how to display video resolution in kodi

How do you display the video resolution/quality in kodi. What I mean is the listing at the bottom of the screen for the first number of seconds ,showing 720 or 1080p or whatever the quality for the particular stream being viewed.

Depends on what you are using to control KODI. With keyboard it should be either I or M. I use the Kore app as my remote.

Thank you both for your replies ,but what I have is an android tv box with its own remote. What I was looking for was that each time a stream or movie came on the quality 720 or 1080 or whatever would display at the bottom of the screen for a while. I actually had that facility on a build that I once used ,but do not have it on my present build ,so I wondered would I be able to activate that through settings.

Skin features compatibility list (wiki)

Some skins will give you this inside the player, others will have this as a hackable addition (look to the author of the skin).

As of the most recent betas, the "o" for "onscreen display" no longer shows most of the information it used to. Is this intentional or a regression of some kind? It used to be a very useful tool for debugging whether for example video acceleration was being used, if frames were being skipped, etc..

I've just made my first real entry to the Kodi v17 FAQ ;)

Intentional.

Long story short: Someone thought that data/window was wrong (and/or pointless for users), so they removed the old codec info window (technically it's an "overlay"). That is, they felt the code was wrong, and where the information displayed was wrong. This upset a bunch of people, so now things are slowly going back in. Very very slowly, with lots of arguments along the way.

Imagine a bunch of engineers arguing over a light switch, and someone just rips it out because it should be done better. Now no one can turn on the lights. They argue some more, and now a complicated light switch is being developed to replace the old one. This new light switch is, in fact, better. However, some people don't understand why so much time had to be spent on something that really wasn't broken in the first place.

For the end users there will simply be a new place to get this data. It should be just as easy to get to, if not easier, so no need to worry.

Very poor and wrong explanation of this story. Nevertheless, that last sentence is true.

I was searching for how to show the video infromation (codecs and resolution) of a video during playback and found this this thread.

'Letter O' works for me. I'm using Kodi Krypton v17.6 on Android TV.

Thank you @darwin for mentioning it. It shows as much info as I need anyway. Smile
