i already have an advanced settings file on my xbox used to display a custom startup video. can i add the code from the first post to this without it affecting the video and still get the cache settings set correctly?"

ive only ever noticed the cache full problem with my veetle plugin but after a few displays saying the cache is full it just disapears and plays as normal

Excellent work - really a game changer for streaming with plugins.

THANK YOU!!


One quick question; is there any reason this is disabled by default that we should be aware of? For instance, what if it buffers past the available size of /Z?

<advancedsettings>
<playlisttimeout>360</playlisttimeout>
<network>
<cachemembuffersize>0</cachemembuffersize>
<autodetectpingtime>500</autodetectpingtime>
<curlclienttimeout>500</curlclienttimeout>
<curllowspeedtime>500</curllowspeedtime>

also

Code: Select all

<algorithmdirtyregions>3</algorithmdirtyregions>
<nofliptimeout>0</nofliptimeout>
</gui>
is not for XBMC4Xbox. These are XBMC for linux/windows etc settings.

Is this killer feature enabled by default with the 3.3 release or will we need to enable it by advancedsettings?

If it is not enabled by default, can you give the reasoning behind making it an "advanced feature"?

Off topic. I'm both excited and bummed about the new release. Excited to try out all the new goodies, bummed because I have a lot of boxes to update ;) Userdata folders will transfer fine to the new build I hope!

sorry, which killer feature ? if you mean setting it to 0, then that has its own problems, and in most cases, default cache size works well.

you should set dvdplayer as your default player. mplayer is unsupported. You are also trying to play a SWF file - this is not a video stream. This has no relation to the cache etc.

I did mean setting it to 0. What problems are you referring to beside the risk of running out of HDD space while streaming

2GB limit. stuttering due to HD speed, constant disk access during playback.

in this case, i guess not. the file it gave you was not a video stream.

Forgot to mention this but if you want to easily add the advancedsettings.xml for caching to HDD I've added it on my xbmc server. It's easy enough to make a file yourself but if you do want to use the one I made just do the following:

go to filemanager and add a source then type in http://whufclee.myftp.org

In there you'll find a section called TWEAKS and you should find the cache to HDD .xml file in there, just copy to Q:\userdata\

thanks guys, i watch a movie the other night, cache was nice, movie ran great with no buffering or anything movie cutting off, and you need the latest version of xbmc4xbox for thoses who dont know :), i had a 3.3.1 so i updated to the newest version and worked just fine, no changing the settings in your GUI(inside xbmc4xbox settings) only grab lees file from his ftp, thanks guys again :)

Max cache size is only limited by how much space you have on your HDD, you don't need to set any manual numbers as it's deleted on playback so is only temporary storage.
