    since Kodi 14 I have a problem with playing Videos or watching TV. Sometimes I got video and audio. Very often I only get audio.

    On Kodi/XBMC 13 there wasn't such a problem.

    Only when I disable the hardware acceleration "amcodec" I always get video and audio.

    Is there any solution?

    I would like to know the answer to this as well.

    Simply because they have no permissions to use the amlogic decoder.
    Our version is optimized with all permissions granted.

    Ok. But why does it work with kodi 13 (not the minix version). Shouldn't there be the same problem?

    Sorry, but with SPMC there is the same problem. Mostly only audio, no video.

    Is there no solution? This would mean I could only use the Kodi version from Minix and not the original one. In the meantime there is Kodi 14 and Kodi 15 Alpha but I can't use them. Minix is on Kodi/XBMC 13.2.x.x.

    Why do I want to use the newer one? In the new versions of Kodi there are newer Software for the TV part and switching channels is much faster. But unfortunately I can't use them...

    With Kodi 15 Alpha 2 it is much better. Not perfect, but much better.
