Do you have DVD iso's or VIDEO_TS folder on disk?

RE: DVD files crash - hasjee - 12th Mar, 2016 06:16 AM

Both, And all seem to do it. Never had this problem before so my first thought was maybe something went wrong with the latest update or...

RE: DVD files crash - Nachteule - 12th Mar, 2016 07:14 AM

Hmmm, I can confirm the issue - happens also here Sad

Here is a workaround:
If you have an RPi2, you can disable hardware acceleration in Video settings (both OMX and MMAL has to be disabled) before watching DVD's

Thanks for the confirmation and workaround.

I understand you have added your codec licences to be able to play MPEG2?

RE: DVD files crash - Nachteule - 13th Mar, 2016 12:58 AM


If you asked me - sure. License is installed. The issue happens also on Cubox-i/Hummingboard. So it is not a license issue

This issue has been solved. Tested with Rpi1 and Rpi2, both are playing DVD iso files again Smile

A new package xbian-package-xbmc has been built and is available in staging repo

To get it, first you have to enable staging repo in file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/xbian.list

deb mirror://      stable  main rpi2-jessie
deb mirror://  staging main rpi2-jessie
### deb mirror://  devel   main rpi2-jessie
(sample file is for RPi2)

and then running following commands:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install xbian-package-xbmc
sudo stop xbmc;sudo start xbmc

Please test it and report if it also works for you.
Then I'll move this package to stable repo

Wish i could, Im a total noob at this and have no clue how to ad this repo. If anyone else could test it that be great.

RE: DVD files crash - hasjee - 24th Mar, 2016 05:33 AM

Could somebody either test this, Or tell me step by step how to do this?

RE: DVD files crash - Nachteule - 24th Mar, 2016 06:18 AM

I already told it how to do it

1: log in to your RPi. This can be done locally (stop Kodi and then login with user xbian/password raspberry) if you have an usb keyboard attached or remote via ssh connection (if you have Windows putty is your friend)
2. edit file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/xbian.list: sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/xbian.list (see my post above) (nano is editor)
3. run the 3 commands (see my post above)

RE: DVD files crash - hasjee - 25th Mar, 2016 03:44 AM

Ok got it done, And can now confirm the playback of the dvd files are back to normal.

RE: DVD files crash - Nachteule - 25th Mar, 2016 07:32 AM

Good news Smile

Thanks for reporting

RE: DVD files crash - hasjee - 18th Apr, 2016 02:28 AM

After i had a few system updates the problem returned.

RE: DVD files crash - Nachteule - 18th Apr, 2016 03:19 AM

Please revert to the previous version.

Unfortunately this commit was lost during last rebase. It is already fixed but package has not yet built.
