MP4 Crash
« on: March 10, 2013, 09:42:58 pm »
Hi all, i have a problem with Mp4 videos. If i play them one by one it works very good but if i queue let say 2 files xine crashes when it change file. I then have to do multiple reloads before xine comes back up an i can start i new file.

Hey I found this also. MP4 and MKVs put into a queue / playlist makes everything freeze up, fixed by cancelling playback, but then a quick reload or two is required.

I thought it may have been something to do with me uninstalling mythtv, so I restored to a previous image just to check, but the problem still exists.

Cheers,
Matt.

Well then im not alone in this =)
Feels like the problem is related to xine itselfand not LMCE?

Please file a ticket, and be sure to put the version of libxine that is present.

And make sure to detail the file type. mkvinfo's output might be very helpful. It is quite possible, that the problem lies in a switch from one player (Xine_Player) to another player (MPlayer_Player).

I've added some mkvinfo for a couple of MKVs that cause this issue; they all appear to be the same.

Cheers,
Matt.

Can anyone see if (a) a coredump happens, and if it does (B) can a backtrace be posted?

I am still running 810, and this has been a problem from day 1 for me.
What I do is before the file finishes, I hit the skip button to start the next video. Xine freezes only when it is done reading a file and has to read the next file in the list.
