DVD menus freezing in episode section since updating to v31

Post by Robert Worrall » Sun Mar 29, 2020 9:10 pm

Hello,

Since updating to version 31 DVDs crash at the dvd episode selection screen. The output just before crashing is:

2020-03-29 22:01:05.111062 I AFD: Opened codec 0x7f81a406d5c0, id(DVD_SUBTITLE) type(Subtitle)
2020-03-29 22:01:05.111076 I AFD: Opened codec 0x7f81a4092440, id(DVD_SUBTITLE) type(Subtitle)
2020-03-29 22:01:05.111083 I AFD: codec AC3 has 2 channels
2020-03-29 22:01:05.111315 I AFD: Opened codec 0x7f81a406ee80, id(AC3) type(Audio)
2020-03-29 22:01:09.698427 W OpenGLInterop: Not a valid hardware frame
2020-03-29 22:01:10.279233 I OpenGLInterop: Deleted 1 textures in 1 groups

is anyone else having this issue?

thanks

Rob.

I'm not seeing any crashes with DVD playback.

Can you get any more details?

Firstly a complete 'mythfrontend -v playback' log and ideally a backtrace when it crashes - are you using a packaged version or building from source? if from source, can you produce a debug build for the backtrace?

As a last resort, what DVD is it?

Thanks and regards
Mark

Hi Mark,

It seems to happen regardless of the DVD. Running the frontend with the playback log shows a number of repeated output:

020-04-28 22:37:15.670107 I OpenGLInterop: Deleted 1 textures in 1 groups
2020-04-28 22:37:15.670435 I VDPAUInterop: Setup deinterlacer '2x VDPAU Basic'
2020-04-28 22:37:15.672483 W DVDPlayer: In DVD Menu: No video frames in queue
2020-04-28 22:37:15.682620 W DVDPlayer: In DVD Menu: No video frames in queue
2020-04-28 22:37:15.692769 W DVDPlayer: In DVD Menu: No video frames in queue
2020-04-28 22:37:15.702912 W DVDPlayer: In DVD Menu: No video frames in queue
2020-04-28 22:37:15.713046 W DVDPlayer: In DVD Menu: No video frames in queue

This prompted me to try another render than VDPAU, which has fixed the problem, weird as I haven't had an update the NVIDIA driver. I might be something to do with the plasma desktop as I am on KDE neon. However when using another rendered the playback is now slowing. I am going to have a play about with the compositor and NVIDIA settings to see if this fixes the problem. In the meantime if you have any suggestions I would be grateful for any help.

Rob.

Sorry, Mark. I also meant to say this from the ubuntu 31 repository.

Rob

To be clear - are you only seeing the issue with VDPAU enabled?

Can you post the full output from 'mythfrontend -v playback' from a crash?

thanks and regards
Mark
