    Okay this one is the first I've seen that actually makes this thing (UNpatched mplayer...i.e. w/o VAAPI) sweat As soon as the birds appear the a-v sync just gets worse and worse and it begins to visibly drop frames, heh. Unfortunately an assert stops the VAAPI-patched mplayer:

    Code:
    mplayer: libvo/vo_vaapi.c:1436: get_surface: Assertion `mpi->number < va_num_surfaces' failed.
    Corrupt video window when this happens. Tried seeking to various starting points (mplayer -ss) with no luck.

    This one I had tried before along with Big Buck Bunny; same results as most of the others: average usage w/o accel, negligible use with.

    Ditto

    This wasn't too bad to begin with, actually...only about 50% usage peak w/o accel.

    Thanks for the links.

    Cheers,
    Jesse

      Whoops, spoke too soon. Even without the -vo vaapi option the patched mplayer crashes. Looks like the checkout-patch-build.sh script from mplayer-vaapi-latest.tar.bz2 build me a borked version of mplayer

          when you use the script i posted you get a fully updated mplayer (it just calls svn up) + a m2ts audiofix for truehd which is not mainline - i do not like to post things on mailinglists.

            Really? Because I can tell you as a matter of fact even including bumpgate effected cards the ATI's have a higher failure rate then the Nvidia cards. For every Nvidia card that was replaced ATI cards were replaced 10 x more. These include the 7500, 2600HD, X1900, X850, 9000 Pro.

            In fact there is a whole section in Apple engineering notes to agents under the heading "ATI distorted video" that all say "Replace the card". In fact most of the extended beyond warranty coverage on some machines such as the eMac had to do with ATI graphics failing.

              to get really high bitrate videos you need a bluray drive - there you have got an average of about 30 mbps with 48 mbps peak with mostly vc1 and some h264 l4.1. maybe some really old ones with mpeg2 too, but did not get those yet.

                  Lol, dude I worked at apple for 5 years so Apple Engineering.

                  One such example Apple Internal KBase 305637.

                  I'm sure if you did some googling you can find what the resolution says.

                  • As a side note, an ATI card was also responsible for killing a dog. Long story short, Apple sent out a replacement ATI card, the courier rang the bell, nobody was home, so he left it in the dog pen (at the owners request). Dog ate the packaging and card and choked on it.

                      I do not like to install patched ffmpeg globally and it does not seem to contain a script that fetches the needed parts from svn. Maybe next week with a test hd.
                      You simply need original libswscale and libavutil for the VAAPI demos.

                        I don't think any sane person can agree on this one...

                          There is already Dirac acceleration but this codec is way inferior to H.264.

                            Exactly, I don't think there has ever been one comparison that has shown dirac to be superior to H.264 in any way shape or form.

                            • Gosh the fanboys from both nvidia & ati are jumping up and down here. Get over it people. Or at least back up claims with proper data.

                                software Engineering is not the same as electronic overheating chip thats destroy customers notebook.

                                your part is software nvidia fail part is elecronic you are not well knows in that one.

                                in software you fail to: Apple sould kick you for the macos 10.6 openGL fullscreen BUG.
