Re: GT430 + 260.19.21 + VDPAU = artifacts
FWIW, I am also seeing the same issues since I upgraded to 260.xx drivers. I've been able to tune ..somewhat... using VDPAUbuffersize, but I can't make it go away.
I'm seeing two issues:
1. MPEG2 playback + blacks, exactly like others in this thread have listed.
2. H.264 playback and "juddering"
If I remove the VDPAUbuffersize statement, it's ROTTEN on both fronts.. Right now I'm sitting at a buffersize=12, which is the best I've been able to manage so far, but far from perfect.
