Guys,
It seems the subtitles addon script no longer works in this build (nightly May 2nd), it was working fine in the previous build. I get script failed when i try to run subtitles on a movie.

Here is what i see:

Some things are wrong, use 'git clone https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc.git' instead of subversion but that's what I used. There's a thread I started calling 'trying to build ATV2' thats old but has some useful info. good luck.

README.ios does correctly refer to git rather than subversion.
I followed the instructions and all was correct for me.

I did some research on the bug and it looks like Windows people are affected too, this commit though for Windows resolved it, so probably AppleTV needs the same loving Smile

I'm having problems to play mp3 files via SMB or DLNA

The OSD shows up but freezes at 0:01 play time. I tried with several files.

I'm using the last nightly (May 2nd)

AppleTV: 4.3 build 8F202

Darwin AppleTV 11.0.0 Darwin Kernel Version 11.0.0: Thu Feb 10 21:46:56 PST 2011; root:xnu-1735.46~2/RELEASE_ARM_S5L8930X AppleTV2,1 arm K66AP Darwin

XBMC Log:
http://pastebin.com/GRnzxCDf

Any ideas? Or what else could I check? Where to get more Logging information?

Same issue here

I find that if i press play, pause then play again the music will play... all songs in the existing list will work (select any song in list/skip to next) - if I select a new subset, I find I need to do the play/pause/play again.

Hope this helps with troubleshooting

Thanks for the workaround.

MP3 playback is a known issue. Seems to be introduced the same time bole5's audio fixes are, but doesn't seem like his fixes are the culprit.

FOR IOS: xbmc.log: /var/mobile/Library/Preferences/xbmc.log (be sure to enable debugging)
For troubleshooting and bug reporting please make sure you read this first.
Always read the XBMC online-manual, FAQ and search the forum before posting.

I have found something. If I go directly to the .vob file and play it, it plays fine. If I go to the VIDEO_TS folder and play it for the full dvd: the distributor and copyright videoclips play fine. Then I get the dvd language selection menu; and then the main dvd menu videoclip and episodes end up playing slowly at 3fps.

I guess it makes no sense sending you a clip right now. I will try the other change you suggested.

Regards,
Jaime.


I tried creating an ISO from one VIDEO_TS structure to test and can't get it working:

Yes, it was also reported in the audio patch thread earlier and I also am having the same problem: http://forum.xbmc.org/showpost.php?p=785...stcount=58
This issue shouldn't have anything to do with the audio patch since it works if you use the workaround I described in the post above.

With 01.04.11- 18.04.11 nightly builds there is no mp3 play bug, when I paste xbmc file with audio patch to 18.04.11 the mp3 bug appears, so the bug is after 18.04.11, but as I understand audio patch is done since 18.04.11 too, so may be some reasons to apply audio patch with erlier nihtly build to check, if ok then use it untill mp3 is fixed with latest nightly build.

By accident, I updated the wrong ATV to the latest build (may 2nd). Namely the ATV still on iOS 4.2.1 and it seems to be running just fine. Even AC3 sound is working.

I wanted to update my iOS 4.3.1 ATV running the nightlies, but ssh'd into the wrong one. duh...

Only bug I encountered was the subtitle add-on not working, but I guess you're not (yet?) interested in that, are you?

I am experiencing a problem with playback of mkv files and wmv files.
Bug report information below:

Platform: ATV2
iOS version: 4.1.1
XBMC Build: XBMC PRE-11.0 Git: 20110430-f5e63e6 (Compiled: May 2 2011)
Install method: wget & dpkg
full debug log:

When playing mkv files, the playback is a bit choppy. There will be occasional studders and slight pauses, and will sometimes need to buffer.

when playing wmv files, the playback is very choppy. The frame rate varies rapidly and ranges from as low as 11fps to only as high as 16fps. Some videos will start playing at 30fps and then degrade to 9fps. XBMC will then ocasionally crash

WMV XBMC log: http://pastebin.com/0KgGMHBg
WMV Crash XBMC log: http://pastebin.com/JDV6LBa1

My bad, I was not creating an UDF filesystem within the ISO.
ISO is stuttering the same for me as the VIDEO_TS.
I will try to create a small DVD to copy it locally to ATV2. I will try also a nightly for OSX to compare.

Good error report, seems your mkv is coded in mpeg 2 so it will not be hardware accelerated. Same thing with the WMV

Agreed, good error report and that the mkv is encoded /w mpeg2 but looks like the WMV is encoded with VC-1. Either way there's no hardware acceleration for either so neither's going to look too good on the atv2.
