VDPAU Xine Deinterlacing
« on: July 04, 2010, 12:24:31 pm »
When playing DVDs linuxmce uses xine. I have nvidia ion mds which can utilise VDPAU hardware acceleration.

Is it possible to enable deinterlacing in xine rather than in the web admin >> media director page? Am I right in thinking xine could use hardware acceleration to deinterlace rather than cpu cycles?

Regards

as far as I know the setting in the web admin should turn it on in xine ...

What makes you think this is not the case ?

You can maybe see something in /var/log/pluto/Spawn_xine*

Viking,

I am experimentally running a dual core acer revo (ion graphics) as a stand alone core/hybrid. Graphics are running at 1080p.

With deinterlacing turned off the DVD graphics are smooth. If deinterlacing is turned on in web admin, even at the lowest setting, the picture becomes jerky. Because of this I am assuming some sort of cpu overhead as the hardware acceleration means the cpu shouldn't be taxed too much.

I will check the log files as you suggest.

b4rney,

The deinterlacing setting you see in webadmin do not take advantage of vdpau.
Because of that the cpu get overloaded and picture quality suffers.

Thanks niz23,

Do you know if it can be enabled in the xine config or elsewhere?

Does this mean that setting Hardware Acceleration "vdpau" and "Deinterlace Quality" to anything else than "None" means that CPU is used instead of VDPAU ?

sorry, the log is XX_Xine_Player.log where XX is a number. On my system it is 49.

On my system it says something like this :

 Read media A/V information: []/[MPEG1/2 (vdpau), 720x576] => []/[5:4]
