR-2313 <HDMI> LG TV 55UF860V

I believe it's possible to sync, although the joystick won't work in Kodi on RPi (no xorg, so no SDL) but should work with emulators.

Hi,
i'm not able to switch audio options in menue from the 7,5 GB DVD "TinaTurnerLiveFrom Holland"
DVD starts, options are available, if i wont to switch the video stoped. Sorry
MiniDVD works now perfect.

kind regards Harald

Support might be coming soon with garbear's input pull request.
In SPMC, on my Firestick, if you press the back button during playback of a streaming video it stops the video and takes you back to the previous page. In OpenELEC if I press the back button during playback the video keeps playing even though I'm now on the previous page. It can be difficult to stop the video (my wife would never be able to do it...God bless her..Wink). It would be nice to have this feature in OpenELEC.

Just a wish/request.

Have a great day everyone.
Bob

That is just done by remote mapping. You need to map the back key on remote to stop.

I'd recommend gpu_mem=144 for a 512M Pi. 256 is recommended for a 1G Pi2.

Sorry, setting this memory does not help.
Setting buffer mode to 3 does also not help.
With more available RAM it is possible to watch the videos longer,
but the result is the same, the system rans out of memory.
I wonder if some other user has the same issue?

I think i downgrade to some older version,
for the same test.
