View Full Version : Big and small frame jumps (sound ok), div3 the cause?
Some of my avi's are jumping around, where the sound will carry on. I was watching a film this evening (trying to at least) when the picture will jump like mad, and this happens with more than one film. The sound will be normal but the picture will stop for a second and then carry on.
I ran GSpot on it and the vid codec used was:
div3 - DivX 3 Low-Motion
This happens on a couple of my films and they seem to use the div3 codec. I presume there is something wrong with the codec used in the player with the 2.8.0 filmware?
Other films i will get a odd frame lapse, frequently but its certainly not the same as the one i mentioned above, but i belive this is a known problem.
The other films with other codecs work fine. I do hope to hell that this problem is sorted out in the next firmware release as its DOING MY F-ING HEAD IN </rant>
I am a linux bod myself but i heard that these new filmware releases as fairly frequent so i havent bothered to have a look. I really dont want to be dissapointed in this player.
DivX 3.11 are decoded by software, not by hw, so if your file has an high
bitrate some freezes are a normal limit of the player
Also, if you post these questions it would be good to know which player you have and what firmware you are using... :-)
Opps, yeah sorry, i am using the DP-500.
If the file has a high bit-rate there must be something that can be done to sort that out. Quite a few of my films have this jumping of picture, if i pause it then play it the jump disappears for a minute or two then comes back. Bu this only happens with div3 files (that i have noticed so far).
All the film links i get from sharereactor or shareconnector. So i suggest that unless you guys are getting this problem then the problem is mine rather than the player.
Could it be something with my set up slowing down my traffic? I am using a 5-port d-link fast ethernet switch (which i dont think is the cause somehow). I have emule running but i switch that off and it makes no difference. What about my firewall (Zonealarm)?
Firewall can not be the cause here...
What i suggest you do is burn one movie on disc that has hick-ups and try it on the player itself.
Further, as a second choice, the 2.8.3 has better playback and can be used on dp-500 without any problem, try that in combination with EzLink...
If the disc also hick-ups on the player itself, it will the movie too high bitrate (re-encode to lower bitrate). If not, it's gotta have something to do with network lag.
If the movies come from Sharereactor, they should not cause any trouble, they keep some standards in the movies they offer on emule.
Will be more a network issue then i guess...
Also you could try streaming such a movie with a Cross Cable (full 100 MB)
oh i wasnt aware of the fact you can use the 2.8.3 on the 500 do i need to use the official one? or one of the modded ones? which would you suggest?
I suggest Dracula if you don't absolutely need bigger fonst for subtitles.
If you want bigger fonts, use Big-ET which also include the FTP from Dracula.
just tried that and i am getting that error code 15. Do i have to keep trying it?
Try the No-CRC version here (PAL version):
There is no real risk in using this one (since it's checked) but always use Non CRC versions only if all else fail.
As always, updating is at your own risk.
thanks a lot for the handy hints. I have used the nonCRC version and it installed ok without the error. You might also be pleased to know that the jumping that i was discribing before seems to have disappeared, although i have yet to fully test it by watching a whole film.
Could you tell me: i have ez-link pro already, is it true to say that all i need to do is run the "start service" link and thats it? i dont need the ez-link manager running at the same time do i?
As far as i know, you don't have to...
Good to know you have ezlink Pro, we support FcLage completely and he is greatly supporting us. (You can see that by the rebate of 50% he offers to Special Members at Mpeg-Playcenter).
All you miss is being a special member now... 8)
Free choice m8 :-)
Cya soon, glad to help...
i'm having the same problem with some of my film. The film that "lags" is movies with to high bit-rate. I have several movies that run with 128 kBit/s without any problems. But movies over 150 kBit/s is causing lag when running.
By the way the movies i'm talking about is playing directly from the harddrive on my player.
Can i solve this and how ?
