omxplayer doesn't play HD video from DVB-T

Sun Feb 03, 2013 9:06 pm

omxplayer on my RPi can't play HD video (H.264) from DVB-T smoothly, it freezes a lot. Can somebody try it on its RPi? Here's the video sample (60MB transport stream) which was grabbed with gnutv on my laptop and can be played correctly on PC with mplayer or vlc: ... sp=sharing

I have raspbian 2012-12-16-wheezy, I tried gpu_mem=128 and overclocking, but nothing helped. I'm new to RPi so have no idea how to analyze it. All I can see is that if I run "omxplayer -s", the third number (DecoderFreeSpace) goes quickly to zero. Any ideas? Is omxplayer in raspbian up-to-date or should I try another distro?

I wonder if this is related to this issue here: ... er#p271115

(which I probably should have better posted to this forum...)
