Default Re: GT430 + 260.19.21 + VDPAU = artifacts

I have this same problem with my ION board since updating my kernel and nvidia drivers.

I use vdr and the xineliboutput and streamdev streams play cleanly on my windows laptop. The host machine uses vdr-sxfe with VDPAU and the "sparkles" in dark areas are very noticeable. Only happens on SD MPEG2 channels (which I have set to temporal+spatial) and HD H264 (temporal only) appears clear. Definitely not a broadcast/tuner issue.

How do I go about screen capping VDPAU in ubuntu?

Edit: Just switched from temporal+spatial to temporal on SD MPEG2 and the problem is gone.

I can chime in and report that I also have the same problem with these white "sparkles". I'm using GT240, 260.19.26 drivers, xineliboutput, and MPEG2 SD material w/ temporal+spatial enabled.

The same problems are arising with my configuration (vdpau + xineliboutput). However I found a workaround that works. Perhaps it helps nearing the Problem.
The workaround is to set lightness and contrast in the video out settings in the menu:
settings-plugins-xineliboutput-video from vdr.

I must correct me, setting contrast and brightness didn't help really.
But an update to kernel 2.6.32-25-generic an a rebuild of all relevant kernel modules helped.

As much as I wanted to believe that, it does not seem to be the case. Running 260.19.29 and still the white artifacts can find their way to my screen. As if there wouldn't be enough snow already outdoors here in Finland...

Can anybody else confirm it has been fixed in 260.19.29?

My artifacts have returned despite switching to temporal only on 260.19.21

Some of you facing this issue on TV playing video and it looks like issue related to temporal and temporal-spatial de-interlacing . Can somebody use mplayer to test/repro the issue with video clip ftp://urpla.net/sample.mpeg ?

mplayer -vo vdpau:deint=3 <Video_file> # Temporal
mplayer -vo vdpau:deint=4 <Video_file> # Temporal Spatial

Sandipt,

The artifacts occur for me with both settings, it becomes noticeable towards the end of the clip.

However, the best example I have seen is when the BBC sometimes broadcast their Ceefax service in the early morning. Lots of near black = many artifacts. I must try and capture a clip.

Hope this helps.

Hello ogl,
Please provide details nvidia_bug_report, connection cables used, mplayer version, screenshot, video clip at the point artifacts occur.

I have also noticed the artifacts on progressive xvid content in XBMC. I think my nvidia ION does not even provide acceleration for this.

I will provide more information as soon as possible.

Edit: Upgrading to 260.19.29 has fixed the artifact problem for me, but now I have lost audio over hdmi (that could be down to me playing with pulseaudio though).

Edit 2: Artifacts ARE still present on some clips, but less noticeable.

Default Re: GT430 + 260.19.21 + VDPAU = artifacts

I have the same issues on my development box (AOpen Intel-Atom HD player DE7000) at work.

The issue: There are white pixels appearing on very dark areas while playing H264 content with mplayer(from SVN) with VDPAU or XV. Especially visible with the free HD trailer of "Season of the Witch" (my colleague downloaded it from Apple in 1080 as mp4).
It does not matter if I enable render acceleration in Xorg server or not, also the composit extension does not matter.
It sometimes appears after reboot, and sometimes it does not.
Sometimes it is worse with VDPAU sometimes with XV. No clue why.

I tried to capture a photo of it, but the pixel issue did not appear until now, will try to reboot a few times.

Ok, took a photo (with my mobile, very bad quality). And I found out something interesting:
The wrong pixels are just transparent. I was able to see the underlying video of a different mplayer session thru the pixels (were color changing all the time when something in the underlying movie was moving).

Here are the pictures:




BTW: I have tearing issues with VDPAU output, they do not appear always, but often. Will there be any fix soon?
At the moment I'm stuck with XV output which needs a bit more CPU cycles ...
