Raspbian Jessie + Kodi +1080 videos

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.

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.

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.

That did the trick. Thank you, mate.
