It should be less memory consuming.

Default Re: TurboCache and VDPAU (9300GS)

No, I didn't tried it yet, but I don't think it makes any difference since the actual VDPAU driver implementation doesn't use the memory given through TC and most probably this has nothing to do with mplayer.

That is why I'm asking Stephen if I even need to bother anymore with trying the latest stuff or at least to hope for a fix/feature support in the near future - I have a T61 with Quadro NVS 140M, 128 MB + TC(512 MB final) and I've tried mplayer + VDPAU driver with some h264 samples and for some of them managed to make them work after changing some code in the mplayer, but for some I didn't, no matter what - always got the out of vram error (23).

I tried with the latest nvidia provided patch (mplayer compiled with nvidia's script) + driver 180.35. The same problems ...

Could you try latest MPlayer svn?

No news at present. It's on the list of things to investigate, but not being actively worked on right now.

I'll give it a try - I didn't know that mplayer integrated the vdpau support. Thanks for the info.

I've got the latest svn mplayer and compiled it with

./configure --disable-x264-lavc --disable-x264 --enable-vdpau
make

but when playing Grey.ts, the player window is just pink blocks and only the sound is ok. I've attached the log.

OK, on the previous run, I had compiz running. After settings the visual effects to none, Grey.ts was playing fine. Attached is the log.

It's not unexpected that some files will not play (even though I consider 128MB quite a lot), but I hope that at least all the files you got to work previously with manual hacks now work out-of-the-box?
You could also try starting MPlayer with e.g. -xy 200 which results in the video playing in a small window and should save some video RAM, too.
Of course I do not know if maybe NVidia has hard-coded some limits into vdp_decoder_create so it would refuse to play the file no matter how much video RAM is really free, though the error message does not sound like it...

Please do not use --enable-vdpau
MPlayer's configure is not autoconf-based, so --enable usually forces features instead of auto-detecting them (exceptions are xvmc, gui and menu, iirc).

I hope you appreciate my difficult tries to convince you to test MPlayer svn.
