    I installed Kodi from the experimental menu and was having problems exiting out of Kodi back to emulationstation. It would freeze on a black screen. From what I read online, that is a common problem with Kodi 14 and there wasn’t a good solution for it. So, I followed the instructions here https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Setup/wiki/KODI and installed Kodi 15 instead. This fixed the exit bug, but now I have a more annoying problem. Whenever I play a video, the video seems to play at three or four times the normal speed, but the audio plays at normal speed. The audio and video quickly get out of sync and it makes movies un-watchable. Has anyone else experienced this? Is there anything I can do to fix it? Thanks.

    Go to the settings… “Playback”… Make sure “adjust displays refresh rate” is set to always.. Go to “Acceleration”… make sure both “allow hardware acceleration OMXPlayer and MMAL” are checked…

    Try that, let me know what happens

    I had hoped it was something as simple as xbmc settings so those were the first things I tried. No luck. I think something about the kodi installation got messed up or something.

    I had the same issue back in the summer when I first added Kodi to my Pi, but I can’t remember what it was that I changed… It might have been changing the memory split… I not sure what I am currently using, but it’s around 320. Go into the pi settings and set gpu_mem=320… You might not be giving the gpu enough ram. I really wish I could remember what it was that I did to fix it, but I had that issue back in July and I simply can’t remember for the life of me what it was nor off the top of my head anything else to try.

    If your running Kodi on Pi, you should give the GPU around 320 mb of memory anyway, as it needs it to properly run, hopefully that might fix your video issues as well.
