4K TV Streamer powered by LibreELEC Kodi (successor of the EM7580)
I measured over 80 Mbps in both cases with ookla perhaps not the most accurate method Off-topic: I'm not sure of the technical validity of those HDR releases, if they indeed are the ones I think they are. I'm not sure you can capture HDR metadata to a file, it was probably inserted after capture with generic or assumed values. I was about to return the box in favour of a S with gigabit interface, when I realized where the bottleneck is. So, if I use the Kodi browser to list my videos over NFS, so therefore I'm assuming I'm using its "libnfs" I think I have seen this name somewhereI got very disappointing results even a 75 Mbit is breaking and caching.
A simple test, from shell ssh :. You can add later on what works for you in this script: Autostart. I would like to say that I didn't apply any changes to the way Kodi caches yet, so I believe there is root to improve the results. I can play 4K videos from external hard disk but couldn't stream properly through network, any help appreciated.
You should pitch this to the Kodi devs, wouldn't all platforms benefit from this? Eventually the devs could change the way we add network sources right now to always be mounted your way. I can play without problems these files I'm testing more my wireless at this point as I have more bandwidth :. I can't see heavily buffering today but it seems that the GPU can't cope with it instead. Yesterday I was running Beta4a and today I'm on Beta5, maybe is there a difference?
I will try tomorrow from a USB key to see how much it can handle, but so far I'm more than happy as Mbit will cover videos for a while at least for me. PS: sorry for the no-beautiful links. There is a Kodi patch that aims to improve libnfs performance a bit, I will include in a next build.
Let's hope it will get performance a little bit closer to native mounts. I think he wants to setup a nfs share like a smb share so his Kodi devices can access it presume his media is stored on a computer running a Windows OS. Also, it really depends on how your network is designed I have all Gigabit equipment and my "NAS" is a virtual machine running Linux.
Regarding mounting NFS from the NAS, maybe you can check with the vendor or Google it for the appropriate string to mount it over linux. I didn't test from USB today yet, but I don't expect to see major differences. But in my case, "mount Consider getting a USB2 gigabit network adapter.
Those with asix chipsets have been reported to work out of the box. I'm fortunate to have Wireless AC in my box, however the box can handle only up to Mbit bitrate streams, so even only Mbit should be adequate.

I was using xbmc on my original Xbox. However, I have always been a basic user. I run Kodi on my htpc to play my media library. The info I've read isn't clicking with me. I don't even know what dsplayer and madvr are. Is there a simple guide I can follow? Kodi's best option is Kodi-DSPlayer. It uses madVR. The only issue is the author stopped updating it. It's based on Kodi This link will walk you through the setup.
Or any other streaming box? I've not used the Neo, so I can't comment. The Vero is very fast, very customizable, and works great with my set-up. Best that I've used. Any idea if there will be an updated version this year as it is a year old now?Login Register Login Remember me.

So final one - should I buy this board or TV Box is a better solution?
That device probably has a better support for 4k multimedia but x more expensive and still I do not need all these features. Joined: May Since the board does support 4k natively, it sounds like you have one option for software that is operational right now, and a second option is being worked on so should hopefully be available soon. For the best video performance, you'll want Android atm anyway, so with the right apps installed, it should work just fine. I posted about it here on a different forum.

To answer some of your questions we posted a short video review to our YouTube channel that explains some of the new capabilities and shows the new LibreELEC 9. The 0. Gigabit Ethernet that runs at full speed and USB 3. WiFi and Bluetooth performance is essentially the same as the previous model — only a minor change from Bluetooth 4. LibreELEC 9. New 4K video capabilities still have plenty of rough edges to be smoothed out, but the Pi Foundation developers have been pushing fixes to the Alpha test team at a phenomenal rate over the last month and that will continue as the userbase expands.
The 4B now uses SPI flash for the bootloader. Everyone will need a new case — the board layout is different to previous models. The updated cases will ship in late July. We are still using the Linux 4. On the human side of the project several maintainers also have reduced availability for support due to work and family commitments, and the summer vacation season is about to start.
Combining these factors together, the team felt it was better to be patient and not rush releases. At the moment the master branch uses Linux 5. NB: Users of the new Amlogic AD based Khadas VIM3 board which also lauches today will be able to use the master-branch nightly images — we have a device-tree prepared. If you do want to experiment — please be prepared to submit log files and work with developers to hunt down problems and test solutions.LibreELEC 9. With LE 9.

So if the video you are watching exceeds that it will stutter. Network overhead, etc and you are getting less than If that was the case then it would also stutter on my TV cause that is wired Mbps aswell.
Had to make my own male to male USB cable to connect it to PC, then took some time to figure out how to short circuit it cause this doesn't have the button for it either The whole Android felt like it does on those Chinese tablets too, awful and everything constantly throwing errors, crashing etc and everyone praised LE over Android so I switched over immediatly.
And like I said, it shouldn't be a network issue cause my TV plays them just fine over the network but I hate the lack of proper library there.
Gonna get my USB stick from friend later today and see if it still lags from that but somehow I doubt it will fix anything. Do you know what kind of network performance is common with the NFS protocol? If SMB is so inefficient but I don't understand that chart at all, doesn't make any sense with those numbers like jd17 said. So it has to be Samba being a bottleneck for me, apparently it is that bad then. Yes but you cannot see them on your Library, you can watch them through there but they don't show up on your library which sucks.
The other work around is an USB gigabit Ethernet adapter. You can't get gigabit speeds over USB 2 but it is easily fast enough for high bitrate 4K content. What the title says. I currently run the 8. Quote from Stige. I can play sample files just fine but it's the massive movies that have this problem.
Why would that be impossible over network? It's only like 67Mbps overall bitrate. Is the chart on SMB performance? And what is the actual scale?
