#11886 closed Bug Report - General (Unverified)

Certain HD-PVR recordings aren't playing back

Reported by: skd5aner <skd5aner@…> Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: MythTV - Video Playback Version: 0.27-fixes
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


After upgrading to 0.27, a limited number (~10%?) aren't playing back. When I select them in the Watch Recordings screen, the "Please Wait..." dialog box pops up for a longer than normal time (5+ seconds) and then, a single frame is displayed of the video and immediately the "End of Recording" dialog box is shown with delete + rerecord, delete, and save. The video will never play back.

If I copy the recording file as-is in to the video library, it exhibits the same behavior, instantly kicking back to the menu after trying to start playback.

If I do a "dd if=recording.mpg of=brokenplayback.mpg bs=1MB count=20" and copy the first 20MB of the file in to the video library, it'll play back no problem.

Mplayer (MPlayer svn r34540 (Ubuntu)) plays back the original recording just fine with or without vdpau.

I'm attaching a log with -v playback and debug. I'm not seeing this on all HD-PVR recordings, but just a few of them.
