Hi,

I am trying to play 4k video on a 4k display using imx8m evk on kernel release 4.14.78ga. on checking the FB mode using fbset command,

mode "3840x2160"

   geometry 3840 2160 3840 2160 32

   timings 0 0 0 0 0 0 0

   accel true

   rgba 8/16,8/8,8/0,0/0

endmode

But when I play a video it plays fine on terminal without error, but can't see any frame on display. On booting I can't see a desktop screen too. Is there something I am missing. As according to release note, 4k should be working on primary HDMI. On loading dual display dtb again 4k display won't show any thing on screen. Please help me with this.

Hi,

I have tried to test 4k video using gstreamer pipeline on demo images for following releases:

* 4.9.51

* 4.6.88

* 4.14.62

* 4.14.78

* 4.14.98

But as result Display shows nothing and on display it  a msg appears as "No signal".

Is it possible that my 4k TV(display) is not compatible. If so can you suggest a display with brand and module No. on which you have tested. I will try to arrange that same module TV.

Hi,

I  was able to check 4k video on other TV, and was able to play video.

On playing video in standard dtb video plays with 10 fps.

On playing with dual display dtb, video still plays better but 20fps only as "force-hantrotile=true" option is available.

Have you seen why by playing a video of 60fps and 30 fps. What was the out-come. in both dual and single display scenario.

How can I improve this. Or this is a limitation.

video link I tried is,
