    I've been struggling with AMD Video acceleration and HDMI audio for many many many years (mostly using MythTV, but also with XBMC w/ and w/o xvba. My final verdict is: it's all crap compared to a...

    I'm all for OSS to be sure, but let's not forget that those closed source drivers are giving NV users very decent video acceleration and HDMI audio support, and have been doing so for ages. Something...

    OpenGL video output

    Note this may apply to other video players, not just mythtv.

    Also sorry if you feel I should better be posting to any of the myth lists. But I already did, and the fact of the matter is that 90%...

    Indeed, although corresponding builds are quite well available. One which is particularly well related to this forum is the xvba+pvr version.

    What I find most lacking though is proper support...

    Yeah, and please be sure to report back how it went! :-)
  6. Seeing is believing

    You can say that again.



    Last time I checked (yesterday) MPEG2 was not working on my r600 hw. It only gave me green stripes and a hanging X server in full screen.

    I will only believe it if I...
  7. Slow window movement in Unity3d

    Hm. I'm running on r300g (which is supposed to be more or less on par with Catalyst by now, right?) and the sync to vblank didn't change a thing. Very dissappointing experience, so much so in fact...

    My question to the questions & answers

    Thanks for doing this Q&A panel talk, but I'm afraid the the video and sound quality is very poor to actually enjoy this. Was my question actually being discussed? Given that it was the only real...
  9. Sure; what I meant, though, is that a clean...

    Sure; what I meant, though, is that a clean install of 11.04 defaults to using Unity, as does 11.10, so I'd have expected that he compares that. I wouldn't be too surprised if 11.04 with Unity is...
  10. Clean install?

    Michael - I'm wondering if I'm reading that system table right: you say you're comparing clean install's, so why uses that one system GNOME 2.32.2 and not Unity as Desktop? Given the poor state Unity...
  11. Work against API fragmentation

    Ok so here's my question, from a Linux perspective obviously:

    Over decades, the X-Window system used to be a common denominator for many Unix variants. However, today we see heavy fragmentation on...
  12. How does flash deal with video refresh rate? xrandr?

    Subject says it all - I always wondered if or in what way flash depended on the video refresh rate. I mean, a video will always play best with its original refresh rate, yet I haven't yet seen any...

    LLVMpipe as fallback for incomplete hardware drivers?

    Does this also mean that LLVMpipe is used where a hardware driver does not implement a specific feature? Or is the fallback always to soft-pipe? If so, why?

    It appears to be not that simple, as the MythTV folks tried to explain to me the other day. Besides, putting the image on the screen is an activity which may or may not be accelerated, just think...
  15. How about testing GL video performance?

    Michael, have you consired adding a video playback benchmark to that set of tests? OpenGL video playback is yet another area where the OSS drivers could use improvement, so that might make a good...

    MythTV

    [QUOTE=phoronix;208467]Phoronix: Finally, Intel G45 VA-API Support Is Available

    Sadly, the Mythbuntu folks recently disabled packaging VA-API support, AFAICT you now need to build MythTV from...

    I don't think you've quite gotten the point here. All of those userland programs you refer to are directly dependent on kernel functionality. Leaving the userland program stable and just exchanging...

    kernel .config

    Maybe I'm just stating the obvious but have you compared the kernel .config files with each other? For instance, if the default config starts using a higher CONFIG_HZ setting you'll have a much...

    OpenGL Performance on OS X

    Stupid question: how are OpenGL tests carried out on OS X in those benchmarks - do they access the native OpenGL of the OS or is the X server involved? As far as I know the Mac OS X server is only...
  20. Hats off!

    Hats off to the guy, I just read the original email and the man seems bloody serious about this! I find it particularly convincing that he claims to already have a good understanding of H.264. Lets...
