might wish to follow this thread http://xbmc.org/forum/showthread.php?t=50721
also found that killing the pulse process allows playback of some video
and audio but then I got a seg fault
also the “disable pulse” option did nothing, might be a compile time
I am not sure what video formats your video are. Is there the possibility that your video are not XBMC playable video formats.
The video codec that XBMC supports are MPEG-1, MPEG-2, H.263, MPEG-4 SP and ASP, MPEG-4 AVC (H.264), HuffYUV, Indeo, MJPEG, RealVideo, RMVB, Sorenson, WMV, Cinepak.
If you would like to view your video files in XBMC Media Player, the best way is converting your video to one of its supportable video format listed above, like MPEG-1, or MPEG-2. As for XBMC Video Converter, I recommend Aunsoft Video Converter for Mac which has a perfect performance in encoding various formats of video, like AVI, MP4, MKV, FLV, TiVo to MPEG for XBMC Media Player.
