Have a RPi3 that I use as a media player. Been using LibreELEC on it and I had it configured with refresh rate switching and with hardware acceleration disabled on omxplayer. With refresh rate switching, I have some 200ms audio delay issues that I can fix using some offset on advancedsettings.xml. This offset doesn’t work if hardware accelaration is enabled.
I’m switching to OMSC due to the underlying OS (want to install some other things without having to use Docker), but I’m facing a couple of issues:
- UI feel is overall slower and choppier. Thinking on downscaling to 720p
- To be able to downscale and still having videos at higher res, I need to enable refresh rate switching, and now I would be faced with the audio delayed issue. It seems OSMC doesn’t use omxplayer, and disabling hardware acceleration (don’t know if it’s the correct settings, I disabled 'use hardware acceleration on PRIME video, or something like that, under settings > Player). If I disable this, video is really choppy (makes sense though, not clear why it worked smoothly on LibreELEC after disabling hardware acc, but it worked).
Any insight? Any way to switch to omxplayer or fix this audio delay (only happens on 23.976 content)? Any real way to speed up the UI so I would not have to switch the resolution?
