Hi,

If you are doing this while the device is powered, you'll need to edit config.txt from the DietPi-RAMdisk location:

Code: Select all

nano /DietPi/config.txt
Then add accordingly:

Code: Select all

decode_MPG2=0000000000

decode_WVC1=0000000000
If you've already done this, let me know and we'll look into it.

Hi,

Do the codecs return any results when probed?

Code: Select all

vcgencmd codec_enabled MPG2
vcgencmd codec_enabled WVC1

Thanks.

I've created a ticket, will purchase codecs and try to replicate the issue:

Hi,

DVD.iso test file worked for me in Kodi:
https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issue ... -282054530
Both mentioned enabled
if the following report enabled, it may be an issue with your DVD/Blueray iso, possibly incompatible format?

Code: Select all

root@DietPi:~# vcgencmd codec_enabled MPG2
MPG2=enabled
root@DietPi:~# vcgencmd codec_enabled WVC1
WVC1=enabled
Either way, please try the DVD test iso and see if that works for you.
