  • No, only 9.10 FINAL not the beta from U works + 9.12 hotfix.

    Make a backup of /etc/ati/control and in case you get a watermark copy it back. My script installs the correct 9-12 hotfix:

      Thx.

      Sure it isn't /etc/ati/signature I have to backup and replace when installed? /etc/ati/control didn't work. I still have the watermark.

        • Don't use gl.

            Only when you install it manually, my script fixes missing signatures now on the fly. There are 2 watermarks, the hardware watermark is shown when the control file does not include the pci id of your card (or whatever it checks).

            Also you need to test h264 or vc1 - are you sure that your avi is not just divx?

              Sorry but what do you mean. If I just use mplayer -vo vaapi -va vaapi ./movie.avi

              It does the same.

                  Please, there is no reason to be rude. I just didn't read the last line of yours.

                  • Well it works wonderful now. I can see a 1280x532 movie (x264 as kano stated) without any problems at all. Activating v-sync and with opengl tearing is gone. My subtitles also works fine.

                    Nice to see AMD/ATI improving.

                    EDIT:
                    oh and mplayer only uses about 7 % cpu while playing the movie

                    • You are a lucky guy really, because i have got LOTS of h264 which does not work. With 9-10 i had even system crashes with some testfiles. vc1 works more stable however.
