Comment (by Peter Bennett):

 To use the Fire stick $K with MythTV some settings are needed, apart from
 this patch. In playback profile you need to set MPEG2 as software decode.
 H264 and H265 can be software decode or mediacodec. When setting software
 decode set CPUs to 4. Use OpenGL render. For deinterlacer user either
 Linear Blend (HW-GL) or Bob (2x, hw-gl). Do not use Linear Blend (2X),
 that causes slowdowns. In advanced playback settings enable AVSYNC2 and
 YV12, or AVSYNC2, UVYV and Extra Stage. The second set seems to be
 slightly smoother.

 Fire Stick 4K needs a 32 bit build.
