Hello everyone! My first post on here
I've been playing with a side project on and off and I've been struggeling to get my RPi to play 1080p videos, or rather - to minimize latency between swapping videos.
The end goal is to be able to play videos in sync with music through DMX (I will open source both the hat I made and the C++ program).
I have tried every combination I can think of between various codecs and H.264 settings - opencv - openmax - ffmpeg - QT - OpenFrameworks... The list is long.
I have ordered a couple of RPi 4 to see if they might help me, but my question still stands.
What do you recommend as the best framework for getting video loads fast and a stable 30fps 1080 video stream?
I would prefer to have a documented API at the lowest possible level (many of the frameworks I tried does not allow me to f.ex do double buffering (both in the next-frame-to-render sense, and in the load-next-movie-as-the-other-is-playing sense).
Thank you so much for any and all answers! Best regards,
