Updated setting of hwaccel in FFmpeg.
This fixes hardware video acceleration on my setup (Windows). Previously had to use software because some of my videos showed only garbage. Good work, thanks a lot for this!

@chrisvg: thanks for testing & confirming the behavior!
@progets: no problem, I'll use Emumovies, it was just that up until now I had used Progetto and they worked nicely in software mode. Seeing that the video played correctly using ffplay, I thought that was worth investigating :)

Thanks all for your help

Yes, I followed the instructions in the FAQ (
Here's the output of attract -v:
Code: [Select]
Attract-Mode v2.2.1 (Linux, SFML 2.3 +FontConfig +RPi +SWF)

Using FFmpeg for Audio and Video.
avcodec 57.75.100 / avformat 57.66.101 / swscale 4.3.101 / swresample 2.4.100

Shaders are not available.
Just to be sure, has anyone tried one of the Progetto videos in Attract Mode? If it's not against forum rules I can upload one somewhere to make it easy for testing.

No it's the other way around: emumovies are ok, but the Progetto VideoSnaps are not (only sound, no video)

thanks for your help, tried that but unfortunately this does not solve the problem (it was already at 256; raspiconfig told me that it cleared some device specific settings, but no luck).

Rpi 3 - audio but no video on some videos

I used the FAQ to update my Retropie + AttractMode, including compiling fmpeg with hardware acceleration support (I had a floob 0.5 image).
Everything went well and I can now play the intro video at 720p (the original at 1080p stil stutters a lot), which is nice.
However, on all the videos from Progetto VideoSnaps (mp4), I get only sound & no video. I tried some vids from emumovies, and those work ok.
After exiting Attract Mode, I tried to play the Progetto videos with ffplay, and they played correctly. Can this be considered as a bug?
If it's any help, Here's the result from ffmpeg -i on one of the videos:

Voted "I downloaded an image", but I just recently updated it by following the FAQ and compiling AM.

On a side note: the buildbot that used to build nightlies for Windows & OSX seems to be down (latest build is from september), do you have plans to restore it? Just asking, if not, I'll try to cross-compile from a VM :)
