Hi there,
I just upgraded to Eden and was quite excited about the improvements made. ... until I tried to play a mkv. XBMC immediately crashed an restarted and no matter what setting I try to change, I just can't get it work. All other videos do work without any problems but mkv does not. I've already searched for any sollution here, I indeed found some solutions, but none of them worked for me.
Does anyone have any idea what else I could try?
Some facts:
The system runs on Ubuntu Natty, all packages are up-to-date, both audio/video runs through hdmi to my tv.

And the last crashlog:
Code:

I'm not getting a crash but I do have problems as well, with the audio specifically. Video plays perfectly but I get:

Failed to initialize audio (check settings)

Everything else, music and other video formats are running apropiately. I am running Ubuntu 10.10, using HDMI in both audio/video. Before, I was connecting thru the vga cable and analog outputs and it was working flawlessly. I tested the same files using just VLC and I get both audio/video.

Ok, I just found out I have the same issue when playing YouTube-Videos and Videos over AirPlay...
Is this a sound problem? Can anyone give me just a hint what I should look at?

I was able to fix my problem... somehow it got me thinking that since I'm using HDMI and that usually is a stereo signal (and now that my receiver is missbehaving I'm forced to just use the TV's stereo speakers (really big uggh) well, everytime I tried playing a MKV (and the ones I have are all 5.1) all I got was silence and the error. I just set it up to 5.1 and they are working again.

Seems like the same problem as in http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=126485, try to delete the .asoundrc file.

Code:
cd /home/xbmc
cp .asoundrc .asoundrc_bck
rm .asoundrc
sudo reboot

I am having crashes/freezes pretty often with files with files. I am on Starting XBMC (12.0-RC2 Git:8e45737), Platform: Linux (Ubuntu 12.10 - XBMCbuntu, 3.5.0-41-generic i686). Built on Dec 20 2012

I tried to find that .asoundrc file, but can't seem to find it anywhere there is actually no /home/xbmc directory. Where else may it be? Is it ntot on the newer version of xbmc?
