Looking thru the folders using WinSCP i noticed skyscraper is located at /opt/retropie/configs/all/skyscraper/
Do i just copy the the cache folder and copy it to a new image when the time comes? will that work so i don't need to scrap them. Or do i put it in the import folder? It will save time then rescraping everything.
You should really read the docs on Skyscraper - especially the part about the cache.
@chubsta Anytime. Something else that may be useful to you is adjusting the crf value, sometimes called constant quality. A setting of 22 is usually default but that will make large videos that look good full screen, if its just going to be in the corner of your theme you may want to go with a higher value. I use crf 28 (the higher the value the lower the quality) This brought ~100gb worth of videos down to just over 32gb
@mitu@GoldManSex778 - Thanks for the advice. I converted with handbrake, basically opened the video in h/b and ran it through without messing around with the settings.
Now both the portrait and landscape videos display with the correct aspect ratio and work with omxplayer
Thanks so much.
@mitu - Thanks for the link. I added the system environment variables mentioned in the ARCH wiki and verified the were set and showed up using vainfo. VLC itself still was accelerated (~30% CPU), emulationstation was still not @~165% cpu
After watching the video in your link, I found where I needed to turn off the OMX Player. (even though he syggested it be on) It is off and now I see the video preview!!! Love it. Thanks a lot. I still do not see <video> tags anywhere though.
