What does that line tell you? Smile

Post the entire log file, not just part of it.

Sorry? I'm not the original poster...just wanted to make clear that he has debug mode on indeed. And he should rather pastebin it than posting here.

Here is the full xbmc.log

Nvidia ION plaform. 512mb ram dedicated to video. XBMC (Live) 9.04. No modifications to the Live distro or whatever. Using the default skin.

I can confirm the stuttering/buffering problem on the Acer Revo. It doesn't seem to be related to the actual bitrate, resolution, or the codec in particular. MKVs (720p and 1080p) exhibit the stuttering more or less severe, and when it occurs, XBMC live loses the HDCP handshake and shows the "buffering..." message. Also, it makes no difference if I assign 256 or 521MB of RAM to the GPU or if I play the MKV from hard disk, USB disk, or via 100Mbit network. I'd blame the MKV support.

Acer Aspire Revo 2GB A230, XBMC Live Babylon 9.04 final, installed on SDHC card.

I have to disagree: mkvs are fine for me on an even less powerful 8300. you might want to repack a file as mp4 or avi just to sort that out.


- Hannes The Hun - 2009-05-29 16:00

also, the CPU load stays way under 10% when the stuttering happens. VDPAU works very well with the Ion, it's just this damn stuttering/buffering that drives me mad Blush

If you have stuttering problems with a particular video file, rather than start guessing, use mediainfo (google for it, there's a version for every platform) to qualify which video content causes problems. Then pastebin this info along with an xbmc.log so that we can look into the issue.

Otherwise, it's just tossing darts at the "possible issue" dart board.


- Hannes The Hun - 2009-05-29 16:50

erhnam just posted his debug.log with exact the same issues http://forum.xbmc.org/showpost.php?p=343387&postcount=1129
but you are completely right, I will do the same this evening together with mediainfo logs of the responsible MKVs (as a former popcorn hour user, I know mediainfo very well )


- lcapriotti - 2009-05-29 17:27

can you try and disable cpu throttling? see here

My guess would actually be safefull screen patching required.

Change resolution in XBMC to 'Auto', and then close are restart XBMC. It'll start windowed. How is the playback in windowed mode? If its okay, press \ to go to fullscreen mode... how is it now?

did exactly as you requested, still stuttering/buffering in windowed mode after auto-res and restart as well as in fullscreen per \

I'm posting full details of files and debug log in some minutes, but it is affecting all of my 720p MKVs

Hey guys,

just talked to a friend with a barebone that does only have a pcie 1x slot and thus is very limited regarding video cards. I saw a 8400gs pci low profile 512mb though.
I guess it has the same specs as the pci-e 8400gs version. Can anyone tell me if that 8400gs pci card will be able to handle 1080p vdpau playback ok?

yes. a friend of mine has such a card (512mb vram) and he runs 1080p on a pentium-III 1Ghz Cool

Hey motd2k. Just a quick question. I have your patch applied and i am getting this:

Code:
21:13:01 T:1890375728 M:3525390336   DEBUG: Error: Requested setting (videoscreen.safefull) was not found.  It must be case-sensitive

in my logfile. My advancedsettings.xml looks like this:

Code:
<advancedsettings>
  <videoplayer>
    <strictbinding>true</strictbinding>
  </videoplayer>
</advancedsettings>

What is wrong here?
