Ok, i could not test any other driver between 260.19.12 (13th oct) and 260.19.21 (5th nov). This issue seems to be fixed in a short test. If you like you can try it with 1 gb ram (you can restrict ram via option) and 128 mb vram. It still works, but vlc will most likely never work on atom for full hd vc1 (thats what i tested). Definitely too high system load. So i can use mplayer for content where i do not need subtitles and xbmc whre i need em. It's a bit sad because vlc has got even a parser for the bluray structure, you do not need to play the m2ts you can directly play the mountpoint of the bluray (you can do funny things with vbox and play original bluray with that when you export em...). when vlc is used in that way then the time shown is correct (xbmc has a got approximation, mplayer/vlc not). also you can select the audio/subs with the name not the id. Really bad that the best player for it is too slow with atom cpu.
Alright guys, so i bought gt 430.
vdpau is awesome. H.264 L4.1 works great on linux.
i just wondering, why the CPU usage still high ? Like about 50% and more.
i use mplayer with ffmpeg multithreading.
You dont use vdpau correctly. Put
in your .mplayer/config.Code:vc=ffh264vdpau,ffmpeg12vdpau,ffvc1vdpau,ffwmv3vdpau,ffodivxvdpau,
You're right. now it works.
But, if i play 1080p movie with 15mbps bitrate, the CPU usage still hit about 50%. Although i use ffmpeg-mt, the load seems doesn't spread among the threads.
I encounter this message too :
[h264_vdpau @ 0x8a4b8c0]Cannot parallelize deblocking type 1, decoding such frames in sequential order
There must be something wrong. Do you really use
normally that's default, but you can add it too. Btw. i would use the unpatched mplayer, works best with vdpau - especially more easy to play 3gp with audio without messing around with ffmpeg-mt options.
got this error also
[vdpau] Error when calling vdp_presentation_queue_block_until_surface_idle: A catch-all error, used when no other error code applies.
I am gonna try unpatched mplayer version now.
I tried unpatched version. Still, sometimes the CPU goes fluctuated over 10% according to the video load.
Seems like multithreading ffmpeg doesn't work with vdpau.
That's normal especially when you cpu is clocking down dynamically. But 50% load would be too much. As the gpu decodes you don't need multithreading anyway.
