mplayer is now working with vdpau - heavily reduced cpu load :)

thanks a lot!

MPEG2 content should be vdpau accelerated through either xine or mplayer.  What container format (File extension) are the files?
hi, its m2ts - played via mplayer.

works very well - cpu load reduced. mplayer now gets about 24-28% depending on the movie. great work!

there is only one problem when i try to play movies recorded with my video camera (sony HDR-TG7VE). the movie itself is replaying very slowly, the audio in real time. so its getting out of sync in the first second and delays about 2-3 seconds each frame.
tech details: High Definition, AVCHD (1920 x 1080, 1440 x 1080)/Standard Definition, MPEG2

i recorded all the stuff in full HD - do i need to run that through a codec so that i can play it smoothly?

What i am doing? Trying to install the package Phenigma created.
I do have mplayer-player, but with no vdpau support.

The changes are in svn so the next beta update, which the wiki says is building now, should include the new mplayer-player package.  Wait for the update to finish and do an apt-get update/apt-get upgrade on your system.

hi - thanks for your integration of vdpau into mplayer. i will test that today and give you some feedback.

where is this wiki page that tells you about the build process?

hi there,

i tagged about 50% of my movies now via IMDB and it works very well. The only problem i figured out is, that with german movies, it wont work that well or you have to edit atleast the title since the titles sometimes differ from the english language.
since imdb has also a german translation ( it would be nice if you could parse the german imdb instead of the english one.

is there anything planned on this? if not, i would try to get my hands on this since imdb supports english, german, italian, spanish, portugese and french.

thanks a lot for that!
i think using VDPAU is a great feature and improvement - looking forward to hear from your results.

do you change anything else then the parameter passed to mplayer?

4th post in a row - sorry about that ;)

i was able to configure the VDPAU support for xine by using the configuration screen provided by xine itself.
no tearing, perfect graphic quality, playing a 720p movie without lagging, 10-20% usage of the cpu.

thats how i wanted it :)

how can i do that with mplayer? using the same method by opening mplayer, configuring it, closing it, playing movie in LMCE doesnt work since its calling with the start parameters -vo "xv, x11"

i tried setting the hardware acceleration mode to vdpau - but it wont work:
dcerouter_1008040:/home/firemail/vdpinfo# ps aux | grep mplayer

so its still using xv,x11 instead of vdpau, eventhou my mplayer tells me it supports vdpau

i found this thread:
posted on the 09.12.2009 saying that there is still a patch pending, the wiki from 06.12.2009 says that its included

so whats the truth now? does this setting work or is it unsupported at the moment?

i got rid of this tearing effect.

first i tried using different drivers - no effect.
using envy to configure the drivers - didnt work.

I switched down to the "static images" mode - tearing gone.
Upgraded to "medium effects" - tearing gone.

so its indeed the high-end mode that makes the tearing. I try to add vdpau to xine and mplayer and then retry using high-end mode. maybe the VDPAU reduces the CPU load so that high-end works without tearing

i will try to use the "basic" mode instead of the "high-end", lets see if it works better then.

so what do you think? switching the graphiccard to a different modell?

thanks a lot for all those answers. i will do research on vadpau and the downgrading to medium on thursday since i am in vienna tomorrow doing business.

the graphic card is a Zotac GT240 512 DDR3, PCI-Express, Dual Link DVI, PN 288-2n130-010ZT

thought thats a good one - the hybrid is brand new :-/

There's a choice of...

1. UI1
2. UI2 with masking, and
3. UI2 with alpha blending.

Which one have you selected?
you mean in the initial setup screen? i just saw "high-end" which is UI2 with alpha blending ;)
but as i stated before, the graphiccard is high end, the cpu is a quadcore plus while the movie is shown there shouldnt be any rendering done.
