#12697 closed Patch - Bug Fix (fixed)

Raspberry pi: Cater for ffmpeg fallback

Reported by: Peter Bennett <pgbennett@…> Owned by: Peter Bennett
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.28.1
Component: Ports - rPi Version: Master Head
Severity: medium Keywords: Raspb erry Pi
Cc: Ticket locked: no

Description

If there is no MPEG2 license installed on the raspberry pi and you have the "OpenMAX Normal" profile selected, the player falls back to ffmpeg. With the current settings the playback becomes jerky.

It needs to have 4 CPUS in order to play effectively. This patch updates the default profile to allow 4 CPUS. With 4 CPUs the playback quality is excellent. In fact I prefer it this way and have commented the MPEG2 license on my frontend.
