Is this necessary?
Where is this? I believe not specifying the player will result in dvdplayer being used which is correct.

xbmc / cores / omxplayer / omxplayer_advancedsettings.xml

Thanks a lot for the info.

Should be harmless, but I guess that fiile could be removed as the defaults are fine.

What about dual audio for music etc.? Is there a way to choose OMX for music?
Could also affect some internet streams and airplay etc. where OMX is the only working player.

Updated Helix build, Kodi/XBMC master from Sep 05 + newclock4 commits.

Kodi/XBMC Master:
Master changelog

Newclock4 additions:
• Same as last build, though several commits has gone into Kodi master

GPU firmware from Sep 04 included:
• Add config option dpi_output_format to change output format
• Several commits, see here

Some additional info:
OMXPlayer is now ”embedded” in DVDPlayer. You now have settings within the GUI to enable/disable different features (under Settings - Video - Acceleration):

• Select omxplayer or dvdplayer automatically
This will make Kodi choose which player to use. OMX (if enabled) will be default except for unsupported formats and DVD´s/ISO´s where DVDPlayer will be used.

• Allow hardware acceleration (OMXPlayer)
Enables OMXPlayer

• Allow hardware acceleration (OpenMax)
Enables DVDPlayer with HW acceleration

To see what player being used, bring up codec info when playing a video:
omx-h264 = omxplayer
mmal-h264 = dvdplayer with hardware acceleration
ff-h264 = dvdplayer withouth acceleration

Any settings in advancedsettings.xml regarding players should be removed.
Also, if you have a custom playercorefactory.xml in your userdata you should edit it (remove anything regarding OMX and DVDPlayer) or remove the file.

To install Kodi/XBMC build, SSH to Pi:
Code:
wget -O kodi-14-20140905-nc4.tar.gz http://goo.gl/2uVfgs --no-check-certificate
pv kodi-14-20140905-nc4.tar.gz | tar xzf - -C /home/pi/.upgrade
sudo cp /home/pi/.upgrade/kodi-14-20140905-nc4/{fixup_x.dat,start_x.elf} /boot
ln -sfn /home/pi/.upgrade/kodi-14-20140905-nc4/xbmc-bcm /home/pi/.xbmc-current
sudo reboot

Well dual audio for Pi sink is high on my list and will hopefully be supported soon.

I think if you choose dvdplayer as the default audio player, and enable "omxplayer" acceleration, then I believe you will get dual audio supported for audio (not tested this yet).

I tested it on my RPI and playing HD content with dvdplayer is not so good. It seem to have some missed frames (300 frames in 2 minutes for 1080p at 24 frame per second).

The HD content is on my NAS mounted by NFS on system level (fstab)

Do you mean that you actually use DVDPlayer or do you use stock settings regarding video acceleration?
If you actually use DVDPlayer, may I ask why?
Stock settings (all acceleration options enabled) will use OMXPlayer unless you are talking about DVD´s etc.

If you use OMXPlayer;
I have almost only HD content and I don´t see any issues regarding frame drops.
Just to be certain, can you start with a fresh userdata (rename .xbmc folder) and test, this just in case there are any settings or other stuff that are causing it.

Also, as always, a debug log will always help.

Edit: Ah, I see why you want DVDPlayer, USB audio right?
Have you checked CPU usage?
I just tested DVDPlayer for HD content and it seems fine here, so debug log and media info might help. But first, try with a fresh .xbmc folder.

I use Dvdplayer for my HiFiBerry Digi, else I won't have any sound on optical output.
Rignt now, I've done a roll back to last nc3 release with omxplayer as default, I'm playing a movie. I'll do this after Smile

This is always the case with test builds, sooner or later addons will be incompatible.
You probably need to talk to the addon devs to update their addons for Helix, and the specific addon you want help with now is not allowed to be discussed here as it it most definitely includes piracy content.

Same goes with skins, if you want best compatibility stick with Confluence.
There are at least a few of other skins that work with Helix though, the ones I know are:
Back Glass Nova
Conq
Nebula
And I know that thedeadman is working on a Helix version of Maximinimalism.

Regarding PVR, what addon are you using?
Anyone else having problems with PVR?

It's going worse because xbmc restart after 10 sec of HD movie with dvdplayer. I tried 3 times and 3 times the same behavior...

there are some logs but it really stop like this.

edit : at the forth test, it froze and nothing can go out of this situation else reboot xbmc.
there are logs case logs

Are you using a remote app (android or iOS)?
If so, disable the web server and use something else to control Kodi and test again.

Also, do you have "Extract thumbnails and video information" enabled?
If so, disable it (you find it in Settings - Video - File lists).

I use android and windows phone app for controling it and the thumbnails are disabled.

I'll test with webservice disabled soon and report informations.

• Fix wrongly used CFile::Exists() for directories instead of CDirectory::Exists()
• [posix] Implement new PosixFile (alternative)

GPU firmware from Sep 10 included:
• Add config option hdmi_blanking to allow hdmi output to be disabled when framebuffer is blanked
• Keep built files out of source tree to avoid tainted builds

I did the upgrade and after reboot nobody (no route to host) >.< . I'm not at home, I'll see that this evening when I'll be back at home.
