    Should I just delete the dist directory created by your script to clean my vlc installation attempt?

    Then I will download the vlc-api and compile it myself.

    Thanks Kano

      Well you can clean the dist dir before running the script. But run the script as root first. Basically vlc is not hard to compile when libva-dev is globally installed.

        Afaik, you can set the output device directly in your smplayer options. But there seems to be a general problem with your sound output.

          I found what was the issue with Mplayer cmd line used by SMplayer. In order to be able to launch the Mplayer I add to remove these two items:
          -wid 39846231
          -wid <window ID> (also see -guiwid) (X11, OpenGL and DirectX only)
          This tells MPlayer to attach to an existing window. Useful to
          embed MPlayer in a browser (e.g. the plugger extension). This
          option fills the given window completely, thus aspect scaling,
          panscan, etc are no longer handled by MPlayer but must be man‐
          aged by the application that created the window.
          and
          -vf-add pp
          pp[=filter1[ption1[ption2...]]/[-]filter2...] (also see -pphelp)
          Enables the specified chain of postprocessing subfilters. Sub‐
          filters must be separated by ’/’ and can be disabled by prepend‐
          ing a ’-’. Each subfilter and some options have a short and a
          long name that can be used interchangeably, i.e. dr/dering are
          the same. All subfilters share common options to determine
          their scope:
          a/autoq
          Automatically switch the subfilter off if the CPU is too
          slow.
          Do you think I should open a case within SMplayer for tracking purposes? As we are using the mplayer-vaapi version I am not sure it will be relevant for them but I can still to so.

            FYI I have opened a case and I will keep you updated.

            I ll give it a try to vlc-vaapi now. (If I face issues I may have to open a new thread otherwise it gets confusing)

              Like you, wanting to build a HTPC based on Linux and Core i3 (using integrated GPU).

              I was wondering if you are able to output 23.976 Hz? (at 1080p) (which is the framerate of most blu-rays) instead of 24Hz which Intel supports wrongly in Windows?

              It's very important otherwise you will get a minor stutter every so.

                That's interesting. On Windows, Linux also, I think I have that "micro stuttering". It's not 100% fluent. Could you describe it a little in detail?

                  Most blu-ray movies available at presented in 23.976 fps, which your TV multipiles to give you 60/100/120 etc. It is rounded up to 24 for the average consumer.

                  Intel only supports 24.000 Hz output on Windows (I am not sure if it is a driver issue or hardware limitation).

                  As the framerate doesn't exactly match, you will get a stutter on blu-ray playback.

                  I am hoping the same issue does not affect Linux drivers.

                  The reason it is 23.976 Hz is due to an incompatibility in the 50s with some FM transmitters in the USA (at 60Hz) which was dropped to a multiple of 23.976 to fix the problem).

                    Have you tried 23.976 in your xorg.conf?

                        I am waiting to pull the trigger on a purchase, so I haven't got the system to test. It's quite a lot of money if I can't get this thing to work!!

                          Atm, I've got no free time. Anyway, I'll check it till Mid September. You say, on Windows it is not possible? Whatever I set up in eg. MPC-HC?

                            On Windows, not possible. Intel have ignored the issue.

                              You have got this issues even in a cinema when the camera is moving. That's because 24 fps is a bit slow, you only see 3 to 4 times the same picture there. Some tvs "optimize" the effect with additional generated pictures inbetween (100/200 hz) which is smoother but has soap effect then.

                                At least for my stutter: Mpeg2 (DVD) runs completly fluent. SD+ resolutions don't. Perhaps I've got another stutter than yours?
