Hey, I'm just telling you what I see. Also, it must hang in the X11 main loop, as the GNOME window-manager "greys out" the window once each of the various tests have been running for a few seconds.

This is somewhere inside the test application, not VDPAU, so I can't help with that.

However, given crisalide's previous comment, it sounds normal:
> Are you sure it hangs, or is it just waiting for you to close the window (or ctrl+C in console) ?

Where are you seeing this slow frame-rate; running the vdpinfo test application (note: your results certainly don't say this), or running a "real" video player application using VDPAU?

Yes. Each video runs about two seconds per frame for about 30? seconds.

The only app I've got that's VDPAU-aware is XBmc, but even though I've set VDPAU on, nothing in the status implies it's using it (and CPU usage is higher than even the default "Totem" player for the same video).

kcrudup:

If you are talking about qvdpautest video framerate, it's normal. Ech video sequence is made of 25 images, and these images are displayed in DECODING order (different than display order) at a very low speed (2 images/second) to give you a chance to check that the decoded images look correct. The real test starts after this presentation and doesn't display anything, it just decodes these 25 images in turn for 5 seconds and gives you the average decoding speed in images per seconds.

Given your test results, i can say that your card work as expected.

OK, I'm at wit's end here.

MythBuntu, Jaunty (Intrepid was hosed, too). Running the 180 nvidia drivers:
Code:
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad  CPU   Q8200  @ 2.33GHz
NVIDIA GPU GeForce 9800 GT (G92) at PCI:1:0:0 (GPU-0)

MIXER TEMPORAL_SPATIAL + SKIP_CHROMA (1920x1080): 358 fields/s
EDIT:

I installed the 185 drivers, and it doesn't even get this far. It locks up the X display during the MPEG test. The motherboard is an ASUS P5Q-EM with an Intel G45 chipset and 2GB of RAM. The onboard graphics are disabled, of course. Using the normal nvidia-glx gives quite good results.

Video card is an EVGA 9800 GT, 650MHz GPU, 512MB, 1900MHz effective memory speed. I really am at a total loss to these horrid numbers.

As a comparison, glxgears gives numbers like:

92873 frames in 5.0 seconds = 18564.407 FPS, which sounds plenty fast.

with my PCI 8400 G98 card I can't use temporal and spatial_temporal фдпщ with HDTV 1080i channels. I have jerky video and sound with their. Seems to me temporal algo should work well

your gpu clock is overcloked? (9800gt by default is 600MHz)
