constant buffering when playin Bluray with MakeMKV - farinurlaub - 10-06-2014

hey guys,
the last couple weeks i've been trying to get blurays to work on my htpc system. i've installed makemkv and the bluray plugin and everything according to the log works fine up untill the point the screen turns into playback mode. it takes about 1-2 minutes of buffering, then i get an onscreen message "cache filled before reaching required amount for continuous play" and i can watch the movie for 10 seconds. this repeats over and over again. i have never had problems streaming high bitrate videos via network, but playing bluray with the internal drive seems to be a challenge.

here is my log : http://pastebin.com/33fQ2rjf

i've already created an advancedsettings.xml to increase the cache but this didn't work out. i think it could be a problem with the streaming function of MakeMKV or the graphics card.

i hope you guys can help me...

Not really sure, but a debug log may be able to help.
Code:
cat /storage/.xbmc/temp/xbmc.log | paste

starting from the moment i press "play disk" in the bluray plugin. during the hole time i was able to watch 1:20 minutes of the movie.

i realy hope the log helps to solve this..

Thank you!

Please avoid posting log snippets, Try this command, it will return a url, post that url back here please. I should have said this before
Code:
cat /storage/.xbmc/temp/xbmc.log | paste

Seems like there might be a couple things happening here.

You are on AMD hardware, AMD E2-2000 APU with Radeon™ HD Graphics, 2 cores available
With AMD hardware there is currently an issue with HD audio and refresh rate switching. So we currently ask people to do one of two things.
Either, disable DTS-HD and TrueHD, or disable "adjust display refresh rate to match content"

I would try either option and see if it helps the issue.

Code:
19:14:04 T:140010615461632 NOTICE: fps: 23.976024, pwidth: 1920, pheight: 1080, dwidth: 1920, dheight: 1080

Thank you! But none of this helped to fix it. "adjust display refresh rate to match content" was disabled the whole time, enabling it also didn't change anything. disabling true hd & dts hd didn't work out as well. I'll post the log later today. Next i'll try to rip a bluray with makemkv and play it back, see if it has the same problems. Like i said before, i've never had playback issues with any kind of video.
Thank you so much for your support irusak!

so this is the log with disabled TrueHD and DTS-HD http://sprunge.us/TXAf with the same issue

the same movie ripped as mkv made with makemkv works perfectly. but this obviously takes space and time, direct playing would be so much better Sad

any more ideas?

thank you!

Can you try and open the stream on another computer? using VLC or something?

Start the movie, then open the network stream in VLC.
Code:
http://127.0.0.1:51000/stream/title3.m2ts
Replace, 127.0.0.1 with the ip or your OpenELEC machine.
