Hi,
I am wondering if anyone can explain the function of the "Hardware Decoding".
If I enable this, my live video from the Phantom 3P is very choppy and freezes for a few seconds. It is impassible to fly in that state.
The recorded video is fine.

Thanks.

It's basically decoding the video. https://www.quora.com/What-is-th ... d-software-decoding
What device are you using, how does it preform when it's disabled?

I am using iPad mini 2 and the firmware 1.8. If I disable this function the video is OK (some artifacts, but not as bad as  enabled).

OK, leave it off. Also, make sure to close all other running apps.

Still not clear to me when do I enable Hardware decoding and for witch device (I'm using iPad mini 2).
I searched different blogs and none has any solid answer. Most blame overheating issue with some iPads, I don't subscribe to this theory.

The point of hardware decoding is to help reallocate the processing power with iOS devices to help reduce overheating and improve overall functionality. It's primarily used with iOS devices with A8 processors (iPad Air 2, iPad Mini 4, iPhone 6) and above. While it would not hurt to have on an iPad Mini 2, which has an A7, it will not show any real improvement to the functionality of the GO app.

Using an iPad Air2 64gb Cellular here, with my Phantom 3 Pro', & I leave my Enable Hardware Decoding on at all times.
My iPad always remains cool, even after four consecutive intelligent flight batteries.

So I too have a pretty consistent problem with my video transmission on my ipad mini 2 being freexing for a prolonged period, pixelated, and just difficult to see what shots I am getting/ recording. I turn off Wifi, bluetooth,...I thought that the ipad mini 2 was the best viewing option to use with my P4P.  Since I live in Florida, heat is always an issue flying. I have also read that changing the transmission frequency, I'm guessing from AUTO to Custom, helps as well?

First, where is the hardware decoder located inside my ipad mini 2 because I can not find it? What is a better viewing option that is more conducive to my environment then to use? i need to make $$. Thx
