Please post here the issues related to this image
For any feedback, do not forget to precise your target.
When issues are related to specific video streams, the best way to report is to send an extract of the faulty video so that I can reproduce and investigate.

First of all, thanks for the great job you´ve done there.
I have briefly checked the WB quad image, and found that external subtitles arent working. I mean, XBMC dosen´t recognize *.srt included in the same folder.

I am using your newest image on an udoo-quad. After a full restart of the board, the playback in xbmc is working fine but when the xbmc is running for a longer time, I only get audio playback.

A restart of xbmc.bin does not solve the problem. I have to reboot the hole system.
The problem exists with all files that I have testet (mainly 1024p/720p h264)
P.S.: I am using a self compiled kernel to have NFS3/4 and BtrFS, so I am not 100% sure that this problem exists in the official version but I have not changed any source.

I have just given a try a external subtitles and they work fine for me (external srt file with same file name as movie).
It is known not to work with UPNP (because xbmc cannot see them, check here) but they work fine with local content, or SMB/NFS shares
For TEST TOOL Ac3 Dolby Digital 5.1ChSoundTest, you are right : It is a divX3 codec which is not played (divx4 and divx5 are correctly played but not divX3) : I think I know what the issue is and should be able to fix it very quickly…February 3, 2014 at 23:02 #521
First no panic : 66°C as a core temp is not dangerous for your device.
Then there is an easy explanation for the difference with ubuntu.
When you launch my image, you automatically launch XBMC and the main page requires permanent GPU activity (especially for displaying the RSS feed) which is largely responsible for the heat dissipation you mention.
If you want to lower temperature you can :
– Stop XBMC (most efficient)
– Disable RSS feed (it will really improve GPU load)
– Move to another page on XBMC GUI

Unfortunately I know the symptoms you describe.
You are faced with a memory allocation failure.
When it happens can you try the following :
First, issue commands
free -m cat /proc/zoneinfo cat /proc/meminfo
And send to me the outputs
Then, issue the command :
echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches
And try again to launch your movie…

I have already noted it in your blog section, but I thought I would write it here again so that everyone knows and can maybe share their experiences related to my issues experienced on my Udoo Quad:
1. Aeon MQ5 Skin(Can’t successfully enable the skin). It automatically reverts back to the default Confluence skin when I try enable MQ5 skin. Anyone else experienced this?
2. Sports-a-holic add-on(part of the mash2k3 repository). XBMC tells me I cannot install this add-on due to missing dependencies. Any idea what it needs to be able to work? Anyone else experienced this?
3. My 1080p movies playback with stutter(flickering of the screen) and eventually cause my Udoo to freeze up completely and reboot is required. Stephan is helping me investigate this already…but has anyone else experienced this with any of their 1080p movies and if so what types of video files were they? To provide you more info about the files I ma having a problem with: One is a 12GB 1080p x264 mkv with DTS. It is the film Prometheus.
Thanks again Stephan for all your hard work and help! and I am interested to hear from the rest of the community if anyone has experienced problems similar to mine and if so compare notesFebruary 4, 2014 at 12:47 #528

Just tried the utilite_yocto_v0.0.4.img.xz on my utilite pro, all that happens is I see a splash screen for wandboard and that’s it. No console output either. Not sure if there is something wrong with the image I downloaded so I’m trying again, just in case I accidentally got the wrong image. Just downloaded and verified the md5:
Will do the install and see what happens this time around.
Thanks for your work!February 9, 2014 at 04:41 #541
Confirmed, I have the same problem after re-trying the utilite image. I get a wandboard.org splash screen and then nothing else.February 11, 2014 at 10:26 #542
thanks a lot for your great work. Im succesfully using your image on my wanboard quad, and it is playing most of my stuff without any jerks. There are just 2 things I recognized:
1. I’m not able to play Ac3 passthrough over Spdif (DTS is working), means I can play the file, but there is no sound. If I turn passtrough off, sound is working perfectly.
2. There is no scaling-method option for SD-Videos, which makes them a little “rough” looking on HD-devices. I guess this is a vpu-driver issue, and therefore you will have probably no influence on this until there is a new driver coming out…
Hope you keep on this really good work!
