The Live streaming from ESPN3 add-on keeps locking up video playback during the switching from the Live stream to the commercial stream or from the commercial stream to Live stream. While this is a bug in ESPN3 add-on, the workaround is to disable “Allow hardware acceleration - Crystal HD” option as the software should be able to playback 720p stream smoothly. Is it possible to enable the option that can disable “Allow hardware acceleration - Crystal HD” in the Video/Acceleration setting?
I will see what can be done for Jarvis
To clarify what Sam said…
The Crystal HD can’t be disabled in the current version, but he’ll look into that for the next major Kodi version on OSMC.
