Aside from the apk size difference, movian compiled with clang/clang++ (7339KB) crashes more often and is a lot slower, compared to gcc/g++ build (6884KB).

It is most obvious with plugins and regex calculations, but also the GUI in general.

I compiled movian with gcc/g++ and it is much better (like it was in 5.0.491). Works fine on:

MiBox3 (Android 7)
Sony TV (Android 6.0.1)
Lenovo P1 (Android 6.0.1)

The thing that prevented build 5.0.507 from running on my 6.0.1 devices I guess was CFLAGS_com += -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64.

With it - movian crashes on startup, without it all is ok (even with gcc).

Ok, ignore my previous conclusion about clang/gcc. I guess it was just that day that everything seems to run slow :)
