The latest firmware update for 512mb support seems to break the correct playback of Hi-def H264 Mpeg/TS streams. This used to work with no problems ?

This clip played perfectly before the upgrade.

Before upgrade it was package
omxplayer_0.2.3~git20121013~fb1b02d8_armhf.deb

after upgrade I tried all these versions:

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 5207774 Oct 31 03:55 omxplayer_0.2.1~git20120930~ff1a44ee_armhf.deb
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 5207800 Oct 31 03:53 omxplayer_0.2.2~git20121011~ff1a44ee_armhf.deb
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 5208028 Oct 13 20:29 omxplayer_0.2.3~git20121013~fb1b02d8_armhf.deb
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 5208140 Oct 26 00:34 omxplayer_0.2.3~git20121023~8f6692d8_armhf.deb

All on Raspian.

The clip did play correctly pre firmware upgrade, now it does not.

Also xbmc on a different Pi board now fails to play these files, again it did play they pre firmware upgrade.

Sample of the video, sorry about the slow server.

Sounds similar, especially the stutter. Thanks.

I am experiencing the same problem here. Also several DVB h264 ts streams at 1080i are affect the whole playback is stuttering or freezing.
I have test it with omxplayer and with vompclient, which I am currently porting.
I will try to contact the developer.
