For testing purposes, what is the latest (or recommended) revision of xbmc-vdpau version that was not merged to main branch?
I had it all up and running with two separate versions and now I have everything mixed up and vdpau not working properly Smile I need to do some clean up and testing before I will post any logs and problems

thx

Haggy,

Thank you. I tried it and got this error though:

Code:
svn: 'https://xbmc.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/xbmc/branches/xbmc-vdpau/XBMC'
is not the same repository as
'http://xbmc.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/xbmc'

Any advice?


- Haggy - 2009-03-23 17:25

sure - just add the s to https ;-) i pull via plain old http because i don't get the point in stressing the webservers for encrypting 1gb of sourcecode.

...and you have to do the switch in your XBMC dir (note the case)

You could try 18670.

motd2k - would you like us 8200 users to stay on VDPAU branch to help with testing?

Its up to you. For the moment (considering the feature-freeze and therefore the bug-quashing that we request you help with) it'd be better to stay on linuxport for now.

I can provide patches to linuxport for things like the 8200 fixes, but to be honest since I personally have the issue, and it's 100% reliable and predictable, its easy enough to see when something works or doesn't!

Checked out SVN this morning of the Merge. r18849 I believe.

Still Crashing on certain VC1 files (I am on 185.13) and some have to be stopped and resttarted to play properly, I am not sure if this is what you just fixed motd2k upto r18851 (linuxport)

Still hangs at the end of Regular DVD playback and will not return to the library view.

Apparently all mu issues were caused by newest nvidia driver 180.41.
Switching back to 185.13 fixed all the issues.

I am running svn 18850 with full vdpau support. When I switched to 180.41 drivers and new merged svn yesterday I started to get 100%CPU loads and lots of dropped frames.

Wow! Just routinely was building the most recent fresh 'from the scratch' SVN's linuxport and what do I see: configure shows VDPAU enabled! So, it finally got merged!!!! Great! Thanks, motd2k!

Just wanted to add my thanks here, motd2k. I've been watching this thread intently as it greatly affects what is going into my next build. VDPAU support is an awesome addition to XBMC, and it's a pleasure seeing people like yourself share their time and skills with open source development projects like this. Great work.

@motd2k

Am I experiencing correctly, that the database change you made, was not merged back to Linuxport, therefore the database created under the vdpau branch won't work on Linuxport and we have to recreate everything under Linuxport?


- Haggy - 2009-03-24 10:20

At least that was my experience last night when i switched from -vdpau to linuxport. Glad i didn't have that much in the lib.


- mythmaster - 2009-03-24 10:35

Same here, but I don't keep anything permanent in my sandbox, anyway. Wink

Someone on IRC suggested to export the lib to a file, then upgrade or switch branches and then re-import the lib from file.
