raspbmc cli

Mon Aug 19, 2013 8:27 am

Hi, I have a video which does not run very well under raspbmc (audio but no video). A suggestion I received was to initiate the video from the command line and see what errors appear.

I can drop out of the media center to the command line. Which program should I be running? EG.
$ xbmc.bin file.avi
thanks

Shouldn't this be enough info for the other thread (in the RaspBMC forum ?) already ?
I can't see anything wrong. (That does not say much , though. )
