Yep. I'm aware of this one. I've been working on it but don't have a good fix yet.

After testing different build releases I can tell the short freeze problem started with LE8 #412. In LE8 #411 and down to #403 it works well.

How well it works with these Krypton builds I don't know.

@DarrenHill. Thanks for pointing this out. As soon as I installed the repository, my version of the YouTube add-on was updated and everything is working now.

Next question, what add-on is best used to support Amazon Prime Videos on LibreELEC?

Read note #6 in the first post. I'm happy with the first add-on listed, plugin.video.prime_instant.

Ah yes that's the inputstream bug. If you temporarily disable resolving of the openelec.tv domain with:
Code:
echo "127.0.0.1 openelec.tv" >> /storage/.config/hosts.conf
and reboot, I think you might be able to boot those older OE builds without Kodi crashing on startup.

Has something happened to libreelec recently? Moving from 0511 to the latest nightly and the user interface seems to have slowed to an absolute crawl. videos still play fine but the UI is now very laggy.

Even this is not even close an RPi question Wink

The problem is that Digital Devices didn't provide kernel patches or in kernel drivers for Linux. They provide drivers of course but these kind of drivers delegates DDs work to the distribution providers to include them. So for LibreELEC/OpenELEC you have to create an patch against the kernel source code to get them supported (for each kernel version you have do this again). Don't get me wrong, this is possible but nobody wants to do Digital Devices work (this is no 2min task). Even DVBSky (a cheap china retailer) was able to get their dvb drivers in the kernel -> proper support. If budget manufacturers are able to provide proper drivers you can ask yourself why there isn't any support from DDs side.

There are LibreELEC images with additional dvb drivers (see my sig) but currently only for 7.0 (till there is some official 8.0 alpha/beta) - but even there the dddvb drivers are work in progress because they won't work probably (I have no hw - so I have to wait till someone test the builds).

Not a crawl for me, but noticeably slower using the estuary mod. When going from TV to Movies, there is a 3 second circle spin while it loads the widgets.

There are still one or two "busy dialog" issues after PR9778 mainly affecting third-party skins and widgets (see comments on github). I'm not seeing any issues with stock Estuary and the limited number of add-ons I have installed (YouTube, Amazon Prime Instant).

it did the trick!

After spending several hours updating and testing I discovered that the last working version for Advanced Launcher is....
OpenELEC #1219, 19-Dec-2015 from this thread: 2191234 (post)

In the next one it fails like in all version till latest, so the issue must be related with something in here:
2192054 (post)

If you can figure out what can be I can try to edit the addon...

thanks!

Interesting that might explain the noticeable lag, but small, I have noticed when using the Estuary Mod skin. Even with the overclock of the Pi3 it is still there.
The best thing that I have done for my Pi is to add a small cooling fan, it has dropped the reported temp by around 20c, I no longer get the warning square popping up as it did on occasion before indicating high temps.

Do you get the lags with stock Estuary?

(2016-05-15, 21:03)drdwridav Wrote: First up big thanks to Milhouse for these builds. Can finally play all my 3D isos and works really well.
Only thing I've noticed is that the invert L/R image in video menu doesn't seem to do anything on ISOs and I have to manually switch to right eye first on the TV directly for right eye first movies.
On mkv movies the invert L/R works fine...
I'm on the latest test build and pretty new to this so can't tell if the invert command worked on earlier versions for isos?

Tried rolling back to the first libreelec build and the l/r switch for ISOs doesn't appear to work. Again works fine for mkvs. Does anyone know if this has worked in the past? Not a big issue as it can be changed on the TV...

I realised that I had enabled animated posters in the modified Estuary Skin and after turning that feature off it has greatly improved when navigating.
Also turning off the Next Up (didn't want) and Artwork Downloader (increase CPU load when running and not needed by me) addons might have made a difference..?

As noted the differences for me is small but I do not get any lag at all with the default Estuary skin.

Certainly used to work in the past. Let me have a look.....
Okay I've found something. Please try again with tonight's build.
