I found the page that lists the VLC settings, but those specific options aren't there in my VLC.
It says to set it to OpenMax IL, but that's not an option in VLC. I set it to X11 Video Output (XCB) and that's definitely helped.
I have two MKV video files I've been trying to play.
1) 720p at 1.1GB in file size
2) 1080p at 7.9GB in size
The 720p will now play.....ish. The video will play as normal and the sound is fine, but it's stuttering and lagging very badly. So it's not smooth at all. I also can't seek to any point - if I try to seek to the 20 min mark, the video freezes and the sound becomes very choppy
The 1080p video won't play at all. It will play a few seconds of the audio but then that's it.
It's clearly a bottleneck between the chipset and the USB3 stick I'm trying to use. It's a 64GB USB3 Sandisk with Android OTG. So it's got a micro USB connector at the other end.
What are my options? Is anyone willing to spend some time nutting this one out for me please?
