I have just bought a Rev2 Pi and installed 0.1.36 on it - as well as purchasing the MPG2 and VC1 codecs (although i am unable to check they are working which might be half the issue here). Video playback of my blu-ray rips is terrible though.
If i pull up the stream info the video Mb/s rarely goes above 20Mb/s but the CPU0 stays maxed at 100%. The video plays for a second, then stops for a second, then starts again.
I appreciate blu-ray rips are a challenge but the Pi is supposed to be able to decode at 40Mb/s for h264 files
I am running a Sandisk HCSD 10 8gb SD card (in case that is relevant)
