Ubuntu Multimedia :: Using VDPAU With MPlayer And VLC?

Jan 23, 2010

I am trying to take advantage of VDPAU for playing video files with my ASRock ION 330. As far as I know, MPlayer and VLC both include VDPAU support. Ok then, I managed to make MPlayer work from the command line:

mplayer -vo vdpau -vc ffh264vdpau ./filename.mkv

In this way it plays a 720p content smoothly, with under 10% CPU use. Great!The problem is when I try to make this permanent, i.e., configuring the files ~/.mplayer/config and ~/.mplayer/gui.conf.This is what I have in there:

config
======
vo=vdpau,xv,
vc=ffh264vdpau,ffmpeg12vdpau,

[code]....

But still, when I open MPlayer from the menu, no matter what file I try to open it gives this ugly message:Error opening/initializing the selected video_out (-vo) device. With regard to VLC, I had no luck, although I am using the latest "1.0.3 Goldeneye" version, I don't know how to make use of VDPAU.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Mplayer With Vdpau - Reset ?

Dec 12, 2010

I am using mplayer with vdpau enabled in Ubuntu 10.10. It works very well in general, reducing cpu usage for hd from 50% to 60% to around 10 -15% or less. There is however one slightly annoying problem. It is that mplayer would appear to "forget" its vdpau output setting once in a while and especially after rebooting. When that happens it needs to be "reset" in order to use vdpau. "Resetting" basically just means opening gnome-mplayer and change video output to xv and then back to vdpau again.

I should clarify that the setting has not actually been lost, it still says "vdpau", it just need resetting).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Does Karmic Mplayer Have VDPAU Support Out Of The Box?

Mar 3, 2010

1) Does Karmic mplayer have VDPAU support out of the box? If not, why doesn't it?

2) Does LUCID mplayer have VDPAU support "..."?

3) If Lucid doesn't, can I use the Karmic VDPAU PPA for Lucid, or much I compile mplayer myself?

4) Point me to a place with instructions on compiling mplayer with VDPAU support. If you don't know, I'll just google it.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Mplayer Fails To Use VDPAU Device?

May 23, 2010

I have a Zotac IONITX-F-E motherboard (Intel Atom Dual Core 1.6 GHz + Nvidia ION) -based box with Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit installed. My goal is to play back 1080p video.

I have mplayer installed (which I compiled from source with --enable-vdpau). I try to run mplayer with this command:

Code:
mplayer -vo vdpau -vc ffh264vdpau path/to/myfile.mkv
I get the following message in my terminal:
Code:
Error opening/initializing the selected video_out (-vo) device.
I have libvdpau-dev and libvdpau1 installed.

[Code]....

Before doing all this, I was able to get the nvidia 195.36.24 driver installed, but I am still having some trouble, which may or may not be related.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Smooth 1080p On VDPAU Mplayer On Hardy 8.04.4?

Dec 5, 2010

I had a problem playing full HD videos (1080p @ 30 fps), frames dropped, CPU utilisation (on 1 of 2 CPUs) maxed out etc.As I'm still stuck on Hardy I didn't find much stuff that directly answers my question on how to play this... After hunting about a bit the following two links gave me some idea of what needs to be done, namely install a new version of Mplayer that supports VDPAU (NVidia's hardware video acceleration solution).

[URL]

Luckily I had a NVidia video card that supports VDPAU and I had installed the NVidia proprietary drivers before [URL]To check if your NVidia card supports VDPAU please look at the proprietary driver release details.

Quote from Wikipedia:

"Currently only second generation of PureVideo HD bit-stream processor in some of NVIDIA's GeForce 8 series and later graphics cards hardware that has support since the Beta device driver version 180.06.[4] Unsupported hardware from the GeForce 8 series includes the 8800GTS 320/640MB editions and the 8800GTX. Later cards based on the G9x series cores e.g. the 8400GS and the 8800GTS 512mb (G92 core) are supported."

I usually play using VLC but was put-off from trying to upgrade that to CDPAU support because of this little detail from the Ubuntu forum links above:

Quote:

"VLC is available with vdpau by way of VA-API, in this PPA:[URL]However, to install it you'll have to upgrade your precious and very touchy ffmpeg packages. There have been a couple of SONAME upgrades since Karmic's ffmpeg was released, and this will inevitably result in breakage of anything that A) uses dynamic ffmpeg, and B) is not rebuilt against the new version, ie. every package that's on your system that didn't come from that PPA."

Debian Multimedia :: Unable To Use VDPAU With SMPlayer And MPLayer?

Mar 6, 2011

I recently updated my Squeeze installation to testing and since then I've been unable to use VDPAU with SMPlayer and MPLayer. When VDPAU is enabled every video file gives the same error (see log at the end; don't mind the extra channel entries, they're for converting AAC to AC3 on-the-fly). Before this everything worked as it should.

