PMP Embedded build/drivers
I run pmp embedded of a nuc6cays and I am hoping to see better support in the foreseeable furture. The new 7th gen NUC's and pentium NUCs seem very popular on this forum and libreelec. Why then is it, that when running embedded, the system it not able to perform its best, due to what seems like missing updates to player and drivers.
I am of course referencing the fact that i with the NUC6CAYS with windows can play 10bit video and 4k@60 but not the embedded version. And yes, I am aware the fact that 60 is not needed for playback at 99% content, but the interface seems laggy in 30 frames.
- PMP Embedded is based on OpenELEC -> later ported to LibreELEC - or so claimed in a release note in the 0.x period. But when getting info (overlay) from PMP it says openelec still?
- Driver used (for Intel) is MESA 12.0.3. If you look at mesa website, it updates, a lot. Why is it the drivers are not kept up to date?
Moreover, I see libreelec builds with 10-bit support working. I recognize the need for stable platform, but there are users that are looking for bleeding edge, willing to test. Could it be possible to release versions of pmp with a better updated base?
I have thought about compiling my own build, but it might be better if plex distributes one for more to use and experiment.
