AmiTube on AROS64

Posted by ALB42 on 12. Februar 2022No Comments

As I said last time AmiTube on AROS64 is kind of useless because no player for MPEG or CDXL available, but actually there is. There is an MPlayer available, so I added it to the distribution and linked it in AmiTube and got a crash. Mplayer needs a lot of stack and it is too small, even I set the stack higher when calling Mplayer still the same, debugoutput suggests the stack is not properly given to the app called by AmiTube. I filed a bug report, lets see how fast that is handled.

As workaround I created a script to call mplayer with the right stack and voila it plays as it should be.

Time for a little video

Two things to notice, first when loading the remote list the list is totally destroyed, this is what I meant with the font size calculation is wrong, because what it does is to draw all the text over each other and also the column lines suggest that it calculated the font width as zero, but when you select the entries it cures the problem, I heard that it also happens on 68k AROS.

the second thing some people told me they are unable to place the movie directory into RAM and then play with MPlayer from it, as you see it works smoothly without any problems.
