Can I expect RPI2 to play this video?


If that is just a direct Blu-ray rip then yes, it should play. Have you tried it ?

I have, but I am getting lots of errors and there is no synchronization between audio and video (delay).

Have you tried enabling omxplayer in settings -> Video ->Acceleration ?

I haven’t, but I will when I came home and than report back the situation.

I tried, but there is still synchronization problem. :frowning:

Is this the same issue you previously posted about??

It’s alike, but now there is a delay but no reported errors.

Did you ever try the mpeg2 codec? What do you mean by “alike?”

AVC is a type of H.264, so no codec license is needed to play it.

The codec (AVC) isn’t a problem for the RPi2, but the high bit-rate might be, depending on how you are feeding the stream to the Pi. Also, what are you doing with the AC3 stream? It’s passthrough?

I have started a new thread with a sample video. Popcornmix has helped a bit but than he abandoned a thread. Sample video that is out of the sync on RPI2 and osmc September-2

Is the M2TS encrypted? I believe that Milhouse found hangs can occur with AACS libbluray. I would try playing an unencrypted BD.

Does it play at all? Can you describe your symptoms better?



if you look at the thread Sample video that is out of the sync on RPI2 and osmc September-2

you can find there a sample video and logs.
Popcornmix has suggested to remove “core_freq=450” from config.txt which helped a lot. There are still errors in logs, but video is synchronized with audio.
