It has gone very quiet, I think people are sticking with one build. If its working for them which most of the builds are then it seems people aren't updating and posting problems here.
I'm waiting for an update that addresses the black boarder problem, selecting the option to remove black boarders does nothing at the moment.

You can get prebuilt images from:

Instructions for mounting an image to get the KERNEL and SYSTEM files for updating are here:

Openelec works very well even though it isn't a final release yet. Even CEC works now. I'm using it as a set-top box and am very impressed at it's stability.

Yeah, working nicely for me too. Does seem to freeze occasionally, particularly after adding a stack of new files to the library, but I'm working on that.

CEC is the one thing I haven't yet got to work, but I suspect that's an issue with either the TV or my brain rather than the Pi.

Hi,

sorry, was enjoying the sun last week here in switzerland, and was before on vacation for 3 weeks... so it was a bit more silent on github then normally :-)
most build issues should be fixed already so the build should work.

Re: OpenELEC meets Raspberry Pi - part 1 (XBMC)

I have two problems with all the XBMC builds I have tried:

1) Not gapless playback. I mostly play from a NAS, but it didn't help to place the files locally either.
2) Problems with scanning the database. If I scan the whole music folder, it will stop after a few albums. And it skips most of the albums with mp3 files, but not all of them. If I scan folders one by one afterwards, it will still skip most mp3 files, but will be fine with mp4 or flac.

Since this happens in both OpenElec, Raspbmc and the Raspian XMBC build, I suppose that the problem lies in XBMC itself. Has anyone else experienced this?

Actually, I have achieved gapless playback in one of my OpenElec builds on a 4 GB card, but not the newest build I have on an 8GB build.

Regarding scanning failing ...
Are there any clues in the XBMC log?
Do you use a particular program to add ID3 tags to your MP3 files?
- if yes, then perhaps the way it does it is causing problems so try to retag one failing file using something else

There are lots of error lines in the XBMC log. But I don't know how to read it. It reads something like this:

I am using mostly mp3tag to tag my mp3 files, using ID3v2.3. I know that some players have problems with ID3v2.4, so my files don't have that. I have tried to retag an album with Foobar2000, but that didn't help. I have also checked if the filenames are too long, and shortened them if they were.

Hello trondis23 ,

I have the same problem, I can't scan my music database. I have a Nas too. Mine is the Dlink dns-320. what's yours?

It was working nice before with Xbmc on a laptop and my Nas.

should be solved (afaik) with the last build from:
http://sources.openelec.tv/tmp/image/openelec-rpi/

this is/was a problem with xbmc's last code and happens on prereleases. thats why OpenELEC dont release any stable releases (and betas, RCs...) for RPi until XBMC is released with RPi support.

Can you enable debug and post a xbmc.log (e.g. to pastebin) when the jpeg decode is taking 10 seconds.

I'm not familiar with Linux, I've only used XBMC the old Xbox times and in Windows ...so please bear with me

...so I put the latest OpenELEC in the sd card and it seems to work except for 1080p playback. It's intermittent every few seconds.
I'm currently on r11705 and I've tried r11372, r11694, and r11698 and none of them have smooth 1080p playback.

I saw Doktor-X's post about r10902 being faster, but I was unable to find an sd card image of that version ...so I just tried replacing the system and kernel from OpenELEC-RPi.arm-devel-20120510071814-r10902.tar ....and efectivelly they allow me to play 1080p video. Unfortunately, the video from some add-ons Like Revision3 and YouTube will not play properly. The scren goes dark and you can hear some sound that becomes a crazy crackling noise

Any suggestions?

for revision3 you have to go in .xbmc/addons/plugin.video.revision3/default.py and in this file you will on line 269 find

Code: Select all

xbmc.Player(xbmc.PLAYER_CORE_DVDPLAYER).play(purl, listitem)
simply change it to

Code: Select all

xbmc.Player(xbmc.PLAYER_CORE_AUTO).play(purl, listitem)
if your not familiar with linux and how to use vi you can use filezilla to connect to the pi when is running and download this default.py file and edit it using notepad and then replace it on pi

Hi, can you tell me how did you achieved gapless playback please?
