I'll try using DVDPlayer later and report back.

My previous build was 12.2 Frodo so I can not say which Gotham build last worked.

If you have a video that used to play well and doesn't now, can you upload a sample (e.g. 200MB) of the video (e.g. to google drive or dropbox) and I'll look into it.

Hi Miappa
I've noticed a strange issue with my sd install of the last few builds.
When playing video content (hd mkv) the Tv show or film will stop before the end.

The last 2 shows stopped at 23mins (40 min episodes)

How do I go about finding the problem. . Any ideas?

Watching via nfs ( share and mounted have same issue) from my NAS

Cheers

I would try to reboot all devices before trying to debug anything.

I have personally seen such behavior in the past (on several platforms), but every time it has been some network/NAS issue (e.g when NAS has been running for months without a reboot or router behaving weird) rather than a regression in software.
Rebooting everything has helped pretty much every time. What I have seen in the log is a read error either from NFS or from local mount.

Try to reboot everything (server/nas/router/pi/computer/modem etc.).
If you can reproduce it after that, a debug log + syslog might show something.

Thanks miappa
I think it's only an issue on my sd install I've not yet seen it in my usb install.
I'll reboot the lot and see what happens. . I'm thinking it could be router based because it's only effecting one pi.
Cheers

If you followed the instruction in post#1 how to update firmware via SSH, please do it again.
I accidentally included '_new' in the file name as I wanted to check the shortened URL (to compare file size) so you probably have several firmware files with wrong name in /boot.

I have updated this now though so should work.

I actually used ftp and transferred the downloads that were provided. I'll do it again with ssh just In case, I'll upload a sample but as I said it's all h246 mkv files xvid for instance works fine. I tried DVD player but the center channel audio was missing and image was upside down.

Unless you have enabled root access you cannot copy those files via SFTP, and I am not even sure you can do it at all via FTP.
Use SSH (with sudo) or put the SD card in your computer and copy the files.
And your problem sounds like old firmware, I would be very surprised if it were something else (jumping OMXPlayer and upside-down DVDPlayer).

Edit: And to make sure you are on correct build and firmware, see: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid...pid1637859

I've pushed a commit to newclock3 that fixes the white noise problem when using hifiberry sound card. Seems to work okay now.

I unlocked root access via SSH. All you have to do is put in the sudo passwd root make a password, use that password with the user name root. but i'll do it again just in case.

It seems to work now, i updated the firmare via ssh.


But i did check the files inside /boot and they are the exact files that have been linked in post# 1
I also checked the file size of the fix and start files in SSH vs those linked for download. They are different.

SSH fix = 8821 bytes start = 3,502,856 bytes

Linked fix = 8819 bytes start = 3,502,696 bytes

They are the exact same links (identical) but firmware was updated yesterday.
The update is unrelated to what you experienced though so you had old firmware, but it might explain the different file sizes.
But, depending on how you check it it varies.

Use 'vcgencmd version' to check firmware version, it´s the only proper way to check it.

Updated Gotham build, identical to last build with one commit for HiFiBerry:
• Fix for white noise problem when using hifiberry sound card

Firmware from 26th of Feb recommended.
Firmware update, recommendations and additional testing (DVDPlayer etc.), see post #1

To install XBMC build, SSH to Pi:
Code:
cd .upgrade
wget -O xbmc-13-20140227-nc3.tar.gz http://goo.gl/uDkM38 --no-check-certificate
mkdir -p xbmc-13-20140227-nc3
pv xbmc-13-20140227-nc3.tar.gz | tar xzf - -C xbmc-13-20140227-nc3
cd xbmc-13-20140227-nc3/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.


@popcornmix,
I did see this: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid...pid1638543
If there is anything else that needs to be done to get hifiberry working (rpi-update?), please comment.

Yes, you will need to have the hifiberry working with alsa (e.g. aplay working).
Running rpi-update and inserting the linked modules in /etc/modules should do it.
