#rockbox log for 2006-12-30

00:00:07linuxstbLlorean: MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 program stream.
00:00:52Lloreanlinuxstb: Got it.
00:00:58linuxstbPaulPosition: No, I don't. I'll be encoding test files for all LCD sizes (we now have too many...), so I'll try and remember 128x128. I assume your LCD has square pixels?
00:01:05 Join webguest36 [0] (i=91740560@gateway/web/cgi-irc/
00:02:26linuxstbdionoea: The Nano can do about 29fps full-screen with audio. My ipod Photo can just about manage 24fps at 16:9 "full-screen" (i.e. letterboxed 224x128). The gigabeat can handle fullscreen 320x240 with audio...
00:02:37linuxstbColdfire targets will struggle...
00:02:42 Part atrus_ ("Ex-Chat")
00:02:58linuxstb(and the patch won't work on Coldfire at the moment).
00:03:08PaulPositionlinuxstb - Indeed, the H10 has square screen of 128x128 so I assume square pixels :p
00:03:10dionoeanice :)
00:03:36linuxstbThis is with video decoding on the COP for the PortalPlayer targets.
00:03:41linuxstbThe main CPU is doing the audio.
00:04:28PaulPositionlinuxstb - I'm well aware that it is about utterly pointless to look at video on a device such as mine. Yet I'd like to see it work. :p
00:04:38dionoeavideo decoding includes conversion from YUV to RGB and display ?
00:04:58linuxstbYes. That's something I'm considering splitting between the two cores.
00:06:15linuxstbPaulPosition: You could try the 176x128 video. I _think_ mpegplayer will just crop it for you.
00:07:12PaulPositionlet's see :)
00:08:16midkaylinuxstb: what do you think about video+audio on the 5G?
00:08:22LloreanCan I ask for command line help with the VLC transcode?

00:08:55linuxstbIt seems embarrassing to try and compete with the Broadcom chip...
00:08:57LloreanI'm not all too familiar with VLC, but I figured a quick hack of the .bat would be fine, but "−−sout=#transcode{vcodec=mp2v,acodec=mp3,vb=256,ab=128,width=%WIDTH%,height=%HE

00:10:07linuxstbLlorean: You may need to resample the audio as well, depending on the input.
00:10:32dionoeaerrr ... file.mpg
00:11:14Lloreandionoea: Thanks, I'll see if that works
00:11:21tychverdo we really need to decode video at such high fps? I think the ipov videos use 15 fps
00:11:25 Join tipok [0] (
00:11:50linuxstbmidkay: Currently, mpegplayer can decode 320x240 video at around 21fps on a single PP core. That's without the conversion from YUV to RGB and blitting to the LCD. So if the second core could handle the yuv2rgb and blit _and_ audio, then we could get around that speed.
00:11:58Lloreandionoea: The problem is, video isn't showing along with the audio in media player classic like that
00:12:20dionoealike what ?
00:12:30Lloreandionoea: The file output by that command line
00:12:35linuxstbmidkay: So with optimisations, and using every cycle of both cores, it _may_ be possible to get 25fps or more out of it.
00:12:36LloreanI think it's audio only, the filesize is tiny
00:13:04midkaylinuxstb: cool :) though second-core access is also probably rather far in the distance too, i guess?
00:13:13linuxstbLlorean: What about viewing the file in VLC itself?
00:13:23linuxstbmidkay: No, mpegplayer (the patch I posted) is using the second core...

00:14:08 Join Terinjokes [0] (
00:14:28linuxstbmidkay: It's never been _that_ unknown. dan_a has done the work to implement a kernel on the COP, and there's a patch in the patch tracker from lostlogic which builds on that and runs the codec thread on the COP.
00:14:34Lloreandionoea: Also, a different VB

00:15:47webguest00hey. sorry to inturupt the vlc conversation but i'm having a problem with rockbox on my ipod. Well its a problem with the boot loader. I've just installed it and it works fine but i cannot load the original apple OS - it just keep cycling. Any ideas?
00:15:52midkaylinuxstb: that's very cool.. i've been out of the loop for too long :)
00:15:53dionoeaLlorean: append -vvv −−extraintf=logger to your command line and see what error messages VLC outputs
00:16:11dionoeaLlorean: or just try adding fps=25 in transcode
00:16:25dionoeampeg2 doesn't accept all framerates ... maybe your source frame rate is incompatible

00:19:41Lloreanmidkay: It's at the end of the comments on the coprocessor patch
00:20:13Lloreanlinuxstb: Scratch that, it is doing some framedropping, but the audio was fine the whole time
00:20:14Terinjokesdid you try installing using this:

