When I connect a xine-network client to vdr w/vdr-xine, the video
stutters, frame rate is 2-5 FPS, video freezes for several seconds, there
is 2-4 seconds of normal video (with normal audio) then it freezes and the
whole process repeats. Network is 100 Mbps switched Ethernet with all
machines using 100 Mbps Full-Duplex connections. I am not using any
plug-ins other than xine (no EPG, etc, etc). All channels seem to operate
the same way.
I did modify VDR's FRAMESPERSEC and set it to 30 (for NTSC).
Oddly, if I use xine on the vdr machine and launch it localhost, video is
fine, audio is fine, I can change channels, etc! Everything seems to work
I have tried two different clients, completely different hardware and
Linux distros with same results.
Xine-lib is compiled on all three machines identically, first RH's
xine-lib patch applied, then the network patch. One machine is a K7 2800+
MP, GeForce Ti4600 w/nVidia drivers, etc. Second machine is a P3 700 MHz
with S3 video.
I also notice sometimes if I connect with the client, the host will report
"wrong version", particularly, if the client was forced to disconnect
Here are the versions of what I am using:
- VDR 1.3.44
- vdr-xine 0.7.8
Network patch from:
