Kodi from Debian - Support Thread
@mirtouf Can you try running this test for me?


ffplay -codec:v av1 -i Sparks-5994fps-AV1-10bit-1920x1080-2194kbps.mp4

By default ffplay picks libdav1d for software decoding but Kodi pucks av1 for HW one. My device does not support HW AV1 decoding so I must rely on you.

Hi Basil,

I do not understand the message when launching ffplay (repeated ad lib):
[av1 @ 0x7f2dd8008100] Your platform doesn't suppport hardware accelerated AV1 decoding.
[av1 @ 0x7f2dd8008100] Failed to get pixel format.
[av1 @ 0x7f2dd8008100] Missing Sequence Header.

because I have an entry for AV1 decoding:
error: XDG_RUNTIME_DIR is invalid or not set in the environment.
error: can't connect to X server!

Is it a detection issue?
Sorry for delay @mirtouf but it looks we'll need a live debugging session on your PC to check the issue. I can also build 21 Alpha 2 against ffmpeg 6 and let  you test it but this will require picking experimental builds (and I am not sure it fixes the issue).

You can PM me the dates and times that will suit you and the softwares you would like to use.
Kodi 20 as supplied with Debian 12 (bookworm) is giving me some trouble - the Esc key is not doing anything. It could annoy on Kodi 19.1 on bullseye, jumping 8fairly randomly to the top or going up one level, but now it does nothing. Why would that be? I can find no other easy way without using Kore on my phone.
Just checked on 20.2 with X11 (full-screen): Esc key properly goes backward, similar to <-- (arrow back) key in Kore. Do you use Wayland or X11?

I am running "Kodi from Debian" using Debian 12 (Bookworm) on an Intel Processor N100 (Alder Lake-N). The only "non-standard" thing about my installation is that I'm running kernel 6.4.0-0.deb12.2-amd64 installed from the bookworm-backports repository. The problem I have is that though H264 video plays perfectly, H265 video is jerky. I realise that Bookworm is using an older (20.1) release of Kodi, and therefore my problem may have already been fixed in Kodi 20.2. Therefore, before I embark on troubleshooting the issue, I think it makes sense to be using the latest release of Kodi. With this in mind, I thought of upgrading to Debian Testing (Trixie). Unfortunately, Trixie does not have the kodi-inputstream-adaptive package, which is essential for the Youtube plugin to work. Interestingly, that package is available again in Debian Unstable (Sid), but I'm reluctant to upgrade to Sid because I don't want to deal with potential breakage.

So, my question to you guys is whether I can go along and upgrade to Trixie and be confident that I can then install Sid's kodi-inputstream-adaptive on Trixie. Or would it not work?
To answer my own question, I did upgrade to Trixie. The jerky playback problem with some H265 files remained though. I was advised elsewhere to try Libreelec, since they ship a patched version of ffmpeg that fixes some problems with H265 files. I tried out a recent Libreelec nightly build and the problem did indeed go away.
