XBMC will not play some YouTube HD videos properly. As far as I can tell it works for SD videos. I already tried adding

start_x=1

to the /boot/config.txt file, as this seems to have helped some people. I also tried setting the max. resolution from 1080p to "Ask" as suggested here[1].

I am running the latest XBMC version from[2] on Raspbian.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

  • For anyone who might experience a similar problem: Increasing the video memory might help. I set it to 128 MB according to [1]. Fixed the problem. [1] raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/questions/673/… – Phil Feb 27 '14 at 7:26

  • I currently have the same problem. I saw the log file and its related to Youtube addon. We can send a bug report. – Willian Paixao Feb 28 '14 at 15:34