00:20:34midkayargh.. wish flyspray didn't suck so much :) so hard to find stuff sometimes..
00:20:52linuxstbLlorean: The bitrate is quite high for video your size. You should try and see how much you can reduce it.
00:20:57 Quit ender` (" A psychiatrist is a fellow who asks you a lot of expensive questions your wife asks for nothing.")
00:21:17linuxstbBut is it skipping a lot of frames, or just occasionally?
00:21:20Lloreanlinuxstb: Yeah, I was just trying 700 because that was in the sample that dionoea used and I wanted to remove any stupidity I might have caused. I'm trying 256 now
00:21:41linuxstbThat may be too low... But probably a good place to work up from.
00:21:45LloreanThat's what I figure
00:21:59LloreanLots of frames at the end of the video, but it was a very very very active scene

00:23:24linuxstbSoap: We need someone to do all that kind of testing and come up with good encoder settings for Rockbox use...
00:23:25Lloreanlinuxstb: Actually, 256kbps video still looks pretty good.
00:24:26LloreanFor the Nano's screen, I'd say it's actually good enough
00:24:26Soapkind of funny when your audio is almost the same bitrate as your video.
00:24:52linuxstbI was just thinking that... These .mpg files are smaller than my FLACs...
00:25:16dionoeaLlorean: i guess that you could improve quality and keep the bitrate low by tweaking some ffmpeg options (like I frame ratio and stuff ...). But i don't have a clue about how that works
00:25:58linuxstbIs it skipping any frames at 256kbps?
00:26:05Lloreanlinuxstb: Not noticeably
00:26:09LloreanIf it was, I couldn't tell
00:26:26LloreanI'll run it again with frameskip off and without the limited framerate, shall I?
00:27:06tychver320x240 @ 15 FPS is 384kbps :S
00:27:06linuxstbThat could be interesting. In the past, ffmpeg-encoded files have been slower to decode than my mpeg2enc-encoded elephants dream clips.
00:27:25linuxstbtychver: How do you work that out?
00:27:35linuxstbAh, based on the Nano at 256kbps?
00:27:49tychverthe mpeg 2 profiles page on wikipedia
00:28:32SoapTMPGEnc is free for MPEG1 encoding, and it allows you to play around with the quantization matrix, which might explain the performance difference between same-bitrate encodes between two different encoders.
00:29:09Lloreanlinuxstb: 30fps, give or take 1 in variance.
00:29:24linuxstbSo about the same as the ED video.

00:35:31tychverthat would probably be me then
00:36:11midkaylinuxstb: hm, so what have you got for 5G so far on mpegplayer? is it using both cores? decoding audio?
00:36:21tychverit might be worth the motion trade off if you could go to a higher bitrate
00:36:42Lloreantychver: I'd rather have smoothness with artifacts than frameskipping with clarity in most cases.
00:37:47linuxstbmidkay: mpegplayer is the same on all portalplayer targets (the patch I posted earlier, not CVS) - video on the COP, audio on the main CPU, playing .mpg files.
00:38:34midkaylinuxstb: that's great.. any thoughts on it getting CVS'd soon? gotta run in a few minutes, but it sounds really cool, i'll have to try it when i get back.
00:38:45Lloreanlinuxstb: I think there's something wrong with frameskipping
00:39:19linuxstbmidkay: It relies on the kernel-on-cop patch being submitted first. It's also needs a lot of cleaning up.
00:39:20webguest00Terinjokes: thanks for the advice - installing everything the old fasioned way workes like a charm. Guess the beta version isn't good for the 4th gen ipod yet

00:40:13linuxstbLlorean: Happy to. :)
00:40:17Terinjokeswebguest00, glad it worked
00:40:42tychverwell I shall run a clean CVS, patch and try 24fps
00:40:47Lloreantychver: Even 25fps is not *wholly* consistent on the Nano, depending on the file, for example it dipped to about 23 in this one
00:41:12tychverah right, maybe I shall stick with 15 then..
00:41:23Lloreanlinuxstb: Should video be able to catch up with audio if it falls behind?
00:41:32LloreanBecause mine fell out of sync and has caught up.
00:41:41 Quit amiconn (" HydraIRC -> <- The dawn of a new IRC era")
00:42:57linuxstbLlorean: mpegplayer doesn't attempt a/v sync yet. It just plays audio at full-speed and attempts to play video at the correct speed if you enable the limit fps option.
00:43:31Lloreanlinuxstb: There's definitely *something* funny going on then
00:44:07Lloreanlinuxstb: This scene plays at 27 fps with speed limit on. The video falls behind the audio, and then catches up a bit later if the limit is on, and if frame skip is enabled, there's some heavy frame skipping in the scene.
00:44:15Lloreanspeed limit *off* for the 27 fps

00:50:07 Join spiorf [0] (
00:51:20linuxstbThat sounds normal to me...
00:51:55linuxstbmpegplayer is always trying to display frames at the correct time. If it falls behind, it will catch up (if the CPU can).
00:52:01Lloreanlinuxstb: The file is 25 fps. It runs faster than its native framerate throughout the entire scene, but if I have the limit on, it runs slower than its native framerate at a certain portion.
00:52:29LloreanThat's more the interesting thing, it's frameskipping on a file that can be decoded faster than realtime
00:52:40amiconnThe build table is looking really odd...
00:53:13linuxstbThe displayed framerate is the average since the start of the file. So if it decodes a second of audio too slowly, that may not affect the average.

01:00:22LloreanWell, I have to be off for a bit. As far as I can tell then, mpegplayer is working as intended, and 256kbps video seems about right.

02:53:26Craig_that's a shame
02:54:13Craig_i hate itunes and it's random folder structure. i just got bought an ipod for xmas but i really don't want to transfer all my music using itunes
02:54:50LloreanWell, until someone figures out why we can't talk to the drive, we can't run on it
02:55:48Craig_what seems to be the problem then? just something apple did to the latest drive?
02:56:08LloreanWe don't know yet.

02:57:48LloreanWe know a wide range of things that don't work. Does that qualify as progress?
02:57:59LloreanWe're still in the same place though.
02:57:59Craig_i'd say so

02:59:18LloreanThere are a couple people hacking away at it though, so I imagine in time one of them will solve it
02:59:26Craig_i'm sure :-)
02:59:53Craig_i really hope it's soon. just wish i had a bit more knowledge and could help!
03:00:44krazyndn411quick question - on an autoupdating ipod, is all the music from before installing rockbox accessible with rockbox?
03:00:54LloreanWell, once the disk problem is solved Rockbox ought to work as well on the 80gb as it does on any other iPod.
03:01:09Craig_i look forward to that!
03:01:40Lloreankrazyndn411: Rockbox does not cause the contents of your music partition to be modified other than the files that you copy onto it.
03:02:27Craig_from what i have read you can use database for rockbox to read the contents of your "itunes" music files
03:03:25Craig_what ipod have you got?
03:03:43krazyndn411video - 30gb
03:03:58krazyndn411i wanted to play flac content :-\
03:04:26Craig_i almost wish i had one of those - i got the 80gb unexpectedly for xmas and can't install rockbox :-(
03:04:29LloreanIs there some reason you can't?
03:04:31krazyndn411plus - rocbox sound customization is so much nicer
03:04:46krazyndn411i can't browse any music right now
03:05:24Craig_was it all transferred with itunes?
03:05:35krazyndn411before i installed rockbox
03:05:35LloreanYou shouldn't be able to transfer flacs with iTunes though
03:05:51krazyndn411i haven't transferred any yet
03:05:51krazyndn411i just wanted to
03:06:33LloreanIf you're planning to use Rockbox for music, iTunes really isn't the way to go anyway.
03:06:43LloreanBut database can find and index all your non-protected iTunes songs
03:07:21Craig_i wish companies would just see how much they're shooting themselves in the back with all this DRM crap
03:08:02Craig_all i want is to use my ipod as a harddrive with a regular folder structure that can access all my music
03:08:05krazyndn411all of it is non protected...i think i will reformat anyways...i tunes 7 really pisses me off because
03:08:18SoapApple's choice to use a database system has nothing to do with DRM
03:08:44LloreanSoap: But their choice to obfuscate filenames was likely to make it difficult for users to copy files off it
03:08:46Craig_it has to do with stopping you from copying as easily back to computer
03:09:01LloreanSoap: What thread did you think I'd killed, by the way?
03:09:08SoapLlorean: the argument has been made that the database is faster because of the consistant and small file names and sizes.
03:09:33SoapLlorean: and that if they /really/ didn't want you moving files off they would remove the (unneeded) metadata/tags.
03:09:36 Join jeffb [0] (
03:10:12SoapCraig_: copy them back, any decent tagger will rename and organize them for you.
03:10:52 Quit Mouser_X (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
03:11:09LloreanSoap: I don't imagine the consistency of the filenames was necessary to make the database faster, especially since until recently it was possible to allow the database to use longer names which means it wasn't hardcoded to depend on or expect short ones, or optimized to use them in some special way.
03:11:09Craig_i know there are ways and i know exactly how to do them. it's just a pain that i can't drag my music folder straight onto my ipod and browse it
03:11:33krazyndn411i like this new way of browsing
03:11:39krazyndn411i think i'll reformat
03:11:48LloreanSoap: I'm not saying that there wasn't a performance advantage, just that it seems unlikely to be a primary reason (to me, but I'm not invested in this, I honestly don't care why they did it, it's silly either way)
03:12:20Craig_if the filename argument is true, how come other manufacturers don't do it?
03:12:35Soapit is silly, and I still believe the existance of tags proves they didn't do it to screw anyone.
03:12:56SoapCraig_: name another system with as fast of a database when dealing with 60GB of music?
03:13:09Soapenough OT.
03:13:29LloreanSoap: I think the existence of tags is laziness. I don't think it was a *deep* effort to screw anyone, just a token effort to keep the most casual users (which honestly, is what iPod sells to primarily) confused.
03:13:50LloreanBut, on the plus side, the remaining tags makes our Database able to incorporate iTunes infected iPods with ease.
03:14:09Craig_and also to try and make sure they use itunes to transfer music, which would probably encourage them to buy from the iTunes store
03:14:26Craig_i'm just a bit cynical
03:14:34*Llorean wonders if anyone has written a Rockbox-sync for a popular music manager yet.
03:15:10Soapwhen Foobar2000 gets opened and ported there will be only one popular music manager! ;)
03:15:19Llorean"When" or "If"?
03:15:31Soapnot if
03:15:35Soapit's a big one.
03:15:47Craig_gotta love foobar
03:16:06linuxstbI've never understood developers who release "free" software, but keep the source to themselves.
03:16:06LloreanApparently you don't have to, I do see diehard winamp fanatics.
03:16:34Craig_but foobar is just so economical on cpu/memory usage
03:16:53Craig_winamp is nowhere near as good from that point of view
03:17:16Lloreanlinuxstb: I think there's a fear of someone forking and showing you up.
03:17:48LloreanI mean, there's always the option of a license that doesn't allow redistribution.
03:18:15tehsmoperhaps they also don't want to deal with a development community, and working with patches and such
03:18:44tehsmoit's easy to merge changes when you're the only developer. ;)
03:19:04Soapjust because you release the source doesn't mean you need to offer public CVS, or even more support than "Here. Are you happy now?"
03:19:20tehsmobut then people will fork, and you get to llorean's argument
03:19:33Craig_nice speaking guys, i'm off
03:19:35 Part Craig_
03:19:35Lloreantehsmo: If you have a no-redistribution license, people can't fork.
03:19:40tehsmohmm. .true
03:19:44LloreanWell, not legally
03:19:56linuxstbThat's hardly Free software then..
03:19:57Soapyea, which is a new one to me. The two theories i had always heard were 1-contains code it shouldn't and 2-It is a royal mess.
03:20:10Lloreanlinuxstb: Aye, 'tis true.
03:20:45LloreanBut I mean, closing the source only seems to imply that there's something in the source that the user doesn't want other people to see.
03:21:04Soapor that you're a sucker and a free beta tester.
03:21:29LloreanHey, as long as it doesn't have some self destruct code in it that eats it when the retail product goes live, I'll be happy with the final beta.
03:21:42linuxstbBut I agree it's hard to open-source an existing closed-source application. It's completely different if it's been open source from the very early stages.
03:22:37*linuxstb is frustrated that mpegplayer is _just_ too slow for fullscreen video at 25fps on his photo... Too much framedropping.
03:23:50 Nick myzar|away is now known as myzar (n=myzar@
03:23:58LloreanWhat bitrate are you encoding at for Photo?
03:24:40linuxstbI've been trying mencoder. First at 500kbps, then at 400kbps. The quality is still OK, so I'll try dropping it further.
03:25:19LloreanI imagine there's still room for optimizing too, anyway, right?
03:26:03linuxstbYes, I'm sure there is.
03:27:32SoapI'm making room for some benchmarking videos. I assume for benchmarking purposes it would be beter to encode to a small size, so that the FPS average has a higher degree of "resolution" (45 compared to 41 being more meaningful than 10 to 11?)
03:28:04SoapOR - should I benchmark at higher resolutions because low resolution tests aren't indicitive of high res performance?
03:28:15 Quit krazyndn411 ("CGI:IRC (EOF)")
03:28:40linuxstbI don't know... Do some benchmarks to decide how to benchmark...
03:28:47*Llorean saw that one coming. :)
03:28:58LloreanOr at least, something like it
03:29:43LloreanI have to say, until today I've felt fairly indifferent about Video support, and suddenly, after watching 10 minutes of a TV show on my Nano I find myself thinking "I wish rebuffering worked..."

05:47:13scorchereading the manual helps

08:54:57Mouser_XYes, he got banished.

