I am in need of a 4k with HDR box. Nothing special until here.
I have a Hue lighstrip that I want to control with kodi add-on.
Here is the issue.
On my current setup (wetek core), in order to Hue to work I need to disable amc and surface acceleration. So I am left with only the normal mediacodec one. It is working, but will see stutters at times. Especially in movies.
Also tested with libreelec/openelec. There I have only amcodec.
Will it work with Vero 4k? What acceleration does it use? Do you use it in conjunction with Hue?
On my laptop it works fine, but there I have another kind of acceleration. I know what Mediacodec is just an android API.
I would assume it works. I know I tried once but couldn’t manage to get it working. But it is rather my lack of knowledge than it not being compatible. The HUE lightstrip does only one color at a time.
So then it uses the same hardware acceleration as libreelec/openelec?
Issue is that with amcodec and surface acceleration Hue does not work (hue Kodi add-on, not hyperion). It does not change the colors, if I disable the two it works (but with some degree of stutters).
In libreelec/openelec where I only have amcodec, if I disable it it stutters really bad so I cannot use it. That is the reason why I ask.
Problem with hyperion is that I am a total noob and can’t get it to work. Tried already 3 months ago, also posted in their forum and got no reply at all.
What I am doing is set the Hue IP; username I got from the developer page. I do not get where I can set the number of leds (1 as the strip does just one color at a time) so I just edit the json manually and add the code after the “RGB” part. 3 months ago I received some errors, no I cannot even connect to test it. Connecting to libreleec works fine, installing hyperion as well, uploading the configuration also. It fails at testing the color change, error would be could not connect. (I don’t know why because it is clearly connected)…
There’s been success getting Hyperion to run on Vero 4K, and I believe it will work for your Hue device. It might be worth asking in that thread as it will get some of the Hyperion developers attention.
