Default Re: VDPAU testing tool

Stephen,

I will do more testing tonight. In the meantime, I can recall that playback problems occured in both VLC and mplayer. VLC has NOT been compiled and optimized from sources for my specific config (distro, drivers, codecs, etc) so I am not expecting high performance from it. However, people at linuxquestions.org helped me to compile and fine tune mplayer for my specific ssytem, so thats why I am worried about this. It could also be a bad rip as starting mplayer from the command line I've seen this once:

Code:
...

Possible reasons, problems, workarounds:
- Most common: broken/buggy _audio_ driver
- Try -ao sdl or use the OSS emulation of ALSA.
- Experiment with different values for -autosync, 30 is a good start.
- Slow video output
- Try a different -vo driver (-vo help for a list) or try -framedrop!
- Slow CPU
- Don't try to play a big DVD/DivX on a slow CPU! Try some of the lavdopts,
e.g. -vfm ffmpeg -lavdopts lowres=1:fast:skiploopfilter=all.
- Broken file
- Try various combinations of -nobps -ni -forceidx -mc 0.
- Slow media (NFS/SMB mounts, DVD, VCD etc)
- Try -cache 8192.
- Are you using -cache to play a non-interleaved AVI file?
- Try -nocache.

If none of this helps you, read DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html.

Desktop compositing is activated. You suggest disabling it?
What about the driver control panel? Any options I should avoid to activate?

I will post back here with new info.
