  • Status changed from New to Invalid

16 ref-frames is too much for 720 content (9 is max according to standard).

I will add a warning so Showtime logs about this when playing 720 content (just as it does for 1080 content)

Ok! The warning is showing now! The videos are now showable! It comes sometimes the warning that the cpu is to slow, but it's playing! Thanks

#4 Updated by chris file almost 6 years ago

Maybe it's better to change the status from invalid to fixed

#5 Updated by Max Pot almost 6 years ago

MKV video plays with delays. Pops up a message, that the cpu is to slow.

#6 Updated by Max Pot almost 6 years ago

PS3 platform

#7 Updated by Andreas Smas almost 6 years ago

The video is not correctly encoded according to standards so the PS3 H264 decoder refuses to decode it, thus Showtime must decode it using the CPU -> Slow decode.

waiting for fix )

You should decide - play with the delays with message flying or just be blackscreen as this was before a fix...

#10 Updated by Max Pot almost 6 years ago

Please tell me how to downgrade Showtime PS3 test version to stable (where the MKV os good playable) ? Even after uninstalling and reinstalling it sees a test version. In what directory it keeps its updates? Showtime run's from multiman.
