Wierd. I had the issue with a couple older ATI and NVidia cards and still have it with GT1030's I bought so I could watch my 4K remuxes as well....

 

Soooo frustrating.

 

So is it only with mvc or does it affect the other 3D formats as well? I rip everything as mvc so I have nothing to test with.

Other 3d formats are different

I only have MVC's, no idea if other 3D formats are broken in Theatre.

Here's the log of a successful playback with my GTX 1050, using cuda-copy hardware acceleration. If you guys want to see?

I'm using a NUC, can't do anything about the GPU...

I know, just thought a comparison might show something, Maybe give Luke a clue.

Luke, any progress on this? MPV plays fine the same mk3d files outside of ET but freezes playback after ~26 minutes consistently when MPV is controlled by ET.

 

I believe doofus was able to point us to the parameters difference between ET and stand-alone launching of MPV.

 

Can we do something here? If all fails with MPV, can you provide alternatives that will provide playback resumption?

 

Thanks!

I'm not yet sure what we can do about it. I think this is an exceptional case. @ are you sure the mpv options were exactly the same?

I haven't tested it, lately. I think what I need to do is see if I can make it happen in the standalone, and determine what parameter is causing it. You have a number of parameters in the playbackhandler that don't get used in the standalone. It may be to with the direct use of the hwdec via the API. I'll try hacking it again and see if I can break it, and force it to use the mpv.conf. But because each test takes 26 mins, it's a very long process, that I have to find time, for.

But I am leaning toward the hwdec API being the issue. I've been wrestling with that, in the past. But now that I'm using auto profiles, it hasn't been so much of a concern. I've got a few ideas. I'll test them out, when I get time.

And I'm thinking this thread should be renamed/moved?

What are you suggesting renaming it to?

 

It's really specific to mk3d files played using internal player.

 

Luke, would it be possible to configure all switched externally? are all the MPV switches sent by ET hardcoded? I wonder if we can try different switches and see if we can find a combination that eliminates the issue...

Well this has nothing to do with the server, so maybe change that?

To what and where?

Theater desktop, instead of server. And as it's a Theater issue, it probably should be over there.

Thanks Happy!

 

I'll update the topic as well to specify mk3d.

Today I'm running tests on this. I'm stripping out a whole bunch of things from the playbackhandler, that have to do with video. So far, no change. There isn't much more I can remove. No errors are being reported. It's like the stream just ends. I'm starting to think this has to do with delivery, as opposed to playback handling.

I do see this in the server log, where it says 'unknown profile'. I don't know if that would make a difference?

So it looks like the server thinks that the app just pressed 'stop', which it didn't.

I'm testing again, to get more accurate start/stop times
