    It is impossible to see improvements with XvBA but at least it is not completly broken. My script can install it on Ubuntu up to 9.10. Debian testing/sid is impossible. Kanotix works of couse or Debian stable.

    Kano, I used your script and successfully installed Cat 10.1 on Debian lenny, with kernel 2.6.32-trunk-amd64.

    However, when I attempt to run mplayer-vaapi with gbeauchesne's latest XvBA wrapper, I get this error message:

    MPlayer SVN-r30302-4.3.2 (C) 2000-2009 MPlayer Team

    I'll try running your script on Debian squeeze and see how that works. If not, I will just revert to 9.10 or 9.12 and wait; no problem.

    I just have to say big thanks to you, gbeauche and the folks at AMD for helping us with libamdxvba!

    Alright, I tried Cat 10.1 with libamdxvba1 on Ubuntu 9.04 with an HD 2600 mobile, and received the error that I posted above.
    I just tested 10.1 with an HD 3300 and an HD 3870 and received the same error messages, but this time with Debian lenny. I'll try with Debian Testing next.

    Err, sorry the "nvidia" script can be used to test mplayer vaapi with NVIDIA, for ATI you need this one - the nvidia script does nothing with ati cards

    I'm on squeeze with 2.6.32-trunk-amd64, 10.1 and all the latest VAAPI stuff, and it works. I did not install the latest X server update though, since I heard it would break everything because fglrx doesn't support that version yet.

    Oh, and I installed it all manually.

    What video card are you using?
    I tried the exact same procedure as you but could not make this work on my notebook with an HD 2600, running Debian squeeze.

    i installed catalyst 10.1 on Ubuntu 9.10
    download libva libva-dev xvba-video packages from http://www.splitted-desktop.com/~gbeauchesne/ and install it.
    then download mplayer-vaapi-latest.tar.bz2 too.
    apt-get buil-dep mplayer
    ./checkout-patch-build.sh
    script successfully download and compiled whle mplayer.
    when i try play file ./mplayer some-file.mp4 it work.
    when i try run ./mplayer -vo vaapi -va vaapi some-file.mp4 i get this

    CPU usage is 0-1% so acceleration work
    add -vo vaapi:gl[:reflect] is same.

    using only -vo vaapi withou -va vaapi lead to normal output only colors is switched. people have blue faces. and CPU usage is 20-30%

    using only -va vaapi is normal but CPU is still 20-30%

    Hey, this looks like my cat! Unfortunately, XvBA does not work on Radeon HD 5xxx series. This is an unsupported chip. Is this what you used?
