On the pre 15.0 version, I had to go into the settings and force the youtube plugin to use 480p to make the playback run well... Maybe the new version is actually checking the resolution of the screen instead of trying some higher resolution that doesn't work well with the Pandora. Just a guess.(since 15.0, I found the youtube plugin is working quite well, but not sure if it's a placebo effect).
Yeah it's probably still the case, as Kodi stream using a GLES2 texture (with a shader to do the YUV->RGB conversion), and without Texture streaming (not implemented yet), large texture can take time to upload, where smplayer2 use YUV Surface of the omapdss IIRC, and that must be faster on large surface (it wont be noticeable on small / normal ones on the fps of a video).Hey Ptitseb, any difference in performance in the newer versions ? In the past 14.x versions, most slightly higher resolution videos were playing worse (frameskipping) than in smplayer2 - is it still the case?
I tried to mount an NFS share in Kodi, but no luck.kodi.log tells meneither nfs nor samba work for me. samba used to work, but since I upgraded my NAS, kodi cannot find the share anymore and I was using samba exclusively for xbmc on pandora.
NFS works now, thank you!
Thanks for testing, I'll upload to the repo soon.NFS works now, thank you!
sshfs does not. Adding an ssh/sftp source crashes Kodi, with no meaningful log entry. I also tried to add the ssh entry directly to sources.xml, but same result: When selecting the source Kodi crashes.
