I watched a 1080p movie last night (Gravity) off my usb hard drive and it stuttered like crazy with the internal player, so I watched it using MX player and it worked pretty well, other than an audio sync problem which seemed to rectify itself after I had paused the movie tryng to figure out how to alter it in MX player.
First... I need to correct the path to the add-ons folder I posted earlier... was wrong... they are located at...
One of the main points and reasons that Beyond XBMC was created was to have a setup that already includes all of the add-ons installed so users would have less setup time. To do that, those had to be placed in the app folder where apps are installed... If you didn't want one that was pre-setup this say, then perhaps another XBMC version would fit you better... but you'd then need to add each add-on you'd want one at a time and not to mention tweak out the build to operate as smoothly as Beyond XBMC does.
... If you do like having it presetup like it is... then you must accept that to remove a pre-installed add-on be done the way it is and requires that you delete them in the manner that was mentioned before.
Hopefully having the full ( and proper ) path to the add-ons now... you'll be able to address the issue with the Karaoke just by deleting the add-on.
This build is primarily made for Rockchip chipsets ( CPU/GPU ) such as the quad core RK3188 and many have reported good results even on the dual core RK3066's as well. The tweaks done are so the GPU can use hardware acceleration. If your device doesn't use one of those chipsets... then that would give you and answer. Recently, Rockchip also released a cheaper CPU/GPU called the RK3188-T which doesn't run as fast as the RK3188... I suspect results on this chipset will vary since the quality of them vary so much.
I'm currently watching the 1080p version of Gravity which is in a MP4 format that is on my Toshiba 2Gb USB hard drive I've got attached directly to my Minix Neo X7 .... not a single stutter/jutter or anything, all smooth up to the 25 minute mark so far.
Used Gotham before, worked smoother. But with icefilms the subs didn't work proper on beyond they work. (download,temp,play) Dunno why.
All I need is fusion, icefilms, 1channel, sports devil and subs.
Issues I came across in beyond mouse pointer out of sync (reboot app fixes that) "exit" time takes long some times. Some addons random reboot to main. But that's most likely not a beyond issue. For the rest its cool. And what I want it to do, it does. So its all good.

The only time I've seen the mouse pointer out of sync... was when I minimized the system bar after opening XBMC ( any version )... then the pointer was always about 70px too high... this is a ROM/OS issue and isn't XBMC related.
I can't remember the exit times on other versions of XBMC enough to comment... to tell the truth, when I close it down I usually need to go somewhere or to bed so I never really notice it much.
The Gravity file is
Size ...............: 15.4 GB Video ..............: 1920x1080 Bitrate ............: 21816 kbps (x264 High@L4.1) Audio 1.............: English DTS-HD MA 5.1 Ch 2369 kbps
Another thing I will have to look in to when I have time is getting the Opitical audio out to work. I had a quick play changing the settings in XBMC to make it work but all I got was a static noise.
Beyond xbmc doesn't work properly on kitkat tho as far as I am aware and you will not get hardware acceleration.
To Infinity and Beyond.... XBMC
I think the secret source you added for 1Channel is no longer working, as my ISP (Talk Talk uk) is running DPI and it now seems they are blocking your proxy
It is back up for now but I don't know if it will last forever. I shall make another as a backup.
Edit: Here is a backup proxy in case the other goes down. http://beyond.netau.net/
To Infinity and Beyond.... XBMC
Hi flumpster ,
first i would like to thank you for this amazing version of xbmc
Second , could you please please please take a look why xbmc gotham doesn't play 1080p movies well , cause i like gotham for 3d subtitles support , i have many 3d movies and i can't use beyondXbmc for that
Please take a look , i dont think it will hard for you to fix it , you're a genius .
ps: whe i try to play 1080p in gotham , it play well about 30seconds and frames drop dramatically to 10/12 fps
Flumpster can you also please have a look at the librtmp issue ? I managed to find an update librmp for gotham but not for beyond xbmc
