playing HD videos

Mon Aug 08, 2016 11:45 am

hello there,
I am using raspberrt pi 3 and raspbian jessie. There is no problem to play videos with omxplayer but there is no GUI. I found a basic GUI for omxplayer but it's so poor. and also some subtitle characters does not show.
I have tried to open videos with SMPlayer and VLC but hardware accelaration does not work. so CPU usage is getting more than 90% even does not play the video. I have tied to configure video output driver to vdpau, gl3 etc.. but couldn't work.
My question is, is it possible to play HD videos with another popular video player like SMPlayer, VLC? do I need to make any configuration?

Thanks and best regards
Tanzer

Have you tried " omxplayerGUI - GUIs for omxplayer including an audio player, a video player and a media player frontend." ??

Rather than negativity think outside the box !

Asus ChromeBox 3 Celeron is my other computer.

Hi there,
Thank you for your recommendation first. Yes I have tried it. it's not perfect but works anyway. interface is very poor and i have problem with subtitle codepages, so this is why I am looking for better interfaced a video player.
Also tried KODI but it can't open some of videos

Kodi is the most fully featured media player you will get. I suspect if kodi can't play a file then nothing will.
Perhaps you can post the mediainfo and/or debug log of a file that didn't play with kodi?

Post a debug log.
Either you are playing files that hardware doesn't support (perhaps 10-bit h.265 or h.265) in which case no media player will work.
Or you have a configuration issue (perhaps insufficient gpu_mem assigned).
In either case provide some info if you want to know what the issue is.

Code: Select all

This is too little gpu memory. We recommend 256M for Pi2/Pi3 running Kodi.

hello there,
I found how to change gpu memory to 256.
https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentati ... fig-txt.md
adding gpu_mem=256 to last line is working.

If you are using the Pi predominately for Kodi, the a dedicated distribution like LibreELEC or OSMC is strongly recommended.
That would have settings like gpu_mem set appropriately out of the box, and in general everything is configured for the best experience.

Hi there you could just try this: viewtopic.php?f=66&t=199545
and use chromium as your videoplayer, it plays full hd without lag :)

The video encoding is AVC1 , I think this is not supported by OMXPLAYER.
Though you have given all infos, it will be helpful if you give output of the command...

Code: Select all

omxplayer -i video_name.mov
