3D H.264 MKV playback in 2D (not asking for 3D support)

Post by mukiex » 14 Aug 2018, 01:24

Platforms tested:
iPhone X
iPad Pro (A9 chip)

Issue:
When playing an MKV file with a 3D H.264/MVC video track, most media players will default to playing the 2D H.264 stream, especially if they do not support 3D MVC.

However, in MrMC, I get a failure to play regardless of which acceleration method is used:

- Under VideoToolbox (AVFoundation is disabled) : File opened, MrMC asks for a 3D playback method, and then never loads a new image. That is, it still shows the file menu. When the back button in the menu is pressed a few times, the playback begins to load in a very glitchy way (the playback bar starts flashing on-screen). Audio does not play.
- Under AVFoundation (VideoToolbox is disabled) : File opened, MrMC asks for a 3D playback method, and then displays a black screen. Audio plays in full. In addition, MrMC is able to generate a thumbnail of the file.

I can provide a sample MKV (10 seconds, 57MB) via PM if it's helpful.

Not sure if this is a known issue, and I'm mostly raising it because beyond that small flaw, MrMC is pretty much the gold (platinum?) standard for a media player in iOS for me.

Try disabling all acceleration and try it again. It worked for me on tvOS and iOS.
