    Phoronix: OSS R500 Driver Gets Textured Video Too

    When John Bridgman mentioned at his FOSDEM talk that Textured Video support may be arriving soon, we didn't realize that it would end up being just hours away! Shortly after Alex Deucher had committed R100-400 Textured Video support, David Airlie went ahead and implemented Textured Video support for the R500 series. Furthermore, Rotate support has also been added by David for the R500 series...

    The 6.8.0 version is now in the standard Fedora 8 updates. XVideo now works on my X1650Pro. Thank you.

    X1600Xt - XV works. Totem, mplayer, vlc - all work. No tearing, performance is good.

    But TVTime freezes the system. Also Zapping sometimes freezes the system when the channel switching. Also XawTV freezes with -nodga option. It works with -nodga -noxv - but there is no fullscreen video.

    I haven't noticed really. But you don't get that horrible diagonal tearing in fglrx. Another thing I noticed is that the video is redirected. I had enabled the metacity compositing and I had a transparent terminal on top of the video and it was working properly.

    Is there any video tearing?

I get about %40 cpu at 1.6ghz on athlon64 while watching 720p hd channel, and ~15% at 800mhz on regular channels on mythtv fulscreen at 1680x1050. No diagonal tearing or machine lock ups while changing channels like fglrx
    What video player are you using? Do you get the same success using VLC or MPlayer?

    It's been quite some time; but I think I even got that with -vo x11.

    As far as my previous comments on hardware accelerated video decoding, I think that'd be icing on the cake as fglrx doesn't even support it and I doubt it ever will. It effects me more on my R300/Athlon XP machine that I plan on converting to a DVR box than on my Core Duo/R500 laptop.

    As far as video playback goes, does anyone know the advantages of using the "gl2" output driver over xv? (If any, obviously a moot point currently on >=R500 chips now as gl won't work without mesa3d support)

    I'm sure it can't be too far away... if RS690 is already supported then the RV620 can't be far behind.
