RaspBMC Kodi/XBMC test builds
@carmenm
Use Raspbmc settings to edit config.txt.
If you edit it manually it will revert to whatever Raspbmc settings thinks it should be once you have used the addon.

I don´t know if I am missing something here, but a new build from nc3 and I am certain that I don´t have hw acceleration for dvdplayer.

xbmc.log when playing a video?

Here you go: http://pastebin.com/CirpEs66
Played a mkv (720p) and a iso.

Build from: https://github.com/miappa/xbmc/commits/nc3

DVDPlayer behaves similar to previous builds (SD content ok if SD enough).

You don't have hardware decode for OpenMax enabled. You need "--enable-openmax" added to configure options.

Ah, completely missed that.
Thanks!

Updated Gotham build (20 Jan), clone from newclock3 branch with one extra PR.

This is a test build with dvdplayer as default player, now with hardware acceleration.
It should improve DVD menus and playback, but it might behave differently for different content.

A word from popcornmix:
Quote:In my testing it appeared pretty responsive in starting/stopping/seeking compared to omxplayer which requires more buffering on GPU.
It is a little less efficient in CPU than omxplayer, but should play all 720p content, and modest 1080p content (no raw Blu-Rays).
It should work better with DVD images, including menus.
It may well work better with live TV issues (not tested by me so far).
If you have any annoying behaviour with subtitles/streaming/buffering/seeking/trickplay etc then it may behave differently.

Just try playing your normal content with dvdplayer, and report back what seems better or worse compared to omxplayer.

Depending on this testing we make make dvdplayer the default player in the future, and have omxplayer as an optional player for 1080p content.

Please note that I have set DVDPlayer as default video and dvd player.
To compare with omxplayer you can use context menu and ’Play using…’.
See below how to change default player back to omxplayer in advancedsettings.xml.

Info:
• XBMC master from Jan 20 (except this commit as I don´t know if it might interfere with testing)
• DVDPlayer with hardware acceleration
• DVDPlayer set as default player (see below how to change this)
• Fix for buffermode now in XBMC master
Tamland´s PR for hls/https streams

Recommendations:
• Libdvdcss (see post #1), this might be required
• Dec update or latest firmware from master (see post #1)
• Fresh guisettings.xml if you come from Frodo or old Gotham
• Recheck all settings after install

To get passthrough with dvdplayer (and paplayer), add the following to config.txt:
Code:
no_hdmi_resample=1
hdmi_stream_channels=1
Make sure that Speaker layout is set to 2.0 (passthrough is still 5.1).

To install, SSH to Pi:
Code:
cd .upgrade
wget -O xbmc-13-20140120-nc3-dvdpl.tar.gz http://goo.gl/zgKJNv --no-check-certificate
mkdir -p xbmc-13-20140120-nc3-dvdpl
tar -xzf xbmc-13-20140120-nc3-dvdpl.tar.gz -C xbmc-13-20140120-nc3-dvdpl
cd xbmc-13-20140120-nc3-dvdpl/xbmc-bcm/xbmc-bin/lib/xbmc/system
cp /usr/local/lib/libdvdcss.so.2.1.0 .
ln -sf libdvdcss.so.2.1.0 libdvdcss.so.2
ln -sf libdvdcss.so.2 libdvdcss.so
Activate new build in "Raspbmc Settings/Nightly…/Switch…”, choose new build + restart XBMC.

You can still use omxplayer for video either through context menu or by changing the default player in advancedsettings.xml:
Code:
<video>
  <defaultplayer>omxplayer</defaultplayer>
  <defaultdvdplayer>omxplayer</defaultdvdplayer>
</video>

Last night I tested last build with DVDPlayer on a lot of content.
Playback seems to be quite good on most of my content.

But, skipping/seeking was not very good.

* Every time I skipped/seeked (no matter short or long) it took some time before it settled, but when it did audio/video sync was not ok.
It was only a very small "unsync", but it was clearly there.

* If I skipped a lot (forward and back several times) it somewhat broke playback. Sound seemed to follow the skipping while video sooner or later got stuck on the same place with a lot of stutter (did not fix itself even when waiting for a while).

* Stopping and resuming fixed both of the above.

I have played around with it some more today after a reboot and cannot reproduce it other than some unsyncing which is more distinct on HD content.
The debug log grew to 1,7 MB fast when skipping, the repeating line is:
Code:
18:18:56 80997.039062 T:2868016192   DEBUG: CheckPlayerInit - dropping packet type:1 dts:1759220000.000000 to get to start point at 1760842000.000000

Had to cut the log in 3 parts:
Edit: gahh... they were to big, only managed to get the last part. Let me know if the log is necessary...
log3


I am also a little interested in this PR...

Also, wasn´t this fixed a while back?

@miappa, have you noticed that the last subtitle remains on screen even after the dialog has finished?

No, have not seen that.
I have played around with both dvdplayer and omxplayer and I have subtitles on pretty much all content.
Will try some more tonight and see if I can reproduce.
External .srt?
Reply
yes.
thanks.

Will try with dvdplayer

See here for diff against master.

Some info:
• XBMC master from Jan 22
• OMXPlayer back as default player
• DVDPlayer with hardware acceleration (optional player)
• Several fixes for DVDPlayer (subtitles/seeking etc.)
• Fix for season art (might help Amber/skin.widget users)

Recommendations:
• Libdvdcss (see post #1), this might be required
• Dec update or latest firmware from master (see post #1)
• Fresh guisettings.xml if you come from Frodo or old Gotham
• Recheck all settings after install

For DVDPlayer testers, see post #1 (Alternative players).

Did all of the above except "Fresh guisettings.xml if you come from Frodo or old Gotham".
(I'm coming from the latest stable release.)

My UI is completely bogged, so I guess I need to do this, but I don't understand what I exactly need to do with guisettings.xml or where I can find it. Searching in the thread didn't do anything since guisettings is mentioned a lot under recommendations. Any help?
Reply
Hello Robert-Jon,

Guisettings.xml is in /home/pi/.xbmc/userdata.
I recommend that you delete it and restart XBMC, this "should" settle it.

To do this via SSH:
Code:
sudo initctl stop xbmc
sudo rm /home/pi/.xbmc/userdata/guisettings.xml
sudo initctl start xbmc
NB! This will revert any gui- and/or system settings to default, so you need to recheck/set all your settings again. But it might be necessary.
Reply
Thanks! That worked.

As could be expected, it also reset all my UI settings in my release build.
I'm looking to use release for day to day use and nightly only for when I'm using a specific add-on that needs Gotham.

Would I be correct in saying I could back-up my guisettings for both, and restore whichever I want to use before switching builds?
