Can you play videos from the command line outside Myth with the same
flags that you use or are you refering to recorded shows you would like
to watch after they have been recorded through the internal viewer? Any
error messages? Crashes? Which player do you use, Xine or mplayer?
Are the video library mounted on the Xbox? What are you running;
Xebian1.1.x or gentoox?
I'm running an Xbox as a frontend and had no luck with mplayer at all,
Xine on the other hand worked like a charm for both DVD's and video. I
couldn't watch video with mplayer at all, I could select one, and the
screen would freeze and then return to the listing. Turned out that
mplayer segfaulted for some reason, still unknown, Xine didn't though so
now I use that.
I'm running Xebian-1.1.4 with 0.18.1
I hope that this will give you some guidance in your search!
