Re: GeForce 8200, VDPAU: 1080p is a no-go
Well i have a 8200 on ASUS M3N78-VM and 1080p is just fine. I had a 3200+ Athlon @2GHz that scaled back to 1 GHz and 1080p was running perfectly well, no hiccups (~10% CPU).
Now i got a 250 dual core that runs on 800 MHz on light load and 1080p is the same if not a bit faster/snappier (this is subjective) at ~5% CPU .
I use Debian Squeeze. The thing is that Debian has the vdpau-enabled mplayer in its repos from the get-go, no ppas and compiling required.
