Hardware acelaration with HD videos
« on: January 06, 2011, 04:40:10 pm »
Hi everyone,

I can not keep accelerating for Xine_Player and mplayer. If I turn on VDPAU on MD, xine play .mkv fine but mplayer displays black screen on files .m2ts, but with audio.

I have tried many configurations of MD + /root/.mplayer/config + /etc/mplayer/mplayer.conf, but apparently nothing works for mplayer and .m2ts files

Xine_Player play these files? If yes, how to change association these files to it?

Thanks

I believe that the issue is the present version of mplayer shipping with LMCE, is not compiled with vdpau support - reason sound no video; have plans to recompile mine after exams in two (2) weeks; have some home made videos that my wife took with her friends HD camera and I stupidly made a blueray out of it, but xine refuses to play it (I did not put any encryption on the disk), I believe mplayer does.

You can try the following, it worked sometime back, when I initially tried 8.10, subsequent crash and rebuild a few times, really have not gotten around to trying again.

Thanks for trying friend, but does not work.

This system definitely has its own life! I have not informed the command of XV acceleration, but it looks there:
# ps aux | grep mplayer
# mplayer -slave -idle -msglevel all=4 -noborder -fixed-vo -fs -vo vdpau,xv ...

I compiled version, but the problem is the same: black screen with audio.

There are many bugs, faults, deficiencies. I'm almost giving up LinuxMCE  :-\

Regards,

Please do, as we need people that are actually helping out, instead of bitching and moaning about the  B E T A  version.  :P

If you compile and am not seeing any difference, got to the KDE desktop, bring up a terminal and try to play mplayer using the following:

mplayer -vo vdpau -vc ffh264vdpau <file> or

mplayer -vo vdpau -vc ffmpeg12vdpau,ffh264vdpau,ffwmv3vdpau,ffvc1vdpau <file>

While compiling did it replace the original mplayer binary?

If no, then you would have to replace the mplayer binary with the new one.

Before replacing the original, backup up the old one, I now have started doing an offline backup of my system before doing anything, even if I am sure.

Sorry for my lame question, but isn't Xine used for video playback? I haven't gotten to multimedia part in my LinuxMCE exploration yet but from what I have been reading so far I got the impression that Xine is used and not mplayer.

Is there a way to pick which video player is going to be used for video playback for each MD separately?

Thank you in advance.
