Does this only affect omxplayer or MMAL too?
Really unless you are on Pi0/Pi1 you shouldn't be using omxplayer.
(feel free to report issues - I'll fix what I can but MMAL is the way forward on raspberry pi).

It is only with OMX, MMAL switching seems fine.

Im using a RPi3 but still find MMAL keeps pausing the video im playing whenever I moved around the menus.
I have a big movies database, and if I enter it while using MMAL the video im watching can pause for up to 5 secs while kodi enters the movie library, this doesnt happen with OMX, thats the only reason i go with OMX..
I'd prefer to use MMAL as it seems better quality, but the pause bugs me to much... Big Grin

Best Regards


I have just the same problem he describes. Video won't play for some seconds when switching from fullscreen video to any menu while audio still plays. With OMX it's not pausing at all, only MMAL. Using RPi3.

@popcornmix: Is there any way to fix that?
