I have recently upgraded my VDR setup with more recent software and plugin versions! My current setup consists of
- FFmpeg revision 15245
- DirectFB 1.0.1
- Xinelib 1.1.15
- VDR 1.6.0-2, with the following plugins
- xineliboutput 1.0.1
- epgsearch 0.9.24
- remote 0.4.0
- skinsoppalusikka 1.6.1
- streamdev 0.3.4
- sc 0.9.0
I’m using Matrox G550 and its tv-output to display the video image on my old 28″ analog television.
The actual reason for the upgrade was to get a recent FFmpeg version to play videos using xineliboutput’s media player. Everything went well except that for some reason, there’s a problem with the OSD when playing videos using software scaling (hardware scaling made OSD look awful). I posted a question about the problem on the VDR mailing list to see, if anyone else has had this problem. It seems to be some kind of initialization problem during playback, but I have not yet been able to find out the cause for it.
For those who don’t know what VDR is: It can be used to make a computer to function as a video disk recorder (article in Wikipedia).
