I’m more inclined to think it’s going to be the hardware on the B just isn’t up to the task of running the emulator without hardware decoding, but I’m willing to test it out.

I’ll post back once I’ve got this B up and running.

C..

Same issue after creating a new system on the class 10 sdcard, it’s just chop central. Looks like the B just isn’t up to the task as things stand now. Was definitely worth a shot! I’ll play with settings and with moving the data to an external source when I get home just to be thorough, but I’m not expecting much.

Going to build a 2 up and get it going so I can see Daphne on a Pi!

C..

The Pi2 software decoding gets compiled with neon, something the others don’t have (if I remember correctly, it’s been over a year since I used my Pi2). The experts here will have to explain how neon is a sign create speedup.

For this to work with brute CPU force on a Pi B, I would guess a video file that is easily software decoded (as the daphne developer used mjpeg but still needed some kind of acceleration on the orig Pi), or added code to use the Pi B’s Hardware Mpeg2 purchased codec.
