Hi rern,

I am afraid it does not make any difference whether the line is there or not. The text scrolls on my Firefox desktop, as well as the Android Tablet.

I have tried deleting and recreating the bookmark.

The bookmark was the first item on the Library page before the problem update, afterwards it had moved to last item.

Throttling when using webradio on local browser

Postby vennesch » 01 Mar 2019, 14:30

Hi there,

I love the enhanced UI. But the problem is, when I use my local browser (which I prefer) and when I play webradio, my RPI 3B is directly throttling. This is only the case when I am in the playback screen. I find it kinda strange because it is not the most difficult task to perform for this CPU I guess.

Already tried to set turboboost to 0 and to put GPU-mem at 32/64/128/512 but that did not resulted in a solution.

Can you recommend any settings in my config?
And if not, is it possible to have the option to turn off the animated VU meter? (would be a pitty, but then at least I could enjoy the rest of the eye candy)...

My configuration:
RPI 3B, Hifiberry Dac Plus, fast 32GB card, hooked up to receiver and tv, bluetooth disabled, webradio via WiFi
RuneAudio. 0.5B build 10 (tried 7 and 9 with same results)

Any suggestions?

thanks in advance

Simon

SSH command: top will show you which one is consuming your CPU cycles. (Sort the list by press shift-R key.)

The VU meter is just a 120KB gif file.

Hi rern,

adding/deleting CoverArt-Bookmarks don´t work anymore. It seems to work only on "normal" bookmarks. If you delete a CoverArt-Bookmark the bookmark still remains even after reload.

Edit: After starting a webradio-playback it works now. *strange*
Previous test was with empty playlist ...

Where are CoverArt-Bookmarks stored (to manually remove, if needed)?

regards, Andy

There are some bugs in bookmarks arrangement and renaming which just have been fixed. To be released with next update.

thumbnail.jpg files for coverart bookmarks are right there in each bookmarked directory.
- Delete - show star icon
- Replace - force bookmarks to show replaced images
- Add - show images instead of icon for directories without coverart files / embedded

@rern looking at my screenshot, can you point down where the unusual CPU-load comes from? I googled the PSID but can't find anything.

Thanks in advance

It's animation things that RPi doesn't do it well.
Blinking dots and animated VU meter. A simple CSS keyframes rule and a small animated gif are what it takes to consume that high CPU cycles. (while it can render HD movies just fine.)

So for local browsers, Midori or Chromium, I'll replace both with static ones instead.
