MC2 Post 1602 A No-Go on XBMC's Frodo but Still OK with EDEN

About a month and a half after the release of XBMC 12.1, we are happy to announce XBMC 12.2 with substantial fixes  for 12.1 and 12.0 across all platforms.


Fixes include:

    Fixed infinite loop on addon dependencies, resolves crashing problem that arrose immediately post 12.1 launch
    Numerous UPnP fixes
    Memory leak fixed when XBMC is minimized
    Various Raspberry Pi playback fixes and software codec support
    Fixed OSX audio mixing
    Fixed some audio-related crashes in Linux builds
    AirPlay fixes
    Bluray folder resume-bookmarks now work
    Ability to scan for new content on file folders has been reimplemented
    Language updates from Transifex

While a Nice Tidy List of Fixes, the Problem I was having on my Window's 7 Desktop  (HP Compaq) machine was No-Sound-Output whatever.

What to Do?


An Easy Fix for this Open Source styled Software was to Fall-Back to a Previous VERSION.  

In this Case, it was Eden.   I installed the previous release Over the newly installed Latest release,  hit the start program button and Bam, my older version XBMC had beautiful sound once again.

If you noticed the fixes list of  Frodo, you'll see that XBMC has a special compressed version of XBMC just for the Do-it-Yourself computer know as the Raspberry PI.

The incredible performance of that XBMC version is a good reason why the PI has become a Must Have and Easy to Build Media Center.
