Thanks for your work in providing your ppa. I have a little nettop that has the amd e-450 chip with radeon 6350 hd chip. processor is dual 1.6. This is dedicated to mythtv frontend and hopefully xbmc. after installing your ppa with the vdpau acceleration, using vdpau in both myth and xbmc i get a much lower processor rate, but frame rate of less than half of what the material is. in myth it is all mpeg2, mostly at high def. in xbmc i have a lot of h264. the h264 at higher definition is not playable.
using the amd fglrx with xvba, xbmc with xvba compiled in, the h264 acceleration works very well and all is playable at less than 20 per cent cpu however the mpeg2 is not as good and i get a little bit of tearing on the mpeg2 hd on myth and about 15 per cent higher cpu, mostly around 70 per cent on the mpeg2 hd.
are there any settings or anything else i can do to get the vdpau acceleration on the mpeg2 to work, and is there any settings i can make to get h264 to play better.
currently i am using xorg edgers ppa because the mpeg2 was slightly better than this ppa (oliaf). after putting that in there is no libg3dvl so i could not check the vdpau. i installed a lib3gdvl package from ubuntu, but it crashed the video in vdpau.
this is on mythbuntu which is ubuntu 12.04 with a kernel supplied by xorg edgers (3.5 series). any help from anyone who can give any advice on settings or alterations to get these things working would be most greatly appreciated.
So by installing this package I get the latest open source drivers? This works for AMD and Nvidia drivers as well? Everytime I run the command "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" I will get the latest drivers?
Also does this include the latest features enabled, like ATI Hyper Z and other stuff I've seen in phoronix benchmarks?
