I know playback speed is an issue on the Vero 4K, so I’m really hoping it will be more straightforward on the V since it’s the one ‘killer’ feature I could use.
To that end, I have a few questions:
- Is the AMLogic S905X4-OSMC different from a generic AMLogic S905X4?
- Does the AMLogic S905X4/AMLogic S905X4-OSMC hardware support the features required to implement adjusting playback speed in a straight-forward manner?
- Are there plans to support adjusting playback speed for the Vero V?
- Not at this time.
- We could adjust playback speed now fairly trivially with software decoding.
What type of content do you plan to play?
For faster playback my primary source would be (edutainment-type) videos downloaded from Youtube or other similar platforms. Having subtitles in sync would also be important.
Secondary sources would be x264/x265 in MP4 or MKV containers.
If disabling hardware acceleration still allows these files to be played back without issue, then I think we can get it to work trivially.
If you need hardware acceleration, it would be harder to achieve.
Great. Looking forward to trying it out when I get my V.
