Apart from the above question, I've noticed another thing: when a video with no audio is played back, Kodi freezes. Tried with both Reclock and standard DirectSound audio renderer. You might ask why I play back videos with no audio, they're test patterns for video calibration.

Is it possible to upload the video to Google Drive or something similar?

Thanks for all your work on this.

Getting an unusual resolution change issue with 25hz (screen does 50hz)
(Will post log tonight - could not see anything obvious)
http://pastebin.com/AZk5C5Kk


Screen does not change resolution to 50hz and results in very bad playback.
Tried all the change resolution Kodi settings - Always/On/Off etc no change to issue.

Finally on changing to MadVR fullscreen exclusive (which had moved away from to minimise issues)
does the resolution correctly change and playback appears correct.

Using Build 7/Latest MadVR - screen in fullscreen windowed mode.
MadVR - Ctrl+J - shows 24hz screen, file 25hz.

On thing I haven't attempted is to move to MadVR for resolution change - which I understand was suggested against?
(is this still the case even with 0.8888)

Thanks

Glenn

I'd try madVR refresh rate switching with Kodi refresh rate switching still enabled. See if that fixes or breaks anything.

i added a tiben20 patch to fix this, are you using isengard dsplayer?

p.s.

i worked a little bit on an aspect of DSPlayer madVR that was not working properly... with this release it's a first approch to have madvr playback even while we are in kodi main menu

@Warner306

are they using Isengard DSPlayer with the latest testbuild?

EDIT

i just discovered that each skin manage the video playback under the main menu in a different way so it's better to leave this features for now, i will revert these changes

I am curious if the black screen problem is improved by using the new Direct3D 11 Presentation Path. This settings improves the speed of entering and exiting Fullscreen exclusive mode.

I'm going to install build 8 and will let you know tomorrow when i have the chance to watch more videos..

As for the GPU burning during pause, I haven't checked with GPU-Z, but the GPU fans are making a lot of noise, so I'm pretty sure the GPU is quite stressed during pause..
So far so good with buil 8 (apart for GPUbruning during pause)

@for all

the member @*Roma* has made some improvements to use pvr functionality of kodi with dsplayer, i know that there are alot of you that will love to use the dsplayer+livetv this it's the moment to come out and test Smile


@djoole

just sent a message to madshi for gpu burning, from my side i made my best, i think that could be some new in the next month
so for the focus/black screen problem you tested during these days with full success?



p.s.

i think that with this last mod madVR should work (incredibly) like evr on DSPlayer, i have to test another bit, but seems to work with all the skins

Yes, I'm using Isengard, version compiled on May 23rd.

What about subs rendering with mpc-hc engine? There seems to be settings for them in the GUI but I can't seem to find how to use them and XySubFilter doesn't render on black bars of 2:35 movies (with madVR).

@ashlar
can you upload somewhere a sample of a file with the problem?

for the old sub rendering engine honestly it's too bad compared to recents version of XySubFilter\Xy VsFilter... madshi already knows about this behavior and should fix this too with one of the next release, more then once guys on doom9 asked about this, so i think that the best solution it's to wait for madVR

then maybe in the while @tiben20 can look where old sub render it's broke and the stuff related to "one stream file", anyway i just retried my avs rc709 files with video only and are played correctly, it's strange

guys i finished my strength i have to recharge Smile

I think you can try set that in XySubfilter / XyVSFilter settings under genereal - vertical padding to extended to 16:9. It might works like what you want.

I'm using XySubFilter 3.1.0.705 and I don't see the option you are describing. Would you mind posting a screenshot of its loacation?
