seer_tenedos Wrote:bambi73 your build is working great! Any chance of maintaining a page or something with the latest builds so we can update and see updates whenever you fix a bug if there are any? Maybe they could then add a link on the wiki or something for now until support gets added to XBMC in 2+ months?I plan to make thread in XBMC Development subforum, so I'll have control over first post and can post builds there. I'm now working on Matroska Ordered chapters/editions support, so I wanted to make that thread when I have something to publish. But maybe I'll do it now for new ffmpeg builds.
seer_tenedos Wrote:For a matter of interest how hard was the modifications you made? There were others that seemed to easily make the change in linux and now you have made the change in windows but the devs are saying the changes are huge and will take 3+ months which i can understand but then you and others are posing working versions in such a short time.I used ffmpeg tag n.0.7.6 which should have compatible API with one in XBMC, so there was no so much work on it. What caused most problems for me was versioning of this tag, which is complete mess so i removed most of conditional code on interface. Of course this is not option for XBMC developers, so they will spent much more time on it that me. Additional work is reapplying of 50+ patches to ffmpeg which I skipped because it's hard for me to decide if patch is still needed and in some cases to find original place where patch it . I still plan to apply some selected patches to some next build, but for that I need time
seer_tenedos Wrote:bambi73 only had one issue so far and that is the thumbnails for the 10-bit video have green lines through them. That said i really don't care about the thumbnails anyway but just thought i should mention it.
jpsdr Wrote:It seems that it has another issue : If deinterlacing is set to OFF, 10bits decoding is not working (post #180).I already corrected this, will make new build when I have some time

jpsdr Wrote:Do you plan to support what i've asked in ticket #12166 ?Yes, it's main reason why I'm doing it. Linking segments from different files is what most peoples understand under the term "Ordered chapters".

Ok, thanks. I didn't know in fact how this feature was named. Now, in the future i'll know what Ordered chapters mean. I'm very interested by the realease you're trying to make : update ffmpeg for 10bits and MT + Ordered chapters !! Whoh, my dream will come true !!

An updated XBMC Core player with better support, more features, and perhaps better quality would indeed be rather interesting
If it worked it'd probably be enough to get me to come back from MediaPortal, which right now is the only way to get all my files working properly without having to deal with the bugs in DSPlayer, or faffing around with external players.

I'd also like to chime in here: This is a terriffic job if everything comes together as you plan, bambi73. Monitoring this thread with eagle eyes.

Very interesting, would this mean better audio decoding as well? I noticed dramatic improvement in sound after using dsplayer b/c I could use ffpmg audio to properly decode surround sound flac and it communicated the effects better to my receiver.

I'm only modifying current FFmpeg to be able parse appropriate chapters/editions informations from matroska files and DVDPlayer to be able interpret them. I don't touch any decoding processing, it isn't my goal. I'm modifying almost current FFmpeg version so only improvements can come from it.

bambi73 Any chance you can do another release soon?
Also i am wondering if anyone else is having issues with the app not closing when you click shutdown in XBMC. I use Neon and NEON SVN and both had same issue. XBMC is just set to close on shutdown button in the skin but instead it just acts busy and never does anything.
Also has the odd freeze here and and i find it updates my music lib on startup but will not update my video lib on startup for some reason. Need to manually trigger the video lib update.
Hi10 playback seems to be perfect from what i can tell. AMD Fusion did not have enough grunt for it so swapped it with an quad core i had sitting around and all is running well now apart from issues above.

I'm not having issues with the shutdown function.
However, there is a problem with framedrops with hi10p material, which appears to have its cause rooted in the autodetection of interlaced material (which we have to enable in the posted build, otherwise we get that funky psychodelic greenish look). Mind you, this is with a quadcore, and definitely an issue with the autodetection part in general (these drops also happen with very high-bitrate 8bit material).
I'd love to get my hands on an intermediate release in which deinterlacing can be disabled. Any chances, bambi73?
