I have copied some non-encrypted programs from a SKY HD box.

SD programs play fine however the HD ones plays sound fine but the video judders trying to catch up.

Mediainfo says its MPEG-TS with Video CODED AVC and AC3 sound.

It plays fine in VLC.

Could anyone advise what I need to add to my Win 7 XBMC for it to play?

Cheers

Alan

You need to go to a bleeding edge nightly build.
The problem was in ffmpeg which was not updated until after the release of 11.0 (Eden).

Always read the XBMC online-manual, FAQ and search the forum before posting.

Thanks sho

I assume that will turn up in the next release then? I did have a look at the nightly builds but can't see what they include.

Cheers

Hi folks,

I have a question about this. I am running version 11.0 "Eden" on a W7 x64 PC, which I use as media-player for my 3D TV. Until now I have mostly played MKV files and have not encountered one that doesn't run smooth. Of course I have enabled hardware acceleration, because otherwise my PC cannot cope.

Now I have received a MPEG video file, with these characteristics:

It does not play well. In fact, the video is extremely choppy and so is sound. It seems like hardware acceleration is not working?

I have tried to play the file using WMP Classic (from sourceforge) and that plays fine. Maybe XBMC needs an upgrade? Or am I missing something?

I have this exact problem. I'm using latest nightly build (15.8.2012). This happens only with MPEG-TS files. They play completely fine with MPC. I have K-lite mega codec pack installed with default settings. XBMC have played everything without any problems but not this.
