Vero V playback speed

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:

  1. Is the AMLogic S905X4-OSMC different from a generic AMLogic S905X4?
  2. Does the AMLogic S905X4/AMLogic S905X4-OSMC hardware support the features required to implement adjusting playback speed in a straight-forward manner?
  3. Are there plans to support adjusting playback speed for the Vero V?

  1. Yes.
  2. Not at this time.
  3. 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.
