I don’t think 4k in h.264 is able to be hardware decoded. 4k in h.265 is supported for hardware decode.

#3

thank you, that is probably why.
Also in my log lines and lines of these 2 lines repeated, ad nauseam:

2019-09-09 20:06:29.756 T:3844063968 DEBUG: CAddonSettings[service.upnext]: trying to load setting definitions from old format…
2019-09-09 20:06:29.758 T:3844063968 DEBUG: CAddonSettings[service.upnext]: loading setting definitions

Judging from the filename this looks like an illegal copy.

#5

Its h264 4k you’d need to encode that with HEVC (x265 ) and than vero will play it fine

#6

Your welcome. Those two lines are not related to your issue.

Marking as solved.
