This patch:

- add Check free memory, and if plenty use full size buffers for reading files

causes sometimes not playing movies.

I have Rpi 256mb.

Ah- you use gpu_mem=100? Can you change it to 128, and try with the patch in place.
Possibly it thinks your board is 512M because you have more than 128M free.
Is that fixes it, I'll reduce the threshold by 28M so it works for your setup.

How does it fail? Does video stall, stop or xbmc restarts?

It's hard to see "add Check free memory, and if plenty use full size buffers for reading files" being responsible. Firstly it should do nothing on 256M board.
Secondly if it allocates larger buffers and it fails, I'd expect the OOM killer and xbmc to die and restart.

Quite sure "add Check free memory, and if plenty use full size buffers for reading files" is responsible?

Without this patch movie play fine on my Rpi 256mb.

fix your problem?


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - Milhouse - 2013-02-20

There's still a playback problem with this latest rbej build - sometimes a file will play once at the first attempt, though more often than not it won't play at all, and then never on subsequent attempts (and nor will any other media play after that first time).

When the file doesn't play, for example by selecting from the recently added list, XBMC remains on the menu screen but with a dark grey background and the playback controls visible across the top of the menu, but the timecode is stuck at 0:00:00. Pause/unpause has no effect (it appears to seek but nothing happens). While it is in this state the CPU is pegged at 100%, and there is no network traffic (the media is accessed over NFS).

Even deleting guisettings.xml completely and rebooting doesn't resolve the situation, so it doesn't seem to be a conflicting settings problem.

Tested on: 512MB Pi, 128MB GPU (also tested 256MB GPU, same result), booting from NFS, media on NFS, 720p GUI.

Here's a debug log captured from boot (with 128MB GPU), failing to play an SD MKV tv show at the first attempt (pastebin).

My advancedsettings.xml (pastebin).

Hope it helps.

Strange. Today with last build my movie plays fine, but one hour ago movie sometimes not play again. Few days ago i set turbo_force=1 in config.txt. Before i always use turbo_force=0 and everything will be fine. Now i return to force_turbo=0 and play fine over 100 times movie (nfs and online). I go test more.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - popcornmix - 2013-02-20

@MillhouseVH
Thanks for report. I notice from log that it decodes a jpeg while starting video playback. Possibly that's an caused by launching from recently added list, and would increase the gpu_mem required.
Does gpu_mem=256M behave any differently?
Is it any more reliably launching from file browser view?

256M behaves the same as 128M.

I also tried from the file browser and experienced similar behaviour as when playing from the recently added list - XBMC stays on same "page" (in this case the list of files), but there is no playback, 100% CPU and no network activity.

It is somewhat unpredictable though, as at one point while in the file browser there was a lot of network activity while it scanned the files (working out they were SD quality etc.), then once it had finished and calmed down, all TV shows were playable (although MKV movies remained unplayable).


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - rbej - 2013-02-20

Only this patches may this issues:

- Fix for stuttery video when seeking before zero

- Handle resolution changes during video stream

- add Both HDMI and analog audio output

Because other patches i remove and compile build again and still sometimes no playing movies.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - Trixster - 2013-02-20

I'm getting the exact same problem as MilHouse with the latest Rbej build.
