RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - vprasinos - 2014-02-24

dvdplayer in all recent builds freezes the picture when ff/rew. Anyone else seeing this?


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - tinnyskillz - 2014-02-24

dvdplayer does that for me as well. mostly when rewinding as opposed to fast forwarding. what i do is pause, and then rewind or fast forward, that seems to work for me. dvdplayer in my honest opinion keeps improving though and is better than omxplayer now.

by the way is there anyone else who is having inconsistent wifi. sometimes after say a reboot, wifi will connect (i can tell right away because the time/clock is correct) but won't load any addons, no weather etc unless there is another reboot. I had it happen once with an ethernet as well.

Not sure about ff/rew but I reported a few pages back that it does this for me when trying to skip forward/backward and as I use this a lot, I'm having to use omxplayer instead for now.

I wonder if it wouldn't be possible and fairly easy to make dvdplayer automatically be used for isos (which are probably always DVD or maybe Blu-ray) or VOB/IFO files (which I think are definitely always DVD), even if the defaultplayer is set to omxplayer?

I'm interested in what ways you find it better?


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - vprasinos - 2014-02-24

dvdplayer is better than omxplayer in playing problematic files (bad timestamps, packed bitstream, etc) but in my case it simply does not ff/rew. I paused and then ff and then unpaused but still no luck. The movie is playing normally but the picture is frozen.

Did this patch get included in the Milhouse builds or was something else changed to fix this problem? I'm using the Feb 21 Milhouse build and no longer get the CEC repeats on my Panasonic Smile

Try:

Code:
<advancedsettings>
  <video>
    <defaultplayer>omxplayer</defaultplayer>
    <defaultdvdplayer>dvdplayer</defaultdvdplayer>
  </video>
</advancedsettings>

Thanks, I'll try that.

this, and (at least for me) navigating the osd menu is more responsive and gives less of a delay than omxplayer. the only big problem i ever had with dvdplayer was youtube vids being upside down but has since been fixed in my testings.Big Grin

I've pushed a fix for a hang when seeking or using trickplay with dvdplayer.
Also fix for bug where dvdplayer would play audio with no video if invoked before any artwork had been displayed (e.g. playback from http without navigating on xbmc).

This looks like something broken on your install.
You could try downloading
https://github.com/Hexxeh/rpi-firmware/raw/master/start_x.elf
https://github.com/Hexxeh/rpi-firmware/raw/master/fixup_x.dat

and replace the ones you have (renaming to start.elf/fixup.dat)

Otherwise you could try a new install.

Sorry, stupid question
can you point the path to both?

Easiest is to plug the sdcard into windows (or other) PC. You will see start.elf and fixup.dat in the directory that shows up.
