RK3188 Video Issues?

I installed Xbmc, and played 720p h.264 encoded video, encoded roughly at 1.5GB per hour (sorry not sure the bit rate) over. SAMBA/CIFS share without any trouble?

Good to hear :) Would be interesting to hear how it copes with 1080 (that said, I'll have mine tomorrow, so I'll give it a bash)

 

a lot of dropped frames on 1080p unfortunately (lower bitrate than my 720p file however, so i know its not a wifi bandwidth issue) im assuming the downscaling is GPU intensive? Watchable but only just

I assume you're using the XBMC nightlies? The stable version won't have hardware acceleration. When I played the 720p with the debug log on, the CPU cores were doing pretty much nothing.. Which is nice :-)

Yeah, the current stable won't be using hardware acceleration, just software decoding - grab the latest nightly and throw that on. Mine went from virtually maxing out the CPU cores to the CPU doing next to nothing :)

Rooted mine and installed a fullscreen app - this is mine playing a 720p h264 DTS video over wifi .. ignore the exit box, couldn't get it to take a screenshot without XBMC thinking I wanted to quit :)

I can't get it to play 1080p either in XBMC, although the CPUs are still sat at 0% and the GPU isn't *that* bad .. might be a memory bandwidth issue, or something that can be fixed with some optimisation.

 

My iPad mini plays the 1080p birds stress test in xbmc without missing a beat, and that's pretty naff spec wise.
