If i skip back within Kodi durin movie playback, kodi hangs nearly each time.
It shows "100% buffering".
If i pause and continue the movie after that, the "100% buffering" dissapears, the progress timer is continuing, but the movie is halted (still picture). I fi leave that situation for several minutes, the movie runs normaly suddenly again.
But i don't want to await that of course.
I need to stop and restart the movie to get a propper playback again.
I decreased the buffer from somewhat 250MB to 70MB size according this site:
https://troypoint.com/stop-kodi-buffering/
But it didn't help.
Does anybody have a idea about this

That happened to me also, the workaround was to use short skip steps only  in the playback settings. I only left -60s to 60s.

Thanks for the hint. But i had already activated the -10s and -30s and 10s and 30s steps only. That didn't help in my case. It hangs even after -10s jumps.

Do you have the hardware acceleration on? Same settings menu in expert mode

No surprise.  KODI is rather a big mess for video playback on these Boxes. We would need an optimized KODI fork just for HiMedia, without it's mostly unpredictable what and how will work in general. I stick KODI only for IPTV streaming, that's still somewhat operational, tho' also not 100% perfect.

It works fine with me, the fast forward and jumps are smoother in Himedia Player but subtitle handling is much superior in kodi player.

There are two items:
- Allow hardware acceleration - MediaCodec (Surface)
- Allow hardware acceleration - MediaCodec

I don't now the difference, but if i deactivate both the effect is gone but the video playback isn't smooth.
If i deactivate the second one only, the effect is gone and the playback is smooth again.

Thanks for the hint.

To avoid uninstalling and reinstalling the firmware unnecessarily for verification.
Can I kindly ask someone who has installed the official FW on board, if he manages to have set the YCbCr 420 10-bit color space (DeepColorMode = 30) @60Hz on 4K HDR TV?
Since I have set YCbCr420 10bit, I always find it YCbCr422 8bit (DeepColorMode = 24).



Thanks for replying.

I'm losing faith in publishing a well-functioning new firmware. I use Q10 Pro with 2.06 firmware.
I'm writing in English with little google help :)
