Re: XBMC running on Raspberry Pi

<t>I really need that R-Pi version with Digital Audio showed on the  last XMBC news, which one is it ?<br/> <br/> What is the maximum bitrate supported, we see that Big Buck Bunny is around 10mb/s but does it work for let’s say 50mb/s ( which should cover everything including Blu-ray ) or is it too ...

Re: Can It handle Blu-ray playback ?

Because  I don't have a HDMI AV receiver but one who can use S/PDIF and It works just fine so I don't plan on spending 500$ for an HDMI one ?

Re: Can It handle Blu-ray playback ?

<t><br/> <br/> SPDIF would only be feasible for stereo LPCM, or if the audio was decoded then re-encoded on-board (requiring another encoding license in addition to decoding) due to the bitrate limitations of SPDIF.<br/> <br/> <br/> Not only stereo LPCM. You can bitstream DTS and Dolby Digital throu...

Re: Can It handle Blu-ray playback ?

<t><br/> Yep the audio is analogue.  The adaptor you link to is specific for supported hardware, I wouldn"t expect you"d get enough control of the audio output in order to change it into a suitable digital signal to use that.<br/> <br/> However, there is an I2S audio digtial output via one of the GP...

Re: Can It handle Blu-ray playback ?

<r>These are very interesting comments ! Nice to know that the GPU has the power to decode Blu-ray. I just read that at first the hardware decodding will be available in a home-made player and then in long term maybe gstreamer.<br/> <br/> Unfortunately that means XBMC ( mplayer ) will never be a via...

Re: Can It handle Blu-ray playback ?

<t><br/> I can"t be sure (only going from what I read) but the GPU is powerful enough (it"s a media player SoC, as used in the Roku media player I believe).  I"ll let a beta board owner confirm it though, as clearly I can"t.<br/> <br/> <br/> Oh nice to know, I'll look into it.<br/> <br/> <br/> I"m n...

Re: Can It handle Blu-ray playback ?

Thanks for your answer. Yes I know it can handle 1080p but there is a world between a 1080p trailer which is heavily compressed and a full blu-ray with a really high bitrate. What do you mean about legal side of Blu-ray playback/ripping ? XBMC can playback blu-ray on linux.

Re: Can It handle Blu-ray playback ?

Hello everyone,

I'm really looking forward to playing with the raspberry Pi. I would also like to get one in order to make an XBMC box and was wondering if it can handle full blu-ray playback, or full blu-ray rips or is it too much ?

Thanks in advance,

Gumik
