The new decoder that wetek was working is out for testing!

At WeTek, we're always working to improve.
We hear our community feedback, and we take it very seriously!

So, with this in mind, our developers started to make a new decoder for OpenELEC.

This way, our zapping speed on OpenELEC is MUCH MORE IMPROVED!

I'm having a 1 second channel swicth on SD Channels and 2 second switch on HD channels

Please don't forget this is WORK in PROGRESS!

For now, the known issues are :
No audio passthrough, AAC decoding doesn't work

I advise everyone who wants to test this new decoder, to make a backup of their OpenELEC settings!

This is the link to download the latest development build by our developers!


There is a new option on
 Settings->Video->Acceleration->Enable experimental decoder

It is enabled by default and forces Kodi to use new decoder. At any time you can deselect the option and Kodi will use old decoder
