Very poor playback

rasplex

#1

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)

Try the 0.1.37 release, available from the rasplex-installer.

Did you overclock?

Did you overclock?



It's using the values in the config file which looks like as light over clock. Should I put it back to stock?

Stock is very very light, you should overclock more. I'm using cpu 950, sdram 450 and core 450 and my bluray rips play fine if i pause it to let it buffer enogh. The network is the problem.

Overvoltage 2. I forgot:-)

Sounds like you should read some other threads regarding bluray and DTS...

Try the 0.1.37 release, available from the rasplex-installer.

The performance and picture quality is much improved for 1080p from 0.1.36. Very close now to my dedicated media player. Great work!

This is still a problem - sadly. But we should be able to fix this in the feature (since XBMC is able to play these files on the RPi).
