No sound and 100% CPU when using Kodi

I just installed a fresh diepi on my NanoPi NEO4. After basic configuration I installed kodi via dietpi-software.
Since I like to use iptvsimple i did:

apt-get update
apt-get install kodi-pvr-iptvsimple

Everytime I start kodi with startkodi I get this messages:

failed to open
libva info: VA-API version 1.10.0
libva error: vaGetDriverNameByIndex() failed with unknown libva error, driver_name = (null)

After configuring iptvsimple I switched to TV, I got some crackling noise on my monitor (connected via hdmi). The tv-stream is running, but all 6 cores of my NEO4 are at 100% CPU now.

I tried using LibreElec just to compare. With LiberElec CPU load is about 40% only and sound works fine. But with LibreElec WiFi did not work :frowning:

How to solve the errors showed above?
How to reduce CPU load?
How to get sound work?


I have seen that LibreElec uses OpenGL 3.0 Mesa 21.03 while DietPi uses OpenGL 2.1 Mesa 20.3.5.

And what is with libva when using the Mali T860 GPU?
