Playing .avi files with mythtv?
« on: September 03, 2009, 05:05:16 pm »
 I have installed 0810 alpha 2 but, when I play my stored video files some play okay and some are just bad. They have noticeable tearing and some look like they are cut and pasted on a diagonal and reinserted in the wrong order bottom on the top and vice versa. I have a asus M3N78 Pro with onboard Integrated NVIDIA GeForce 8 Series GPU(8300 chipset). Is there a way that I can fix this or should I somehow change it to use mythtv to play my .avi files.

I'm far from an expert, but I have a 8300GS too (not on-board). I found that if I have hardware acceleration set to openGL (media directors section of the admin site) some videos get garbled or have a wierd tint to them . Setting hardware accelerationto 'xv' seems to fix the playback of these videos. Then i up the deinterlace to medium, but not sure that does anything.
