Re: Raspbian 2018-11-13 - Video Playback Broken

You should learn to inform yourself instead of complaining like a whining child. 1) Regarding Youtube: check if h264fy is enabled. The effect you describe is typical when it is disabled. 2) The reason for the VLC probem has been explained: The standard Debian (Raspbian) version now overrides the sp...

Re: Raspbian 2018-11-13 - Video Playback Broken

VLC Player's OSD now works since the latest update, but sadly video playback is now completely broken (it lags and stutters at "Automatic" Output, and runs at half its frame-rate at "X11 video output". Who updates software without testing, if it's working properly? Is this some sort of a joke? Also,...

Re: Raspbian 2018-11-13 - Video Playback Broken

Is there any possible fix?

I'd only need to know what has been changed since the last version to revert all changes made since then, so it can work properly.

Thanks in advance.

Raspbian 2018-11-13 - Video Playback Broken

Hello, video playback in Chromium is broken in the newest Raspbian version. - Watching YouTube in "Auto" mode causes videos to flicker. - Watching YouTube in 144p or 240p causes videos in 16:9 format to shrink to a 4:3 format (the video player's size doesn't change, but the video itself starts shrin...

Re: Newest Kernel and / or Chromium broken

I may also thank you for your replies. It's good to know, that developers are working on it. I've just done some further testing with my Pi 3B, installed all of the recent updates, and it now works for some odd reason. There is still some noticable slowdown, but it's not as heavy as it was before. B...

Re: Newest Kernel and / or Chromium broken

If you know the RPi can't do it, then why are you trying to stream it? What does this "I have been running this at 30fps by disabling 60fps via the h264ify extension." tell you? BTW, my version resorts to 480p to stream it. My Tinker Board resorts to 720p/60fps to stream it. Maybe you need more but...

The video is 1080p/60fps, and yes, it stutters at the beginning (first few seconds). Once it gets rolling, it appears to do ok all the way to the end. It's impossible to run videos in [email protected] at a desktop resolution of 1080p on a Pi. I have been running this at 30fps by disabling 60fps via the ...

That is the same kernel version I am running. 4.14.70-v7+. ??

Well, then let this video run in fullscreen in 720p (with a desktop resolution set to 1080p): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZBJ9sdp45M

It won't play fine. Not at all. It stutters, lags and hangs.

I'm running the same v65, and I can run 720p videos on YouTube fine. Well, I just noticed, that it's the same version that comes with Raspbian 2018-06-27.

AFAIK, the newest Chromium browser is broken for armhf. That is v69.

I tried using Chromium v67, but it runs like a slideshow. My v65 runs ok.
Yes, it definitely is. I'm running 65.0.3325.181 right now, and it's absolutely broken.
