Default MPlayer, vdpau, xvid

Hello,

Just wondering is there plans to integrate nvidia's vdpau xvid decoding into the main MPlayer tree?
Haven't seen mention of it on MPlayer lists, and see no new releases have been put up at ftp://download.nvidia.com:/XFree86/vdpau since Oct.

Code:
$ mplayer -vc help | grep vdpau
ffmpeg12vdpau ffmpeg    working   FFmpeg MPEG-1/2 (VDPAU)  [mpegvideo_vdpau]
ffwmv3vdpau ffmpeg    problems  FFmpeg WMV3/WMV9 (VDPAU)  [wmv3_vdpau]
ffvc1vdpau  ffmpeg    problems  FFmpeg WVC1 (VDPAU)  [vc1_vdpau]
ffh264vdpau ffmpeg    working   FFmpeg H.264 (VDPAU)  [h264_vdpau]
ffodivxvdpau ffmpeg    working   FFmpeg MPEG-4,DIVX-4/5 (VDPAU)  [mpeg4_vdpau]
It is there. Though, i tested it with one xvid file and picture was flickering/unwatchable.

hello,

yes - i must confirm this. xvid movies are sometimes flickering with "ffodivxvdpau" as videocodec in mplayer.

nvidia-driver: 195.36.03
GPU "GT220"
mplayer: checked out 2010-02-17

B-frame support in MPlayer svn is not (yet) finished. You can either use the code from Nvidia, or from the original patch I sent to ffmpeg-devel if you need MPEG-4 decoding.

thanks for this information - i will wait for the implementation beeing finished. for the divx/mpeg4 samples i watch "ffodivx" as codec is more than adequate.

Attached is a workaround that should allow playback with -vc ffodivxvdpau for both B-frames and packed B-frames.

Latest MPlayer svn should now support both B-frames and packed B-frames when decoding with VDPAU.
