I have copied parts of the YaVDR PPA into our repo, to ease the installation of the VDR parts. This is for 1004. YaVDR are very good at providing fairly up-to-date xine and mplayer debs. Glad that it works not only for the happy VDR users, but also for the poor souls still needing to run MythTV ;P

I get an error trying to install the pluto-xine-player. I tried reinstalling the libavcodec52 once again (this time with no error in the end) but I still get the same error trying the install the pluto-xine-player

Looks like you might have to uninstall libpostproc51 first.

I don't have access to my system at the moment.  I'll check into this later tonight and get back to you.  It looks like I may have missed a dependency in the archive.

I missed a dependency for libxine2, I aplogize for that.  The first post has been updated and there is a new archive there that includes the updated libpostproc51 that libxine2 was built against.  Good luck!  Let me know if you have any other issues.

Try an "apt-get -f install" and see what that does for you.  Otherwise I will set up a test machine today and get this sorted out.  I apologize for the issues you're having.

I've tested this here locally and it looks like I've mucked up the dependencies and the libpostproc51 I supplied is not the correct build of the .deb.

I will re-do the build in the next few days and re-post proper dependencies.

Sorry for the frustration.  You can use the older version (the text with the strike-through) in the first post until I get this rebuilt.  Should have it ready before the end of the weekend.

Updated.  I've redone the two tar files, proper dependencies (and all of them) are included.  I've done a test install and it works.

Just installed i and it works :)

Thank you so much for your efforts.
One thing tough. I have this one MKV that did not work before, now the video works great and even the subtitles. The only thing not working is the sound (which works as usual in other videos). The receiver doesn't even pickup he stream at first. After a minutes or so it suddenly switches to DTS, but still no sound is preasent.
In the web admin, the sound card is configures as HDA Nvidia and the AC3/DTS pass thru is checked.
Is there anyway to check what's going on ?

One more question, is there any way to control the font/encoding of the subtitles ?

Thnx again.

You're welcome.  I am glad others are able to make use of the upgrade.

What kind of audio is stored in the file?  DTS & AC3 should play fine (I have no issues whatsoever with either).  AAC stereo should play just fine as well.  AAC multichannel audio will likely fail to play, although xine fails to play these files at all for me unless I reconfigure it.  Check my wiki for how I reconfigure xine.conf to enable AAC multichannel on 0810.  I have been unable to get multichannel AAC to work on 1004, something between the alsa version and the nvidia drivers is the likely cause but beyond me to figure out right now.

I have at other times had issues with sound on MDs and I usually re-run the avwizard and everything is fixed.  My audio is set for 'Standard Sound Card', I've never tried changing it to HDA nvida.  Not sure what effect that would have, if any.

One more question, is there any way to control the font/encoding of the subtitles ?

I believe that these are controlled through xine-ui, but I am not certain.  I do not have much media with subtitles, mostly Blu-Ray on disc.

Thank you so much! For the first time I can play mythtv recordings that show up in the video list directly through LMCE. This has been a deficiency that has been often commented on but none of the earlier fixes took care of it on my system. Fantastic upgrade for LMCE. Great work.
