DSPlayer (DirectShow Player for XBMC) Frodo build available

Mylene Farmer - Live a Bercy.mkv
Pink - Funhouse Tour.avi
Shakira - Live from Paris.(2011).mp4
Take That - Progress Live.mp4
I scanned the files using ConcertDB scraper. Although, it appeared that all videos were recognized correctly, results were the following:
- 2 items were displayed without names.
- 1 Items contained no data on "Info" page, though it had a correct poster.
- None of the items had fanart, though art chooser displayed both correct posters and fanarts for all videos.

Bottom line: there seems to be some problems with displaying music videos in XBMC that are not connected with dsplayer.
Any comments are welcomed.

I have 0 issues with the original xbmc for musicvideos
I do have them with dsplayer

Hi Erverybody,

first of all I appreciate the great work of the dsplayer development very much since I love XBMC and need ds codecs to get everything working according to my needs. So far my configuration is complete except the playback of BD ISO content with DSPlayer. Neither avsplitter nor lav codecs seem to get this job done. Am I right:-( or is there a possibility?

Cheers

By defauld ISOs are assigned to DVDplayer, so you need to add a proper rule in \userdata\playercorefactory.xml
Code:
<rule filetypes="iso" player="dsplayer" />

That is good to know, but how am I supposed to catch those issues and explain them to Eduard K.? I don't watch music videos in XBMC, I don't have them, and my quick test with absolutely randomly picked titles revealed serious issues in the official Frodo release, not in DSplayer.

Depends. It works with http-streams via "File Source (URL)" {E436EBB6-524F-11CE-9F53-0020AF0BA770} DirectShow source filter. Unfortunately, this is the only DirectShow filter for network streams, so other types of streams are not supported because simply there is no DirectShow filter to handle them.

For http-streams you can use the following rules:
filtersconfig.xml
Code:
<filter name="urlsource" type="source">
  <guid>{E436EBB6-524F-11CE-9F53-0020AF0BA770}</guid>    
  <osdname>URL Source</osdname>
</filter>
mediasconfig.xml
Code:
<rule protocols="http">
  <source filter="urlsource" />
  <splitter filter="avsplitter" />
  <video filter="lavvideodec" />
   <audio filter="lavaudiodec" />
</rule>
Those are only examples, you can use your own audio/video filters.
I have a suspicion that File Source (URL) probably supports mms and rtsp streams too, but it is unconfirmed.

i also want to use dsplayer with live tv but i dont have the time to test this at the moment. i thought pvr will work with dsplayer because: http://git.avmedia.su/git/?p=xbmc.git;a=...69cdf92455

did any one get live tv with dsplayer to work?

Once again: it depends. Live TV is too generic concept. DSplayer works with IPTV via http-streams using PVR Demo or IPTV Simple PVR clients. The latter has been developed by another Russian guy and allows to watch IPTV via LiveTV interface.
As for streams from real TV-backends, like Mediaportal or TVheadend, I'm afraid, there is no DS filter to handle them. This is not a DSplayer limitation, this is a limitation of current DirectShow implementation.

Probably the same way as it works for DVDplayer: it handles streams internally, without using DirectShow source/splitters. I'm glad to be mistaken, but so far I know the only DS filter which handles streams - File Source (URL) and it is limited to http-streams.
If somebody shows me a DirectShow source filter which is able to handle other types of streams, including PVR, I will be grateful.

Thanks for the answer Roman but this is already configured properly. Meanwhile I found the culprit. When I start BD ISOs the ReclockHelper.dll hangs and XBMC gets a time out. When I end the dll with the task manager XBMC proceeds to the menu slection and the BD starts to play after selection a title. Any suggestions why reclock behaves like this only with BD ISOs?

The second issue which came up is stopping mkv videos which are packed in rar. Using AV Splitter with LAV video codecs in the mediaconfig.xml does start these files correctly but once I push the stop button XMBC chrashes. This is reproducible almost every time I try to play rared mkv files. Am I the only one where this happens or is it a bug? I use the frodo version from the 2nd of Feb. in the first post of this thread.

Cheers

I don't use reclock, so no idea.

Maybe a bug, maybe not. Anyway, this is a very weird use case. Why do you pack your videos in RAR anyway? Common compression algorithms (ZIP, RAR, LZW etc.) do not work on files which are already compressed with any type of multimedia compression (mp3, mpeg, xvid, h264 etc.), thus providing absolutely no compression benefits on such files.

If you keep nagging me every day, I'll add you to my ignore list, and that will be the end of story. If you haven't noticed, this is not a commercial product, and this topic is not a paid support line with response time set in a SLA, so I post in this topic only when I have time and (most importantly) desire to do so. Period.
