I'm using kodi since more than three years now and I am very fond of it. I am using it on my old and faithful laptop from 2008 which has a crappy intel integrated mhd-4500 gfx. Until jarvis all the versions used DXVA2 and so it took the load of the cpu. Now I know since jarvis that DX11 is being used and since the mhd-4500 only supports DX9, that's probably the reason DXVA2 is not enabled anymore.
In the acceleration settings DXVA-HD is no longer available, only DXVA.
On the kodi site it says that
Quote:Developer afedchin has gone through the long and arduous process of updating Kodi to DirectX 11, which brings with it support for modern tools and modern graphics cards, while maintaining backwards compatibility with old DirectX 9 cards.And in the comments Nathan says something like DXVA-HD is now called DXVA, so nothing changed.
But when I press "O" there it's no longer showing DXVA2 and the cpu load is way higher than with kodi 15.
Is there anything I can do, or do I need to buy some new hardware which I know is necessary, but with kodi 15.2 working flawlessly I don't want to.
Anyway thanks for everybody that's been working on Kodi as well as the people from the forum who are testing the new builds.
