You might just want to link to the main landing page for video topics, video library (wiki).

That page also automatically lists all how-to wiki pages that are also categorized as being video related.

I just noticed something when viewing live streams, i run normal viewing in 1920x1080
but as soon as i start a live stream it goes to 1280x720 had not noticed that before

Could that affect video playback or audio playback in a bad way

The 1280x720 is what the log tells me
I have my PC connected to my 40 inch LCD and it just up scales it to 1080p

So i see no differences
Well looks like i could be on to something
this is what my log says
WARNING: CWinRenderer::UpdateVideoFilter - chosen scaling method 1 is not supported by renderer
NOTICE: CDVDPlayerAudio::OutputPacket skipping a packets of duration 23

And it goes on saying that.
Audio always drops after the Scaling Warning

Hello, sorry if I'm posting in the wrong thread, I'm a newbie. I'm having a similar issue. I recently upgraded from Kodi 17.6 to 18.5. I only use it for watching movies, tv shows. Before the upgrade it played beautifully. But now, regardless what I do, I get sound but no video, just a blank screen that flashes different colors. I have tried going into settings and changing the video rendering to software as suggested in other threads, no luck. I have tried every setting in the rendering options to see if that might work, still no luck. Any suggestions on what else I can try?

@vernonmom54 Apologies, I only just noticed that you'd quoted me and resurrected a thread. It's difficult to say what the problem might be - graphics drivers? Unsupported card? Wrong encoding for your CPU/GPU combination? - without knowing more.

I'd suggest a new post in the appropriate platform sub-forum, along with a debug log (wiki). We need to know what hardware/software combination you're running, and what errors, if any, are being produced during playback.
