omxplayer stopping before file end

Fri Aug 10, 2012 1:31 am

Since switching from the old official Debian Stable to the new official Raspbian, it seems that the bundled omxplayer on Raspbian stops playing some minute(s) before the end of a video file. This is annoying on long videos and makes short videos useless.

Are other people having this issue? Is there anything I can do to fix it short of switching back to the old image?

Hi all,

I have installed the latest Raspbian from http://downloads.raspberrypi.org/images ... spbian.zip
and I did an upgrade:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
Omxplayer stops playing some minute(s) before the end of a video file.
You can reproduce the problem using the video file from http://downloads.dvdloc8.com/trailers/d ... railer.zip
Omxplayer outputs the following error in the log file:

Code: Select all

00:00:00 T:0   DEBUG: OMX_AUDIO_ChannelLF
00:00:00 T:0   DEBUG: OMX_AUDIO_ChannelRF

I thought this problem was fixed. Is it fixed?

If you meant "seconds", this bug should be fixed in the latest version, which you can download from here: http://omxplayer.sconde.net/

Hi,

I am still seeing this problem. I am trying to use OMXPLAYER to play mp3 files from my home automation system. The files play to the end from chromium web browser but stop around 1s early on omxplayer.

I have updated and upgraded but this has not helped.

Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks
