Jerky video only with Vero2...!


since a lot of time, all video are jerky with Vero 2.
So I try a new installation from scratch with last version (september 2016 - 2016.09-1), same problem.

So I also have a raspberry 3, and made a instlalation from scratch (version 2016.09-1). And no problem, all video are fluid…

If I play the same video directly on the tv, video are fluid too.

If someone have a idea to fix this big problem with Vero2… I really don’t understand what it is happening !

Thank you.


It would be good if we could find out more about the file you are having issues playing. Please see the mediainfo section in How to submit a useful support request - General - OSMC

To get a better understanding of the problem you are experiencing we need more information, including logs from you. Our wiki contains detailed steps for providing the relevant info we need to help you.

Ok, thank you very much for your answer.

Here is the link with the "test"movie (Deux jours, une nuit.mkv), but apparently the problem are for all videos.

And here is the log file when I played this file (Deux jours, une nuit.mkv)…

I also tested with KODI or OSMC interface, but the problem is still there.

Hope that help. It is very strange, and very annoying.

Your post seems to suggest this file played before?

Do you remember when the video last played successfully?

A full set of logs would be better. Also need to clarify ‘jerky’. Is it periodic, or throughout? Are you on the latest update?


Hello, thank for your answer.

// I don’t remember when the first time all video were “jerky”… maybe when I use this new TV : PANASONIC TX-40DX600E

// I also have the last version (install from scratch). It is not periodic but all the time.

// I think it was ok with the osmc with kodi 17 beta. But I’ll test it again.

// No problem with osmc last version in a rapsberry pi 3.


The first Kodi Beta did not have hardware acceleration working properly on the Vero 2. You can either update to the latest beta which does, or use the stable version.

It’s probably not a good idea to compare a Krypton beta to Jarvis on other devices. If you want stable playback, I’d advise staying with the stable version of OSMC for now.

Ok I’ll stay with the lastest stable version like now.

But what can I do to fix this ? I really don’t have any idea right now.

Thank you.


You can get the latest stable version from That’s the easiest way to downgrade if you are not too acquainted with the command line.

If this continues to be problematic please provide MediaInfo and a full sample and I can look in to this further.


but now I’m already with the last stable version (2016.10-2 for Vero2)

I said that I made a lot of tests before with beta build with krypton, and with rapsberry pi 3.

For info, I have no problem with command line.

I have 2 videos for testing.
1// little freeze (milli second) every 1 or 2 second:

2// no problem with this video:

If you have a idea to fix this.
It’ll be great !



  1. and 2) seem to both be the same video named train-view-halmstad-goteborg-xvid.avi?

Can you clarify?


the first is train-view-halmstad-goteborg.mp4, a .mp4 with x264 codec.

and the second is train-view-halmstad-goteborg-xvid.avi, a .avi with xvid codec.

Take a look at the two file from


Ah, thanks for clarifying. I only looked at the filenames and missed the extensions.

I’ll have a look at this tomorrow.

Thank you.

I hope you’ll find something.


Hello, did you find something ?



I couldn’t replicate the issue locally here, but do acknowledge that there are some problematic clips with Jarvis.

The good news is that Krypton which features VideoPlayer should land soon. This should improve things a lot.

If this is new behaviour, consider a reinstall (or removing ~/.kodi temporarily).



OK thank, and to install krypton, is it like a rasperry3 ?
It is for the commands :

sudo apt-get install rbp2-mediacenter-osmc


A bit different, see

Not all of those improvements are merged yet however.


Yes that’s it!
Thank you very much.

sudo -s
echo "deb krypton main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
apt-get update
apt-get -y dist-upgrade && reboot
