This rocks.....almost.... - lewis.donofrio - 2009-03-24 03:38
Any fix for the snaps and superfast playback.....
like Drowning pool - let the bodies hit the floor.....)-: wish it played right.....I'd be willing to beta test any effort to resolve this.
overall, one kick ass job though!

request - allow us to play a whole directory......like the whole duran duran list.....

I just submited a bug report to xbmc trac for dvdplayer.
i also tested my header theory by changing the
audiocodecid value from the header from 0 to 2 which i believe means mp3 and then then dvdplayer plays the file perfectly. 0 is for uncompressed. dvdplayer is trusting the flv header when it is incorrect.

I want several features like this. play all and play random where it will build a xbmx playlist for you and play it.
for genre video listings i want a random continous play. randonly select a genre video and repeat.
you can also look up artist related to a specific artist. so i want a continous random play with a specific artist as a seed and you could determine how many branches of related artists you could use.
i want to get favorites and searches working first and then move on to cooler stuff. The favorites will have 2 categories artists and videos. I want full playlist and random play type features for these.
Top videos from mtv or something similar isn't really high on my list because popular music doesn't interest me much. i would prefer a more customized experience with your chosen artists.
anyway i hope to have a continuous to semin-continous music channel on my xbox or at least thats my hope.

Added Artist and Video search
get it from the SVN Repo

I discovered there are alot more quality levels for more recent videos. they even stream h264 up to 640x480 at 1600kbitps. anyway there are up to 7 quality levels on some videos. so i am adding support for these. also they all seem to have at least one vp6/mp3 streams which is good because of the buggy nature of h264/aac over rtmp. i think i saw some work on this on the xbmc trac though.

My experience of the MTVNetworks script:
Great start to the script. Tonnes of content available, big plus.
* Search function would be ideal
* (as mentioned) random playlist would be amazing.
* Possibility of thumbnails?
* Starting a video is odd, seems to pause for a second, then plays
* Stopping videos seems hard work, video freezes, audio continues to play for maybe 10 seconds before returning to the UI. (is the script re-grabbing the index for the directory at this point?)
* Some videos (not worked out a pattern), seem not to play at all.
(I've had about 50-50 success rate with this script overall).
Some areas for improvement, but a gem of a script though. Top dollar.

PantsOnFire Wrote:* Search function would be idealalready added artists and video search as mentioned above.
PantsOnFire Wrote:* (as mentioned) random playlist would be amazing.thumbnails won't be a problem but i need to get a better parser.
i probably won't incorporate completely random playlists but more guided content.
PantsOnFire Wrote:* Starting a video is odd, seems to pause for a second, then playsnothing much to be done. it has to fetch the needed urls to play the video. i will see if i can speed it up
PantsOnFire Wrote:* Stopping videos seems hard work, video freezes, audio continues to play for maybe 10 seconds before returning to the UI. (is the script re-grabbing the index for the directory at this point?)ok i investigated this and it is a problem with dvdplayer because it is takes close to 8 seconds from the time you press stop to it actually stooping and all threads exiting.
PantsOnFire Wrote:* Some videos (not worked out a pattern), seem not to play at all.I requested people post specific artists and video names so i can try to reproduce any problems.
I currently have not found a video i can't play. there are bugs with xbmc playback but other then that they all play.
more feedback.....hissing video - lewis.donofrio - 2009-03-24 18:33
Here is an arist that has this video speed hissing audio issue:
Shakira - The One It suppose to be Audio mp3 but its using pcm_s16l
I also noticed its useing "DVDplayer" (does mplayer not play these or is dvdplayer better I dunno.....)
the video stream looks correct though
--When could I download a beta to help you fet these issues out (also be glad to test your high res version)
