AMD's UVD2-based XvBA Finally Does Something On Linux
Starting from (xvba-video_0.7.7.pre1-1_i386), ASS Karaoke effects used in conjunction with plain ASS subtitles, cause the plain ASS subtitles to flicker like crazy. This is on a HD4830, Ubuntu 10.10, Catalyst 10.11, & mplayer-vaapi-20100713.
The subtitle flickering is not present using (xvba-video_0.7.6-1_i386).
I released 0.7.7 normally without your flickering problem. That one could have been caused by a combination of obsolete driver or other bugs. XVBA_VIDEO_PUTSURFACE_FAST=0 to disable the feature in 0.7.7.pre. This is the default for final 0.7.7.
XvBA has public libraries and private headers. OpenVideo has public headers and private (or inexistent) libraries for Linux. Ever seen something right at ATI?
LOL, also they have problems with the win32 install too, their SDK Installation Notes say that you can install it on a PC with a non supported OpenCL Gfx card installed, and still run the CL examples on the CPU, but they Dont
So will support for UVD 1 cards ever be fixed? According to wikipedia UVD 2 cards are the only ones even supported by XvBA
apparently not, gbeauche cant work miracles if the long time bugs he's already reported under NDA to AMD Dont get fixed.
Bridgman, you didn't comment on my other post above , did you miss the request to sort that missing OVDecode library, so people can at least start to look at testing that for video decode on AMD at least...
