  • Are there any plans to include support for HD3870??
    This is still quite a popular card and accelerated playback in Windows XP is working for long time already.

      I removed the libstdc++5 yesterday.
      Because I rather dislike running scripts as root made by others. I also don't want to install mplayer-vaapi, I just want it to live in a directory

      Besides, the script compiles and installs libva and installs xvba_video. I did that manually and it didn't work so I doubt your script would fix it. The fact that the hwdecode-demos said I don't have xvba could be because it didn't find headers, but unless I can get vainfo to actually work with the last xvba_video I'm not even trying to get that to work.

        I think you forgot to digest the ebuild.

        mhh If I could know the package versions of their target distro, with gentoo is quite simple to re arrange the meaningful ebuilds to be at the same version.

          You can be sure the script does not harm your pc, it just hotfixes the packageing error for karmic in case of 9-10. It has serveral other patches for older drivers however.

          Comment


          • Ubuntu Karmic 64-bit works

            I installed using your script (before the libstdc++5 patch) using the jaunty lib. Pretty much works fine. I watched an entire h.264 720p movie but the Planet Earth video sample mentioned in a previous post crashes X.

              But running that mplayer against any file just gives me this:



              Also vaapi is not in the list I get when running ./mplayer -vo help

              If you need more info, let me know. I would really like that hardware acceleration
              Have you compiled and installed the right libva library and headers? Is mplayer looking in the right place for them? Do they have the correct permissions? If mplayer isn't finding VA-API support, one of those is probably your problem.

              • Also even if you don't use the vaapi feature, my script gives you a current svn mplayer (with some extra m2ts soundfix). There is a version with extra patches, thats with 2 instead of 1 and includes mplayer vaapi hotfixes. Of course if you run the script on nvidia hardware you get vdpau AND vaapi support to compare.

                  The same applies to mplayer-vaapi, not trying until vainfo gives me the go ahead

                  @Kano

                  If you could alter the mplayer script to:

                  1) only ask/demand for root *after* commandline options are parsed
                  2) have an option to build all the software but to put the created packages into a dir of the users choosing (or ./ as default)
                  3) have an option to dump the created mplayer into a dir (like --prefix would do I think)

                  then I would be happy to use the script. It would mean root wouldn't be required to build it. Compiling as a normal user is just a lot safer

                  It would totally rock if you could show a "I'm going to do *this*" screen before actually doing it, with a continue prompt. Like apt-get normally does, so you can double check you gave the right options.

                  To put it simple, I'm most interested in 3 while building it as a normal user. If it's too much trouble, forget about it. It's not like vainfo even works for me at the moment.

                  • Maybe you did not fully understand the scripts, all scripts create Debian packages and install em. The mplayer script does not delete the debs, you can fetch em from the /tmp dir. It is impossible to install the apps in a better way on Debian/Ubuntu. You can remove em easyly too with your favorite package manager. It does not use /usr/local or so just when a noob would use checkinstall or so. As the packages depend on each other you could of course use sudo for each dpkg -i command (and the apt-get) and run the rest as user. Feel free to do that mod, i won't do this as the target distro (Kanotix) does not use sudo.

                    • I have the very same issue RemcoL is having. I'm running Fedora 11. Here's the lazy way to get your mplayer with vaapi support and libva:
                      - Install them from http://www.happyassassin.net/video-e...tal/11/x86_64/
                      mplayer-vaapi is named mplayer-accelerated there.
                      - Then unpack the xvba-video package to /usr/lib64/

                      The video card is HD3450 with Catalyst 9.10. Here's what vainfo gives with latest xvba-video:
                      Code:
                      $ vainfo
                      libva: libva version 0.31.0-sds3
                      libva: va_getDriverName() returns 0
                      libva: Trying to open /usr/lib64/va/drivers/fglrx_drv_video.so
                      libva: va_openDriver() returns 0
                      vainfo: VA API version: 0.31
                      vainfo: Driver version: Splitted-Desktop Systems XvBA backend for VA API - 0.5.1
                      vainfo: Supported profile and entrypoints
                      xvba_video: XVBA_CreateContext(): status 11
                      X Error of failed request:  BadIDChoice (invalid resource ID chosen for this connection)
                        Major opcode of failed request:  1 (X_CreateWindow)
                        Resource id in failed request:  0x0
                        Serial number of failed request:  14
                        Current serial number in output stream:  14
                      So, I use xvba-video 0.43 and this is what I get:
                      Code:
                      $ vainfo
                      libva: libva version 0.31.0-sds3

                      libva: va_openDriver() returns 0
                      vainfo: VA API version: 0.31
                      vainfo: Driver version: Splitted-Desktop Systems XvBA backend for VA API - 0.4.3
