OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 3 (Kodi 14.0)

Odd, looks like the splash animation video is hanging which prevents Kodi from starting up completely (it's waiting for the splash video to finish, before changing resolution).

I'm not sure what the following will prove, but can you run the following commands with build #1201 (these commands won't work with #1130):
Code:
touch /storage/.config/splash.disable
sync; reboot

When the Pi restarts, the splash video should no longer appear and Kodi should start normally.

Now try running the splash video manually, this time without Kodi:
Code:
systemctl stop kodi
kodi-splash.sh

Does the video still hang?

With which tool can I make my own splash animation?
Adobe Premiere or after effects or something from magix?

Not really sure, but I guess anything capable of creating a file with the format described by popcornmix here should be able to do the job.

Copy your file to /storage/.cache/splash.h264, then you can use "systemctl stop kodi" and "kodi-splash.sh" to repeatedly test playback.

No, video does not hang.

Does the splash video hang every time at startup, or only some of the time? Does it stop hanging if you disable your overclock ("rm /storage/.config/splash.disable" to re-enable startup splash video)?

It does every time, also without overclock.

Thanks

I converted with this (use ffmpeg if you don't have avconv)
Code:
avconv -i Logo_Kodi_Animation_1_720p_samfisher.mp4 -vcodec copy -bsf h264_mp4toannexb splash.h264

I get this screen and no Kodi GUI:

I did see a hang on splash playback when the video was launched earlier in the boot process, but with autoboot.sh or Milhouse's splash service I don't see the hang.
I guess there may be a race condition between video playing and kodi (or some other systemd service) starting.

I'll try to reproduce the hang conditions I had to investigate.
I got a hang the first time I rebooted and had the animated screen. Rebooted a few times and haven't seen that happen since. Will try a few more times today.
Good evening. Is there any way to completely disable the animated splash screen?
Thanks
Just upgraded to #1201 on R-Pi - running it for an hour or so - everything seems OK. Splash runs smoothly - really nice touch Smile Starting LiveTV took a little bit longer for a channel list to show-up... Still having problems playing HD stream with enabled subtitles.

Another thing that i've noticed in a kodi.log (during Kodi startup period) is (few more lines):

Don't think this is "normal"...

You shouldn't use nightlies blindly. At least take the effort to read-up about what you are getting yourself into. Milhouse and popcornmix are both doing a tremendous and outstanding job of keeping us informed.
It's not as if this change was introduced ages ago and this is an extremely active thread either.

What's not normal, the message about "unsupported ffmpeg version"? That's totally normal for OpenELEC which uses it's own "external" build of ffmpeg rather than the ffmpeg version normally included with Kodi.

Read the build #1201 release note.

Didn't know that one. Thanks...

Thank you as always, Milhouse


@Forage: "Read the build #1201 release note." was the answer. Your words just try to make you seem important and create conflict. If you don't have anything to say it's better that you say nothing.