08:55:07Mouser_XIt took about a year for him to get back.
08:55:18Mouser_XFrom what I recall, she's in a cacoon.
08:55:24Mouser_XHas been for some time.
08:55:29bun-buni really need to go back and read it all from the beginning
08:55:40Mouser_XI'm thinking of doing the same thing.
08:55:49bun-buni really really meant to order the books when pete abrams published them
08:55:59Mouser_XYou still can.
08:56:09Mouser_XI think the first ones are now in a compilation.
08:56:10bun-bunare they still first editions?
08:56:43Mouser_XThough, at least they're available.
08:58:02Mouser_XI strongly recommend that you attempt to catch up.
08:58:13Mouser_XThere's some really good content that you're missing out on.
08:58:22bun-buni can imagine

08:58:44Mouser_XI think she's moved out though.
08:59:05bun-bunmoved out? she was already living on her own i thought
08:59:11Mouser_XShe was going to school, but ran out of money (I think Riff or Torg stole here credit card number...)
08:59:31Mouser_XWell, at one point, they were all living in the same house.
08:59:37Mouser_XShe moved out of that.
08:59:41bun-bunoh man i'm really out of it
09:00:00Mouser_XThe house had a really interesting ending...
09:00:14Mouser_XThey now own it, free of charge, rent, payment, everything.

09:00:43Mouser_XSo very true.

11:02:52nudelynapple have 80% of the market. when MS got sued there were other options but they were still found guitly because they abused the monopoly they had with windows for force other things on people

13:00:10muckerHi I was thinking of buying a sansa c200 player. I was wondering if it is possible to port rockbox to it?
13:01:04bluebrothermucker, you're aware of the fact that porting Rockbox is a major task?
13:01:24bluebrotherread the NewPorts wiki page for some information about porting
13:01:32linuxstbi.e. months of hard work...
13:01:41Genre9mp3mucker: why not going for an e200 instead?
13:02:19muckerI'm interested in starting it as a hobby
13:02:46muckeri've got a working knowledge of C but don't have any knowledge of embededded programming
13:02:55bluebrotherwhy not start working on Rockbox with an already working device?
13:03:18bluebrotherthe e200 series needs still work ... and the other ports also have room for improvements
13:03:47doktoreassorry is this line ok for backup firmware? ./ipodpatcher /dev/sda2 -r bootpartition.bin
13:03:56muckeri already a h120 running on rockbox
13:03:57doktoreasor /media/IPOD ?
13:04:02linuxstbmucker: You should find out some things before trying a port - mainly what CPU is in the device, and how easy it will be to safely run your own code (i.e. is the firmware encrypted, is there a safe recovery method when your code crashes).
13:04:22linuxstbThat will make the difference between a (relatively) easy and hard port.
13:04:43doktoreasdf -h says that my ipod is here /dev/sda2 3.8G 2.1G 1.8G 54% /media/IPOD
13:05:13linuxstbThe CPU needs to be supported by GCC, and it will be a great help if a datasheet is publically available. If there's no datasheet, you'll need to reverse-engineer the existing firmware.
13:05:20muckerI had did a search on it and found some system schematics which I'd assume come in handy with embedded programming?
13:05:36bluebrotherdoktoreas, while I don't know exactly as I don't own an ipod I guess you'll need to use the disk instead of the partition, i.e. /dev/sda
13:05:37linuxstbmucker: Yes. Does that list the major chips?
13:05:48doktoreasnow fine sorry
13:05:57doktoreasi need to run by root
13:06:07doktoreasand so −−scan found the ipod

13:11:31doktoreasis there any way to rset it?
13:12:15linuxstbmucker: I don't recognise any of those chips as being the CPU...
13:13:23mickael___any way to make the ipod asking me what OS to run?
13:13:56doktoreasis there a way to reset it?
13:13:58pixelmadoktoreas: using one of the latest daily builds?
13:14:01mickael___doktoreas: try menu+select during some seconds, when it's blocked
13:14:39linuxstbmickael___: You could use the "loader2" bootloader written for the ipodlinux project. That gives you a boot menu.
13:14:52linuxstb(and also loads Rockbox).
13:15:18doktoreasok rebooted
13:15:37pixelmahold menu+select (center button) to reboot (unplugged usb) - then when you see the apple while it's rebooting press select+play - then you'd have to install an older daily (27th worked here)
13:15:44doktoreasi see a menu with clanedar Contacts Notes and rockbox
13:15:46mickael___linuxstb: i install the linuxipod boot loader, and put the rockbock files into the root directory of the ipod?
13:15:50daurnimatorlinuxstb: what are you thinking about the 402?
13:15:56linuxstbdoktoreas: That's the file browser, not a menu.
13:16:02doktoreasif i select rockbox it bring me back to this
13:16:11doktoreasso i can put file in there?
13:16:28daurnimatori just haven't gone further for: 1, lack of time; 2, i can't brick it - i have no money, it has NO recovery things, one bad flash and its gone.
13:17:07linuxstbmickael___: Yes.
13:17:30linuxstbdaurnimator: I haven't decided. I'm busy with mpegplayer at the moment.
13:17:32muckerlinuxstb: thanks I've tried doing a web search for the device CPU but nothing has come up, I'll try a more thorough look later on or find a forum where I will get info
13:18:10mickael___ok linuxstb, but i saw that the ipod nano is not officially supported by ipodlinux
13:18:11daurnimatormucker: why have you picker the c200?
13:18:30linuxstbMaybe start a thread in the Rockbox "New Ports" forum (if there isn't one already). If you post the link to that dissection article, maybe someone can help identify the components.
13:18:59linuxstbmickael___: IPL doesn't officially support anything newer than the third generation. But it works.
13:19:12mickael___ok linuxstb thanks
13:19:42muckermickael___ : nobody's done it which makes it a challenge and it's relitvely cheap
13:20:23linuxstbmucker: One thing you could do is to try and find a firmware upgrade file (if any exist), and examine it.
13:20:39daurnimatori don't know why anyone would buy a player with a hard limit of less than 4gb
13:20:40linuxstbThat should give you a hint about how easy it will be to add your own code.
13:23:37mickael___just another question : installing other os can damage my ipod, reduce its lifespan?
13:24:24mickael___(without changing anything in the debug menu ;)
13:24:37linuxstbAny H300 users around who want to test mpegplayer with audio?

