xine and mpeg file 1280x720 with dolby 5.1
« on: July 30, 2010, 07:14:49 pm »
Hi all,

I have received a series of mpg files from a friend with a HBO serie within. If I play the file on my laptop (Lucid) with xine there is no problem:
Stream info gives me
Video: 1280x720 codec MPEG(libmpeg2)
Audio: Bitrate 384000 Bits 16 Samplerate 48000 Codec A/52 5.1

Running it on either one of my 2  MD's gives me video but no audio

When starting up xine on one of the MD's via ssh on my laptop I can see that the audio section has "unavailable" listed for the codec.

Versions of xine are the same, installed packages not:

md:
Code: [Select]
root@moon186:~# dpkg --get-selections |grep xine
amarok-engine-xine                              install
libxine1                                        install
libxinerama1                                    install
phonon-backend-xine                             install
pluto-xine-player                               install
xine-ui                                         install
root@moon186:~#

laptop (Lucid)
Code: [Select]
han@Acer1410:~/.xine$ dpkg --get-selections |grep xine
libxine1                                        install
libxine1-bin                                    install
libxine1-console                                install
libxine1-ffmpeg                                 install
libxine1-misc-plugins                           install
libxine1-x                                      install
libxinerama1                                    install
phonon-backend-xine                             install
xine-ui                                         install
han@Acer1410:~/.xine$

But when I try to install libxine1-ffmpeg apt wants to deinstall almost everything *pluto*. Clearly not what I want ;D.

Any body experience or ideas?

TIA

Han

Edit: I have already changed the extensions to m2ts and then Mplayer does what it should do, giving me video and stereo or 5.1 depending on the MD. The only thing is; pauze doesn't work, no lipsync no ff or rewind etc.

There was an update to audio demux/decode in libxine around 1.1.18 for what you are seeing.
Atm I´m not sure what we can do about it.

take a look at /etc/pluto/xine.conf. There you can change the parameters needed for audio.
dont't forget to reload dcerouter after change this file.

I think the problem lies not in the parameters in xine.conf. As long as I see "unavailable" for the encoder in the audio section of stream info, its no use fiddling around with the setting in xine.conf for the audio output, at least that is what I am guessing at the moment.

btw I have already done a lot of fiddling in xine.conf  :o

Niz23,



How did I get it;
1) ssh -X root@192.168.80.3
2) started xine
3) selected file to play
4) opened stream info within menu of xine
5) screendump

Screendump for my Lucid laptop (after apt-get install xine-ui):



TIA

This mean that the codec to decoue tthe audio stream does not work for your file in the version xine we have atm.
Lucid have xine 1.1.17.

I can look into if it is possible to backport newer audio codecs to the vesion we use. I do not promise anything.
