1080p Software Decoding
#1
Hi All,

      I recently switched away from an aging Roku 2XD I've been using for many years to stream media to my TV, dropped CoreELEC on some random Android TV box I picked up somewhere along the line.

The box is an S905X based unit from some random Chinese manufacturer (model was T95m I think), works 100% fine for all my media off Emby but we have issues with 1080p Netflix content, video is a bit stuttery and audio gets out of sync in a hurry, which I gather is down to it being software decoded and the S905X not having enough grunt to handle it. Limiting the InputStream plugin to 720p resolves the issues, but obviously I'd prefer to get my video in 1080p Wink

Looking for something similar which can keep up with 1080p content from Netflix, wondering if anybody can make any recommendations for a suitable replacement?

Thinking about maybe the ODROID-N2 or some other S922* based device, but I haven't been able to find any info to confirm whether or not they are sufficiently beefy to handle 1080p software decoding.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,

-J

The S922X and A311D (VIM3), AMLogic chipsets have the CPU ponies to SW decode everything except 4K video content.

So no problems with 1080p material from Netflix. Smile