13:24:59*Genre9mp3 raises hand! :)
13:25:09linuxstbWhich do you have?
13:26:26linuxstbFirstly download one of the .mpg files in - it's probably only worth trying the smaller one.
13:27:23linuxstbDo you want a or a patch?
13:27:38Genre9mp3patch please :)
13:27:54linuxstbOK, just don't look at the code... It's not yet presentable. :)
13:31:01*Genre9mp3 has fired-up VMware and (can't) wait
13:32:11linuxstbThat includes a lot of PortalPlayer-specific changes to Rockbox as well (the kernel-on-cop patch), but that shouldn't affect the h300 builds.
13:33:50*Genre9mp3 is compiling now

13:42:57linuxstbI think I forgot to mention that it will probably crash, so you'll need to reset...
13:43:13linuxstbThat's not too shabby. Have you downloaded the 224x176 mpg?
13:43:19Genre9mp3though it already crashed twice with PANIC stkov main
13:43:37webguest26hi can someone please say me how to delete my wiki/flyspray account? i don't feel comfortable anymore with my realname and emailadress there
13:43:45Genre9mp3don't worry, I have pins around
13:44:02linuxstbGenre9mp3: OK... Try increasing the stack size in line 180 of firmware/
13:44:16linuxstbOr maybe it's another problem...

13:47:22linuxstbIf you have chance, it would be interesting if you could test the .m2v versions of those .mpg files with the old mpegplayer and post the framerates you get for comparison.
13:48:00Genre9mp3224x128 @ around 11fps! :)
13:48:21Genre9mp3and didn't crash till now
13:48:54linuxstbCan you try changing line 180 of firmare/ to 0x2200 instead of 0x2400?
13:48:56 Quit fleytin (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
13:49:07linuxstbThat will reduce the stack size (it's 0x2000 in CVS).
13:49:10Genre9mp3of course everything is out of sync, should I try with skip frames, too?
13:49:38linuxstbI think your random stackov crashes are caused by something else overwriting the stack - i.e. not a "real" stack overflow.
13:50:08linuxstbskip frames probably won't help. You'll need to encode a file with a lower framerate.
13:50:24linuxstbIf you enable skip frames, it probably won't display any frames at all...

13:51:00JdGordonawesome, wel done
13:51:04linuxstbScroll back for the patch I gave Genre9mp3
13:51:16JdGordonGenre9mp3: what target are you testing on?
13:51:34 Nick Everybody|Determ is now known as Everybody (
13:51:45JdGordonok, ill grab my sisters nano and see wha happens
13:51:45linuxstbIt can do almost 30fps full-screen with audio on the Nano...
13:52:08linuxstb(making use of the COP for the video decoding)
13:52:58JdGordonactually, I cant get it
13:53:03linuxstbGenre9mp3; If you encode your own videos, make sure to resample the audio to 44.1KHz. It can be either mp2 or mp3, and multiplexed into an MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 program stream.
13:53:14JdGordon11fps is only slightly leess than the OF on h300 so well done
13:53:42*Genre9mp3 recompiles with 0x2200
13:53:43linuxstbThere are still mirak's optimisation patches in flyspray which haven't been applied yet, so it should do more.
13:54:08Genre9mp3linuxstb: Wouldn't these patches need updating?
13:54:11linuxstbAlso, that test video has relatively high bitrate audio (170kbps lame-encoded VBR).
13:54:33linuxstbGenre9mp3: What do you mean?
13:54:38linuxstbOh, mirak's patches?
13:55:08linuxstbI've no idea... The ASM optimisations should still apply cleanly, but the IRAM patches may now conflict with libmad's use of IRAM.
13:55:37Genre9mp3ok... I'll retry now with the change you've point to me
13:56:34linuxstbI'm not sure what to do about the stack size - whether it would be acceptable to increase Rockbox's main stack by 10%, or if I should dig into libmad to reduce its stack usage...
13:58:43Genre9mp3hmmm... I got a PANIC stkov dircache :/
13:58:52Genre9mp3while booting
13:59:04linuxstbThat's odd...
13:59:12linuxstbYou changed it to 0x2000 ?
13:59:25linuxstbI mean 0x2200?

