No.
It's feature set A vs feature set B;-)

Thank you for testing, Carl Eugen

Well, I'm sure you must be right, you probably know as much about this as anyone ... it is interesting that vdpauinfo doesn't report any significant difference among the two chipsets, however.

I mean, diffing the reports from the two chipsets (NVS 140M vs. 8100) showed only the most trivial change:
Code:
$ diff -b vdpauinfo.nvs140M.out vdpauinfo.8100.out 
19,20c19,20
< H264_MAIN            41  8192  2048  2048
< H264_HIGH            41  8192  2048  2048
---
> H264_MAIN            41  8190  2032  2048
> H264_HIGH            41  8190  2032  2048
Are you saying that vdpauinfo needs more work?

Absolutely not.
It correctly shows the only easily visible and reliable difference between NVIDIA feature sets A and B and allows us to know about the other difference - partial vs complete acceleration - that is much more difficult to see on most systems.

I had the same problem, in h263dec.c I wrapped the test from line 608 to 626 with the following #if and #endif :

#if CONFIG_MPEG4_VDPAU_DECODER
if (CONFIG_MPEG4_VDPAU_DECODER
&& ....
...
}
#endif

and the compilation completed...

Sorry about that. When we originally created this patch-set, it was only for people who wanted MPEG-4 Part 2 support. Consequently, we didn't ensure the code compiled on older drivers without it.

You can either install the latest driver, which provides the required definitions, or we will soon be releasing a new patch at the following URL: ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/vd...789364.tar.bz2. However, that file isn't there yet; it could take anywhere from a couple hours to a couple days to appear.

Hi, I'm trying to play the lys-20031106.avi file. It doesn't work, like other MPEG-4 files.
I have the latest nvidia drivers (190.36 beta) and succesfully compiled the "mplayer-vdpau-4789364".

Hardware
-nvidia 8600M GT DDR3

Here is the output of mplayer:

Hi Everyone,

for the OpenSuSE distros you can find nVidia Video Decode and Presentation API for Unix (nVidia VDPAU) in the historic multimedia external (Open)SuSE repository:
http://packman.iu-bremen.de/suse/

in which, at the moment, you can find this pachage:
nvidia-vdpau-devel (190.36)

NOTE: when you want to find some packages on official (base + build service) and (!) external (packman, videolan, ...) repository you are suggested to look for in the "Webpin" serch site:
http://packages.opensuse-community.org

Hope that help. Have a nice day,

Carlo

I've set up a launchpad PPA for Ubuntu packages of libvdpau at: https://launchpad.net/~srwarren/+archive/ppa-libvdpau

Stephen, I submitted a libvdpau package to debian+ubuntu last month. It hasn't created much interest by the debian folks whom seem rather nvidia suspicious (to do with "free" license).
For Ubuntu, it will be in use for 9.10 and they have already made plan of using this package for the weekly mythtv build.

mplayer , mythtv and other vdpau related program are build agaist the libvdpau package in my repository : www.avenard.org/media

I use Debian but sometimes the attitude annoys me...

You should try talking with Christian Marillat who works on the debian-multimedia repositories. He may be a bit more responsive.

FYI, I filed bugs in both Ubuntu and Debian re: the NVIDIA graphics driver package packaging the libvdpau components, and the need to split those into a separate package:
