Hi all,

 

If anybody is interested in running Kodi UI in FullHD on a VU+, please check out the attachment.
Note that I'm talking here only about UI, not the media which is played by gstreamer in whatever resolution available.

 

How to use:

1. Compile OpenPLi as usual.

2. Comment "rm_work" in site.conf so that the sources will not be deleted:

#INHERIT += "rm_work"

3. Build Kodi by running

MACHINE=<machine> bitbake enigma2-plugin-extensions-kodi

4. Put file from the archive into folder

.../openpli-oe-core/build/tmp/work/<machine>-oe-linux-gnueabi/kodi/*/git/xbmc/windowing/egl/

5. Recompile Kodi. For example, by running:

export PATH=$PATH:.../openpli-oe-core/build/tmp/sysroots/x86_64-linux/usr/bin/arm-oe-linux-gnueabi
cd .../openpli-oe-core/build/tmp/work/<machine>-oe-linux-gnueabi/kodi/*/git/
make -j 4
arm-oe-linux-gnueabi-strip --remove-section=.comment --remove-section=.note kodi.bin

Do you mean here 1920x1080 skin on Kodi? (as far I understood we currently have 1280x720)...

No, I'm not talking about the skins.

I mean that currently the Kodi's platform code (EGLNativeTypeV3D.cpp) initializes native UI window to be always 1280x720.

Internally the window is created in libKodiGLESPL.so in function GLES_Native_CreateNativeWindow. And this function always uses 1280x720 with stretch enabled.

So even if your display resolution was 4K, you'd see the Kodi UI in 1280x720 (stretched of course).

I confirm the above.

The movie/video was already shown in FHD,,,, as far I understand this is only User Interface Skin related.

Kodi UI and its skin will be FHD. Movies will be played in whatever resolution they are.

I build it with your changes in for solo2. If 720p is set in the system nothing changes, put 1080P changes the skin to fullhd. And in the log writes 720P.  Thank you.

I'm not sure I got it.

In my code the resolution is set to 1920x1080 @ 60 Hz, so my log contains

NOTICE: EGL initial desktop resolution 1920x1080 @ 60.00 - Full Screen
 DEBUG: EGL initial desktop resolution 1920x1080 @ 60.00 - Full Screen 3DSBS

NOTICE: Found resolution 1920 x 1080 for display 0 with 1920 x 1080 @ 60.000000 Hz

If you see something else, it means you run a different binary.
