You should now be able to build MPlayer_Player and test vdpau.

I had to add the actual methods as well as the declarations.  I replicated Get_Name() and found the appropriate constants.  After that it built perfectly.  I copied the .deb to my ION and used dpkg to install it... mplayer is now using the webadmin settings and vdpau acceleration.  MPlayer cpu usage is ~20% showing 1080P h264 and doing on-the-fly re-encoding of multichannel AAC audio to AC3.

Could you send it to me, the .deb?

It says you're missing package dependencies, like mplayer itself.  I`m not sure why it's not installing automatically for you.  It explains why you are getting the mplayer errors you described in a earlier post.

I didn't have to do anything extra on my MD.  You could try installing the missing packages with apt-get and then dpkg -i the mplayer-player package again.

I'd be nice to know why mplayer is not installed on your fresh system though.

The "missing"  packages are installed:
Advanced | Software versions - CORE
mplayer = 2:1.0-svn30383-0ubuntu1
libmysqlclient15off = 5.0.67-0ubuntu6.1
libgcc1 = 1:4.3.2-1ubuntu12
libstdc++6 = 4.3.2-1ubuntu12
libc6 = 2.8~20080505-0ubuntu9
Advanced | Software versions - core/hybrid - No IP for media director selected.
I'm using the core/hybrid. It seems that i need to configure something.. but don' t know where.
If i only have one core/hybrid (did not setup any diskless MD), where shall i inform the IP for the MD?
May this be the problem?

What are you doing?
There is no reason you should need to install mplayer manually unless you have screwed with apt sources.
I have done lot´s of installations and mplayer together with mplayer_player have always installed automatically.

What i am doing? Trying to install the package Phenigma created.
I did not screwed anything with apt-sources.
I do have mplayer-player, but with no vdpau support.
I just told that the "missing" files reported by the try to install his package already were installed, and i did not installed them by hand.
Some others i did install, like kaffeine or smplayer and the upgrade of alsa, to 1.0.22.1-2, which apparently solved the HDMI sound output.

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?

Thx J. and niz23,
i was only reporting that the dependencies warned by the package built by J. already were installed.
Sometimes it confuses me having a disklless client in a server (the core/hybrid) and i'm trying to understand where the configs are picked by what, and what is to be done (reload router, regen orbiter, rebuit md).
Yes, i know that i need to wait until update finish to start upgrade or dist-upgrade.
niz23, thx for spendig time and so quickly providing an update.
J., thx for the support and the hint regarding the sound issue.
 
BTW, did it today, mlayer_player was updated, is using vdpau, but for a .m2ts file, there's still no sound.

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?

MPEG2 content should be vdpau accelerated through either xine or mplayer.  What container format (File extension) are the files?

The AAC re-encode configuration is not included with the vdpau update, you will still need some portions of the config file I posted for AAC audio over SPDIF.
