    Thank you very much!

    iOS 9.1's AirPlay compatibility was not fixed in last patch/update, so could you please verify if this is fixed on v1.0.25? I'll have to test this later --- especially if this has been fixed :).

    thank you so much for the extreme effort....

    using spdif passthrough and testing lip sync issue (only) on mkv files with mx player 1.7.40 (my main concern) and your kodi version :
    there's definitely a huge improvement and you obviously did a great job to work out the audio sync issue..... Thank you big time , though you can still notice the sync issue , but in a very minor (as in minor) way.
    i truly believe that your upcoming updates will fix the issue for good since you managed to do so in version 1.0.25 with almost 90 to 95% success...
    keep it up and God bless you all....

    what is amazing about the zidoo x6 pro (rk3368) (as compared to the rk3288 boxes with any kind of rom, official or customed) is the amazing video playback quality....
    it's obviously a matter of time to work out any reported issue by customers since zidoo development team is so dedicated..... thanks

    Audio out sync when playback start with Audio playing.

    Audio close to be in sync when your switch the Audio Stream format back and forth..

    I just installed 1.0.25. After installation Kodi's official BBC Player and ITV player addons are not able to stream content efficiently - video stream halts, but sound can be heard (and lipsync is not correct when video is visible). Same happens with other Kodi streaming contents, for example several video-streams will be frozen, but sound can be heard... VERY STRANGE...

    I tried to Rollback ("update") back to v1.0.24 but that's not allowed (notification/error code: cannot install this build over newer build) :(.

    I tested my LiveTV stream (using DVBLink) and the transport stream .ts mpeg2 file still is a hit and miss. Either the audio is way out of sync or I get no audio at all. At some point stopping/starting the TV channel resulted in a good perfect audio sync situation.

    Then played some TV Series (1080P/23.976/h264/MKV) and audio was way out of sync, but when I disabled the autorefresh rate on start/stop this video seemed in Sync.
    Then playing a 50hz 1080P h264 MKV file failed again?!

    I tested DTS/DD/DTS HD mkv files. Half of the files are now synced. the other half remain out of sync. The problem is that there is no consistent behaviour on this. I may play a file and the syncing to be almost spot on, stop the playback, go out to the menu and then after I resume the playback audio is out of sync again.

    1. Syncing in some files is indeed almost corrected (it needs some .0xx correction).
    2. Many files remain out of sync
    3. Syncing behaviour is not consistent. I may play the file twice, the first time it is ok, the second is out of sync.

    I hope this helps....

    Audio synchronization unpredictable in 1.0.25 (passthrough) :):confused::eek::(

    I have made some additional usability tests within Kodi streaming addons (v.1.0.25):

    There is a visible lipsync mismatch on the USTVnow's CBS channel. USTV's PBS channel's video will frozen's after 10sec from the start but voice can be heard (this happened multiple times). Can you verify this - is this a network/addon issue or does other users have similar experiences?

    Some good news: BBCplayer works better today (tested 720p), so some of those earlier error's could be caused by network issues on the original source or due the VPN-capacity? Just a crosscheck - does your BBCplayer work fine?

    update ;
    as i mentioned in my previous post , (playing mkv files using mxplayer with spdif passthrough) the video playback clarity and sharpness is truly truly awesome , and the audio sync has improved big time.... however , i noticed some kind of video hiccups or stutter after every 5 seconds of playback (such thing was not even present in the condemned v1.0.24).... it seems that the audio sync issue was somehow improved on the expense of video playback smoothness...

    Ok, below some of my initial feedback based on some short late night testing yesterday :

    -> Audio / Video sync greatly improved, BUT there it is somewhat unpredictable. I've tested several MKV's en BR-Folders and most of the time audio/video was OK, when going "fast forward" in the movie then there is some time after the movie resume where there is bad lipsync but this "catches up" after 5-10seconds.

    -> Several DTS/DTS-TrueHD "sync losses" during playback noticed, never seen it before. Sometimes MKV starts in "Stereo" and when I go to "Audio" in KODI and then disable/enable "Passthrough" then receiver makes some clicks and the good Audio track is running. From then on it seems "stable"

    -> DVD ISO no improvement, still 500ms delay on audio / video (Are DVD ISO's so much more "difficult" to handle ? Why the heck is it so problematic ?)

    -> I did not notice any specifc degraded video quality (2D) or something. Picture looking good to my eyes.

    -> No testing performed on 3D stuff, no testing on any KODI addon that does something with streaming or something (don't use any)

    So all in all I see improvement in this area for sure! Keep up the pace coders !

    Hi all,

    i am sorry to say that I replaced the Zidoo X6 with my old and hated WDTV. However, the WDTV does play mkv files without audio sync problems. My personal believe is that the team made a huge mistake introducing this too early. As time goes by people will switch and new buyers will look at other products. The only solution is a fix asap, otherwise the product is 'lost'.
    After 3 firmware updates I am done....i will check in the new year to see if this product will ever work as it should.

    All the best,

    Can there be hardware VC1 codec support? I have bluray content in VC1 and on this release Kodi picks up ffmpeg as decoder, so it can't play it correctly (about 10fps max).

    Hi all,

    about the 3D ISO movie, MINIONS tested on firmware 1.0.25 some comments:
    HD 2TB conected from USB 2.0 dock station to ZIDOO USB PORT

    1) With Kodi do not work properly. swiching on 3D but image is like to be double sized! hard to see.
    2) with native player some considerations. On first play it crashed at 00:01:23 of the film, I reset the zidoo... second play...crashed on minute 00:04:21 of the film... started again for 3rt time the film and did not crashed!! so it works fine since the end of the film.
    ¿what to say? works and do not works... I have had to spend 15 minutes reseting the zidoo and starting the movie several times...

    I have no issues playing local files using mx player with proper codecs. for kodi, during streaming I was having audio synch issues and black screen stutters. the following kodi settings resolved both

    system,settings, audio output, output config= fixed

    system, video, playback, adj display refresh rate= off

    as of now no issues with either local files or streaming
