AMD was release new catalyst 11.8

well, 24p with sync on is almost fixed with this git:
to checkout use:
Quote:git clone git://github.com/FernetMenta/xbmc.git
and then build it.
Thx to FernetMenta

Note that this is not a real fix since it does not correct the actual problem. I am still working on that.

I too compiled your tree today. I am quite happy with it. I am having another bug since month, but never could get a correct debug.log, because nothing was written to debug file after some time.
With your tree, this was changing, because of not using external libraries I think.
Where is the correct way to track bugs within your git tree?
Thx again for the great work

My vaapi branch is mainline with some preliminary patches addressing some problems with playback on Ati. Concerning the problem you are describing there shouldn't be any difference between mainline and my branch. Can you check again with mainline? What versions do you compare?
BTW: I will be on vacation for the next 2 weeks.

I normaly use the xbmc-unstable version, because they are building with --enable-vaapi now, because this got the default, at least with natty.
It is hard to get any good (for me) looking debug logfiles. xbmc just hangs after watching a little bit here and there, it is a freeze while scrolling through the main menu, happening since at least 3 month on development git.
I will file this bug separately, with mainline git.

I was pointed to this post in the hardware discussion subforum after asking what hoops I would have to jump through to get XBMC running with hardware acceleration on this E350 board I just picked up. Someone mentioned the precompiled solution specifically, which sounded perfect for someone with very limited Linux experience such as myself.
I see that those files are no longer available on the host there. What's the quickest/easiest way for a novice like me to get XBMC running on any flavor of Linux to its full potential? I presume that means VAAPI.

@Headcase_Fargon: Have you tried OpenELEC? I am using Fusion dev. builds and it works on my Fusion nettop flawless [Thanks to FernetMenta - by the way, enjoy your vacation!]

I've got XBMC running for most cases, but some HD movies are flickering like hell while others are played smoothly. I am using the Asus E35M1-I DELUXE with Ubuntu Natty. My display is a1920x1080@60Hz monitor and I tried ATI drivers 11.7 and 11.8.
My general settings are:
ATI Driver: Tearfree: activated
XBMC - Settings - Playback:
frequency adjustment off
allow errors: off
XBMC - Settings - System - Video-Hardware:
V-Sync: Like driver
Does anyone have a suggestion or two? :-)
Thanks and keep up the good work.
