Stutters, drop-outs and delays when playing some videos.
Many other videos work flawlessly.
Most of the time they are downloaded from youtube, using youtube-dl.
Formats are .webm, .flv, .mkv.
The distortions apply to image and sound.
Image becomes low-res (quadratic blocks) or even completely dark.
Sound interrupts and comes back after some seconds.
What I was doing:
The video is stored on the SD-Card in ~osmc/Movies.
I play the video using either my mobile (KORE) or a USB keyboard plugged into the RPi.
How to replicate: (video picked as an example)
Use youtube-dl to download https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aF5FMXHGsjA
Copy the file to the RPi.
Play it on the TV screen.
Regarding a visit to St.Petersburg contact me
My device is a RaspberryPi (RPi) 3B+.
Attached to it are a (dumb) TV by HDMI cable.
I am using the original RaspberryPi power supply.
Sometimes - especially for searching - I attach a USB keyboard as mentioned above.
I am not aware that this issue is related to a new version of OSMC.
I cannot recall a time where this problem was not present.
Google did not yield a lot of hits on my problem.
Try to play the same video on the RPi using the Kodi Youtube-Addon.
The differences should be obvious: There the problem does not exist.
My videos are stored together with OSMC on a 200GB SanDisk, which shows class “C10” as well as “U1”.
I have tried (without any special parameters) to recode the file as a .mkv and as a .mp4
This did not change anything in the display, only the files were considerably smaller.
