Re: Kodi video playback stuttering with H264 1080p movies

I have reflashed the GB with the Android L 160604 firmware and reinstalled (remove + install) the RKMC application by manually downloading the APK from the designated link. The version number seemed to be the same as the one installed on the 160604 image but I reinstalled it anyway. The original, st...

Re: Kodi video playback stuttering with H264 1080p movies

Yes, it seems like a very bad quality SOC if the Geekbuying technical staff couldn't cobble together a working video playback since the release of the GeekBox (9 months ago). I am quite surprised and saddened that Geekbuying thought that this product is anywhere near production quality instead of a ...

Re: Kodi video playback stuttering with H264 1080p movies

The 2016-JUL Android-only firmware solves the stuttering but is also mostly useless because of the locked, wrong aspect ratio issue (always stretched and cannot be corrected in any way). The 2016-JAN Android+Ubuntu firmware makes the stuttering better but it is still visibly present. Geekbox + Kodi ...

Re: ROM: Android L V160612

I have upgraded to this ROM version and the continuity of the H264 video playback seems to be better (no annoying freezes during H264, 1080p playback). However, video playback is now COMPLETELY broken because the aspect ratio is wrong on all of the movies in Kodi. (all of the movies are stretched) P...

Re: Kodi video playback stuttering with H264 1080p movies

Maybe this is a bug in Kodi and was fixed in the final version of Kodi 15.2. The pre-installed version is an RC version of Kodi 15.2, not the final release version. Can I delete the pre installed Kodi version and install the 15.2 final version of Kodi from the Play store? Is the pre-installed Kodi c...

Kodi video playback stuttering with H264 1080p movies

I experience stuttering during the playback of fullHD (1080p) movies encoded with the h264 codec. The videos mostly play fine but there are long stutters (5-10s) from time to time, which destroy the movie experience completely. I have checked the movies against my Raspberry Pi 1 running OpenELEC (Ko...

Re: Geekbox Q & A

For me, the LTS Ubuntu is also a big deal.

I hope Geekbuying releases Ubuntu 16.04 in next April and supports it during its lifetime (until 2021).

Same for Android.

Review units + independent review

I know that the Geekbox is only at pre-sale but it would be nice to have some independent reviews about it. I have ordered a unit based on the info on the product page but a proper review would be very nice to show the unique features. I recommend cnx-software and liliputing for reviewers, they cove...
