    Default UVD on RV770 [Radeon HD 4850]

    I think I'm on a good way of solving that, but can't promise anything.

    Thanks it works for me on HD4670, full HD h264 video at 1-2% cpu ;p

    tip: make sure you dont use mplayer -vf in your config or it will error.
    The selected video_out device is incompatible with this codec.
    Try appending the scale filter to your filter list,
    e.g. -vf spp,scale instead of -vf spp.
    [h264_vdpau @ 0x7fef86ef8040]decode_slice_header error
    [h264_vdpau @ 0x7fef86ef8040]no frame!
    Error while decoding frame!
    mplayer:
    mplayer -noconfig all -vo vdpau -vc ffh264vdpau,ffodivxvdpau,ffmpeg12vdpau,ffwmv3vdpau ,ffvc1vdpau %f


    kernel:
    CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE RV710_uvd.bin R700_rlc.bin

    mesa:
    ./configure --with-dri-drivers= --disable-gallium-radeon --enable-gallium-r600 --enable-vdpau

    You're currently not using UVD. It's probably a kernel problem:

    a) The kernel is too old and does not contain UVD support (it was introduced in 3.9 IIRC)
    b) The firmware for UVD is missing ( http://people.freedesktop.org/~agd5f/radeon_ucode/ ). You need an updated SUMO_rlc.bin and SUMO_uvd.bin
    c) The radeon kernel driver is built as an module is loaded via initrd/initramfs --> the initrd is missing the firmware mentioned in b)

    For UVD support you need kernel 3.10.

    Yeah that is true for upstream kernels. Some distro's did back port it to 3.9 though. gentoo-sources for example has it starting at 3.9.2

    Basically you could even try UVD in live mode with Kanotix Dragonfire Linuxtag Special iso.

    Well I can confirm that we are still working on it, but can't say anything when or even if we are ever able to release it.

    Cheers,
    Christian.

    Is it in legal review or are you working on the code? Hope that I can see this getting released.
