Some videos result in black screen (audio does play)


#1

Hello,

I’m having some playback issues with some files.
Basically some files play fine, some files play audio for ~10 secs but don’t play video at all.

I tried 2 files with debug logging on, one which did work, and one that doesn’t.
Below you’ll find the debug logging and MediaInfo of the appropriate files.

The Files have been named accordingly (WorkingMovie.mkv and Not-WorkingMovie.mkv)

The only real difference between both files is the not working one being 10-Bit, even though I don’t see how this should be a problem.

In VLC both work just fine.

Any feedback or ideas are hugely appreciated :slight_smile:

Can you provide mediainfo for the problematic file?

EDIT: Nvm… Your file is 1080p.10bit.WEBRip.6CH.x265.HEVC…

This cannot be decoded in hardware on the raspberry pi. If you need hevc support you should look into a Vero4k.

Ah, that explains.
then I’ll be going to build something bigger. Thanks!
