I went to watch Goonies today, and the movie was unwatchable due to slo-mo stuttering and all audio was totally out of alignment. I checked some other files, and had similar issues on other older films (although not all), and most new films ran fine (apart from one or two which also had the same issue).
I’m sure there’s a file setting or weird checkbox somewhere that shouldn’t be enabled - any thoughts?
If it plays fine for your laptop then it probably has something to do with the external drive and that is what I was looking to answer. The solution to this I would have to defer to someone who has more experience working with ext4 formatted drives.
To answer the question anyway you can use the file manager in Kodi’s settings menu. You would move to the right and browse to OSMC>Movies and then on the left you would browse root>media>films>(pick something) and then bring up the context menu and choose “copy”.
I was looking through your posts to see exactly how you formated that drive and i’m unclear on exactly how you performed the format. Can you please find the exact post you followed for the format commands (not the post you followed to delete the old partitions). and post a link here.
I think I read this wrong the first time around (for some reason I was reading it as you playing the file on the Vero from your laptop). The test is to play the trouble file on the vero from a different storage source to try to isolate the cause.
VC-1 was a problem on the Vero some time ago, but that’s been fixed. I’m watching a VC-1 right now with no issues. What you explain as your problem is what used to happen with VC-1.
One thing that I noticed in you log is that you have Adjust Refresh Rate set to Always. Try changing that to On Stop/start and see if that helps. If it doesn’t post a new set of logs, this time with debug enabled (the last logs you posted were not full debug logs)
