Updating MPlayer.dll so i can play MKV - gunchums - 2007-03-09 15:42
In the 'MPlayer.dll development' thread i've downloaded and extracted them into my XBMC folder however it seems to have no effect as if it's not recognising the new codecs.
Quote:Make sure you put the mplayer.conf file in too otherwise you won't be able to use the new codecs.
Is this the problem?
What do i need to do and how?
- spiff - 2007-03-09 15:52
old mplayer handles mkv just fine.

Sorry i should have been clearer, i want to use the 'faster and more reliable h264 decoder' in the new MPlayer.dll

Where is the ultimate mplayer source code ?
In svn://svn.mplayerhq.hu/mplayer/branches/ ?
Better download from svn://svn.mplayerhq.hu/mplayer/trunk/ ?

stick the new dll and codecs.conf in system/players/mplayer and off you go.
- elupus - 2007-03-10 01:54
that is original version, ours is modified.

Where is yours ultimate modificated version? For testing.
Is mplayer_prelim in branches?
- finas - 2007-03-10 16:11
The latest ultimate version is, I belive, the one that you can get on the first page of this thread.
As stated elsewhere on this forum porting mplayer and getting it to run on xbmc is a pain in the ass, its not a compile as is, and use case. A lot of things must be changed in mplayers code, for it to be usable with xbmc.

Yeah, toom me 4 seperate attempts for my XBMC to recognise the new codecs. Spiff's simple yet effective advice movivated me to keep trying.
I can now watch all my MKV's with in sync sound and a fairly decent framerate with the h264 decoder. Hopefully there is still more juice to be squeezed from this orange.
- finas - 2007-03-10 23:11
gunchums: do you have better framerates ( h264) with your mplayer build than the latest mplayer from elupus?
- gronne - 2007-03-11 01:58
Are there any news on Coreavc, Elupus?
- spiff - 2007-03-11 22:09
yes, mplayer_prelim is the branch holding the new mplayer dll's source.
- Mariano - 2007-03-12 09:52
Test with mplayer_070214.zip and mplayer_prelim compilation (tested with codecs.conf of mplayer_070214.zip and codecs.conf original of xbmc; ultimate svn revision of xbmc and xbmc_prelim).
All files with x264 codec video (all files with cabac and deblocking) and mp3 audio:
- 352x288 resolution --> clicg-clacgs in sound and anytimes small-jump video
- 480x576 resolution --> clicg-clacgs in sound and anytimes small-jump video
- 720x576 resolution --> clicg-clacgs in sound and anytimes small-jump video
- Original video --> H264 video with mp3 audio --> Perfect --> Cabac and Deblocking
P.D.: In "accelerated secuences" have worse results...
P.D.2: program for convert videos to h264 for testing
- Mariano - 2007-03-12 10:49
I convert from 720x576.mp4 to 720x576.mkv:
- Audio mp3
- Video x264 with cabac and deblocking (at 720x576 resolution)
RESULT ---> PERFECT !!!!!
Tested with the original files of XBMC (svn source code).
