  • 690G OpenGL video playback is Green & Purple

    Hi All,
    Finally I have my 690G based computers up and running with open source drivers and everything is running well. Except video playback from within an OpenGL application. Everything is Green and Purple..
    System is Ubuntu 8.10 alpha 5 using the radeon driver

    Using the radeonhd driver the video playback is the correct colours however the performance is so terrible (about 1/10 of radeon) that it's unusable.

    Anyone run into this before or have any suggestions as to how to fix it?

    Is this video playback over a normal monitor (VGA, DVI etc..) or over a TVOut (composite, S-Video, component) ?

      Sounds like a problem in the colorspace conversion. Does it happen with all videos or just certain ones?

      ...wait what do you mean by "video playback from within an OpenGL application"? Are you using Xv or is GL rendering the video?

          Connection is via LVDS, I can try VGA but will have to wait til after the weekend.
          The 'application' is the python libavg framework. Renders everything using openGL sorry I'm not sure on the specific details of how it all works sorry.
          using ffplay works fine I've tested two videos one is mpeg2 the other is an mpeg4 of some variation. I'll check exactly what codecs when I'm near that machine again.

            The output doesn't matter.

            If ffplay uses Xv and it works, I'm guessing it's a problem with the GL code in libavg or the r300 3D driver.

              Is the r300 3D driver common to both radeon and radeonhd? The radeonhd works but with terrible performance, so would that point to it being something in the implementation of the radeon driver?

                The 3D and DRM drivers are common between radeon and radeonhd, although 3D was only fully integrated into radeonhd relatively recently. One possibility is that radeonhd was falling back to software rendering for some reason -- "works but terribly slow" is another way of saying "software rendering"

                Could you pastebin a log with radeonhd ?

                  I can but I'm away at a Tangi for the next few days will post it when I'm back in front of that machine.

                    This is using radeonhd with the xorg.conf options specified in the installing open-source drivers thread in this forum. Uncommenting the DRI option gives a Warning saying Option DRI is not used

                    glxgears performance with this is about 120 FPS as oppose to around 800 with ati-radeon
