Has it been definitively established that the file is sound. Different players handle faulty media in different ways. Lets not go down a rabbit hole without establishing there is actually a problem to deal with.
Playing in Gnome video the clip plays perfectly, but playing in Linux Kodi on my PC the first second is heavily corrupted. On my X96 Air the first second is blank where its corrupted - and it skips at 8 secs, but I ain’t prepared to accept anyone word for this been an uncorrupted file.
There are two problem areas in the film when playing back with my N2, VLC plays those areas fine.
Thank you all for testing the clip.
Sadly I don’t have the full disc, only a remux, so I can’t check with eac3to. I’ve checked my hard drive for errors and I even downloaded the same film to a different hard drive just to be sure. After seeing the full film and clip play fine in the problem areas in VLC my biggest concern was something could be wrong with my N2, which is why I asked if some one could test the clip.
I just tested the clip with my Rock64 using LibreELEC and that also has a jump. I would lean to it being a problem with the file. I find it interesting how the TX5 Plus is able to play the clip without a problem and the C2 handles it better than the N2.
Odroid C2 is using the older 3.14 kernel. With these decoders you always have to work around different issues. You fix one file but it causes issues with other files. So there is always compromises. If the whole movie only has 2 little jumps that are caused buy a bad encode I think we can live with it.
I appreciate the sentiment to have a perfect device but it will probably never be perfect.
i have the feeling that libreelec gets more unstable the older it gets. and unfortunately, somehow there is no feedback of the dev’s.
anyone else having problems with some movies?
here is a log snippet:
I take that you are in part referring to your earlier post regarding the same issue back in February?
I think more information is required about the type of file you are playing (posting a sample may be useful) and looking at posts regarding this particular type of error elsewhere on the net has indicated potential network or buffering issues, so knowing the source of the files (local, network etc) might be of use.
I have the feeling some users having troubles with network, bad encoded files etc. but they want to fix it in software.
CE is very stable, I watch videos every day in my living room using Odroid N2, my wife is watching videos every day in sleeping room using S905X box.
Files are stored on my NAS, connect with gbit network.
I believe some of Your video files are bad encoded
@Tim_Taylor have the feeling people respond to something and do not even read the posting but answer stuff that is totally unrelated or is already answered.
to answer a few things: this file was playing a couple of month before perfectly fine (iirc i watched that movie last december, no problems at all).
that file, as noted in the log, is from a usb drive - no network involved at all!
that file also plays perfectly fine on my laptop and on my desktop with vlc.
@Ray its an odroid n2, so its ng. if you tell me what information exactly you need (and best would be how to provide it), i can give it to you.
Sorry if you feel that way but the info provided so far was not enough and going ahead claiming there is no answer from devs is a bit far stretched. We need more. Are you still with the same build as months ago?
