MK808 struggles with 1080p XBMC

Postby justin2042 » Sat Mar 16, 2013 10:41 am

Ok, I have Finless Bob 1.6.

My kernel is the 720p 1.4ghz OC kernel from 2dark4u.

I used Antutu CPU master to set it to performance mode. (gets friggin hot sometimes)

I have full wifi signal with no dropped connection..lucky I guess.

All 1080p video and some of the better 720p rips will skip and stutter.

What else can I do? Ethernet adapter? another kernel?

Any advice would be appreciated.

Edit: I have tried waiting 10-15 minutes to let the video buffer and my XBMC uses HW decoding via an external player (mx player)

What's your video source? FTP/SMB/UPNP?

Do videos stutter when you open them directly in MX player (not trough XBMC)?

1080p is pointless really but also XBMC is too sketchy and buggy to bother with yet.
I've streamed some really nice 720p fine but the onscreen toolbar won't piss off and other video's are scrambled and crash the box. Also the Youtube plug in looks better than the google store version except the video is also scrambled. XBMC looks promising but I'm not bothering with it until a more stable version comes out.

I have it running full 1080 on external video player the one within xbmc is not using HW decoding yet i'm guessing.
Look here http://www.xbmcandroid.com/

Also I found getting an Ethernet adapter helped as it was buffering a lot on the wireless
