Default Re: Corrupted MPEG2 video playback with mplayer/VDPAU

Hi sandipt. Thanks for taking the time to review our issue.

Now I am . Newest mplayer refuses to play the video, apparently due to a colorspace incompatibility:

The selected video_out device is incompatible with this codec.
Try appending the scale filter to your filter list,
e.g. -vf spp,scale instead of -vf spp.
Is perhaps VDPAU unable to decode YUV422P MPEG-2 streams? does this depend on the GPU model?
