XMPlayer V0.0.4 : a new version of the libxenon media player
« on: 15 September 2013 à 21:05:14 »

We are proud to announce the arrival of a new XMPlayer version now in version 0.0.4 with many bugfixes This video player is based on Mplayer (an Open Source Media Player), and after a long wait this new version bring Corona video support among a few other fixes...

Why using libxenon to make this? because even if SDK is more user friendly, with libxenon you can exploit the xbox 360 power with more efficiency (without all MS system's cpu usage), as you have seen that with GliGli's N64 emulator. Another cool point about developing on libxenon for a Media Player is the possibility to use NTFS Hard drive and so play files >4Gb which is impossible using the SDK (computer streaming don't count). But remember, you can launch this application using dashlaunch with the 'excecute' feature.

You can follow the project on GitHub.

Here is the changelog :
Quote
Version 0.0.4:
- Fixed: Sometimes when mounting more than 1 USB device, it can crash, now it loads what it can
- Fixed: Overload buffer and memory leak leading to random crashes
- Fixed: Elf files not loading after a video has been played
- Fixed: Audio- and subdelay shows -0 ms
- Fixed: First time you enter osd menu when paused, it removes it again

- Fixed: Mplayer crashes if .rar archive is not supported
- Fixed: Mplayer crashes if .rar archive is valid, but doesn't not contain video
- Changed: Disabled balance in osd menu, it doesn't work
- Changed: Libass disabled as default, beware libass makes xmplayer unstable
- Changed: Subfont from Arial to Dejavu Sans
- Changed: Removed Music and Photos menu for now, not supported
- Changed: "Restart" now restarts XMPlayer
- Added: Support for .rmvb files
- Added: New subtitle shader with selectable color and selectable outline color. Increased stability because libass is not needed
- Added: New Harddrive and DVD icons
- Added: XMplayer stops showing loading screen and shows underlying error message, if it indeed crashed
- Added: Restart to NXE in Global Setting in "Shutdown" option

Having troubles with SD-TV
« Reply #5 on: 09 January 2014 à 14:55:57 »

When I start up XMPlayer on my Xbox 360 connected to TV via SCART it shows picture for a second, and then switches from AV1 (RGB) back to TV (coax). cant keep the TV switched on AV. I guess it has something to do with +5V output on SCART (witch determines if console is turned on or not, so that it automaticaly switches to AV mode on TV). need help. If anyone has a solution pls mail me --> teo.htc.23 @ gmail.com.
Thanks  :)

Hi, I finally managed to run your XMPlayer V0.0.4 on my RGH Xbox 360 and everything`s working fine EXEPT the sound! There is no sound. After researching on the Internet I found some rare forum posts of ppl with similar problems. Someone stated that this problem is because XMPlayer doesn`t support HDMI audio! Is that true? If yes, is there a possibility to implement HDMI sound support in the next version? I guess for many ppl the software is useless because in the year 2015 most of the mankind is using HDMI ;-) Thanks anyways for your great software

It should support sound output over HDMI. Maybe it could be a problem in connection with the used Toolchain (Libxenon) Version.

It might be something model specific, like we didn't have corona support a while ago... then i came and fixed it... and fixed a bunch of other things before quitting Libxenon development...

It should afaik work with HDMI also, but if it's not... you could perhaps check if like Mupen64 works? or tell me what model you're running it on? honestly tho, it's not likely that there will be a new version coming, i'm not working on this anymore... haven't worked on it for ages... neither is siz afaik (the only guy that worked along side me)

Thanks for the quick reply and the good news! I can smell a tiny bit of a chance to get it running with sound now :-)

Here are some screens from my actual config:
