Re: Subtitles broken for VLC in fullscreen

OK, no overscan problem. Which kind of subtitles do we speak about? 1) Embedded into the video stream (file)? 2) External subtitle files? And there are different formats, e. g. idx/sub (image based) srt (completely text based). I have tested both and both work for me. I'm using srt subtltle files in...

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 is not working when connected to the computer.

Dear Sir/Madam, Hello my name is Yichen Zhang, I am a senior student and I got this Raspberry Pi from a competition as the price, so this is why I can only get in touch with you instead of the seller for this product.

There is nothing to fix.
You can simply use X11 output without MMAL splitter. But then you will loose all the advantages of the layered output.

Re: RPi4 video performance

From a desktop terminal .MP4 play fine but for .MTS and .VOB just comes back with 'Have a Nice Day ;)' so I guess don't recognize the format. I'm still using the MMAL setting and just typing 'OMXPLAYER filename' so don't know if that matters. Also VLC runs MTS from CLI but still slide show and hund...

"MMAL x11 splitter for Raspberry Pi" is one of the video output modes of VLC (on the RPi). If you would ever have tried to configure VLC, you woukd have seen it (Settings, Video) Well I did finally try that (IDK why not before with only about 4.5 trillion setting combinations).

Re: Rasbian mpv player

mpv is in the repository. It does not seem to support hardware acceleration.
Comparing it to other software-only video players (based on mplayer) it's slow to start and I don't see any reason for using it.

Na ich würd schon gern mit der Raspberry das ganze lösen :) Aber interessant.
Das Modem war per serieller oder USB-Schnittstelle (weiß ich nicht mehr genau) an den Rechner angeschlossen. Das könnte im Prinzip auch ein RPi sein. Aber, wie gesagt, das ist Technik von vorgestern.

Ich habe früher ein Voice-Modem für sowas benutzt, also ein Telefonmodem, das Voice-Funktionen unterstützt. Das hing dann an einem Telefonanschluß. Ich weiß aber nicht, ob es die Dinger überhaupt noch gibt.

Re: RPi4 video performance

Maybe I should have been more clear and mentioned standard Raspbian Buster installation. After reading your entire thread on that it was still not obvious to me what MMAL X11 or a 'splitter' is. Lots of outdated and conflicting info. Half hour Googling didn't help much either. Admittedly my fault n...

Re: Which Pi do i need to watch 1080p video from a satellite tuner?

UHD in H264 is not possible on any Rpi.
Otherwise I'm watching Sat. TV for many years on all of my RPis, SD and HD. I've got a USB-Sat-Receiver connected to one of my RPis and stream any content into my network, including complete transponders.

Can you try

to see what it is really set to?
Zero, as it has been set.

I've also tried to set /proc/sys/vm/vfs_cache_pressure to 50 (minimal value, default = 100, max = 200) without success.

On Stretch and Jessie this all worked as it should.