14:03:36Genre9mp3hmmm... seems like it was in the same place
14:03:44Genre9mp3I'll retry
14:04:05linuxstbOK, then you'll probably need to increase the stack size again.

15:33:05Craig_well, save link

17:16:33linuxstbElPenguin: You're preaching to the converted :) But don't forget that without ipodlinux, Rockbox wouldn't be running on the ipods (we used their knowledge to port Rockbox).
17:17:16ElPenguinlinuxstb: yeah. i found rockbox purely by accident. never got ipodlinux running because their documentation for manual install was so sparse and their linux installer sucked.
17:17:20linuxstbSoap: What encoder(s) are you trying?
17:17:58ElPenguinlinuxstb: is iRony worth an attempt or should i just go for a manual install?
17:18:02SoapI'm going to use TMPGEnc because I'm familiar enough with it to take full control over ever aspect of the mpg stream.
17:18:33linuxstbOK. I'll be interested to compare the output with mpeg2enc.
17:18:46Soapif I find a great balance of quality/size/speed it shouldn't be hard to dupluicate the settings with another program.
17:19:08Soapbut it will be easier (for me) to find said settings with a program I am very comfortable with.
17:19:14linuxstbDoes TMPGEnc transcode from all the common formats?
17:19:35linuxstbElPenguin: I don't even know what iRony is.
17:19:36SoapWindows has the advantage of being able to take anything as input you have a directshow filter for.
17:19:53ElPenguinlinuxstb: some rockbox installer by
17:20:13linuxstbThen no. I wouldn't trust any unofficial Rockbox installers - do the manual way.
17:20:18Soapso, TMPGEnc (in theory) can transcode anything you can play.
17:20:31linuxstbThe new instructions are just a couple of commands, so if you're happy in the terminal, it's a breeze.
17:20:40Soapand anything it has problems with can be frame-served by a better front end.

17:43:28linuxstbCan you provide a reliable recipe to recreate it?
17:43:54linuxstbThe most important thing is for a developer to be able to recreate the bug, otherwise he/she can't attempt to fix it.
17:44:31mdkelinuxstb: it makes a pop sound and turns off. It happens every time I try to play a song and am low on battery, I think
17:45:10linuxstbThat's sounds like normal low-battery behaviour.
17:45:10Soapthat sounds like a battery which drops voltage under load.
17:45:36mdkeI would have expected some kind of message when the thing is out of battery
17:45:56mdkeglad it's not a crash then, anyway :)
17:45:56linuxstbNo, Rockbox doesn't shutdown on low battery, but your ipod does.
17:46:00Soapas in the hard drive spins to load up the song, and a battery which measures 3.3 volts with no load all of a sudden measures 3.0 volts when load is applied.
17:46:22maxkelleysay, how do I setup a rockbox dev environment on linux?
17:46:44mdkelinuxstb: with the Apple firmware, I get a little picture that tells me the battery is out, so I expected something similar with Rockbox. There is nothing like that?

19:25:17Soapwhen playing photo-sized videos on my 5thGen, the FPS display is cut in half.

19:26:28linuxstbSoap: I guess you're not using the system font?
19:26:52linuxstbThe lcd_update_rect() is hardcoded to assume the system font...
19:28:18nls_webmaybe put rb->lcd_setfont(FONT_SYSFIXED); somewhere?
19:28:43linuxstbDo I need to restore the user's font?
19:29:00nls_webdon't think so
19:29:17linuxstbI'll check plugin.c to see what it does when the plugin returns.
19:30:17linuxstbIt seems plugin.c does nothing with the fonts, so I should restore.
19:30:19SoapI should have a stack of 4thGen sized movies ready by tomorrow, but at 100mins each, it will take me a while. Thank god for batch encoding.
19:31:01linuxstbIt takes 100 minutes to encode, or that's how long the movie is?
19:31:15Soapit takes 100 mins to encode on this machine.

19:33:49linuxstbAre you encoding both MPEG1 and MPEG2 samples?
19:34:29Genre9mp3linuxstb: I suppose that I should get around 11fps since I get 15fps with 224x128
19:34:46Soapmy suspicion is that at such small sizes mpeg2 won't offer much.

20:31:37bro2baseballi believe so...

