Users / Re: Gray screen on playback of VC-1 video codec
« on: November 05, 2011, 03:32:45 am »
thanks for the info.

Yes, I have installed the 285.05.09 Nvidia driver... it has cleared up alot of 'noise' on video.

Yes, I have vdpau set for Hardware Acceleration.

I will try the libxine2 you have posted and see if it helps with the VC-1 video codec in the mkv files.


Dennis




I was thinking about trying to install lmce on 11.04 or 11.10... just to see what would happen... heck I got it partly working on Gentoo before.

phenigma,
     according to the linked document, 1004 is supposed to have the libxine1.2 baked in.   Im running 1004, and all .mkv files play... with the exception of those with the VC1 video format.. the screen is gray...   The link appears to mostly apply to 0810.

is there something Im missing that you're saying?

this is going to take some effort... i recompiled a newer ffmpeg, then recompiled the 1.1.19 xine-lib... however, the system always reverts to the existing libxine.so.2.0.0 and libxine.so.1.27.0... is there something i need to do to force LMCE to use the newer libxine.so.1.29.0?   


I think the system is using the libxine.so.2 linked to libxine.so.2.0.0, but if i try to link libxine.so or libxine.so.1 to libxine.so.1.29.0, nothing changes.. if i link libxine.so.2 to libxine.so.1.29,0, the system resets libxine.so.2 to libxine.so.2.0.0...

Installation issues / Re: MCE USB2 remote not working on MD (10.04)
« on: October 31, 2011, 11:40:01 pm »
similar issues with the Gyro remotes... you may have to re-determine the codes being sent for each button press... using the 'xev' ... then check the template for the remote and compare the codes.. fixing any that dont match...

Ive successfully installed the 285 driver on my MD.   You'll have to kill the X process and manually run the NVidia installer..   then reboot

Thom,
   Does LMCE use a modified libxine and codec stack?   or can one compile a newer libxine?

That C and C++ stuff is just a tad bit hard for me to comprehend..    this stuff isnt anything like the 'hello world' programs they always use for an example!!!!!

Users / Re: Getting errors while coping some dvd's
« on: October 27, 2011, 03:37:06 am »
From my own experiences, not all DVDs can be ripped to the hard drive with LMCE... I too had to use another program.   However, the .dvd extension is the same as a .iso file.. just rename them to .dvd.

As for jerky video.. is it fine while just watching a movie?   Are you ripping a disc to the same drive that the movie is being played from?   If so, it may just be a limitation... you may also try installing a newer nVidia driver.. Im running 185 right now   and HD video is much better.

That's what we need to figure out. When I have time I'm going to open the panel and with a multimeter try to determine how the sensors are wired and operate. It may be 3 conductor [ground, DC power, signal (ON/OFF)] or simpler.

Dave,
    I work on fire alarm systems, security systems, and other life safety equipment.

Most modern security panels have 8 zones on the main board... usually operating at 12-16vdc.   A typical zone is 2 wires... a common and a return.   Depending on the configuration of the point in software, the point may be normally-open unsupervised OR supervised, OR normally-closed unsupervised OR supervised... Supervision is done with a resistor and offers 3 states NORMAL, OPEN, and SHORT.  A non-supervised only offers 2 states NORMAL and OFF-NORMAL.

Most panels work about the same way when it comes to the zones, with minor differences in the End-Of-Line (EOL) supervision resistor value.


now wasnt that geeky!

I am stumped as well.  it has to do with xine, but Im not sure about where to determine and how to fix (even if Im smart enough to fix).

as far as I can tell.. all codec packages are installed.   MKV files can play fine as long as they are MPEG video.

Users / Gray screen on playback of VC-1 video codec
« on: October 16, 2011, 06:55:22 pm »
Hi gang,
    I 'obtained' a media file (mkv) that has video codec of 'Microsoft VC1'.   The audio plays but the video screen is solid gray.   I can play this file on Kubuntu 11.10 just fine.  I am running LMCE 1004, latest build.

On the MD, the Hardware Acceleration is set to 'auto' ... tried at 'vdpau' also, but didnt change anything.

Here is a snippet from the Xine log file on the MD:

The video will play without failing... with only the gray screen.

Even though not using your script, Ive found that External Media Identifier doesnt work because it is asking for libdvdread3 when 1004 using libdvdread4.

I installed libdvdread3 and now E.M.I is working.
