.FLV playing audio but not video

Sat Sep 29, 2012 2:41 pm

Hey guys. I'm trying to stream some .flv files to XBMC using an add on under Raspbmc. I am only able to hear audio with no video playing. Is there a work around for this so that I can get both audio and video?

It sounds like the FLV files do not contain valid h.264 data or using a different video codec like VP6 or Sorenson Spark.

Do you have any examples of this problem??

I'm testing the TV3Play app from xbmc. Choose the .no version, and try to play a video under Luksusfellen-> sesong 8.

I found Luksusfellen with the following URL: http://www.viasat4play.no/play/283222/?autostart=true which I believe is the video you're trying to watch on the PI.
From what I can tell the site is using On2's VP6.2 video codec for their video clips this unfortunately is not compatible with the PI's hardware assisted video decoder.
If you find other videos that do not play with XBMC then press 'o' on your keyboard for on screen video diagnostics and check for h.264 video codec - http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Vi ... iagnostics

I have the same problem :( And I was really looking forward to watch a lot of great TV shows with my Raspberry.

Would it help to buy the VC1 codec?

Thank you!

Not to play VP6 files.
