re-encoded the 2 and a half men file to AAC and its working perfectly. I think it's an encoding problem.
@kataiba, could you please let me know what program and what parameters you used for re-encoding?


I checked the audio levels on the Two and a half men clip and its not even near clipping (0dB), I get peaks that are a highest -6dB mostly around -12dB. I also extracted the AC3 and played it as audio and had the same problems. Then when comparing files that work and file that has distorted audio I found something interesting, the difference between the files are the "<OverallBitRate_Mode_String>" and "<BitRate_Mode_String>", the working has CBR and the non working has Constant. Then the working has "<BitDepth_String>" 16bit3 and the non working 16 bits. So it might be that the player does not really know what to do?

<track type="General">
<Format_Info>Audio Coding 3</Format_Info>
<FileSize_String>58.8 MiB</FileSize_String>
<Duration_String>21mn 24s</Duration_String>
<OverallBitRate_String>384 Kbps</OverallBitRate_String>

<track type="Audio">
<Format_Info>Audio Coding 3</Format_Info>
<Format_Settings_ModeExtension>CM (complete main)</Format_Settings_ModeExtension>
<Duration_String>21mn 24s</Duration_String>
<BitRate_String>384 Kbps</BitRate_String>
<Channel_s__String>6 channels</Channel_s__String>
<ChannelPositions>Front: L C R, Side: L R, LFE</ChannelPositions>
<SamplingRate_String>48.0 KHz</SamplingRate_String>
<BitDepth_String>16 bits</BitDepth_String>
<StreamSize_String>58.8 MiB (100%)</StreamSize_String>
I'm having this problem too with Raspbmc (an old version and with the new version)

So Its XBMC.

Maybe XBMC is not handling this kind/method of encoding very well.

@mcarni i used Freemake Video Converter. Freeware. http://www.freemake.com/downloads/. Just convert to mkv leave everything as original just audio codec to AAC
nickehallgren, shouldn't be better to open a issue at XBMC github or at XBMC specific forum?
Its no OpenElec neither Raspbmc.

Yes I see that now, and I have also posted it at XBMC github now

Can you post the link please? Has anyone replied yet?

Can you do a test with openelec for me please?
I just saw Haven (720p web-dl version) and at 21:37 the player closes and go back to library and I cant go back to the saved point. I have to restart the video and go to 21:40 to continue to play.
Can you try to reproduce this? I think is something with XBMC player.

I posted it here:

But it got closed since it shouldn't have been posted there at all:

"no issue reports on github
use the forum"

So I have to post it on the forum soon...

Haven S03E04 I assume? I'll try it and post back

UPDATE: Did not stop (played it from 21:00 to 22:45) with OpenElec (build r12066)

Thanks, I tried with mencoder since I was looking for a command line way of re-encoding...I made a mess out of the file... so I might look into the software you suggested...


Im using an old build. Will try with with a new build.
On build r12015 CEC was working pretty well with LG TVs. If you changed input and then back to the R-Pi, it would resume function if you switch CEC 'simplink' off/on. Previous to that it was impossible to get CEC working again after the tvs input had been changed without rebooting.

This problem has returned with r10266.
if that build is using libCEC 1.9.1, known issue and i'm working on a fix. if it's using another version, please pastebin a debug log.

Should be interesting to see if the GUI upsampling of 720p to 1080p is still required with the 512MB version of the Model B.
