Problem: Packed B frames fix missing in XBian?

Frodo RC2 and RC3 plays old SD movies very choppy
Hey
I really enjoy this great piece of software Smile I've been running XBMC since start on the good old xbox in 2001-2002 Smile

Now my config is a RPi 512 with XBian A4 and XBMC Frodo RC3.

My problem is that both RC2 and RC3 of Frodo plays my old avi files very choppy.The logs don't say much, but it plays the files choppy for about a minute, then just stops. I can stop playback and go back to menu.

I play them from nfs drive.
I've been testing different settings in resolutions, sync etc in settings, but to no avail.

But: big Full HD movies (15GB +) plays flawless and perfect.. no probs at all..!

As soon as i revert back to RC1 it's no problem at all, so 'll stick with RC1 until fix / reinstall.

Some info about an avi file:

RE: Frodo RC2 and RC3 plays old SD movies very choppy
I think the xbian crew can't do much here as this is probably an issue of XBMC and/or omxplayer.
The best option in my opinion would be that someone with some knowledge of the XBMC issue tracker system take the following 3 sample files and media infos and opens an issue ticket at XBMC so that it gets investigated by the developers.

Would someone do this?

Problem examples:

RE: Frodo RC2 and RC3 plays old SD movies very choppy
Hey
I posted the same thread in XBMC forum ( http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=150744 ), and got reply that this is most likely because of a fix that they have removed in XBMC : https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/commit/f868fc4808e19bee60d7a83e8aa5f09b3bc861c2

Raspbmc and OpenELEC have fixed this timestamp issue with packed B frames according to the xbmc guys. Will XBian do the same?

Packed B frames fix missing in XBian?
Hey
Please look at this XBMC commit: https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/commit/f868fc4808e19bee60d7a83e8aa5f09b3bc861c2
In RC2 and RC3 of XBMC this causes xvidfiles of this type to have serious playback problems:
http://forum.xbian.org/thread-194.html
http://forum.xbian.org/thread-179.html
http://forum.xbian.org/thread-121.html

According to the commit, the RPi distibutions should have this fix, but maybe not XBian?

Hi Dave

Whilst this bug report was unfortunately already covered elsewhere, I'd just like to say what a great, detailed and helpful report it was!

It will be great to hear from you in future regarding testing XBian if the quality of this bug report is any indication Smile

RE: Packed B frames fix missing in XBian?
Hey
Yep, I'll keep reporting. Unfortunately this bug wasn't solved with the others in the fix, but I've pm'd KoenKK and CurlyMo some sample files to look at. I sliced up one of the avi's for testing Smile

Anyway, I guess the story will continue some here: https://github.com/xbianonpi/xbian/issues/206, but I trust the hard working XBian crew to give it some attention. Man, I'm impressed with those guys Smile

(I work internationally with IT projects myself, so I know the need for detailed reports when something is wrong..)
