Is this with Pi 2? I think 720p is too much. Try reducing resolution in inputstream.adaptive settings.

Is this new in #0715? i.e. does reverting to #0714 avoid the issue?

Yes it's with Pi 2.
Reducing secure Resolution to 480p worked. But why is Amazon VOD running on 1080p without problems and Netflix just runs on 480p?

I found this interesting too. When I was testing an earlier version on my RPi2 it stuttered heavily on Netflix; overclocking it to 1GHz significantly reduced the stuttering, but it wasn't smooth and audio was out of sync.

Yesterday, I installed #0708 on my RPi3 and Netflix seems to work flawlessly (Actually, I think I noticed some stuttering, but I'm not sure since I don't regard 25fps as smooth in the first place xD).

I have not tested it at # 0714, with Kodi 17.3 was the TV stream ok.

What does the codec info overlay show for each stream?
If the server will supply an unencrypted stream then you get hardware decode (mmal) and 1080p is fine.
But I believe that is only possible with some older content on Amazon.

If it is encrypted we have to use the widevine software decoder. Pi3 can handle this at 720p.
Pi2 has lower performance.

Is there any chance that a RPi running LibreELEC will be able to use a hardware decoder (like mmal for instance) for Netflix? (Sadly, I think I know the answer).

Anyway, thanks for making it possible to watch Netflix properly on a RPi3.

yes.

Thanks Milhouse, I changed dtoverlay = lirc-rpi to
dtoverlay = gpio-ir.

Now the build #0714 and #0715 is working.

Greetings Cosmicbase

Just for information:

The described Live TV issue also exists with x86 version. Don‘t know since which build it exists. I believe sine july builds.

Useful to know. Finding the exact build that stopped working would be useful.
e.g. try 1st June and 1st July build. If first works and second doesn't then try 15th June build.
Shouldn't take long to narrow it down (5 tests should be enough to get from a month to a single nightly build).

Otherwise create a trac ticket where the video player dev can offer advice.

No. The he widevine DRM is designed to stop the unencrypted bitstream from being extracted.
You need to use the widevine dll to decrypt and decode the video, so software decode only.