Ubuntu :: H264 And VC-1 With VDPAU In MPlayer But Not What Everyone Else Asks

Jan 9, 2011

I can successfully play h264 and vc1 encoded HD videos with vdpau acceleration using Gnome MPlayer or SMplayer, but in order to accomplish this, I have to provide -vc ffh264vdpau/ffvc1vdpau as an extra argument for MPlayer. Now this totally sucks as I have to manually type this in for HD videos and remove for all others every single time... What's worse is that I have to know what the video is in advance so I first need to analyze it before playing.So, I figured that if there's a way to tell MPlayer to aways use ffh264vdpau codec for h264 and ffvc1vdpau for vc1 videos, I'd be free to just click and watch.

Fedora :: MPlayer And XBMC Built With NVIDIA VDPAU?

Aug 28, 2009

If you want to use XBMC 9.11 (Camelot) and MPlayer, I suggest to use RPM Fusion. VDPAU support is now mainline...My repository provides pre-beta XBMC Dharma packages (xbmc-dharma) and recent mplayer packages with bluray support (through libbluray and libaacs). These packages depend on RPM Fusion.

xbmc-dharma is also compiled with vdpau and vaapi support. vaapi is supposed to be compatible with Nvidia (through vdpau, install vdpau-video), ATI (through xvba, install xvba-video) and Intel (directly). For me (NVidia), it doesn't work, xbmc instantly crash. Anyway, you can try. Maybe it's useful for someone. You can maybe find informations here: [URL] For NVidia and ATI, it can only work with the closed source driver. For Intel. libva, vdpau-video source packages were copied from [URL](I forgot) and recompiled by me.

One last thing, RTMP [URL] support was removed from XBMC after 9.11. If you want to watch videos over this protocol (usually flash), you have to install librtmp (provided in my repo). Repository URL:[URL] If you want to install it in yum, copy [URL]

I killed windows and jumped to Ubuntu after thinking about it. I know windows systems very well and been on the PC starting in the DOS age.

First off. I think I have everything going. I had issues with the display and sound. I got the sound working thanks to these forums...but I have "tossed" some code in the command window that I have no clue what it does or if it worked.

I would like to know if my nVIDIA cards are working correctly. My goal is to use WINE or Play On Linux and get World of Warcraft up and going... along with MS OFFICE 2010.

Im still learning the system and where what is so please go slow. What Do I need to do to get system information for help? ANd to check to make sure drivers are loaded and working?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: NVIDA Drivers Not Installing In Lucid Or Meerkat?

Jun 10, 2011

There are several things going on here. * Mouse jumps to the side when I click on things when zoom is activated. * After an upgrade in Lucid,I'd start up the computer and everything would be very slow. Windows would open from the bottom and I could not click on anything cause when I tried,the mouse would jump to the side. Zoom slow and clunky. Mouse fireball always turned off. I'd uninstall and reinstall Compiz and that would fix it for about three days and then it's back to the same problems. I end up having to click no effects then click effects (middle button) and it looks for drivers,then I have to reactivate the mouse fireball. This happened every day,day in day out. So I installed Meerkat Sat. and it was fine till this morning,now the same problem has reasserted itself.What can I do? Do I need a new video card?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.04 - Vdpau Not Working After Restart Gdm

May 27, 2010

I upgraded from Ubuntu 9.10 to 10.04. After the upgrade, mplayer no longer play a DVD.

I put the missing codecs, as described here: [url] Now DVD worked.

Also during the upgrade package libvdpau1 was disappeared, I restored it from the default repository. Then vdpau worked, but only after a reboot. After restarting gdm (select "Log Out" or sudo service gdm stop/start, or Ctrl + Alt + Backspace) an error:

After reboot everything works again.I updated libvdpau1 from repository [url], but it did not help, same error.

Video: nvidia 9600M GT
Notebook [url]
Driver set the default, 195.36.15-0ubuntu3, from the standard repositories.
In Karmic was 185, everything worked.

I noticed this feature, I do not know whether it is connected with subj:

Immediately after loading the gdm starts with the seventh console, ie when you exit the virtual console by Ctrl + Alt + F2 again to hit Ctrl + Alt + F7.

After you restart gdm is in the eighth console, Ctrl + Alt + F8.

If I run a guest session, it starts with the ninth console.

In the karmic like always with the seventh started.

When booting too strange things happen.

Ubuntu Karmic I installed with Alternate CD to an encrypted LVM.

I booting in text mode, ie without "quiet splash".

Booting reached requiring a password, when entering the password does not display an asterisk, after entering the password then continue normally.

After upgrading to Lucid booting lines are shown as a twisted, ladder when entering the password it displays asterisks and when I enter each character again displays prompt.

I did not like, and I again put the "quiet splash".

