Testing audio engine ActiveAE
#1
Today we have merged a new audio engine ActiveAE. We tried to put all we have learned from SoftAE into a new desing. Currently ActiveAE is optional and can be activated by setting environment variable AE_ENGINE=ACTIVE on Linux and Windows systems.

Those are interested in testing, please post you findings here.



ONLY POST IN THIS THREAD IF YOU ARE WILLING TO BE A TESTER, CAN BUILD YOURSELF AND GIVE PROPER FEEDBACK (debug logs, etc)

WINDOWS and LINUX only
.

How to provide you can read that here: Debug Log

Is it only for Linux and Windows? Willing to test, but only running ATV2 and Mac systems.

If I have helped you in any way, please forgive me, it was entirely accidental.

@FernetMenta,

Do you mean setting the OS level environment variable, or by setting this in advancedsettings.xml?

OS level. e.g. on linux: AE_ENGINE=ACTIVE xbmc

or set it in /etc/environment

Was just hopeful.

If I work out (or someone can just tell me) how to add the variable to openelec I will compile some test builds.

OE Gotham builds have this by default.

Not had a chance to test it properly yet but so far so good. Here are some OE Generic master Gotham builds:

OE git 04987647c7
PVR-addons git 5b20fa5ce1
XBMC master git 1fe1224fc57 (I believe PVR is broken in this build)
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1236...r15251.tar

so a newer build:

OE git 04987647c7
PVR-addons git 5b20fa5ce1
XBMC master git c33d66c967

Hi Chgarlie0440,

sorry for the noob question.
i have installed your Build and want to test the activeAE, do i have to enable it or is it already enabled in your build?

cheers

gave ActiveAE a try today. The only thing I noticed so far is that vizualisations seem to be dead - at least on windows. Will do more tests on my HTPC (tested this on my workstation on a clean install)

Same here. Reason seems to be:

void CActiveAEStream::RegisterAudioCallback(IAudioCallback* pCallback)
{
}

FernetMenta, are there any plans or is there a timeline to replace the old audioengine and to use activeae by default?
