Raspbian Jessie + Kodi +1080 videos

Fri Dec 18, 2015 6:00 pm

Hi all.

I am unable to play 1080 resolution videos on my raspberry pi, on Kodi installed on a vanilla raspbian. I've purchased the codecs thinking that was the problem but once "installed" issue remains.

What I'm doing wrong??

Thanks in advance.

Regards.
GOD BLESS THE BLUES!!

1) Set GPU memory to at least 160 MB.
2) Enable omxplayer in kodi (and for me disabling MMAL gives better results)
3) Some files/streams (TS TV HD) don't play well: use my latest 15.2 release based on popcornmix isenguard backports which fix these issues.
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

Put this in your config file

Code: Select all

gpu_freq=500
This will overclock the gpu and will let you play any 1080p file.

By thinking like an engineer you can create a raspberry pi.
Michael Jackson enthusiast.
I got the PI model B, B+ and PI 2 model B.
When will I get the A? I don't know.
