moar screen than reality

Sun Dec 07, 2014 9:42 pm

So I have this movie, real letterbox aspect ratio. Left to its own devices, it plays at 1920x800.
Now thinks me, if I hang the edges over the edge of the screen a bit, I can get to the point where it is 1080 high and looks better on the TV.
So I did a bit of calculating and decided how much needed to hang over the edge to fill the height of the screen properly and came up with:-

Code: Select all

omxplayer --win "-336 0 2256 1080" movie.mkv 
Which did exactly what I was wanting. Except that 5 minutes later the pi crashed. I restarted it, and 5 minutes into the movie it just locked up solid again.
I'm running with gpu_mem=256, the movie plays just fine if I just let it do its own thing, none of the logs on the logging machine showed anything untoward, (other than "Transfer to device 6 endpoint 0x1 frame 498 failed - FIQ reported NYET. Data may have been lost."), of which I get very many.
Does anyone have any ideas as to what is happening? I suspect I'm running out of memory but can't confirm it.

I like the cut of your jib, young man, and I hope you get a satisfactory answer to your question. It won't be from me, however. Sorry!
note: I may or may not know what I'm talking about...

Thank you for your encouragement. I'm sure someone will offer up a theory if nothing else. :)
