some .webm files not play

Post by RextheC » Fri Feb 07, 2020 11:53 pm

I rarely had a file that was not played in xbmc (if resolution was not too high)
Only .flv files had make me some trouble few years ago.. At least it worked when i deleted a codec file in dvd player.

Now some of my .webm container files dont play?!
I think that the audio codec in it is causing problems.
I dont want to convert all the files :?


Any ideas. Hope so :)
Thanks

Do they play if you simply copy / rename to .mkv?

I have renamed once of those .webm files to:
.mkv/.mp4/.avi/.wmv/.mpg/.mpeg/.flv but unfortunaly that didnt work.
I changed some options with dvd player (full codec support etc.) and
also video cache settings - but no luck :?

Some .webm files play well - others not.
CPU and RAM looks ok

Could you give us a debug log at pastebin.com so we can have a look? thanks.

Thank you, created an issue as it appears might be a limitation of ffmpeg, not sure whether an update would fix it, that was @Buzz's expertise area.
