  • r600 gallium vdpau - weird color shift

    Hi guys,

    I'm currently running libdrm xf86-video-ati and mesa

    from latest git (+ ~amd64 gentoo) on a 5850 HD

    and there's some weird color shift with playing vdpau-accelerated videos via adobe-flash on youtube

    yellow seems to be a sort of turquoise/blue-ish

    skin color is blue-ish, too

    take a look at the right how it's supposed to be (yellow)

    another one:

    the sunrise is supposed to be yellow, too

    other random video - where you can see that the skin is blue-ish

    could you please fix it ?

    is this a known problem ?

    Thanks so much for your awesome work - accelerated video works great already =)

    Having the wrong colors is a minor (but annoying) issue

    I'm also facing Smurf mode with r600 vdpau (recent git).

      This seems to be the reason, why adobe has disabled vdpau acceleration in recent flash versions.

      They have problems with their own O-formed hands. I hope they fix this(these).

        seems like this regression / issue got introduced since 11.2: works and has the correct color

        have the wrong color

        haven't tested 32bit - this is with 64bit on 64bit chromium

          I've the same problem. I got both Nvidia and ATI card with me. As far as I know, both have the same problem with Adobe flash. It is Adobe's bug.

          As long as you're using VDPAU this error will occur. You've to disable hardware acceleration.

            Seems like the latest Chrome 32-bit update fixed that. Try again. I also want to know if it works.

              not sure if vdpau is really working but I've at least re-enabled it now via use-flag

              and it seems the regression/issue isn't there anymore:


              ok, not fully activated ...

              display: :0.0 screen: 0
              Failed to open VDPAU backend cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
              Error creating VDPAU device: 1

              will try later and re-compile stuff to see whether it's fixed
