RE: DVD files crash
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

RE: DVD files crash
I understand you have added your codec licences to be able to play MPEG2?

@rikardo1979

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

RE: DVD files crash
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

Code:
deb mirror://apt.xbian.org/mirror.txt      stable  main rpi2-jessie
deb mirror://apt.xbian.org/mirror.txt  staging main rpi2-jessie
### deb mirror://apt.xbian.org/mirror.txt  devel   main rpi2-jessie
(sample file is for RPi2)

and then running following commands:

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

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

RE: DVD files crash
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
Please revert to the previous version.

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