Been testing these new builds out against various streams from my STRM pack lately. 01/07/2007 and 01/08/2007 revisions seem to have borked streaming video (mms://) a bit; connects fine and stops, going back to the menu.
Reverted back to the first experimental revision for now -- it helped fix a ton of demuxing issues indeed. I'm grateful.

right, could you give me a sample stream?
<edit> never mind, fixed now. new dll available </edit>

elupus, thanks a ton and I'll check it out tonight. Have there been any voice sync issues in streams other than RealMedia that anyone else has noticed? (I'll look into this more tonight on some WindowsMedia streams -- I've noticed a slight delay now and then on some of them (like RTR Planeta (240k) in Russia).
Really looking forward to your continued work on mplayer. Meanwhile, my STRM pack if you need any to test can be found at http://www.op9.net/files/XBMC/XBMC-TV.zip -- hope this helps, and I don't mean this link to advertise. There's a ton of different kinds in there to test with.

Actually, a better example would be MIR TV Russia: mms://18.104.22.168/MIRTV_300

By changing the the line to lavdopts=skiploopfilter=bidir, the artefacts are gone. Too bad that only the deblocking of b-frames will be skipped then.still, just having lavdopts=skiploopfilter=bidir as an option (or default for H.264) might be an acceptable compromise(?)

Works great on h.264 so long as it's not packaged with AAC audio, and with AC3 it still drops a few frames. Seems like with some heavy optimization of AAC and a liittle tweaking of AC3 all could run smoothly on alot of h.264 files without even having to optimize the h.264 codec any more.

I found another bug:
I have some AVIs with external subtitle-files.
The subs are not displayed with the new mplayer-build.
Skipping in Damaged XVIDs - joe4444 - 2007-01-11 04:39
I have no clue what feature of the newer version of mplayer allows playing through corrupted videos, but I have several videos that work fine in mplayer for win32. In XBMC these videos always skip over about 5 minutes or they simply stop playback completely. Here is a link to the log file from one of the videos that skips 5 minutes:
Hopefully this will be helpful to a developer because I don't understand it. All I know is that this and other videos have similar problems in XBMC but not in any video player I've tried in Windows.
- elupus - 2007-01-11 05:25
so could you tell how the new mplayer.dll does on those in comparison to old? that is really the only thing i'm interested in at this stage.
yea, noticed. if you are able to select another subtitle then they start showing up. ie a srt or maybe even another stream on the same..... hmm odd now they always show up. might know why..

I've done some more testing, and it appears the issue is actually related to an error in the FTP, although I'm not sure if it's XBMC or my client. Apparently when transferring some video files to my xbox they were corrupted. I verified this by running a checksum on the video files. The ones with problems do not match the originals I downloaded.

That sounds ominous... hope the FTP transer bug isn't back...

Could be. I use the latest build of XBMC and since that I have transfer problems with FTP, too! Transfers with Quix freeze etc.
- joe4444 - 2007-01-11 21:44
So this isn't new or unique to me? It was causing problems with at least 1/2 of the videos I transferred this week. I have been using the build from 2006-11-05 since late November, but only very recently (a few days ago) did this corrupt video problem occur.
Luckily I hadn't erased any of the originals from my PC, and after transferring them to my XBOX again the problem seems to be gone. I'm going to run a few more tests with recent builds to see if I can duplicate the problem.
Could someone point me to a thread related to the (old) FTP transfer bug?
Sorry for crashing your mplayer thread, elupus!
- elupus - 2007-01-11 23:26
please keep this stuff about ftp out of this thread. i'm very sad to hear about the ftp stuff thou. since i was in there last.
new mplayer.dll bug! - Hack_kid - 2007-01-12 18:52
Hi i know this is my first post but ive ben here forever just never bothered to register because i had no need to post until now because everything i had to say someone else had said but i have discovered a bug with the new mplayer.dll. If you are playing music (mp3) and are in the video section then back out to the home window and then go to videos and then choose a bookmark once you choose a book mark (mine is labeled movies) and quwincidently it is in the same physical position on the screen as my music share in the music tab (they are both in the exact middle of the list) well anyways once you choose a bookmark (mine being movies) the player skips to the next mp3 in playlist (folder) it basicaly executes the next song command when you press A and i can re create it.
here is my xbmc.log i dont know if it will help though doesnt seem to match up what was happening maybe i dont have the right logging setting on
