Odyssey - YouTube - Offline Movies - system freezes

Post by radzikpl »

I have never before problems with (latest) Odyssey and AOS 4.1 FE on Pegasos (of course slow). But now when I visit YouTube and start to play video after few seconds computer is frozen. I can make an only hard reset. I have tried Odyssey from Ram Disk but is the same. Freeze is sometimes on the main page of YouTube (without video running). I have the same problem with eg. euronews.com. I have the latest MUI5 (2016R3). Has anyone the same situation?

I have checked it with older MUI from AmigaOS CD, same problem.

I have made a lot of tests and it seems the problem is not on Odyssey side. I have used SMTube and ClipGrab to stream or download videos from YouTube. I have even converted (ClipGrab + FFmpeg) video from mp4 to Avi. The AmigaOS is always frozen. Only one time I was able to play 360p mp4 without the problem, one time for 1000 test. Doesn't matter if this is streamed, downloaded, with MPlayer-GUI, MPlayer CLI with different -vo and -ao always the same effect.
I have decided to try mplayer -nosound and it is working! I have tried to change Sound setting from CMI8738 to Unit 0. Freeze. Now is even freeze if I want to go back from Unit 0 to CMI8738.
Has anyone the same problem or could make some test? Or I have just found a bug in AmigaOS 4.1 Pre?

I have the following issue when using a CMI87838 pciex1 sound card and a Sam460ex.
Don't know if the problems are related .

This does not appear to be a X5000 thread!

And if you are using software called "AmigaOS 4.1 Pre" .....why?

Do you mean AmigaOS 4.1.1 FE for the peg? Maybe you would get better response from the peg threads!

I have this problem with X5000. Should I switch card? Like this one: https://acube-systemsbiz.serversicuro.i ... -card.html?

Well then, I misunderstood. Your first line in the post referred to the PEG. (and never mentioned the x5000)
So you were comparing the performance?

In my x5000, I use a pci-e card CMI 8738 that I bought from AmigaKit.
I have not had the problems you list.

@msalcedo & radzikpl

Maybe the two of you can compare AHI audio settings and video settings and graphics card info + driver version

My configuration:
- GFX: RadeonHD 7700 / driver 2.21
radeon - ranger
radeon - ranger
- SFX: CMI8738 / driver 5.18

I have tested liveforit-mplayerng.lha (6.5.7) and liveforit-mplayer.lha (6.4) from OS4Depot. The funny thing is when I play "XivD AVI video" everything is ok:
Video XivD
Video XivD
But when I took downloaded (ClipGrab) video form YouTube "h264" freeze always:
Video YouTube
Video YouTube
