Problems with VLC/H.265 fullscreen playback on Pi4?

Thu Aug 22, 2019 8:38 pm

Have you guys experienced problems playing back 1080p or 4K video fullscreen on the Pi4 that's encoded in H.265? You either see black screen or scrambled picture till you make the window smaller?

H265 HW decoding is not supported on Raspbian, yet. The only distribution that can use it is LibreElec.
Minimal Kiosk Browser (kweb)
Slim, fast webkit browser with support for audio+video+playlists+youtube+pdf+download
Optional fullscreen kiosk mode and command interface for embedded applications
Includes omxplayerGUI, an X front end for omxplayer

How about H.264 at the same resolutions?

There were a whole bunch of VLC updates today.

Code: Select all

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated Raspbian Buster w/ Desktop OS.
