Video stuttering

    Hi,

    I'm having some problems playing video content with XBMC for Minix.
    Sometimes videos stutter while playing. Sometimes pause and start again will solve the problem. Other times nothing will help, except restarting Minix.
    The types of video that experience this problem are different. Seems to happen with both x264 and x265 videos. Also the bitrate doesn't seem to do anything with the problem.

    I have the latest firmware installed.
    Also using a wired gbit connection.

    Does anyone have an idea how to fix this?

    I found that if I disable hardware acceleration "amcodec" in XBMC the stuttering is gone.
    However; now my TV doesn't change its refresh rate to match the video. It is now "stuck" on 60hz.

    Hi,

    Use the last Minix XMBC version to correct the stuttering. It's now corrected by minix's team.
    If you disable amcodec acceleration you can't use the automatic refresh rate.
