Default Got my G210 today! Vdpau feature set C is coming to your desktop ?

Got my Nvidia G210 desktop card today.

How can i test vdpau feature set C features.

Are there any mplayer/ffmpeg builds available ?
What about the hq upscaler. How can i test that ?

I realized that Alsa is not finding any audio hdmi device on the card. It is not yet supported on linux ? Isn't it orking the same way that integrated motherboards make hdmi audio ?

Thx

Use vdpauinfo tool - it is similar in use to xvmcinfo, xvinfo or glxinfo. If you have this tool installed after running it it will display all VDPAU capabilities in konsole window.

Please copy-paste the output to this forum. We are also interested what VDPAU capabilities this new GPUs have.

According to wikipedia VDPAU http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VDPAU and driver hw list: ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Li...ppendix-a.html
GeForce G210 and GeForce GT 220 should support VDPAU C because of VP4 video architecture.
They are the most advanced and the best VDPAU today.

VDPAU testing tool results would be nice, de-interlacing especially?

This GPU is somewhat more powerful than the 8600GT which is known do perform well at deinterlacing. You can expect it to do just as well.

At least VP4 is faster at decoding h264. It should be able to decode 1080p@50Hz.
But this GT218 is not very impressive in GL matter (no temporal-spatial).

I have 1.0.21 which has pretty good support for nvidia integrated hdmi audio on motherboard, but with this card it shows nothing.

I saw that the card is only capable of hq upscaling level 1. What does that mean ? It means that it can do it except with not so good quality ?

Level 1 is the max hq upsampling for now. There is no card yet which offers more than Level 1.
Higher levels are probably reserved for future Nvidia GPUs.

Thanks for the info. It is good to know.

Anyone knows about hdmi audio support on linux ?

The vendor ID for that card probably isn't added to ALSA yet. File a bug report with the ALSA project bugtracker to get it added: https://bugtrack.alsa-project.org/alsa-bug

See for example this bug report for the 9300M: https://bugtrack.alsa-project.org/al...ew.php?id=4505
