You can encode the same clip on dvd quality (plays fine), typical hd quality (~40Mbps max, plays fine) or you can use the current encoding (<=100Mbps) which may fail even on dedicated hardware.
My Nvidia/VDPAU laptop can play every single full-hd movie fine but fails to decode this clip in real time. Does this mean that VDPAU sucks? No, it merely means that this clip is not representative of real-world hd content.
Well, if you gave me a camera and asked me to film something that would mess up a typical video encode / decode stack...
... it's hard to think of anything worse than birds for blowing out the motion comp
The problem with this statement is the simple fact that it is real-world hd content. I should know, I own the bluray. I still don't see how this is any different than Prime95 being a superb stress test for an overclocked pc (completely unintentionally).My Nvidia/VDPAU laptop can play every single full-hd movie fine but fails to decode this clip in real time.

Just played the clip on my other pc (which is slower than my main PC and not running Linux).
In the test PC I am using:
- Phenom II 2.8ghz Tri-Core
- ATI 5770
- 4GB dd3 ram
For the test I was using:
- Windows 7
- Catalyst 10.1
- MPlayer with the highest quality post processing (6)
It actually used less CPU than my own rip of the bluray (26% at most) This clip is using the High@4.1 Profile. I use a higher profile for my rips. For comparison trying out a totally unrelated 720p nature program (High@4.1 profile) video results in 20% CPU maximum in the couple of minutes I watched it.
The bitrate was posted earlier in the thread - 14.8mbps which is accurate. 14.4 of which is video. 14.8*122(duration)/8=225.7(the file size is actually 216MB). It is actually undersized even for 14.8mbps. This is not at all unrealistic for a bluray (which can go up to 40mbps).
I can provide a screenshot of this with a frame counter if you like.
in resume is a good reference not a must, for now. and that now could be quite far in time cuz i really cant see the difference between 1080p and 1080p 100mbit bitrate in my 1080p led 120hz tv, dunno maybe if thaters move 500" led screen maybe but for normal market 1080p is here to stay for many years.
