4k UHD channel freezing

Added by Marcin N 4 months ago

Hi,

i want to play 4k content, and today tested Fashion 4k FTA channel from Hotbird 13E.
i can play it, but it freezing, sound is almost good, cpu is on 100% (all 4 cores), is it problem hardware or i should set some options or 4k ?
HD channels uses 5-10% CPU.

my pc
CPU i3-4130 3,4Ghz
RAM 4GB

Use hardware acceleration on GPU (Intel® HD Graphics 4400)
There is no connection with TVHin this case.
You can record and play with same result.

hmm, i'm using only kodi to watch live tv and movies
i think my CPU is too old to play hevc, now checked again and to play fashion 4k it uses ff-hevc (SW) not ff-h264-vaapi (HW) as in HD and i think this is the problem of 100% usage. software decoding :(
