    well, on my i945 + mesa 7.8 + some commented out FALLBACKS(), wined3d works pretty well (watching demos, playing trackmania nations forever, worms3d, mafia etc.)

    Do NOT try h264 l5.1, that's lost time...
    I had tried it on a HD4830, and the l5.1 video played back part of a previously played l4.1 video along with content of the l5.1. ...Wherever the l4.1 ended, the last few frames rendered will show up in the playback of the l5.1.

    So, if you have the right l4.1 video on hand, your kids could watch a l5.1 video of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, while you can enjoy a series of boob shots on the side. Thanks ATI!

    had to do some googling, as i've never actually seen anyone pose that question, or comment on the subject of it.


    but the impression i got from reading on the wine mailing list some was that the situation for intel cards is much worse then the one for AMD ones.

    which isn't really suprising.

    I tried many different settings in amdcccle including the default config. If you look in the wrong direction at a wrong angle it just freezes. At this canal it was everytime. I tried a geforce 8800gt right after that in the same PC and same wine config etc. and it worked extremely well. Unfortunately the card seems to have a memory error.

    It's been stated several times on this forum and others how gfx cards work. One of the main problems with computer graphics is the amount of gray areas that exist (read: the features and functions that aren't explicitly defined/covered by the specs). People who follow graphics technology have acknowledged this. Developers have acknowledged this. Hell even bridgman himself acknowledged this. All we can do is hope DirectX 11 games work better with ATi - seeing as how they had DX11 cards a full 6 months before Nvidia produced one.

    I don't know if this was a wise decision...

    Many of the newer home video cameras are capable of recording at a 4.2 level now. [email protected]
