Default VDPAU error "NNNN 60 5", "NNNN 58 5", and "NNNN 43 5"

This thread is for discussion of the following VDPAU error messages:

VDPAU nvidia: Error detected NNNN 60 5
VDPAU nvidia: Error detected NNNN 58 5
VDPAU nvidia: Error detected NNNN 43 5

Where NNNN is some number, and may vary between drivers versions.

We have reproduced "NNNN 43 5", but don't have any further information to announce yet.

We have not managed to reproduce "NNNN 58 5", but believe that it's the same basic issue as "NNNN 43 5". However, we would like to confirm this on actual silicon; if you are experiencing this issue, and are willing to ship us your HW (just the graphics board for desktop PCs), please contact me.

We have not managed to reproduce "NNNN 60 5", and have not yet determined any possible cause. Again, we would like to investigate this on actual silicon; if you are experiencing this issue, and are willing to ship us your HW (just the graphics board for desktop PCs), please contact me.

---------------------------------

I'm adding the following addendum to the message above to save users from having to search for these instructions in the middle of this long thread:

The problems covered by this thread manifest as the following error codes printed by the driver when "export VDPAU_NVIDIA_DEBUG=3" is set:

In drivers up to 185.18.14: VdpDecoderCreate will return VDP_STATUS_ERROR (25), and print error message "NNNN 43 5", or "NNNN 58 5", or "NNNN 60 5"

In drivers after 185.18.14: vdp_device_create_x11 will return VDP_STATUS_NO_IMPLEMENTATION (1), and print error message "0 NNNN".

In all cases, "NNNN" is a number that may vary based on driver version.

NOTE: Not all error codes of the form above indicate one of the specific problems covered by this thread.

To confirm you're seeing one of the exact issues covered by this thread, you will need to test *both* with driver version less than or equal to 185.18.14, and a driver version *after* 185.18.14. Please post the error messages produced by both driver versions, the exact driver versions tested, and an "nvidia bug report". An NVIDIA engineer will interpret those error messages to confirm whether you are affected by one of those problems.
