    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%
    I am experiencing the exact same results! I just installed Ubuntu 9.10 on my notebook with an HD 2600, compiled the latest mplayer-vaapi successfully, and every video I play has blue everywhere!

    I guess I'm going back to Ubuntu 9.04....

    I am afraid if this was meant to be fixed, I would have written "this chip is not supported *yet*". This might get fixed in a future driver release though this is not something that is considered yet. There are other bugs to fix first, thanks for your patience.

    Oh, and I installed it all manually.
    RemcoL, what version of Xorg did you install then? Was it 1.7-4??
    If so, this package has been removed from the Testing branch altogether. I'll try to find it from another source

    ATI Radeon HD 4850, Catalyst 10.1, ubuntu 9.10 64bit

    in mplayer when -vo vaapi is used then colours are wrong - blue and red seem to be swapped. if i use only -va vaapi then it shows correctly, but doesn't seem to help with cpu usage very much (if at all). i see i am not only one with this problem, but according to http://www.splitted-desktop.com/~gbe...ne/xvba-video/ ATI Radeon 4870 should be officially supported. I have 4850 which should use same chipset then 4870 if i am not mistaken (RV770), but maybe its some difference in it which causes problems?

    -va vaapi has no effect if you are not using -vo vaapi. Thus, you would probably be using Xv.

    Concerning your colors problem, there are bugs and this is the current priority. Does this happen with a specific clip only or did you notice that with others too? Please try to post a capture (with a real camera for example). The clip could also help to see if this relates to the known problem. Thanks.

    Note that only H.264 and VC-1 are accelerated. MPEG-4 Part-2 (DivX) are not handled by the HW. Please provide more information: MPlayer version used, likewise for xvba-video and the clip info.

    remco@mirage:~$ apt-cache policy xserver-xorg
    xserver-xorg:
    Installed: 1:7.4+4
    Candidate: 1:7.5+3
    remco@mirage:~$ apt-cache policy xserver-xorg-core
    xserver-xorg-core:
    Installed: 2:1.6.5-1
    Candidate: 2:1.7.4-2

    I have them in my apt cache, so if you can't find them anywhere else, drop me a PM

    Reporting, that I got very similar results on my HD5650 mobility. ( http://imagebin.org/83738 )
    So I guess there's no way to use the gl acceleration with the 5xxx series yet, no xorg.conf tricks might help?
