Does the driver accelerate all h.264 material or has the material to encoding in a specific way?
subtitles and dvd menu's - dafart - 2009-02-19 20:48
Currently using svn revision 17802 and vdpau is working great! Amazing to see the cpu usage at 10% while decoding x264 material 1080p 24
external .srt subtitles along with .srt embedded in .mkv files seems to be working fine, also xvid encoded .avi files and .iso dvd images appear to be working just fine.
There are some issues I would like to report though:
.ssa subtitles won't display and also it appears not to be possibe to navigate in dvd menu's in this version.
Anyone experiencing the same issues?
Nonetheless this vdpau support is an amazing achievement, thanks a great lot for all the effort put in this project!

DVD menus were crashing XBMC-vdpau, so as a temporary measure i disabled the overlay (which broke subtitles too)

There are specific encodings expected supposedly but it's been found that most conform. I fully expected that my self encoded stuff wasn't going to work but awhile back someone looked at my settings and to my surprise I was told it would likely work - and HAS. It would seem that only the oddest of encodings isn't going to be supported. Try it and see, you may be surprise. If it wasn't for the DVD overlay being disabled I'd be loading it on the primary machine. I have both the main and this branch compiled - make install in whatever directory lets me swap back and forth

Thanks for the info BLKMGK!

first thanks a LOT for all the dedicated time and the great features you added to XBMC.
Having a fast CPU, hardware acceleration wasn't on top of my wishlist, however I really really really (you can tell how excited I am, can't you ) wanted to see extra filters in the dvdplayer to smoothen and denoise the picture and I just saw your bug
and noticed that you indeed implemented this feature.
My questions for you and anybody who used these filters
1) how is the picture quality on a large screen tv? I love XBMC but my only concern was the picture quality and I have a 2 page thread http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=45425
explaining what I was experiencing with 1080p mkv playback and I highly believe that these filters will take care of these dancing pixels in the background, am I wrong?
2) I have live version installed on my machine, which is hardy OS version, I just want to double check that if I check out the vdapu branch I can just compile and run it on LIVE, right?
3) these filters are flawless? and I can tweak them from the GUI?

I've gotta say, you've done one heck of a great job on this. This really does change things for xbmc (in a great way)

I might end up wiping my vista install and switching to Ubuntu just for this.

Anyone got a moment to help me figure out my choppy playback issues with XBMC (and mplayer standalone)? First, my card's capabilities:
OS: Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid 2.6.27-7-generic
ECS GF8200A Black v1.0 (chipset gets very hot, will swap with artic silver 5 and a light fan). 4GB RAM, 512 dedicated as shared with iGPU in BIOS. AMD Athlon X2 4850e 2.5ghz.
Nvidia drivers 180.29 reported by nvidia-settings loaded.
When I try to play back using Mplayer (MPlayer dev-SVN-r28348-4.3.2 using nvidia's check-build-patch), the playback of all type sof files is very slow (mpeg2 is fastest, but still kinda skippy/jerky). When I kill mplayer I see this output:
I don't get any audio through my line out jacks, I haven't tried the hdmi. The video plays the same in XBMC. My iGPU is supported and my memory and CPU requirements are above adequate. I'm using the latest drivers and mplayer builds...anyone have any ideas? Thank you.
