Postby sima » Fri Jan 02, 2009 1:54 pm

Yes, mplayer crashed and mms complains because the child process (i.e. mplayer) ended abruptly.

Thank You for your quick answer!

..allright, i did a little investigating and tried mplayer, xine,even vlc. All with the same result: chrash and Konsole give me
same failure again.

Now i tried exactly the same command mms gives out in Terminal:

e.g.: /usr/bin/xine -f /mnt/.../.../example.avi

...and everything works fine...!! ::confused::

is there something i miss?

Thanks for your help!


PS: the media-files are on a smb-Server which is mounted under /mnt/...

What version of mms is that( paste the full output of mms -v). Also, can you see if those crashes have generated some coredump?

Version: as specified thru "mms -v":

My Media System: 1.1.0 rc8
Configuration: --disable-fancy-audio --disable-epg


I cant see any coredump... but to be honest, maybe i search in the wrong corner..


By the way im on a powerpc-based system... but since everything else works, i dont think thats the point.

You should use ulimit to ensure core-dumps are allowed.

does sh -c "xine -f -p mymovie.avi" work?
