Default Re: VDPAU testing tool

Please note that MEncoder is not an actively maintained application (you should try FFmpeg for most purposes) and cannot use VDPAU (and should therefore not be discussed here).
I understand. Good to know. I did not know that and I am looking to use ffmpeg for encoding/transcoding applications in the future...

So I have been playing a video (bluray) with mplayer and experienced no errors or problms at speed 0.5...

The only message I saw was when I forwarded the playback with the mouse scroll:

[h264_vdpau @ 0xe044e0]number of reference frames exceeds max (probably corrupt input), discarding one
Except that, nothing else. the command I used was:
mplayer -vo vdpau -vc ffh264vdpau -ao alsa -speed 0.5 $movie
