So I got two problems, one is covered here: Playback Video - sound stuttering after March 5th Update and appears this is unresolved as yet. No worries, happy to wait on that to get fixed. (in fact problem seems mitigated by utilizing OMX rather that MMAL)
More annoying than this problem however is my sound randomly setting itself to -30dB mid playback. so I all of a sudden lose sound while watching a video and have to open up the settings and slowly increase it back to 0 to get sound back, kinda breaks the flow of what I’m watching. I will post logs when I get them.
Has any one else experienced anything like this?
