Re: Video player with audio switching (GTVBox/ViMu Player)

By the way, most GTVs (Revue, GS7, Co-Star, LG) do not have an easy access to >>| & |<< keys on their remotes. It is usually required to hold some FN key. So, maybe it would be better to use some other keys for chapters. I don't object to multiple keys changing chapters, but it would sure be nice i...

Re: Video player with audio switching (GTVBox/ViMu Player)

Surprise. It should work if you name an MKV embedded sub track "Forced" (first letter capitalized). Actually, MKV files have a special flag for that but I was not able to utilize it for some reason in my parser (maybe it even works).... Nice surprise! :D Remuxed a video, tested, works! Very nice. D...

Re: Video player with audio switching (GTVBox/ViMu Player)

...I assumed it was XML in the container. But yes, I do me what's in the container...however it's in there :) No. It is completely binary format. http://matroska.org/technical/specs/chapters/index.html Ahh...thanks for the link. The XML matches what's there so I guess MKVmerge just uses XML as a si...

Re: Video player with audio switching (GTVBox/ViMu Player)

I can provide a chapter file if needed...I think they are just XML. Hmm.. I thought we were talking about chapters embedded into MKV containers... :roll: I do mean chapters embedded in the MKV containers. Aren't they just XML in the container? I don't know. I use MKVMergeGUI and it handles it like ...

Re: Video player with audio switching (GTVBox/ViMu Player)

Hmm... Just looked at MKV specs. Looks like it is quite easy to implement with "MKV extended" enabled. I wonder do I have any MKV with chapters... Now you are teasing me! :D I've longed for this feature since I first starting using GTVBox. From my perspective, it would be great to have the|<< and >...

Re: Video player with audio switching (GTVBox/ViMu Player)

If you need a fast skip option, use 0-9 number keys.... And... try do not hit buttons by mistake lol. :D Ahh...so this was an intentional change? Any plans to support MKV chapters and let the >>| advance a chapter? GTVBox interface is optimized for D-PAD control. You can not use it on tablet withou...

Re: Video player with audio switching (GTVBox/ViMu Player)

It seems the behavior of the chapter advance button ( >>| ) has changed? For me it never seemed to move to the chapter markers in my MKV files, but it did jump ahead 5 minutes which was a reasonable compromise. I was hoping that it would someday actually support MKV chapters. However it now seems to...

Re: Video player with audio switching (GTVBox Video Player)

For performance and memory reasons, images with size larger then 0,5Mb are not displayed in the grid mode. The recommended size of a cover is 200x400. Thumbgen generates something like this if I remember correctly. If the image is larger it is scaled and more size more ugly scaling (paradox for bet...

Re: Video player with audio switching (GTVBox Video Player)

Love the new grid layout! I use Thumbgen and apparently I have something set wrong, because all of my folders have a "folder.jpg" file, yet GTVBox can't seem to load all of them (though it shows most) and some of the ones it does show look really bad (very blocky image compared to how good it looks ...

Re: Video player with audio switching (GTVBox Video Player)

It is not as easy. :-) All common used video libs are C/C++, but you can only use Java on Google TV. It was not very easy even to parse MKV and current MKV support has many bugs and for ex. does not support seeking. So, first of all I am working on improving MKV parsing. I believe that good MKV sup...
