Hi jhsrennie,
They vids work fine for me as well on Linux.
The problem is with VTB hardware decoding them on ATV2.

I think davilla looked at it previously..

The hardware video decoder in the ATV2 is having issues with the file. If you disable hardware video decoding then the files will play.
Hi Ned Scott,
Yes, that is the workaround I tell people about. I don't know if you read the entire thread, but the files are actually dumped from rtmp streams, so it's not really a good solution to disable hardware acceleration each time you want to stream these and enable it again when you want play HD content.

It would be nice if XBMC could automatically disable hardware decoding for streams like these, if indeed the ATV2 is not capable of hardware decoding them. Oluf mentioned that the streams work in Eden beta 1.

Also, many users only get audio or audio and a grey screen when trying to play with hardware acceleration enabled on beta 2 and 3.

I don't have an ATV2 so I can't be of much help. I'm the author of the addon though, so I'm the one users complain to first, so I'm just trying to help where I can Smile

Ah, yes, sorry about that.

Moved thread to iOS forum to grab iOS devs attention.
Didn't davilla already do something for this in mainline?
Hi Memphiz
Yes, you are right:
In the late Nighty Builds the same problem was here. (About sept-oct 2011).
Before Eden Beta 1, suddenly all channels was to be seen excellent, included the HD channel. All with VTB enabled!!!
The issue did not change by updating to Beta 1. BUT:
By updating to Beta 2 the problem appears again Sad grey screen with sound.
Off course you could turn off VTB, and it works - but a bad solution No

Still (today) my Son in Law is on the Beta 1 - and here everything is OK

Quotation from a wise man, in the past:
"To be precise. The hardware acceleration chip just pukes on the stream. Only one person in the world might be able to figure this out... maybe 2..."

I think someone has fiddled with the VTB Nod

Thank you for trying, and your great work for xbmc-team Big Grin

do both atv2 have the same ios version? if you downgrade your atv2 to beta1 it starts to work again for you? Don't get me wrong but we have to ensure that its a regression...
The same iOS version(4.4.4) and setup - I have installed both with the same issue.
How to downgrade?
Regards Oluf
Code:
wget http://mirrors.xbmc.org/apt/atv2/deb/org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2_11.0-0~b1_iphoneos-arm.deb
dpkg -i org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2_11.0-0~b1_iphoneos-arm.deb
rm org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2_11.0-0~b1_iphoneos-arm.deb

upgrade again with nitotv or by doing

Code:
wget http://mirrors.xbmc.org/apt/atv2/deb/org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2_11.0-0~b3_iphoneos-arm.deb
dpkg -i org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2_11.0-0~b3_iphoneos-arm.deb
rm org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2_11.0-0~b3_iphoneos-arm.deb
Hi again Memphiz
Bingo - you are my man ...

Downgraded to Beta 1, and Voila all channels were fine again Laugh

Can you use these informations? - or let me know.
Wating to upgrade to Beta 3

Best regards
Oluf
I still haven't upgraded to Beta 2 or 3 since this Danish live TV add-on doesn't work with these to updates.

I have Beta 1 on my apple TV2 and everything works fine. Been testing with Beta2 and 3 on my ipad, and it doesn't work in those versions.

When you are at it it would be great if you isolate the version which made it stop working (beta2 i guess?).