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Smplayer With Vdpau Has Hiccups

Sep 29, 2010

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 and have it hooked up to my HDTV. My GPU is an 8600 GT and I am using the current nvidia driver. Mother board is GIGABYTE GA-MA78GM-S2H, CPU is AMD 4850e, using 2x1G ram 800MHz. Everything I have installed on it comes straight through Synaptic. Smplayer seems to work fine with the VDPAU selected (cpu usage is nice and low during HD playback), but there is a slight problem that really annoys. Every 2-3 seconds the picture seems to have the hiccups, its as though it gets stuck on one frame for a split second and then jumps to the next.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Enable Vdpau Support In Machine

Is there anyone in this forum with Ubuntu 9.10 64 bit with the same other system requirements as mine who have successfully managed to make the VDPAU work?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Enable VDPAU For NVidia 8400GS

Oct 8, 2010

I installed libvdpau and then I installed the nvidia vdpau software. I was following some steps from another post. When I run XBMC and hit 'O' I can see that the gcpu is still not doing any work (0 - 6%), the two computer cpus are doing all the work. They run at 30%'ish on 720p content and that renders smooth. No prob there. However, the cpus jump up to 50%+ (both cpus) on 1080p content and they can't keep the frame rate steady. It jumps around significantly so of course the movie stutters. No, the network is not the issue. Its completely wired gigabit end to end. Plus I'm running the video from the local hard drive and it doesn't change.

So... the solution is to get VDPAU working and so far I haven't found the right instructions.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Figure Out Why TOTEM And VLC Couldn't Do VDPAU?

Apr 22, 2011

Choppy RMVB etc. video on totem made me go _insane_So i realized mplayer with VDPAU output was rocking and rolling!But Ubuntu uses TOTEM. So I tried to figure out why TOTEM and VLC couldn't do VDPAU.Lots of users tried with no success, months ago, as I was looking at some threads.Just passing by to inform that I was able to make NVidia's VDPAU technology work with GStreamer by compiling the latest gst-VAAPI lib (~gbeauchesne), like that:

Example RMVB file output $ gst-launch-0.10 -vv filesrc location="~/putz.rmvb" ! ffdemux_rm ! ffdec_rv40 ! x264enc ! vaapidecode ! vaapisink

and no more freezes or choppy video! Graphics card is NVidia 8500 GT, NVIDIA Driver Version: 260.19.06 with Intel Core i7 + 4GB RAM now I'm getting the 0.11 gst GIT and will see if it makes any difference.[URL]...

Ubuntu Multimedia :: VDPAU Performance On SMplayer & Compiz?

Using either MPlayer or mplayer2 under the video player SMplayer, when clicking on any drop-down menus, the video will freeze and then skip. Once the drop-down menu animation has completed, the video playback will play normally. This happens when using VDPAU to play back H.264 MKV files. Audio playback of the video is never interrupted. why VDPAU will not play nice with SMplayer & Compiz?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Tearing And Choppy Video W/ ION 330 Vdpau In Xinerama

Aug 24, 2010

I have a ASRock ION 330 with 512 Mbyte shared graphics memory. I use the 256.44 closed source nvidia drivers and have a Xinerama display consisting of one Asus 1440x900 monitor and one video projector with displaysize of 1280x720. Display: 1440x900 + 1280x720 in Xinerama

I have tried with and without desktop effects enabled, and I have followed the http://tombuntu.com/index.php/2009/0...thout-tearing/ guide to manually set the refresh rate to 60 Hz. The sync to Vblank option is checked, both in CCSM and nvidia-settings under X Server Xvideo Settings and under OpenGL Settings, to no avail.

The files I play are MPEG-2 Transport Stream in 720p. Some are and some are not in Matroska containers. I use SMplayer with vdpau enabled. I've made a comparison of Windows Vista and Ubuntu 10.04 below:[URL].. It's not entirely clear from the video, but the end scroller is choppy on Ubuntu and relatively smooth in Windows Vista.

This setup is to be run in a public cinema, and the chopping and tearing is a complete showstopper. It would be a nice showcase to have Ubuntu in the wild like this, but it can't be used if these issues are not resolved.

Debian Multimedia :: XOrg Auto-detect Failing To Detect Max Screen Resolution

May 29, 2011

I've installed Squeeze 2.6.32-5-amd64 on my laptop (Alienware M17X R3, Intel i7 Sandybridge, ATI Technologies Inc Broadway [ATI Mobility Radeon HD 6800 Series])The screen is 17", with maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080. After a default install of the operating system, the maximum resolution I can select is 1280 x 1024.My research so far has suggested that I need to edit the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and provide xorg with the necessary resolution.

Again, by default, the xorg.conf file is not created. This leads me to believe that xorg is scanning my hardware at startup and providing me with whatever it thinks is appropriate. I tried following these instructions to generate an xorg.conf file. This process created an xorg.conf file under /root/.

When I copy this xorg.conf file to /etc/X11, I get a blank (i.e. black) screen. Deleting this file restores the default resolution 1280 x 1024.This system is dual booting with Windows 7. Under windows I am able to get a 1920 x 1080 resolution, so I know my hardware is up to it.At this stage I have yet to install the drivers for the Radeon graphics card.What are my options regarding configuring xorg to give me a higher screen resolution?
