Users / Re: Gray screen on playback of VC-1 video codec
« on: November 04, 2011, 11:15:59 pm »
I apologize.  There *was* a 1004 version there, it's been removed.  Here is the 1004 libxine2 that I built at that time,  it is a little newer than the libxine2 that lmce1004 uses but not extremely recent.

lmce1004 does NOT use the ubuntu stock libxine 1.1.XX.  lmce1004 uses libxine2 (libxine 1.2hg) from early February 2011 from the yavdr project.   lmce will only use libxine 1.1.19 if you setup a builder and recompile pluto-xine-player against it.

Looks like you are you using vdpau?  If so then the nvidia driver/video card is doing the vc-1 decode not libxine...  Have you tried newer nvidia drivers?  Ubuntu 11.10 will be using newer nvidia drivers.


Latest nvidia drivers:

This has been done before:

A newer (although not the newest) libxine1.2 is here:,11497.0/topicseen.html

You can use the xineplayer that is included there as well but it is older source and there have been some additional bug fixes in 0810 Final.
If you're really keen you can install the newer libxine1.2 on an 0810 build system and build the xineplayer against the newer libxine1.2 to create a more recent xineplayer.

I will be building a newer one as soon as I have time and now that 0810 is Final.

I still don't understand the point.  Why not edit the existing page so things are not fragmented and then everything can be found in one spot...  You are completely circumventing the point of a wiki.  There is already a page for what you are doing, add to it.  That's my opinion.

What you're doing seems to be just fragmenting the wiki into multiple pages with the same intent.  If you just add to the existing page then everything is in one place where everyone can find and then anybody can easily add their own to it.  This is the whole point of a wiki.  Related information can be found in one place and anyone can edit it.  My opinion.

Why does it need to be re-written?  Couldn't the existing page be added to rather than duplicating these items across multiple pages?

That's good news.  I havn't had a chance to look at the restart on crash issue, just too busy.

At some point I will build a new one but I don't have the time right now.

I noticed that it is a little more responsive as well.  I'm really glad it is working for you.

Ideally this would go into the repository.  I'll see about submitting a complete tarball to svn.

There is a problem with the extras-devel build of mysql common.  It depends on bash, but the package doesn't know that... and bash is not installed by default on the n800.  I have removed the bash requirements of the install/remove scripts and have a rebuild of mysql-common without the errors from the maemo repository...

Looks like I forgot to include it in the tarball...  I apologize profusely for that.  Here is a link to just the mysql-common .deb: Included in the original tarball now.

That should fix you up.  Again I am sorry for missing that .deb in the archive.

Either way, the new .debs will replace the old version when you install it.  The new .debs are the same as the old, just new orbiter build.   

You should be able to add the icon through the regular menu editing on the n800, the icon is added to it.  Otherwise you should be able to launch it from the command line with /usr/bin/linuxmceorbiter, but the icon should be installed with the new .debs just like the old one.

Not silly at all!  Great question.

It launches from the same icon you currently use to launch the diablo orbiter in maemo.  I use the same icon to launch this build as the 0710 lmceorbiter that I have always used.  It's built from the source that is in svn at with a few updates for new dependencies and fixes for building.

The installer .deb deals deals only with the installation, installing the fonts that orbiter requires and the orbiter package itself.  The installer is a simply a repackaged version of the one niteman created, hosted at, but it is updated to depend on this newer build.  After the .debs are installed you should have an icon available for lmceorbiter, the same as you do now.

Thanks Coley, I wasn't aware of the n900 build hosted by the community, I'll check it out.

If the screens work for purps then I'll talk to posde, I'm not using lmce for television currently.  I'd also like to see if niteman has a more recent source for the maemo wrapper than is in the lmce svn.

Someone can correct me if I am wrong but... This is because the new TV screens require a rebuild of the orbiter to work properly and that hasn't been done on the Maemo builds since the TV screens were added almost 2 years ago now (I think).

Here is an updated Maemo n800/n810 orbiter, with dependencies, that you can try out to see if it fixes your issues, you can always revert to the old version if you have problems:

On your n800 you will need to get to the command prompt, get root access and un-tar the archive and install the .deb files with dpkg.
Code: [Select]
mkdir work
cd work
tar xvf ../lmceorbiter-diablo-0810.tar.gz
dpkg -i *.deb

You may need to do an 'apt-get -f install'

If you can't access the DL link I can post it elsewhere. 

The only bug I can see is that it is not automatically restarting if it crashes, I havn't even looked into that yet but I think that niteman must have newer source than what is currently is svn.

I have a new n900 build as well, if anyone is having the same issues, just havn't tested it yet.

I know this post is going to piss off at least one person but...

TSCHAK was *PAID* for this work (and paid well).  Shouldn't TSCHAK fix it rather than pawning it off on someone else?  Why should others have to do the work that TSCHAK was paid for?


Sorry l3me, I didn't mean to sound like I was suggesting what you were doing was incorrect.  On the contrary!

I was simply putting the information out there 'in case' you (or others following) were not aware.  It's impossible to tell what others do or do not know.

I think this is an important bug to tackle!  The work you're doing is very necessary and you should keep it up!
