Oh, yeah, thanks for the extra s, I will keep it for later ... :lol:

I'm just recompiling it with --enable-alsaplayer , then I will test with multiple folder.

Ah, here I can use the extra s folder -> folders .... :wink:

I might speak english does not mean I can write it down. My mother was an english teacher so I think that must have been my problem

Argh, and I also hat to install alsaplayer-daemon. Now it does not complain about alsa anymore and the menu also shows up .... took me 2h to solve that.

BTW: no trouble with multiple folders in Audio

Modifed the howto to inculded the alsa info.

Did you try compling with the --enable-opengl? I wonder if it would help with proformance?

Is you media local or remote?

No I did compile like your ./configure line but including --enable-alsaplayer thats all. I don't think opengl will help here. But XBMC did manage to convert it to OpenGL-ES, so maybe we can look into theire source.

My media is locale. Did you try to add your media via the no_watch option in the config file?

I tried both no_watch and normal. Did not make any differnce to me. It was reall strange, my movie folder with 2000 movies ran real smooth, but the folder with all the tv series only 200 it struggled.

What benifits would openGl-ES give us? I wonder how much work would be in it?

What I would really like to do is get the meida player like XMBC. I understand they are using omxplayer, but must have a better interface or some overlay going on. https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/tree/master/xbmc/cores/omxplayer

Do you know of a good way for me to find where the lag is coming from for my navigation problem with folders?

Benefit would be to save RAM because you do not need X and LXDE / lxterminal running, like framebuffer it runs on console.
I do not know if OpenGL-ES is quicker than SDL and if it would speed up browsing your TV-series.

Could the problem you encounter be caused by IMDB searches? Is it only in graphical mode?

EDIT: I have just mounted my USB-HD with mpeg2 movies recorded by a dbox2 (*.ts file). Plays smooth and even though I still have option "-o hdmi" in GenericPlayerOpts I have sound on the 3,5mm analoge jack :D

So who knows any openGL-ES, I personally no nothing. I have read the it is just a subset of opengl so it might be we are not using that set of opengl calls anyway. So naicheben you know anything about opengl or do we need to bug someone to help us with porting?

Yea it is only in Graphical mode. Where do I kill the imdb searches? but why oniy folders?

Sweet with the audio it must just play out the 3.5mm jack all the time.

P.S. I code like a monkey with no arms using his forhead to mash the keyboard. It does not work as well as you first might think. :D

lol

I'm not a coder either, so I guess if lorenzodes does not have a raspberrypi we will never learn what benefits there really are by using opengl-es....

Nevertheless it's usable for me. I allways compare it to the speed of a pentium mobile 733MHz with 128MBRAM ....

I am sure lorenzodes must be having a birthday coming up soon or maybe some German holiday where people give each other raspberry Pi's?

Maybe a PM to ask nicely might work

An new year - a new attempt

So far I got MMS running and audio output is selectable between Logilink-USB-Soundcard and HDMI at runtime via MMS Settings. I had to buy a soundcard because the analoug audio is a p.i.t.a.
However, I don't understand ir_keytable or how you setup the "remote" in /lib/udev/rc_keytables.
I want to use lirc and rpi_gpio with a 0,77 Cent IR-Receiver.
After installing ir-keytable I only have a folder rc_keymaps not rc_keytables.

Could you pleas point me in the right direction?

BTW: I experienced problems when having multiple folders in "Movies" via NFS now. It's really slow especially when you go a folder back; sometimes stalled, but I guess mms then builds preview pictures.

Ah, I just found this (again) and understand now how to setup al key-config file.
[url]
http://www.vdr-portal.de/board18-vdr-ha ... omxplayer/[/url]

For testing mine looks like this: (/lib/udev/rc_keymaps/omxplayer)

Code: Select all

DECREASE_VOLUME:-
INCREASE_VOLUME:+
SEEK_BACK_SMALL:down
SEEK_FORWARD_SMALL:up
SEEK_BACK_LARGE:left
SEEK_FORWARD_LARGE:right
EXIT:esc
PAUSE:p


So in /usr/bin/omxplayer.sh it is:

Code: Select all

#!/bin/sh
lxterminal -e 'omxplayer -o hdmi --key-config /lib/udev/rc_keymaps/omxplayer "'${3}'"'
