Bump, any progress on this one? Drives us nuts :(

 

All mk3d movies played with internal player in 2D freeze after 26 minutes. This doesn't happen with any other media file.

 

This happens with direct play, no transcoding, with internal player. Other players including mpv.exe played outside of Theatre play mk3d fine (in 2D of course).

I'm not yet sure about this but investigating.

Definitely a weird one. I haven't gotten around to running the tests that I wanted. I'll try and run it on one of my other machines.

Have you tried with multiple  mpv versions?

We tried another two from the daily builds. This must be something with the way mpv.exe is interacting with Theatre via IPC.

 

I can provide a sample movie if need be.

 

When mpv runs via Theatre, does it read its own mpv.conf file or is that being bypassed by Theatre?

 

My NUC runs an i5-4250U.

I should test mpv as an external player. And see if that makes a difference. And duplicate all of the Theater, config. I'll copy over all of the scripts, too.

as an external player in Theatre? that's a great idea!

Yeah, I already have mpv and powerdvd set as external players. But I need to duplicate everything that the internal player is exposed, to.

Well here's something interesting. Using mpv as an external player, playback ends after just a few minutes. I'm playing directly in the same player (as standalone), right now. I'm already past that point. I want to prove it will still play past the 26 min, mark. Stay tuned....

 

UPDATE:

Still playing, long past the 26 min mark, in the standalone.

 

 

UPDATE 2:

Here's the mpv log when using mpv as an external player and it stopping after few minutes. As far as I can see, it just stops. Luke, could this be stream integrity just failing?

 

UPDATE 3: 

I just tried playing a 4k movie with mpv as an external player. It stopped at a few minutes, too.

 

UPDATE 4:

Playing the 3D MVC movie in PowderDVD 18 as an external player, it played.

I know that mpv have added and revised some APIs. Could this have something to do with it? I'll test using the last release, as an external player, and see what happens.

 

UPDATE:

 

Even with that version, it just ends a few minutes in, as an external player. So there's something happening with that.

Is it the way Theatre is streaming the file to mpv? or is it the config Theatre uses for mpv?

For the external players, the config comes from that player. So this would seem to be something to do with how Theater feeds the player. I would say, both internally and externally. Luke of course would have to chime in on that.

That sounds like the app stopped sending progress reports so the server shut the stream down...

The thing is, that it happens at exactly the same point, every time. It's an earlier point, but the same thing happens with the MVC movies with the internal player. And if it's direct playing, shouldn't the server let the player handle everything?

No because, in this disconnected world, devices can just disappear and we don't want the server continuing to serve up a stream to something that's not there.

So maybe more resilience is needed?

No, we need to be sure the app is sending proper progress reports if that is the issue.

 

My hypothesis was just that - based on nothing but your description of the problem.  If the app is not sending progress reports in some situation, then the server is doing what it should and the issue in the app needs to be addressed.

 

HOWEVER, we don't know that is the issue here - its just something to look at.

 

When this happens, does the server dashboard report proper progress of the video?

I'll have to check on that. I think so, but I'm not sure.

Actually, based on how this works now, you won't be able to tell.  Sorry.
