Build Highlights:
  1. New firmware
  2. Updated deinterlace commits in newclock5 - please report regressions:
    popcornmix Wrote:Today's update has a fairly big change to where deinterlacing is handled.

    There may be regressions, so update with caution.

    Previously we deinterlaced inside the hardware decoder. This has a few downsides:
    • It doesn't work with software decoded video (e.g. MPEG-2 without a codec licence)
    • The deinterlacer stops aspect ratio changes from being reported by decoder meaning they are missed when they occur mid-stream
    • Enabling/disabling deinterlace adjusts the framerate Kodi's rendererer sees, and it takes a number of seconds to lock back on. This can cause issues with dropping/stuttering.
    • Interlaced content drives Kodi's GUI loop at a higher rate which increases CPU.
    So the new scheme handles deinterlace in the mmal renderer, meaning kodi is unaware of the change in framerate. This also allows the higher quality gpu deinterlace to work with software decode.

    Note: currently the codec info overlay won't report deinterlace state or the increased deinterlace framerate (this will come).
  3. Updated database migration message to avoid crashing during Addons*.db migration
