Eureka!! - elite1967 - 2011-12-09 20:32
just to share my little success: I managed to compile the AE branch!!
What I did was:
1) install XBMC-Live (ubuntu 10.04)
3) upgrade to the nightly builds
4) copy the source code to my PC
5) copy the dependencies
I do not have a HDMI card yet (will buy in the week end) so cannot test the HD audio capabilities so far, but the custom compiled version runs smoothly and shows the new HD audio options in the settings.
1) is it better to stay with Ubuntu 10.04 or move to 10.10 or 11.04?
2) got as lot of warnings during the "make" phase. Is it correct?
- I found a bug (Please note that my card does not have HDMI output, so this is certainly the cause, but it should not crash):
if I try to select HDMI audio output (in the Settings->System->Audio Output), XBMC crashes with the following lines in the log:

Congrats on the build - takes some work first time. Can't help you on the Ubuntu side (I'm Win7). Just wanted to confirm there are many warnings generated mostly due to dubious type-conversions or unused but declared variables, etc.
Give it a go when you get your HDMI - for all the bugs it's still nice to hear hi-def Flacs in all their glory. Expect lots of stuttering when you try DTS-MA though.

Hi, congrats on your success! I have windows 7, foobar2000 and XBMC Dharma. Do you think I would be able to install the new audio engine on Windows and listen to 24-bit music through the XBMC interface? Thanks, Alex

Only if you compile XBMC with AE support yourself. I just checked the latest sources and the Visual Studio solution builds fine on win32 so if you got the knowledge/skills to build XBMC yourself feel free to do so. But (as the title of this topic indicates) there are no pre-built executables/installers for XBMC with AE available.

Hi Montellese, thank you for replying. I guess I do not have enough expertise to compile it myself. Bad luck for me! Alex

Here's the most stable I've tried yet - including a build I made just a week ago (all the latest code). It's for Windows. Please read my post #767 on previous page for some precautions to avoid upsetting your current setup.
If you need help feel free to ask...

Hi Everyone ... First post so be gentle ... not sure of the forum rules but I'd have thought all feedback welcome.
I have a Zotac ION based system on win7.
I've tried the above build and video playback is completely messed up (huge number of dropped frames) and I'm getting no audio output. I see from this earlier post during the summer that ION is supported (http://forum.xbmc.org/showpost.php?p=823555&postcount=393 ), but that was on linux so maybe not in windows ?
Haven't programmed in C++ in years but might have a go downloading source going through any dummy guides to see if I can help. Well done with getting this far ...

Likely just a horsepower issue, but I'd just have to caution patience in that case and wait for development to resume. It's just unrealistic to expect you can quickly get somewhere near a fully usuable build without a ton of work and coding expertise at this point. I'm pretty lucky with that build largely as a result of the hardware side playing ball, but it's still a far from a stable pre-Eden version.

Has anyone had problems with the video freezing using this branch?
I have always had this problem were a couple times a week at most the video and sound would freeze then after about 10 seconds the audio would come back but the video stayed stuck. The only way to fix it was to ssh in and restart the xbmc-live service.
This was annoying but manageable due to the low frequency but 2 days ago it started happening constantly. I have not been able to finish a 22 minute tv show without it happening once or twice in the last couple days.
Has anyone figured this out. My system has not been touched other then add-ons that auto update which, I assume is the problem because as this started a couple script started giving errors on boot-up. I removed them but the freezing stayed.
I can provide a crash log but only if needed since I don't like some of the info included and it is to big to manually edit. Which is why I am asking f someone had the same problem and knows a fix, first.
EDIT: I disable any add-ons that I had installed but no longer used and disable auto updates for the rest and have went a couple hours no problem so it looks like it is fixed.
Now I am happy I don't have to leave the AE branch because for my use it is done and supports every audio I have threw at it. Now I just can't wait until the XBMC base is updated to a current git.
Thanks for all the hard work.
EDIT 2: I was wrong I just had a run of luck it is still bad.

I've compiled the ae version I want to install it to test out but currently I am running eden pre via unstable ppa and I am wondering how to temporarily uninstall that version without losing my library etc... so I can install the AE version to test.
