Yes, passthrough works in the ouya build. DTS/DD5.1 (and not stereo) via TOSLink (and HDMI)

Testing a 480 file and a 1080 file...
12.3.3 runs great, 12.4.2 was unwatchable. Will try 12.3.4 now

Both 12.3.4 and 12.4.2 suffered terrible stuttering for both files.

I assume the released 12.3.3 is commit 47e96e64098bbcc8fd84bcc095ff505259e85af9, and 12.4.0 is commit 91e2b1b36c1c63f2993da6ef045957404d858029? The history is somewhat complicated by that big rebase inbetween. I can try bisecting it tonight, if noone has nailed it down by then.
You cannot bisect. I did a quite stupid force push...

I have been trying this and have been unsuccessful (using TOSlink as I don't have a HDMI receiver) to get DTS or DD to passthrough

Have you been setting "dolby digital" on the fire tv settings for anything - does this matter ?

Have you been setting the setting to "optical out" on the ouya build or doing something else?

Thanks in advance

I have this option set on the fire:

Home > Settings > System > Audio > Dolby Digital output > Dolby Digital Plus over Optical

In XBMC for Ouya I have

System > System > Audio Output >
Optical Coax
Speaker 5.1
Dolby Digital Ac3 Receiver
DTS receiver
Audio output device: android, audiotrack

SPMC 12.3.4 ( http://filez.semperpax.com/cyi80 )
SPMC 12.4.2 ( http://filez.semperpax.com/crjtv )

I want to help with testing, so gave SPMC 12.4.1 a test first, to make sure I could duplicate the stuttering/crashing issues people mention; however, everything is working fine for me with several movie tests. If it matters, I already had XBMC Ouya installed, but I have been assuming SPMC would be completely isolated from that. I left SPMC's settings on their defaults.

Can someone help me reproduce the issues w/ 12.4.1 so that I can test 12.3.4 and 12.4.2? Maybe it's the type of videos I'm playing? Or maybe some enabling/disabling of libstagefright/mediacodec (speaking of, how are these enabled/disabled?)?

Also, should I uninstall any previous version of SPMC before trying a different one, and if so, can I keep my data (i.e. via "adb uninstall -k")? It would be nice to avoid having to re-add video folders for each test, but obviously want to give a proper test.

Try one of the top three files from here: http://www.auby.no/files/video_tests/

Also are you testing with stereo audio or 5.1?

I tested the top three files you suggested, but all of them have stuttering issues (Monsters being the worst). I'm testing with 5.1 audio over HDMI. I'm reading videos over network from Samba.

I also tested these videos on SMPC 12.3.3, 12.3.4, 12.4.1, 12.4.2, and I can't see a difference between the quality of each version (e.g. Monster video's audio isn't synced w/ stuttering video)
hello,
how i add new repository for video add on
I got the Ortek MCE Remote mentioned earlier in this thread to replace my elderly 1st gen MCE IR/remote. It mostly works, but some submenu functions are missing. Does anyone have a working keymap?

Please do tests in plain stereo, no passthrough, both in the Fire and in XBMC. One problem at a time...
Use only "Monster" as a test file. It's the most "standard".

Thanks. That's handy for the firetv functions.

For the XBMC keymap I found:

It kind of works, but some of the keyboard functions like Activate.Windows and context menu seem to be nonfunctional. I'm running the ouya build.

Okay, just to confirm, I'm using Monsters downloaded from http://www.auby.no/files/video_tests/

When I play this on Fire TV with SMPC 12.3.3 using 2.0 stereo, the video cannot keep up with the audio. For others who have no problem with 12.3.3, does this Monsters file work okay for you?

Note: I tried playing the Monsters file both over ethernet and from locally on Fire TV (/storage/emulated/legacy/). I also verified the Monsters file plays fine on an older Atom PC running Frodo XBMC over network.
(2014-04-09, 18:33)crackd Wrote: Regarding working USB keyboard/mice combos, I verified my IOGEAR (model GKM561R) works. Although Shift and Caplock didn't work when I was entering in my video directories to XBMC (Ouya 12.3.2); is this unique to my keyboard or a common issue w/ all USB keyboards? Do I simply need to map the keys?

FWIW, on Ouya 12.3.2, I got a *small* bit of stuttering/non-smoothness when watching a 1080p H.264 rip over ethernet (info from Video Spec: "Format: H.264/MPEG-4 AVC; Bitrate: Max.: 31.3 Mbps / Average: 1 982 Kbps / Min.: ---; FPS: Max.: --- / Average: 23.976 / Min.: ---; Encoding Profile: [email protected]").

Shift and capslock are working for me with a logitech k400r and the terminal app. I'm running the ouya build.

Edit: sorry, shift/capslock NOT working under XBMC, just the OS.
New user here. Wanted to provide some quick feedback. I downloaded and ran a few short videos through the latest Koying build (xbmc-20140408-492e29a-master-armeabi-v7a.apk).

Settings and results: (Wired network)
libstagefright and MediaCodec enabled: some stuttering on SD video
libstagefright only enabled: XBMC crashed on SD video
MediaCodec only enabled: Excellent SD video, Very Good 720p video
libstagefright and MediaCodec disabled: lots of stuttering / unwatchable

Using just MediaCodec enabled, this build played videos better than any other build other the the two Ouya builds (SPMC 12.3.3 and XBMC for Ouya 12.3.2). Downloaded some video add-ons and all ran buttery smooth. Tested some 720p videos and they looked very good but not quite "perfect".

Not sure what "vq" means in the video debug screen, but that was running around 88%. I will run the Monster test video and provide more details. This build is definitely on the right track. Maybe some users with more advanced understanding of XBMC can test this and provide more useful feedback than I can.
Sounds promising @jtr2006.

How does it go passing through DTS, AC3, DTS-HD, etc?
