Re: What card for 1080P60 with XvMC
I'm getting a little bit closer...
The nvidia card shares its interrupt with the diskdrive the HD movie is being read from:
169: 24620878 IO-APIC-level ide2, ide3, uhci_hcd, nvidia
(my movie disks are on a 2-channel IDE controller in a PCI slot)
This seems to be a problem. When I let it play for maybe 20 seconds then interrupt and restart, the movie is still in the cache and plays OK. When it gets at the point where it stopped reading the previous time, it gets stuck again.
But apparently it is no problem when using xv or gl output. Only with xvmc. And only with HD. (SD from the same disk is no problem)
