as the subject suggests, I am having trouble getting my movies to play in xbmc.
I have seen this has been a problem for a few people but no one has really got a definitive answer. For a lot of you, the rpi is a $35 computer....Not in Australia, mine set me back in excess of $170 after the powersupply, wifi, case, sd card etc. So I'm not happy it won't do the one thing I bought it for.
Out of the 20 or so movies I have on my hdd, only 2 of them seem to play well enough to watch.
They are all .mkv and .mp4. They will start to play, some go on for minutes before having problems, others only seconds. Some have minutes between freezes/hangs/pauses, others only seconds. It seems to be a random event. But! The movies it does play well, always play well.
My specs are as follows.
Openelec Xbmc Frodo 12.2
5v 3a psu & 5v 2a psu
powered usb hub that does not backfeed
sandisk class 10 sdcard
wd my passport usb hdd 500gb exFat
I have overclocked and changed the gpu_mem balance in the hopes the would fix it to no avail.
Please, please, please offer any advice you may have. (explanations are muchly appreciated too)
