Last time I tried 3D with a regular OpenElec image, subtitles were not correctly displayed. Would it be expectable to have it fixed in this rbej release?


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - rbej - 2013-01-12

My new custom build.

http://www.mediafire.com/?10456ccz13ard

- OpenElec build r12837
- Xbmc build RC3 (10.01.2013)
- Special Rpi kernel 3.6.y (09.01.2013)
- Rpi firmware (09.01.2013)
- Pvr Addon (10.01.2013)
- Xvdr Addon (11.01.2013)
- Gpu memory set to 100mb on default (fix kernal killing Xbmc task on Rpi 256mb board)
- Memory cache set to 2621440 on default

Update Instruction:

http://openelec.tv/installation/updating

Set gpu_mem=100 in config.txt and cachemembuffersize to 2621440 in advencedsettings.

or clean install:

RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - Wanderlei - 2013-01-12

I get got buffering/stuttering with a certain xvid file on r12669 (1080p GUI), tried r12837 (official) and it was even worse every 15 seconds it would buffer.

Tried running some x264 encodes with much larger bitrate and no buffering.

Is there problems with xvid playback?

What's the mediainfo for the file?

I believe it will work correctly with a 3D TV. I'll check the code path of 3D movie on non-3D TV.

Can you test (updated):
https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/pull/2041

Should fix 3D modes on 2D TV.

Working perfect!!.

thank you for this.. I downloaded it and tried it on my 256MB Pi and we watched about 6 different 720p and 1080p videos last night with success - though I forgot to chance the cachemem setting.


A couple of observations - no idea if these are general issue or build specific though sorry:

- at the end of one movie when I fast forwarded through the credits (I suspected there was after credits video) that the audio playback was looping and playing at weird speeds even when the video was playing back at the correct 1X speed. just something minor.

- CPU usage was always around 90% (I was playing from a USB HDD, if that makes any difference for USB polling etc.)

I'm not interested in Subtitles as much as I'm interested in getting the output from the various "plugins" (say YouTube, et al) to produce readable results and show "foreign" characters properly.

In passing, I've posed a number of other questions - any further insights ? Why is openelec's arial.ttf SO large yet missing lots of glyphs ?

Thanks.

File plays fine with VLC and MPC on PC.

Plays fine with WMC over same network.

All other files I have tried on R-Pi even with much higher bitrates dont constantly buffer/stutter.

Can you produce a cut down sample (e.g. 200MB) that exhibits the problem and post it somewhere (e.g. On Dropbox).



RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - Wanderlei - 2013-01-13

Here is a link,

https://www.dropbox.com/s/srp5k8i4iupd59o/test.avi

I notice this file would also do that thing if you use the skip ahead function, it would buffer like people were talking about 5 or so pages back. (Also does this when you initially starting it.)

I put it on a flash drive and plugged in to the R-Pi and seems to play OK like that. It only appears to be problematic when playing via network share (smb windows). It really confuses me because files with with much larger bitrate play fine (5000kbps 720p and 10000kbps+ 1080p) never buffers or stutters. I really dont think it is a through put or stability issue with the network.

Sorry I don't have any insights into this. My interest when investigating fonts was for subtitles. I haven't looked further to see if the interface was using them. Perhaps this might help you: http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=HOW-TO:Add_a_new_true_type_font_to_the_skin

As for the .ttf size -- my guess would be compression (assuming .ttf supports some type of compression) or perhaps it has glyphs you weren't looking at or perhaps multiple variations (bold/italic) that duplicate existing glyphs?

This played okay for me over nfs network.

What about if you skip, does this cause buffering?

With xvid/avi they buffer when skipping (pretty sure they didnt use to) but all x246/mp4/mkv files will skip with no buffering.
(Page 74 a few other people say they notice buffering when skipping)
