GT220-poor vdpau 1080i deinterleacing performance after upgrade 304.32->304.37
 
Hello,

Nvidia GT220, Debian Sid x64, kernel 3.5.2, X.Org X Server 1.12.3.902 (1.12.4 RC 2).

I have problems with 1080i dvb-t video decoding using vdpau. After upgrading drivers form 304.32 (beta) to 304.37 (stable) it's impossible to play 1080i smoothly.

I use xbmc with vdpau enabled and:
- deinterleace: auto
- sharpen filter: 1 (maximum)

I've also tried some other deinterleace methods, but still video don't play smoothly on 1080i (576i plays fine). There are no problems while playing 1080p videos (no deinterleacing needed) - so I suspect some problems with deinterleacing. Also, resulting picture quality seems to be worse on 304.37. After downgrading to earlier 304.32 driver (Beta) 1080i plays ok again.

This is my xorg.conf:

Code:

    InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

Do you have any idea why latest stable driver works worse than previous beta in my case?

Possibly because card is stuck in low performance mode:

ie, don't use that driver, it's buggy. Beta vs stable, it seems to matter little I've noticed. They change way too much from the last beta to the stable release. (I call it "Mandriva syndrome".)

No problem here.
Run qvdpautest and compare with these results:

Hmm unabe to compile this with recent qt creator and qt 4.8.2. Is there any binaries available, maybe - .deb for ubuntu/debian? There are some changes in Qt - usleep is no longer available (QThread::usleep is protected), so code should be fixed.

I have sources downloaded from here: http://hftom.free.fr/qvdpautest-0.5.1.tar.gz
