problems with mkv files

Reported by: kevinm@… Owned by:

When playing some mkv files, Sapphire attempts to play them as music. It shows a black screen with "Unknown Artist, Unknown Album...etc" even though they are classified as Movies in Sapphire and play fine in both Quicktime and VLC. I have Perian installed, and some mkv files will play fine through Sapphire. When this happens it just shows a blank screen and plays the audio, and the only way to get it to stop is to close Front Row through the Activity Monitor. Even starting another movie does not stop the audio from playing, the new movie just plays over top of the audio from the first selected movie if you don't close Front Row completely.

fixed my own problem, for some reason it had the durations of a bunch of the movies as negative time, and would only play them as audio

just had it refetch meta data and movie info and they work fine now, can close ticket

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Figured that was the issue, but it shouldn't require you to take such action. Anyway, situation should be much better in next version, so closing for that reason as well.
