Frame skips in "Avatar"

#1

Watching Avatar in HDR, I’m getting frame skips. They coincide with the places where someone says something in the Na’vi language; I’d guess it’s something to do with the subtitles, as Na’vi is subtitled in a different font from English dialogue (and subtitles of people speaking English works fine).

EDIT: I could probably create a short sample video that reproduces the problem, if you like; if that would be useful, let me know where to upload it.

Is the CPU use high during this?

#3

Not that I noticed.

#4

Just checked again and no, CPU usage is within comfortable limits, and no higher when it’s skipping frames than when it isn’t.

I’m 95% sure it has something to do with the subtitles for Na’vi. It happens very reliably, and skips one or two frames each time.

Its this problem isnt it?

#6

Ah! Sounds like it, yes.

No solution available to that issue, @sam_nazarko…?

#8

Is it possible to produce a small sample that causes the problem? If so – I can take a closer look

#9

I’ll do that tomorrow. Can you suggest somewhere to upload it to?

#10

You can upload up to 500MB (I think), here: https://collab.osmc.tv/s/4qjJK3tXwQoQ4oM

Okay, @sam_nazarko - I uploaded a sample. (It’s about 30 seconds, ~330MB size).

Thanks, I’ll see what can be done to improve things here.
