Description

After installing this official build (showtime-3.1.228.gbd329.pkg) video playback is broken (blank/black). I can still hear audio, but there is no video at all.

This was tested on some 720p .MKV video files that worked perfectly fine before updating. I reverted back to a previous version and video is working again.

History

#1 Updated by Rusty Unknown about 10 years ago

This was tested on CFW Kmeaw v3.55

#2 Updated by Rusty Unknown about 10 years ago

Correction: Platform = PS3

#3 Updated by Andreas Smas about 10 years ago

  • Target version set to 3.2
  • Platform changed from Linux to PS3

Ok, what version was it that worked (ie. the one you reverted to)?

Can you also attach the file that does not work?

I'd really love to fix these things...

#4 Updated by Rusty Unknown about 10 years ago

I reverted back to 3.1.178.gccffd.dirty

I only have a 384 Kbits upload rate where I am so uploading such a large file is not really practical (they are 700+ MB). If not for that, I would have included a copy. I'm also not sure if there is any simple way to split MKV files without altering the codecs.

Here is some information about the example video file, it may be helpful.

EDIT: I have also confirmed this issue does not affect all video formats. I have also sent you an email titled "** Showtime playback issue **" that has some more information. Please check it.

#5 Updated by Rusty Unknown about 10 years ago

Even when on the reverted version 3.1.178.gccffd.dirty, the video will also go blank/black and possible freeze if I try to seek the video. This may not be an issue in newer builds, but I can't test it since video playback is not working at all on the new official build.

Let me know if I can provide any more information or feedback.

#6 Updated by Simeon Dobrudjanski about 10 years ago

I have a slow upload speed, but I'll post a sample within ano hour or two, I also have this problem, but only for videos that have 7.1 audio. I can't hear 7.1 at all and some videos don't even have video displayed (black screen).

#7 Updated by Simeon Dobrudjanski about 10 years ago

This is the file. With this one, I have video playback but no sound, which is 7.1. I'll try to post one which doesn't have video playback as well.

#8 Updated by Simeon Dobrudjanski about 10 years ago

Ok this one doesn't have neither sound or video playback. If the audio is in English 7.1, there's no audio, but if Chinese is selected, which is standard AC3, it appears. You'll also see some weird fast forwarding in the beginning of the video. This and the previous files worked in Showtime .203 except when Showtime crashes - is this because of my videos or my system, because on youtube some guy played Avatar from a fully ripped bluray mkv file with PERFECT speed - no A/V diff or lag or anything. How is that possible? I usually only play 720p x264 rips but showtime tends to crash a lot, especially when pausing or rewinding. Thanks in advance and keep up the good work.

#9 Updated by Ajith Thampi about 10 years ago

I am not sure if I should be adding this here or if it's a known issue. I see that "AAC" codec doesn't go well with playback. I have a file with AAC audio, and on playback it just gives a static sound. Didnt get to check with older releases though. (Will update if I find it different)

#10 Updated by Ajith Thampi about 10 years ago

Attaching a cut of mp4 video with AAC audio codec not working. I have seen some other AAC samples working though.

#11 Updated by Girish Patel about 10 years ago

I have Star Wars mkv too with 7.1 audio and it does not work with 3.1.228.

However I built 3.1.215 last night and the file played fine.

Actually it's DTS-ES 6.1 (5.1 + a center back speaker). Did not test this. Thanks for the sample. Working now.

FWIW, This is also 6.1 audio.

However I built 3.1.215 last night and the file played fine.

Here, I have uploaded a small 10 second sample.

Ok, what's the issue with this sample? Did you try with a build that includes the fixes attached to this bug?

Please avoid just adding more and more sample to one bug. I'd very much prefer to have them as separate bugs.

#17 Updated by Simeon Dobrudjanski about 10 years ago

Sorry Andreas, I should've looked deeper into the files. It might sound a bit noobish but uhh can somebody provide me with a pkg with this fix included as I can't really built this myself? Thanks in advance.

It took a while for the upload to finish, so I did not see the issue was fixed until after my upload completed (and the page refreshed).

I was the one who started this bug, and that sample was one with broken video, as explained when I opened the bug. As you said it has been fixed now.

So that sample is actually related to this issue, it just didn't finish uploading until after you fixed it.
