Could you try to produce a sample (e.g. 200MB) that shows the problem?


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - rbej - 2013-02-12

I try Wink

Thanks for fix bogomips in firmware and kernel. Works.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - rbej - 2013-02-12

In OpenELEC nightlies the fps reading while playing videos stays at 7~8 fps, the videos play fine with normal frame rate is just the reading that seems wrong.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - rbej - 2013-02-12

Confirm.

It is correct. That is the fps of the GUI. If the GUI isn't changing, you want it to be low. The video will be playing asynchronously at the right framerate.

Oh I see.

Update Frodo Final Version 3

- OpenElec build 13268

- add ass subs patch https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/pull/2206

- add LCDproc SureElec driver

- add patch Videoscanner should not skip sftp/ssh sources https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/pull/2058

- added memory leak patch https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/pull/2208

- new firmware and kernel (11.02.2013) low bogomips is fixed

- add new experimental Network Cache.

Please read this:

https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/pull/1388

No more cachemembuffersize in advenced setting. Please delete it and add this:

<alwaysforcebuffer>true</alwaysforcebuffer>
<freememorycachepercent>5</freememorycachepercent>

1. alwaysforcebuffer: This will force everything ran through dvdplayer to be buffered that would not be normal buffered except Optical Media. This includes SMB, Local Files, OS Network Shares, etc.

2. freememorycachepercent: The amount of free memory to use as buffer size. Please note that of the percentage of free memory used ~75% will be used for forward buffering and ~25% will be used for the back buffer.

This fixed drop framerate and frezzes when play some movies in SMB/NFS network when Ass subs patch is enable.

Please test it.

- Xvdr Addon (12.02.2013)

Please please please can someone add this to the nightlybuilds. I just cant seem to figure out how to do it by compiling for the Pi. It is so needed for us with stuff on a external server and cant compromise.

https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/pull/2058

Please!

I've been wondering if this would be good or bad for Pi users. I think it might be good for network streaming that is borderline working (e.g. wifi).
Would be interested in hearing what is better and worse when alwaysforcebuffer is enabled.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - rbej - 2013-02-13

When force always buffer i not have any issues when ass subs patch is enable.

I think he means when you bring up codec info the last line reads:

W (fps:9.xx. CPU:20.6)

Is that fps a resemblence of the unlaying GUI?!
Because it used to follow the movie output very steadily (or fast etc. 29.97)

If not It's the same here it changed with one of the later builds from movie output fps to 8-9.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - xbs08 - 2013-02-13

@tuxen
That's exactly what i ment.

@rbej
I'm using OpenELEC but would like give your builds a try...
Can I simply copy the necessary files to the SD card (SYSTEM, kernel.img, etc) and boot the RPi?
I'm using a USB 3.0 for storage BTW.
TIA
