Default Re: GeForce GTX 260M and mplayer+vdpau causes "xv" video output to corrupt

Using the latest 195.36.08 video driver i performed the requested debuging:

a) Restart X, run nvidia-settings, look at the PowerMizer page, and post all the information there (or just a screenshot)
here is what it looks like after a clean X restart:

b) Run an application that uses Xv, without any issues, and while it's running look at the nvidia-settings PowerMizer page. Which performance level is active?
i ran mplayer with xv output and here is a screeny of PowerMizer:

c) Now run a VDPAU application. Which performance level is active.
mplayer with vdpau:

d) Now run an Xv application, which I guess will stutter. Which performance level is active.
Here is mplayer wiht xv output after running it with vdpau (stuttering video/Bad Frames):

Finally, you'd mentioned that Xv becomes choppy, but later mentioned corrupted Xv output. I assume that was just a "slip of the tongue", and that you're only experiencing slow (choppy) playback, and not corruption (i.e. when frames are displayed, they look OK, there's just not enough of them).
Yup. It was a slip of the tongue.

On another note, I tested this on a 32bit machine and had the same problem... dont know if that helps at all.

Thanks for the reply!
