Really appreciate all the hard work that's gone into Frodo and IMHO what you've achieved since Eden is simply epic.

Btw has a codename for XBMC v13 G... whatever been decided yet?

It's XBMC Grrrrr if I tell you I'd have to... Smile

I wasn't after a date of when an official stable release might happen, just an indication of what the current plan was. Being a long time user I fully understand the "it'll be ready when it's ready" mantra around here, if that's not going to be possible at the same time as other platforms get their stable final build of Frodo then I happily wait patiently hoping that one day I might find a surprise on the xbmc.org page.

Thanks again to all the XBMC team for your amazing work

Hi guys, new here and really need an advice.

I've got an AllWinner A10 running Android 4 and I've installed the latest version of XBMC.

So far it looks great - but all my data is stored on an external HDD, connected via USB.

Now, my regular file browser can find the HDD without a problem - but for some reason, XBMC simply can't!

It's not in the folder options, and I can only seem to be able to search within the root of my device.
I can see the external SD card slot - but not the HDD.

Any ideas\suggestion? I've searched everywhere...

Thanks!

Hi,

I have Diceplayer set up to play mkv's etc as I don't have hardware decoding but it wont work with BBC Iplayer or similar plugins.

Is it possible to have set rules for different plugins or hold to select which player I want to use?

Basically I want streams to play with the internal player and mkv's etc to play with Dice or MX.

Can anyone help me with what I need to add to the playercorefactory.xml to make it work?

Thanks

playercorefactory>
<players>
<player name="MPC-HC" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true">
<filename>com.mxtech.videoplayer.ad</filename>
<hidexbmc>true</hidexbmc>
</player>
</players>
<rules action="prepend">
<rule video="true" player="MPC-HC"/>
</rules>
</playercorefactory>

Hi is there anyone with a galaxy nexus on android 4.2.1 running xbmc with MX Player patch? If so, could you please point me to the link for this file. The xbmc+MX player apks I've installed keeps crashing upon loading app. The following message is being displayed: " Unfortunately, xbmc stopped working". Thanks

We'd need a log from the actual crash. You can get that log from clicking on the "report"-button in the window "Unfortunately XBMC has stopped working".
Another solution would be using logcat (there are apps for that, I think. Look in the play-store) to provide us with a logfile of the crash.


So - now onto my question:
I am providing nightly-builds for the amlplayer-folks (although I myself don't sport a amlplayer-device), but they suddenly stopped working.
The initial error was:
Code:
WARNING: Unable to resolve: libamplayer.so audio_set_delay, reason: Symbol not found: load_library[1091]: Library 'libmaliinstr.so' not found
18:23:31 T:1148264   ERROR: Unable to resolve exports from dll libamplayer.so
We resolved this by installing the Mali GPU Performance Server (= libmaliinstr.so) into the /system/lib of the android-platform. That resolved this symbol fine, however - this just leads to another crash:
Code:
23:19:53 T:1151616   DEBUG: Loading: /system/lib/libamplayer.so
23:19:53 T:1151616 WARNING: Unable to resolve: libamplayer.so audio_set_delay, reason: Symbol not found: link_image[1936]:
73 could not load needed library 'libpthread.so.0' for 'libmaliinstr.so' (load_library[1091]: Library 'libpthread.so.0' not found
23:19:53 T:1151616   ERROR: Unable to resolve exports from dll libamplayer.so
Now - since we are on Android, we have a different implementation of libpthread from Bionic and my guess is that simply pushing "libpthread.so.0" to /system/lib wouldn't suffice. How would one resolve that error?

I'm having trouble getting it to output to Bluetooth on my Galaxy S3. It also won't play some of my ISOs. Otherwise, what I've been waiting for for a long time!

The day people actually read threads...
There is no hardware acceleration yet, so they won't playback smooth.

@Canute: Can you post debug-logs?

Yes, see here:
http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=External_players

For example:
Code:
<rules action="prepend">
   <rule filetypes="mkv" filename=".*720p.*" player="MPC-HC"/>
</rules>

He might want to use the <rule internetstream="true" player=MPC-HC"/> rule since he asked about add-ons or he can specify by protocol to define the rule that applies to items whose (URI) protocol matches; as well as "real" protocols like rtmp, daap, rtv, rtsp XBMC also uses the URI protocol for things like zip, rar etc. Hope the info helps.

Just pointed out that there is a way to do it, the linked Wiki-Article will explain everything in detail so he can figure out everything he needs by himself Smile

I am trying to install the official beta APK, but when I start the installation I get a message stating “Error! Cannot Parse CPU Features”. I then just have an exit box with stops the installation.

My phone is an HTC Desire, which the FAQs suggest should be supported (albeit the earlier versions of Android may not work). The only (probably major!) difference is that I am running the Runneymede AIO Rom (Android version 2.3.5) on a rooted phone with all apps running from SD.

Should I give up now, or is there any way I can get this working please?

It complains about not being to find CSS keys, but the ISO came from DVD Decrypter. I'll work on pastebin.

Actually, the most relevant section would appear to be here. It can't seek to the IFO. I'm not having this issue with this exact file on this exact drive on my Linux machine or my Windows machine, but that's with XBMC 11.
