dk75,

No, probably not. Many people have reported issues with just 256M even without compiz. At least for HD, decoding does require a significant amount of memory. compiz can also require a significant amount of memory...

If you can't get a Geforce 9300 GS (and I doubt you can), the only possibility to decode VC1 is Geforce 8400 GS (G98) which is a PCI-E 2.0 card with around 576MHz (Note that I haven't seen a Geforce 8400 GS (G86) with PCI-E 2.0), for example ASUS EN8400GS Silent/HTP/512M.

Note that all Geforce 8400 GS PCI (not PCI-E) seem to be G98-based.

I have seen 8400gs cards with g86 chip. typicaly they have 256meg instead of 512 and say nothing about PCIe 2.0. From what I have read, the g86 can't do 2.0 while the g98 can. So if it can do PCIe 2.0 and if it has a clock higher then 450, it should be g98. But it also need 512meg .

9300 GS seems to be readily available. Would it be assumed this one would work with VC-1?: http://www.amazon.com/Nvidia-Geforce.../dp/B001JBIGCI or this one if you don't want to pay that much: http://cgi.ebay.com/Nvidia-Geforce-9...QQcmdZViewItem

Unfortunately I can't find one that is fanless or that doesn't have the cheapass ribbon cable on the DB-15.

(My Asus 8400 GS was DOA so I'm pretty down on that card)

When I playback 1080p video with -fs -ao none -vo vdpau -vc ffh264vdpau, playback ain't so smooth as it should be. Looks like it's not skipping any frames, it just slows down for a while. top command shows ~20% cpu for Xorg and ~2-5% for mplayer.

But if I play same video without hardware acceleration (drop -vc ffh264 option), video looks smooth as it should be (expect high detail scenes where CPU gets exhausted).

I've noticed this with many 1080p clips, for example "I Am Legend - 1080p Trailer (Video Type: 1920816 (1080p), 23.967 FPS, Blu-ray Profile)" from http://www.h264info.com/clips.html.

720p material plays fine with hardware acceleration.

I've read this whole thread and no one else haven't mentioned problems like this. Is it possible that intregrated 8200 is not fast enough to handle 1080p material or is there something to check/tune?

I tried increasing
#define NUM_VIDEO_SURFACES_H264 17
to 32, but it didn't make any difference.

My setup is:
M3N78-VM
-with integrated GeForce 8200 (C77) with 256MB given ram.
-2G RAM
-AMD 4850e
-kernel 2.6.29-rc2
-NVIDIA drivers 180.27 (same 1080p probs were with 180.25)
-mplayer-vdpau-3402051
-xfce without extra candy

naakka,

I've noticed the same kind of behaviour on my computer.

2GB RAM
GeForce 8600GT with 256MB RAM
kernel 2.6.28.1

Has anyone gotten smplayer to work with mplayer-vdpau? For me it works in embedded mode (after disabling ass which makes mplayer-vdpau crash), but when I go to fullscreen, I get a blackscreen...

Yes, it works for me. You need to adjust the smplayer preferences a bit. I followed these instructions:

http://smplayer.berlios.de/forums/vi...pid=4224#p4224

The most important tip for me was clearing the contents of the field "folder for storing screenshots".

patch for mplayer for ASS support with VDPAU output

http://greg.geekmind.org/mplayer/mpl...-ass-2nd.patch



source: http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.v...er.devel/51553


mplayer -ass -vc ffh264vdpau /media/WDGP1TB-1/Macross\ Saga/plus/macrossplus1v3.mkv
.....
vo_vdpau: get_image failed003 ct: 0.044 0/ 0 25% 4% 1.4% 7 0
[VD_FFMPEG] Only buffers allocated by vo_vdpau allowed.
mplayer: libmpcodecs/vd_ffmpeg.c:1198: vdpau_get_buffer: Assertion `0' failed.

without ffh264vdpau works fine (antaliasing works)

FYI, the ASS/SSA patch has been merged into the NVIDIA patches. A new version will be released soon.

I disabled Full GPU Scaling option and looks like it helped. Now TV reports going to 1080p/24 mode. Before it didn't even refresh rate were set to 24Hz... i guess it really wasn't. Funny that 720p worked ok with HA and 1080p without HA.

My 8200 is easily fast enough even for the Bird Scene but it really needs 512MB VRAM allocated to it.
