    PLugin doesn't work under MC8.3.1

    Hi Don
    in these days we have a customer that is using our material under MediaComposer and our plugin doesn't work on his machine.
    Customer have a PC equipped with Window 7 Professional SP1 English Version with MediaComposer 8.3.1.
    I made some test with Media Composer 8.3.0 under Windows 8.1 and all works fine excluding
    the exporting problem I solved as reported in other section of this forum.  Now the problem is that the customer doesn't
    see the images; that is it can import correctly, all data displayed are ok, but the preview window remains green
    (same result if he drags clip on timeline).  So I equipped a PC with some OS (Window 7 Professional SP1
    English Version) and installed initially Media Composer 8.3.1 and experienced the same problem.
    So I make this other test: Uninstalled Media Composer 8.3.1 and installed MC 8.3.0.  Well,
    importing clip now all works fine.  Same results with Windows 8.1 professional.  At this point there
    should be some little variations that prevent decding.  In order to debug I inserted an
    OutputDebugString in every function.  The clip is long 400 frames and dragging it from
    bin to preview I see two calls to SampleMapping:: GetSamplePosition for track 0 (video track).
    One for sample 0 and one for sample 400. But noSampleMapping::ProvideSampleRange calls and
    consequently no decoding.

    Any suggestion ?

    Re: PLugin doesn't work under MC8.3.1

    Hi

    I made some further inquiry and found that sequence of calls change from MC8.3.0 to MC 8.3.1

    In detail MC 8.3.0:

    00000030    10.98417473    [4672] BLTAPluginSampleMapping::DecodeField ok

     

     

    As you can see there is a call to RegisterSampleRangeHint and Prefetch with susequent ProvideSampleRange and Decode. 

    While in the MC8.3.1 the sequence is:

    That is we have a call to SetStorageCallback (not present in 8.3.0) and subsequent GetSamplePosition for video track (track 0) and first and last sample. But no other calls.

    Re: PLugin doesn't work under MC8.3.1

    Hi

    from further investigation I have a doubt: May be that the defaultUncompressedID was changed ?

    My value is:

            const acfUID ContainerWriterPrivate::defaultUncompressedID = {0x04010201, 0x0000, 0x0000, {0x06, 0x0e, 0x2b, 0x34, 0x04, 0x01, 0x01, 0x01}};

    and is passed inside ContainerWriter::GetMediaWriterParameterwhen id equal AMA_MC_ExportVolumeVideoEssenceCoding_ID:

    .....

                else if (id == AMA_MC_ExportVolumeVideoEssenceCoding_ID)
                {
               //      pValueUID->InitializeValue(ACFTypeID_UID, &ContainerWriterPrivate::defaultJP2KCodingID, sizeof(acfUID));
                    pValueUID->InitializeValue(ACFTypeID_UID, &ContainerWriterPrivate::defaultUncompressedID, sizeof(acfUID));
                    *pParameter = pValueUID.detach();
                }

     

    I found that passing the defaultJP2KCodingID the result is the same.  May be that MC8.3.1 uses a slight different key

    for defaultUncompressedID?  I don't see the call to ProvideSampleRange like if MC knows how to decode or attempts to decode it.

    regards
