Hello,

I'm sure I've missed something obvious, but here goes;
I have at least two blu-ray disks that won't play in 1.3.0a (i just get a black screen) which did play in release 1.2.3 (with BDHandler). I have others that will play.
I have looked through the logs but not really sure what I'm lookin for.
I have attached them though.

I'd be grateful if someone could have a quick look and see if there is anything obvious to try....

Thanks

    Couldn't see anything wrong in the logs. Please try different video decoder and/or post a samples of the Blu-rays that fail to play -> http://wiki.team-mediaportal.com/User:tourettes/Providing_a_Sample_blu-ray_content

    Thanks for looking tourettes,

    I tried a different video decoders and using graphstudio to see ehats happening I report the following;

    1) I had to change the VC-1 video setting (in blu-ray codec tab) to affect a change in the video codec
    2) LAV as described above (black screen)
    3) "WMVideo Decoder DM0" (black screen)
    4) "Cyberlink VC-1 Decoder (PDVD7.x)" - reports "unable to play: index.bdmv"

    Other things I noticed;
    • I believe the black screen is because the file doesn't actually start (notice the counter on GraphStudio).
    • Filmerit reports that mpurlsourcesplitter.ax, mpadecfilter.ax, mpeg2decfilter.ax are missing. I don't think these are related.
    • Also, when I select "Mediaportal - Audio Renderer" - graphstudio shows it to be unconnected


    Hope the information helps ....

    Edit: I have updated samples of 'Inception'

    One thing you could do (before uploading the samples) is to check what video format all the failing Blu-ray disks have.

    From BDReader....log look for:

    Code:
    24-08-2012 15:22:05.360 [  fc8]   Video    [4113]     VC1
    24-08-2012 15:22:05.362 [  fc8]   Audio #0:[4352] eng DTS-HD Master
    24-08-2012 15:22:05.364 [  fc8]   Audio #1:[4355] jpn AC3

    I have do some test.
    The sample is surely VC1 interlaced and then to make it work with LAV Video (when no using cuvid / intel quicksync) we must use (check) WM9 option in LAV Video codec format setting.
    But it will not work with BDReader (yet), if i didn't check that box on VC1i and play it with LAV Splitter, it does blackscreen.

    So we need to add WM9 to bdreader :p and or you can try to install trial version od PDVD11/12 and try to use that codec :)

    Thanks Sebastiii, Tourettes,

    You are correct, it is exactly the fact that they are VC1.

    So, I followed your suggested settings Sebastiii, and in particular un-checking 'use Microsdoft WMVideo Decoder DM0' in the LAV filter video settings made all the difference.
    Unfortunately my machine is not powerful enough to run blu-ray without hardware accelaration. Very poor performance. :(

    But I know a little more now. :)

    Added limitations to Wiki.

    Should we mantis the 'Add WMV9 code to BDReader'?

    is this fixed as i created and dl latest version from master branch yesterday and i now have a bluray in bdmv file structure which refuses to play and goes to a black screen (johnny English reborn). i have other blu rays which play fine, and as i recall ive tested these before and they never did this, think it was alpha release.
    I am just testing on a laptop until me new system comes, its got an i3 350m with intel hd graphics and 3gb ram windows 7 x64, new specs will be trinity based but thought if there is an issue this may help others.
    I also have a bluray called hereafter and the menu loads but when i hit play the menu screen stays there and the audio somtimes plays and sometimes portal just freezes ?

    using latest lav filters and changed settings to match post further up the thread and tried various other settings.
