Re: vdpau issues (Canon HF20)
Sorry if I was unclear earlier. By CPU getting crushed, I mean - viewing a video jumps one of my cores to nearly 100 percent, should not be happening. I added the following to ~/.mplayer/config
# Write your default config options here!
The audio setting to alsa seemed to help a lot. Still this seems archaic for having to view a video. Audio/video still seem to be out of sync and picture is not as clear as native PS3/Windows viewing. . .
Any ideas on if we can edit this without having to decode it to something less compressed. I did read about kdenlive and vdpau to support editing avchd, didn't know if there was any progress. . .
Thank you for the responses.
