Re: VDPAU problem after upgrade to 260.19.04
I have the same problem but only with 260.xx drivers. 256.xx work fine.
Any file played by smplayer+mplayer exhibits this behavior.
mplayer becomes a zombie process and it may crash, or it may not crash. However, it is unresponsive.
The behavior is somewhat random/erratic, it is not easy to observe patterns or reproduce the issue.
However, for some peculiar reason it seems that if the crash does not occur on the 1st or 2nd clip that is played, after logging-in the DE, everything afterwards never crashes.
Card is an 1GB 9800GT.
Distro is Archlinux amd64.
