#11347 closed Patch - Bug Fix (fixed)

DVD playback sometimes flickers when jumping from a still to a video sequence.

Priority: minor Milestone: 0.27
Component: MythTV - DVD Playback Version: Master Head
Severity: medium Keywords:

Jumping from a still frame (or just allowing it to timeout) to a video sequence sometimes doesn't unpause video. This leads to bad flickering when the video buffers are forcibly drained. It appears that this only occurs under certain circumstances:

  • A video decoder in no additional buffering (i.e *NOT* VDPAU)
  • Still frame and video sequences in menu domains but not in cells marked as menus.
  • When the timing is right!

The flag 'dvd_stillframe_showing' was explicitly set to 'false' here, which prevents the check at the end of MythDVDPlayer::VideoLoop? from unpausing playback. The attached patch ensures MythPlayer::UnpauseVideo? is called at this point, matching the behaviour of the check at the end of the method.

See also the sample 'StillToVideoToMenu?.iso' in stuartm's DVD repository.
