Git & svn snapshots not displaying video files

Postby Hewitson » Thu Mar 08, 2012 1:35 pm

I have a large collection of Xvid files, all of which play perfectly on my Panasonic TV via PMS 1.50.1. Earlier today I downloaded a few more and discovered they did not play correctly on my TV, the video is heavily corrupted and stops playing after a few seconds. They work fine on the PC. I examined the debug.log and found I was having the problem detailed here: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=13468

After seeing that a fix had already been committed I downloaded the latest snapshot via git and compiled it. No video filenames come up on the tv, only the jpg's of their covers. I also tried the same thing from the svn with the same result. I was quite surprised to see that the fix had been applied to 1.50.0 in the git, but not 1.50.2 in the svn. There is no error messages or anything unusual in the debug.log for either snapshot.

I would really like to be able to view these files and would be very grateful for some help. Here is the information requested in the problem reporting guidelines:

1. Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E6750 @ 2.66GHz, 4GB RAM, Gentoo Linux (kernel 3.0.6). PMS versions tried: current git snapshot 1.50.0 (revision unknown), current svn snapshot 1.50.2 (r1108).

java version "1.7.0_147-icedtea"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea7 2.0) (Gentoo build 1.7.0_147-icedtea-b147)
OpenJDK Server VM (build 21.0-b17, mixed mode)

2. Panasonic Viera Plasma TV, default Panasonic.conf.

3. Wireless N.

4. No transcoding.

5. Given above.

6. No relevant information.

7. I do not have mediainfo installed as it prevents PMS from being able to play videos on my TV. I can however give you the output of "file" from one of the offending videos:

RIFF (little-endian) data, AVI, 624 x 352, 25.00 fps, video: XviD, audio: MPEG-1 Layer 3 (stereo, 48000 Hz)

The latest code is only available on GitHub.
Do not use the code from SVN, it is no longer being maintained.

Can you post an exerpt of the debug.log where you play a corrupted video?

Just tried latest build from http://pms.smoeller.de/job/pms%20%28tru ... t.pms$pms/ as well as pms-1.51.0-SB67, both do not display any video files with or without libmediainfo. Something has definitely been broken since the 1.50.1 release.

Debug.log from 1.50.1 with a problematic video:

*ffmpeg thumbnail crap here*
[Thread-63] DEBUG 19:17:04.583 Using size-limiting stream (572489984 bytes)
[Thread-14] DEBUG 19:17:06.338 Sending ALIVE...

Hmmm, that doesn't help much.

It would be very helpful if you could nail the problem down to a particular commit by using "git checkout [commit id]", where "[commit id]" is the commit SHA code that can be copied from the commit list (hover over a button on the right and a "copy SHA" button will appear).
