One of the keys to playing HD content with a software decoder is intelligent frame dropping. If the A/V goes out of sync, it is quite a severe decoder problem. I notice that ffmpeg has this problem. Anybody know if there's a way to force it to keep in sync?
if your going to make claims like that jrch2k8 at least make sure to use quality 1080 High Profile Cabac x264 Encodes and not some bullish AVIVO Encoded junk Encode from a dix you want to call HD H264 1080p videos.
ok i admit is not that file i played, i tested it with a torrented movie in h264 "the rise of the lycans" but is true i dont know exactly how it was ripped (not a video professional) but is true that it played just fine(and it looked extremly nice in my hdtv) so i kept that pc as HTPC since then.
now i think is very nice transcoded (eye comparison not profesional in anyway) cuz i have the BD of that movie and an sony BD player and if there is any difference in the quality is not visible to me, but like i said im not a video professional
The "bird test" is meant to be a joke in case anyone was wondering. It has been re-encoded at over 100mb/s at points.. Max for "any" currently supported codec is still 40mb/s at 1080p..
That has been a joke "benchmark" floating around for quite some time..
If you re-encode it to proper levels, it will play just fine.
err NO, thats a nice bit of FUD or wrong assumptions there ghost_o .
to be clear, it is Not a joke "benchmark"
it infact plays fine on PS3, popcorn,and the right PC hardware and decoder,as it stands right Now,(putting the video and audio into another container being perfectly fine if you need to OC but No Re-encoding the video to cheat) No re-Encoding down to a lower spec, thats the point.
sure, its hard to decode, but it can be Decoded and played back smooothly Today,coreAVC helps OC.
if Your H.264 Decoder Cant do it. then its time to sit down and seriously refactor YOUR software decoder until it can,just like BetaBoy and his team did.
theres a reason that clip is used as a benchmark and its because its hard to play but not impossible on todays PC hardware, dont blame the clip, use it to see if Your hardware and software decoders good enough, and if not make them good enough like others have done, simples.
will someone please set the 1 minute time for the board back to how it used to be, as more than a minute passes and it wont let you edit Your posts to add or edit them, 10 minutes is a good generic limit if you really must set one.

But is he right that at points the clip is encoded at such high bit rates not reflecting any real world material out there? Because if he is it might be interesting for a select group of people whether or not the clip is playable by H.264 decoder X, but most people won't give a toss about it.
