So for all Debian/Ubuntu users i updated my scripts to autoinstall the needed files. As it requires fglrx 9-10 final driver best solution is:
rm -f /etc/X11/xorg.conf*
then run first my script to install fglrx:
then run my script for mplayer vaapi - which works on nvidia to - ideal for comparison! in theory psb too, but could not test.
Have fun with h264 L5.1 material. Best install mediainfo too:
to avoid those, you will figure out why ;)
Sorry to be an a**hole again, but:Quote:
At the end of the day it's nice that UVD2 is finally usable on Linux (assuming no driver bugs), considering that the original ATI Unified Video Decoder was never supported, but it's still not as nice of an implementation as NVIDIA's VDPAU that is well supported and can handle a variety of different formats and can be used in a variety of different multimedia programs.
Is it possible that AMD is doing something better than a competitor (in this case Nvida) one day again? I remember days when AMD played with Intel (times of Athlon64). I would really like to have those days back!
Did you ever look there:
There are UVD 2.2 chips mentioned with parallel decode of 2 streams. Do you think that will ever work on Linux?
Yes, I actually updated the technical details on that page a couple of times, although my updates were reverted because they didn't match gossip on other forums. Yay.
As always, can't comment on unreleased features.
(And I had a 7900 GS grr)
So AMD/ATI aren't that different here, except that it took them a lot longer to make it happen.
Maybe the opensource drivers will make it happen for older cards one day.
The Hd Vid decoding support on GF7xxx Cards under Win is kinda limited, but annyway Nvidia supports more Generations of Cards with VDPAU
