Android Windows Media Video 9 Screen / Playback Issues

Depending on the severity, the video is choppy, looks slow, alternates between too slow and too fast, etc. Also there are audio sync issues where the sound is off for a few seconds and sometimes catches up but still isn't quite uniform in terms of delay.

Kodi 18.4 GIT:20190831
Shield SW Version 8.00 (
