Don’t know if this might have something to do with it but there is a “new” setting under expert in Netflix add-on: “Limit videostream resolution to” set that to 720p and see if that helps, i got Killjoys last episode to play in 720p. And inputstream add-on settings settings to 720p on both resolution options.
I don’t know what the default resolution is, since it’s not shown until you set it.
This may have changed recently, but the last time I looked, the better option was to set “general decoder” to “Max” and “secure decoder” to 720p. That way you limit Netflix to 720p but allow up to 4K on YouTube.
I believe I got a degradation in resolution on my Vero4K for some Netflix content, after the previous widevine release.
Earlier I was able to stream 720p without issues, but this has taken a turn to the worse.
As of now, I can hardly stream any Netflix content in 720p, without getting just a little lag every now and then.
I have no clue, if widevine is connected to this or if it’s just coincidence.
However, Sam and team earlier stated, that Vero4K is not suitable for Netflix streaming and recommended using other devices for that.
This seems more relevant now, but I’m still hoping for Vero4k to handle this better.
@Sam, you talked about some optimizations, that might be within reach.
Any chance this will get an overhaul within a reasonable amount of time ?
I’m having similar problems with a lightbox streaming service since the update, which I had to have otherwise lightbox wasn’t working at all. Only problems with that app though, can stream fine with internet tv. Buffers every few minutes, with stream rate being around 2-8 Mb/sec, and I have a rock solid 50Mb/sec link. Very annoying.
