Hi,

 

Broadcom drop support in there drivers for VP9 video format, the one used by YouTube.

So you get sound but no picture.

The chipset isn't the problem, Broadcom, the manifacturer of the SoC, has removed the support from the SDK, so it can't be included in the drivers anymore. Other manufacturers will have the same problem when they want to release updated drivers.

 

The only thing you can do is manually install older drivers, and hope that works and doesn't introduces other issues...


Currently in use: VU+Duo 4K (2xFBC S2), Amiko Viper T2C (T2), SAB Alpha Triple HD (S2+T2), Zgemma H3.T2C (T/C), Zgemma H6 (fallback), VU+Zero (fallback)

Hello WanWizard,

 

I tried to search online to find this information but I only found that Broadcom was one of the supporters of VP9...what happened? Did they withdraw? Do you know the reasons (a mistake I hope... : )

Heh, I guess at vuplus they did not yet aknowledge it...there is an open issue since 2018 on their 'github-bugtracker' [1] but nobody replied.

 

Cheers

No clue what happened, the only thing we know is that the current version of the SDK no longer supports it, so new drivers will no longer have that support.

 

We don't have access to the SDK or contact with Broadcom, that is all under very heavy NDA.

 

And I doubt VU+ ever looks at that github account, they don't use it for development, it only contains the BSP they make for us.

Ah, ok, the typical story-ending with closed-source drivers....they get unmaintained, then obsoleted and finally bitrot comes. Sadly.

About vuplus. I have no words anymore...just very little hopes.

It looks more that broadcom did not (want to) pay youtube for vp9 licenses... so they had to stop vp9 support.

The solution is watch youtube via your smart TV, AppleTV or Google Chrome device. This will 'always' work without hacking and ton times per year adapting youtube plugin when youtube make changes to their security stuff...

Doh, I naively thought it was royalty-free (thus preferred to say H.265 / HEVC)

Note the enigma2 youtube plugin does display videos of Youtube...simple enough.

Or you can install kodilite on OpenPLi and use the addons.

 

Anyway, for the initial poster info, iirc last drivers working with Youtube-App where at the 6.0-rc epoch.

Somehow, very seldom, the Youtube-App videos do play...I can't say why...normally you only see one frame on the fb when exiting the app.

vp9 is needed for 4K youtube... the non 4K video's should not be involved...
