Filters aren't currently supported. We're waiting to see how Carl's work getting our patches checked into MPlayer goes before we do any more significant work on MPlayer that could make that work more complex. Even after that point, we don't have any specific work scheduled for any specific timescale.

It definitely doesn't seem to be able to use the more sophisticated deinterlacers on 1080i content, but it can use the simpler ones. To my eyes the quality with those is pretty good, but I don't have the best eyesight.

With SD content, you can use any of the deinterlacers.

Have you tried a bluray (or HD-DVD) rip using the internal mythv player? Or do you use mythtv to launch mplayer?
It's definitely a great value, especially being fanless.

I have played a couple of 1080p bluray clips with both mplayer and mythtv. Mplayer had no trouble with them, but mythtv had some issues - jerky playback and failing to play the entire clip. Both were h.264 encoded, about 15.5 Mbps. I'm sure the mythtv devs will get it ironed out soon.

I guess you did it within mythfrontend.
Can you try exiting mythfrontend and use the standalone player mythtv instead ?

call it like:
$ mythtv /path/to/file-h264.mkv

and see how it behaves ...

Also, I'm pretty sure mplayer doesn't apply any deinterlacing .. so try turning off deinterlacing in mythfrontend before running mythtv standalone ..

I had a play today with a new computer with a not so new 8600GT card with 256MB card.

Well, it had no problem doing even Advanced 2X and Temporal 2X deinterlacing on a 1080i mpeg2 signal.

So really, the issue that keeps popping up about 256MB not being enough is obviously not correct...

My 9400GT card has been unable to perform any advanced deinterlacing on 1080i signal ... and it has 512MB

However, lacking BluRay player on Linux means you have to remove the DRM first.

I'm not sure if this has been covered before but are the brightness controls currently suppose to work in mplayer using vdpau output?
For quick reference they are:
Quote:
1 and 2 Adjust contrast.
3 and 4 Adjust brightness.
5 and 6 Adjust hue.
7 and 8 Adjust saturation.

No, those controls aren't currently supported by the MPlayer patches, alththough the VDPAU features are there to support them.

Good news are cpu is indeed taking the backseat and lets the gpu do the job
Bad news are : it's not working more than some seconds (15 to 40...) regardless of the source (tried half a dozen 720p and one hdlite (1440*1080) tvsource, all h264)
needless to say the same mplayer without vdpau codec (-vc ) runs the same files without problem.

when it crashes, I often see that error on terminal
Error 2 at libvo/vo_vdpau.c:1052: 0.000 0/ 0 2% 0% 0.3% 4 0

sometimes I can't even check terminal error msgs as the crash just...hangs the system and I have to reset the computer...

If someone has an idea ...
Any luck on this?

I'm getting this same exact error. The video plays for about 15 minutes, then quit with the above error.

I'm currently still using 180.22 drivers.

*EDIT* I tried your video and it play back fine for me.

Changing max_references to 16 does the trick for me.

So far the video that I can play using VDPAU is also the ones that can be decoded using VP (dxva) on windows. Strange enough, those video looks ugly when using dxva on windows, and looks fine when using mplayer on linux

Does this mean those videos will never be able to be played with VDPAU? But when I play it I can watch at least 2~4 seconds before mplayer crashed with this (meaning that it can be decoded using VDPAU right?)

mplayer: libmpcodecs/vd_ffmpeg.c:1198: vdpau_get_buffer: Assertion `0' failed.

Thanks.. it probably did the trick for me also, but I thoguht I compiled it, but didn't, then tried the +11 trick, really complied it, and it works now. I think i'll switch it back at 16 and test..


What exact is that for?
