Installation issues / Re: NVIDA H264 Codec
« on: February 25, 2010, 05:07:06 am »
So I tried this on my Zotac ION under LMCE and mplayer is not using VDPAU acceleration under LMCE.  I checked in the svn and the video values below are currently hard-coded into MPlayer_Player.  The wiki says the functionality was added in Beta2 "Update 2009-12-06 22569" but the code doesn't appear to be in svn.  So no VDPAU with mplayer under LMCE currently.  MPlayer is using xv and can't keep the video in sync with the audio.

On the up side the af options and the channels option in the config appear to work with mplayer to enable the on-the-fly ac3 re-encode.

Code: [Select]
root@moon40:~/.mplayer# ps ax | grep mplayer
  833 pts/11   S+     0:00 grep mplayer
30686 pts/9    Rl+    1:45 mplayer -slave -idle -msglevel all=4 -noborder -fixed-vo -fs -vo xv,x11 -vf screenshot -ao alsa:device=asym_spdif -ac hwac3,hwdts,a52, -lavdopts fast:threads=2 /usr/pluto/share/black.mpeg

Installation issues / Re: 810 b2 install - no menu items?
« on: February 25, 2010, 02:07:23 am »
Did you get all the way through the Setup Wizard on your initial install?  The scenarios are first defined and created at the end of the Media Player portion of the Setup Wizard.  Try running the Media Player Setup in the Setup Wizard and see if it creates the scenarios.

I'll try this under LMCE tonight and see what happens on my end.

did the link to the package get sorted yet?
if not, what deb do i need to download and install with dpkg?

Not sure if the repo is working correctly, you could always try installing it yourself and see what happens.  Follow the directions for the N800 on the wiki and use the Maemo5/Fremantle installation.  It will work or throw an error.  I don't remember the specific package file names, I used apt from a terminal on the N900 and a web browser pointing at the repo to find the 2 .deb files when the links were incorrect and then used dpkg to install the .deb files.  If the repo is functioning the process is fairly automatic.

The 7600GS doesn't support VDPAU acceleration.  Just because hardware works in Windows doesn't mean that it will work in Linux, software drivers are very different and there are different levels of compatibility under Linux than Windows because of this.

Turn off the VDPAU, your system should be failing back to OpenGL anyways.  You will have to remove the 'vo=...' and 'vc=...' section of the mplayer config file as well.  The system will then rely on your CPU for the decoding and it will need to be hefty to do a good job with h264 media.  Do some searching on the forums there have been discussions about non-vdpau requirements for 1080P playback.

My immediate recommendation would be to ditch the 7600GS and get an 8xxx or 9xxx card with VDPAU acceleration.  Havn't looked myself but I remember posts where people have said a PCI-e 9xxx something or other could be had for around $30.  

Check out nvidia's vdpau hardware compatibility list: http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/190.53/README/appendix-a.html

Stupid questions guys
I am assuming my MD is using xine as the default player for my m2ts files and that's why it is having trouble playing the HD 1920 x 1080 home movies with the video in slow motion but the sound is perfect.

Xine is the default player for almost all media in LMCE.  Xine can play 1080P content with VDPAU acceleration with no problem.  Your MD should be playing m2ts files should with mplayer by default.

So how would I make the default player as mplayer as this may fix my problem....

This I'm not sure of and it is certainly not recommended as LMCE doesn't have full control of mplayer.

I'll try some more when I come home. So I have some mkv that play fine, others play only in mplayer- renamed to m2ts, but badly out of synch....my guess was that this might have something to do with vdpau not working correctly with mplayer...but thats just a shot in the dark on my part

VDPAU works great in mplayer on my Zotac ION 330.  Playing through a network I have had to add a buffer '-cache 8192' I think does it at the command line, this can probably be added to the config file.

Try commenting out the final line.

Are you running mplayer from LMCE or the command line?

I don't recall where I found this, it works well with mplayer from the command line for AVC/AAC encoded material on my Zotac ION 330 with vdpau.  I don't know what this does under lmce as I havn't tested that yet.  This should work properly with AVC/MPEG1&2/WMV/VC1 video encoded media and AAC/AC3/DTS encoded media.

If your on the core you would need to create ~/.mplayer/config and on an MD this would be /root/.mplayer/config instead.  The file I use looks like this:
Code: [Select]
#Set Video output to VDPAU and use appropriate codecs
vo=vdpau
vc=ffh264vdpau,ffmpeg12vdpau,ffwmv3vdpau,ffvc1vdpau
# Set AC3/DTS PASSTHROUGH and ON THE FLY AC3 RE-ENCODING FOR 6 CHANNEL AAC FILES
ao=alsa:device=hw=0.1
afm=hwac3
channels=6
af=scaletempo,lavcac3enc=1:640:3

This is the only way I have found to on-the-fly re-encode AAC multi-channel encoded files to AC3 so my optical SPDIF connection will pass the surround sound properly.  Without this you would require an HDMI audio connection to pass AAC multi-channel audio properly.

Anyways, I'm not entirely sure if this helps you or not but there it is.

I'm not at home right now but I have AAC multi-channel audio over SPDIF working in mplayer from the command line, havn't figured out where/how to put the config to work from LMCE yet.  I'll post what I have done when I get home later today, maybe you can take it the next step.

Users / Re: Kernel Panic with e100 NIC
« on: February 20, 2010, 11:42:11 pm »
Has the core created a directory for the media director under /usr/pluto/diskless/## yet?

If the core has created the diskless directory for the media director then the tftp server will serve up /tftpboot/##/vmlinuz  & /tftpboot/##/initrd.img which are symlinked to /usr/pluto/diskless/##/boot/vmlinuz and /usr/pluto/diskless/##/boot/initrd.img rather than the kernel in the /tftpboot/default directory.  So if the /usr/pluto/diskless/## folder exists copy your new kernels from /tftpboot/default to /usr/pluto/diskless/##/boot/ and try the boot again.

I'm grasping....

Users / Re: Dimming LED and CFL light bulbs?
« on: February 20, 2010, 11:35:45 pm »
Most commercially available led replacment bulbs and standard CFL bulbs are not dimmable.  Dimmable CFL bulbs are available, although at a premium of about 5x the cost of a standard CFL bulb.  There are likely dimmable LED replacements available as well but I havn't seem them on the shelf yet.  With the cost of dimmable CFL bulbs I use regular incandescent bulbs where I want dimming.

Excellent!  There are many people who could benefit from this.  Could you add the information to the ticket.

Installation issues / Re: upgrade error
« on: February 20, 2010, 02:40:17 pm »
Your welcome.  This issue will only affect a few who upgraded at a very specific time.  The issue has been fixed for new installs and anyone who upgrades from before the issue arose.

So I'd been unhappy with my queries performances following a re-install in January and it turns out the indexes built in this thread are not being applied to new installations.  I have added at least one more index now which has added another significant speed-up to some of my queries and I've made some adjustments to query_cache which have also significantly sped-up some of my queries and reduced the load on my core.  I'm hopefully going to wrap this all up on a dev system and submit a patch in about 1.5 weeks (when I have a week off). 

There has been some discussion in IRC about optimizations regarding the video query after doing tv episode tagging. 

Has anyone else figured out any other optimizations during their playing?  I'd love to incorporate anything/everything I can.
