    Default 8.42.3 TexturedVideo

    Hi.
    Is TexturedVideo working for anybody? I discovered this feature just week ago. I didn't need it really before, but to be able to use the new feature in skype(webcam support) I need multiple xv ports. When I enable the texturedvideo option in xorg.conf the videos are ok in original size, but when I resize the video or switch to fullscreen the video is blocky(also the subtitles) and there's also some tearing visible.

    I'm using Mobility R9700 with fglrx drivers(8.42.3).
    Here's my xorg.conf
    Code:
    Section "Files"
    EndSection
    
    Section "InputDevice"
    	Identifier	"Generic Keyboard"

    Any help would be really appreciated THX

    I can't get it working with fglrx So my question is - Can I get multiple xv ports with the opensource driver?

    Hi,

    I get 4 XV ports when enabling TexturedVideo, but all movie players show a screwed picture.

    Do I have to change the config for e.g. mplayer so that it works with TexturedVideo?

    Thanks for your help,
    Whoopie

    By "screwed" do you mean distorted or "blocky and tearing" ?

    I meant distorted so that I can't even imagine what I would see there.

    I get blocky fullscreen as well, both in VLC and MPlayer. Mobility Radeon X1400.

    Blocky and tearing for me.... it was always blocky and tearing, more than a year now.

    I've found that using OpenGL output in VLC (with fglrx 8.42.3 or 7.11) results in smooth scaling, while Xv output has blocky edges. I use the OpenGL output full-time now because of that, despite the odd horizontal and 45deg diagonal tearing artifacts in fast motion, high contrast scenes.
