Well... Not perfect yet, but much much better than ever before!
A problem I noticed with one of the very few discs I tested is this (Die Hard 2):

Startup of DVD->20th Century Fox animation -> Animation of 20th CF logo, airplane in snow, interior of control tower ->Static menu with options to 'play movie' or 'select scene' (=Main Menu) -> Choose 'select scene' -> Animation while going to other monitor in control tower (I call this animation A) -> Static menu to choose scene or go back to main menu -> Choose go back to main menu -> Back in main menu.

Everything is fine, until we are back in the main menu. Now using the cursor keys to go from one option to the next responds very slow (0-5s). Also, when choosing again to go to the scene selection menu, the animation A is played back very choppy. Menu navigation in the scene selection menu is very slow as well now.

It seems as if cpu-load suddenly gets very high at some point. Stopping the dvd and restarting it solves it, but doing the sequence described above make the thing go very slow again, so the problem is reproducable. While checking with top command, it doesn't seem to be CPU-load...

https://www.dropbox.com/s/9hs5bbnt9m9w5c...rd%202.zip (47MB) to download the dvd (without the main movie, which is stripped out with Vobblanker)

Thanks for this outstanding piece of work!

I just signed up to say thanks for your outstanding work on this. The provided tarballs and comprehensive instructions make installing the test builds incredibly easy. On the latest official raspbmc build, I was having trouble with 24-bit flac playback and random spontaneous reboots (among other minor things), and since I started using these, I've had no problems. As a bonus, there are several areas with a notable performance increase (that patch the other day that speeds up re-entering directories is awesome).

So, thanks so much for all of your efforts! I'd like to buy you a beer sometime. 8)

Now that playing DVD rips, including menus, is working (thanks again!), can I request a related fix: resume of video playback after stop, rather than restarting from the beginning?

I play ripped DVD files stored on an SMB share. If, while watching, I stop playback and then play the same movie again, playback starts at the beginning of the "disc" rather than resuming from where I left off.

Thanks.

Thanks for sample file. I'm able to reproduce the slowdown.
CPU is actually low (~20%) when it goes slow.
No ideas yet, but I'll investigate.

Update firmware

To update firmware, download firmware files and copy them to the vfat partition on your SD (/boot).

Latest official firmware from master tree
start_x.elf
fixup_x.dat

I did this to get rid of upside down with dvdplayer, but what is the next step?
I don´t know if the firmares are updated, and the video is still upside down. Is it supposed to work just by putting the files in /boot ? I did so with wget...

Thanks!

Did you reboot?

You can check firmware version with 'vcgencmd version', it should be:

version 45d99f51ad03ec95e6bd087065de3bc825bfce33 (clean) (release)

Edit:
Cannot write the complete version number, the forum changes it...

I've startet with a fresh installation over network (win32-installer) raspbmc on Windows, put this files directly on fat32 Partition and start with them on Raspberry.
Fresh settings, new System, new Firmware and the World is your Friend :-)

I still see most DVDs upside-down with the latest firmware, I have checked that I have <deinterlacemode>0</deinterlacemode> in guisettings.xml too. One DVD however worked, and indeed that was very good.

Unfortunately, KEY_[0-9] don't work in live TV mode anymore, neither from keyboard nor from lirc. Has anyone else seen this? I need to stay with the January 7 build because of this bug, but I will bisect it.

You need latest xbmc and latest firmware, otherwise dvdplayer will be upside down.

I do have latest firmware and latest xbmc (20140213-nc3-2).

Regarding the numeric keys, I found the culprit and I'm opening a pull request on xbmc.

That is not the newest.

That is not the latest and does not include the fix.
This is the latest: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid...pid1627917

Oops, sorry for the noise---everything works now! advancedsettings.xml is being shipped with omxplayer as the defaultplayer and defaultdvdplayer, but I changed it to dvdplayer without breaking anything.

Regarding the remote control, I fixed my lircd.conf to produce "numeric pad" keys and also created https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/pull/4000 with the XBMC fix.

Hi miappa,
Now I got another problem.
When I tried to install the skin plugin, Raspberry crashed.
You can test this plugin here:

Thanks.