20:33:33bro2baseballwell i did" cvs -z3 -d:pserve"r ect
20:33:33bro2baseballis that it?
20:33:39linuxstbEasy way to check is if you have lots of folders called "CVS" in all the source folders.
20:33:46bro2baseballyep i do
20:34:03bro2baseballi'm sure of that
20:34:16bro2baseballon the wiki it says
20:34:17bro2baseballdiff -u oldfile newfile > patch
20:34:23linuxstbFrom the rockbox-devel directory, just type "cvs diff -u > mypatch.diff"
20:34:23bro2baseballto create a diff file
20:34:39bro2baseballi'l try that
20:34:59linuxstbYou can then look at that file in a text editor, and see if it reflects the changes you made.
20:35:41bro2baseballyes! it worked

20:36:28Genre9mp3linuxstb: Is mirak's patch for any reason not acceptable in CVS or something?

20:44:57karimGenre9mp3, you implemented sound ?
20:45:16LloreanSoap: Yes, as I said in the thread, it should still function fine for loading Rockbox. I did say that? Or did I forget to type it?

20:49:32LloreanSoap: Well, it's not a correct installation if it doesn't work wholly my my standard, but I guess my phrasing could've been a bit less literal. :-p
20:49:55Soapand mine could have been a bit more verbose.
20:50:25LloreanSoap: I was worried that they'd expect to be able to boot Apple_OS the manual way after getting Rockbox running.
20:51:06Soapyea, your preemptive strike was probably the better way to go.
20:51:10karimlinuxstb, there are not much changes, only the idct block is extended to 128 byte instead of 64, the struct is put into iram. also, and hem just idct.c have some function in assembly.

22:50:26Lloreanyossa: They should just be in blocks where they're not supposed to load because of the target, and you just need to move them to the ones that do compile
22:51:09yossagot it
22:51:43PhulLlorean: can the RTC chip do it?

23:18:32*cheesechoker doesn't have a compiler on this computer
23:18:37linuxstbMaybe we should rename "daily builds" to something else - e.g. "archived builds".

23:21:27*Llorean wishes there were some way to clear up the misconception that dailies are "safer" or that the CVS builds page requires compiling.
23:21:42GodEaterdon't call them CVS builds?

23:22:42GodEater]MrFWorK[, if there were - we'd have said so
23:23:31amiconnlinuxstb: The daily builds do have 2 advantages over the cvs builds:
23:24:02amiconn(1) all of them are made consistently with the recommended gcc versions for each architecture
23:24:04linuxstbBagder: Another video for the collection...
23:24:40amiconn(2) Their timestamps match the actual build time, expressed in CET (or CEST part time of the year)
23:25:11GodEateramiconn, does (1) mean they're built on a different box than the CVS builds ?
23:25:16linuxstbBoth are fixable... The build scripts that run on the remote servers should set the TZ variable to something consistent.
23:25:31linuxstbAnd all build servers should install the recommended versions...

23:26:47amiconnGodEater: The cvs builds are distributed, the dailies are not
23:27:11amiconnThat's the cause of (1) (not all build servers necessarily use the same gcc versions) and (2) (the build servers are located in different time zones)
23:27:48GodEaterinteresting - who owns all the build servers then ?
23:28:28amiconnDifferent people
23:28:44amiconnOne of them is mine

23:29:40GodEaterlord my typing blows tonight
23:29:40linuxstbMy main PC at home is a build server...
23:29:59amiconnThe number to the far right of each line in the build table shows how many servers participated in th elast round, and links to a list which server built how many of the builds
23:30:30GodEatersounds like it would definitely be a plan to standardize all the servers on the right gcc / bin-utils versions

23:37:09jeffbno doubt
23:37:12amiconnGodEater: A dump from the real thing might be helpful for that...
23:37:28Soaphmm, 88% percent framerate compared to the VLC encodes of Elephant's Dream. I'm moving backwards.
23:37:32GodEaterI thought we'd all reached the conclusion the dumps were the same ?
23:38:24GodEateralthough I may have missed further discussion - my Wii has had all my attention today and I've not read up on the IRC logs
23:38:49Soapthe picture is sharper, for the same bitrate, though.
23:40:16linuxstbGodEater: My guess is that they are the same, but it would be useful if someone could confirm.
23:40:50GodEaterlinuxstb, well that still means someone with a knowledge of biphase code modulation encoding and decoding needs to get their hands dirty

23:48:08SoapI'm just guessing that the speed differences I'm seeing are a result of the frame structure, but I don't know what was used in the wiki encodes. I'm creating a set with a different quantization matrix now, but I can't believe that will affect decoding speed, only picture quality.
23:48:56GodEaterlinuxstb, you're mean - but you're right :)
23:49:28Soapand this is a different ballgame than making XSVCDs, where the primary concern is quality per bit. Here I think the goal is speed per quality.
