    • You could try vlc too:

      http://kanotix.com/files/fix/vlc-vaapi-local.txt

      run the script as root first and then as user. Did you use

      http://kanotix.com/files/fix/mplayer-vaapi-latest.txt

      This script is always a good base for vlc because it installs libva in the system directly and not in the home, in the wrong order it can be possible that an older libva is in the search path first.

      • My script enables webm (encode) support when libvpx-dev is installable. Thats possible in Kanotix or Debian Squeeze. If U would fix

        http://packages.ubuntu.com/

        i would check it for maverick too... But they prefer to have got a broken web frontend.

          -vo vaapi:gl mode? If so, yes, this is a regression fixed for 0.7.2.

            Why should i do that? I need a test card to check xvba on Evergreen. Just a bit stupid to swap the cards all the time...

              Not for the next generation chips coming later this year. IMHO, UVD 3.0 is essentially done already and should bring the following: MPEG-2 VLD, MPEG-4 ASP (DivX), H.264 MVC. At least, this is so if we can believe the current functions available in Catalyst 10.6. For VP8, there is no driver code available yet. I doubt this will be ready for 2010. Probably for Evergreen + 2 in 2011. But I don't know, who knows? Bridgman?

              • @Kano: I always update vaapi using your latest mplayer script, then I install vlc-vaapi with your script.

                I'm pleased to see vlc runs fine now on most h.264 files with osd display fine, so way less hulk green than it was a month ago.

                @gbeauche: yes, I run mplayer like this:
                Code:
                mplayer -cache 9182 -vo vaapi:gl -va vaapi <videofile>.ts
                So I'll wait for 0.7.2 then, thank you for mentioning this.

                • vlc is much better for ts then mplayer usually. Also vlc can show m2ts subtitles, so it is a huge improvement. Just xvideo is still flickering...

                  • @Kano: how is your cpu load using vlc-vaapi compared to mplayer-vaapi?

                    I realized mine is about 30% with vlc, while only 10% with mplayer

                    vlc is run like like on a 720p source of Das Erste HD:

                    vlc --ffmpeg-hw <videofile>.ts

                    mplayer run as mentioned in my posting above.

                    cpu load is measured with ksysguard (kde system monitor)

                    • Why don't you use vdr/streamdev? I have got problems with a/v sync with das erste/zdf hd and mplayer. do you use vlc with xvideo/default output or glx?
