EmulationStation Power saver mode discussion

  • Thread to discuss PowerSaver feature in EmulationStation.

    How would you expect the behaviour of PS when using OMX player?

  • @Hex stop video and dim.

  • @meleu Power saver is not the same as screensaver. It toggles Polling and Waiting for event. If Waiting is triggered, video with vlc is stopped, audio is not. This happens due to the screen not drawing new frames.

    Current behaviour for PS is to be disabled on IGameLstView.etName()=="video" where videos are present. If OMX handles videos differently by displaying that section using a secondary thread for rendering then PS can be always on and videos will work nicely
