There are some playback improvements for 4K HEVC content which should hopefully fix issues where the decoder would get stuck. An example of this is John Wick 2, where there is a very specific freeze.
The issue should now be fixed, but we need to get some testing to ensure that other HEVC content also behaves as expected.
I’d appreciate it if you could test this and provide feedback before we release this as an update to other users. To test this update:
- Login via the command line
- Edit the file
- Add the following line:
deb http://apt.osmc.tv stretch-devel main
- Run the following commands to update:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade && reboot
- Your system should have have received the update.
Please see if the issue is resolved.
I also recommend you edit
/etc/apt/sources.list again and remove the line that you added after updating. This will return you to the normal update channel.
