Can someone tell me how to enable the samba server by default in the latest builds? For some reason it is not on, and I have to ssh into LE to start smbd/nmbd before I can upload a new build?

Thanks

It is clearly still deinterlacing at double rate, just looks like it's not updating the display at a constant rate and missing frames repeatedly every second. I can provide a sample if useful?

Yes, provide a sample please.

Popcornmix - samples below - the ticker demonstrates the issue for me most obviously with HD. With SD it looks I cant see any difference between MMAL Advanced and Half - it looks like half for both - its always been that way from memory though so not related to this recent change in behaviour. If you bring the OSD up (or turn on subtitles) with the HD stream, it should become smooth again. SD shows no difference either way.

Go to Settings > LibreELEC > Services > Samba (or something like that, typing this from memory).

Can you confirm the exact behaviour I should look for on the HD/BBC sample?
I was expecting dropped frames/stutters in ticker every second, but it appears smooth to me.

Anyone else having this problem?

Can you confirm your settings:
Video acceleration: omxplayer? mmal?
Adjust display refresh rate?
Sync playback to display?
Deinterlace method?
Subtitles enabled?

Here is the playlist:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes" ?>
<smartplaylist type="songs">
<name>Classical</name>
<match>all</match>
<rule field="genre" operator="is">
<value>Classical</value>
</rule>
<limit>100</limit>
</smartplaylist>


This result form the Kodi logfile is this:

16:13:25.446 T:1943417488 NOTICE: VideoPlayer: finished waiting

The playlist works fine run manually.

The developer of the Kodi skill suggests that a parameter in the playlist function call used in his skill may have been depreciated between Kodi 17 and 18. He uses call Player.Open with the "file" parameter set to the playlist file. Is that possible?


Looks like this bug is affecting third party apps other than the Amazon Echo skill.

Good question - checked and its sync playback to display - disable and everything works well in sd and hd using mmal, advanced deinterlace, adjust display refresh rate on. So that would indicate sync playback to display doesn't work properly with deinterlace?

You'll need a very basic h264 video player - I currently use the "hello_video.bin" player from the RPi firmware repo which has been compiled on Raspbian: https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware/...ello_video

The LE patch to play the video at startup is here: http://nmacleod.com/public/oebuild/patch...ash_le.txt - the first time you boot it will download the video, so that when you boot the second and subsequent times it should have the video available to play.
