Firstly, I apologize for any semantic errors in the title with respect to x264. Also, yes I have tried to find other similar posts on this and other sites. I haven't been able to find any answers that work via multiple search engines.
I see artifacts when I try to view anything encoded for x264. Often these artifacts will encompass nearly the whole screen. This happens irrespective of audio codec or resolution (tested 720p and 1080p). The sound works flawlessly and no video stuttering. The following is an extreme example of what happens: http://i.stack.imgur.com/Jnbbn.png
Why am I seeing these artifacts and can this problem be fixed? If so, how? If not, why?
I'm using the 512MB version of the Raspberry Pi and have Raspbmc installed (one of the latest git builds). I've tried multiple versions of Raspbmc (including release) without success. I've purchased and verified installation of the proprietary codecs sold on the Raspberry site. The following shows the BD Player audio support that the Pi is connected to via HDMI:
PCM supported: Max channels: 2, Max samplerate: 96kHz, Max samplesize 24 bits.
AC3 supported: Max channels: 6, Max samplerate: 48kHz, Max rate 640 kb/s.
DTS supported: Max channels: 6, Max samplerate: 48kHz, Max rate 1536 kb/s.
My config.txt resembles the following:
I'm using audio pass-through to my BD Player as far as I can tell from the XBMC settings. That is, I have the DTS and AC3 options selected in the audio settings menu.
