XBMC on Raspberry Pi - Open Elec, video plays but screen is like volume meter

Hi,

I have a XBMC on Raspberry Pi - Open Elec. Most videos play correctly but some, like DVD, play output like a volume meter.

Probably I need to install some kind of plugin?

Please advise.

J.

Note: I found this, but the video is DVD (TS_VIDEO) not MPEG2 ...?

Install MPEG-2 and VC1 video codecs

In order to play MPEG-2 and VC1 video files, you will need to purchase codec licenses from the Raspberry Pi foundation.

Install the codecs by following these steps:

    Purchase MPEG-2 and VC1 codec license keys
    You will receive the license key from your email within 72 hours
    In Raspbmc, go to Programs > Raspbmc Settings > System Configuration
    Enter the license key from your email to MPEG-2 and/or VC1 codec under the Advanced system settings
    Reboot the system

DVD (TS_VIDEO) is just another name for MPEG2 or a DVD Vob.
mpeg2 is DVD. DVD comes with a standard resolution of 720x576 if the DVD is PAL or ntfs widescreen?
You could try and adjust the resolution on the actual TV via remote control?
DVD vob on gspotmp4 is better suited with high quality, if you Rasberry does not support mpeg2 then yes you need to buy it
