I’ve had this problem since at least January, maybe since I have the Vero 4K+ (I bought it a year ago). The problem was the same before the March update and is still present with the last update (this October).
On some media (mainly non-fiction shows, like 90 % of the time), at some point during playback, the image slow down or freeze, while the audio is still OK, then, after a few seconds (10 seconds to one minute maybe), the media jump a bit forward and image/sound are synchronised, then it does the same things a few minutes later.
Sometimes it is once or twice during an episode, sometimes it’s almost continuous.
I’ve enabled debug logging and played a file this morning. The slow down/jump appeared at least 4 or 5 times. Here is the log: https://paste.osmc.tv/olefuwixow (I think it happened the first time at 2020-10-27 10:47:25.289). [Edit: new log without upnext addon spam: https://paste.osmc.tv/wayozodube.]
- I’ve all my media on the same hard drive (some with this bug, most play fine).
- With hardware acceleration - amcodec deactivated, I haven’t this bug, but the image is not “fluid” (looks like there are tiny freezes).
- I’ve tried changing several options, but I didn’t see any change (I haven’t kept track of those tests as I don’t understand all the settings, but I can try again some if needed).
- If I show player debug information during playback, I see that during the slow down “aq” drops from 99 to 0 while “a/v” rise, then the jump happens (don’t know if it helps).
I don’t know if I just missed a simple option or misconfigured something or if it’s something else…
