Default error with vdpau and svn-mplayer

Hello guys:

watching a certain x264 video with the recent svn mplayer, the 190.42 nvidia-driver and the following options:

Quote:
/usr/bin/mplayer -noquiet -nofs -nomouseinput -vc ffh264vdpau,ffmpeg12vdpau,ffwmv3vdpau,ffvc1vdpau, -lavdopts threads=2 -sub-fuzziness 1 -identify -msglevel demux=6 -slave -vo vdpau -ao alsa -nokeepaspect -dr -double -input conf=/usr/share/smplayer/input.conf -stop-xscreensaver -wid 4194319 -monitorpixelaspect 1 -noass -subfont-autoscale 1 -subfont-text-scale 5 -subcp enca:de:ISO-8859-15 -subcc -vid 0 -aid 0 -subpos 100 -cache 10000 -ss 721 -vf-add screenshot -vf-clr -noslices -channels 2 -nojoystick /Files/Filme/2001-Space_Odyssey.mkv
just makes the screen of my laptop completely frozen.

Sometimes there is some time left before it freezes, so i was lucky to capture the output below and save it to a file before the screen got locked.

The options above are used by some gui for mplayer, which is called smplayer. Using the driver xv, the film gets rendered fine.

Interestingly, when I watch the film by calling mplayer directly with just one option, namely -vo vdpau, mplayer renders the film correctly.

Well, but here is the mplayer log that I could save before my screen got freezed:

Unfortunately, I cannot give more information. Since the screen often freezes with this film I do not want to do many tests.

I use is a gentoo 64 bit distro. The above behavior was on a thinkpad T61 with an Quadro NVS 140M (GPU 0).
Bios: 60.86.3e.00.00, Memory: 512 MB for the graphics card.
The screen was 1680x1050 pixels (331x210 millimeters), resolution: 129x127 dots per inch, depth: 24. The system has a core duo with 1 GB Ram and 2GB swap space.

Watching the film with the driver xv and similar options is perfectly possible and works without errors. Furthermore, calling mplayer directly with the only option -vo vdpau also works and the film can be displayed.

Your mplayer log is cut, that makes it less helpful!

The correct command you search for (to test hardware accelerated decoding) is
mplayer -vo vdpau -vc ffh264vdpau /Files/Filme/2001-Space_Odyssey.mkv
Code:
[vdpau] Failed creating VDPAU decoder: The system does not have enough resources to complete the requested operation at this time.
If you still see this error after a restart, you cannot decode this video hardware-accelerated with your current configuration.

Default Re: error with vdpau and svn-mplayer

Can you play other h264 videos of similar resolution? How much video RAM does your laptop have? That "Failed creating VDPAU decoder: The system does not have enough resources to complete the requested operation at this time." error suggests the VDPAU implementation has some resource problem, and insufficient available video RAM is the most obvious possibility. Other people have reported memory problems on cards with 256 MiB RAM.

It is strange. When I'm doing this command: (that is, without the -vc option)

I'm getting a window and I can see the film. However, with those errors:

Default Re: error with vdpau and svn-mplayer

Interestingly, I can't capture the output of the console with the debug variables on and the -vc ffh264vdpau option.

There would be much output, the screen would freeze and the logfile, generated by tee, or just by >> in bash, would not show the console output after restarting the computer.

Instead, when I restarted my computer with the off/on button, I found some other random file from my computer under the name of the logfile!

Default Re: error with vdpau and svn-mplayer

I have an R61 with the exact same graphicscard. I have the same problem, but figured out that when using a DE without compositing, I can play even 1080p material without problems using VDPAU. I have therefore installed fluxbox to watch HD-material with hardware-acceleration. To me it seems, that using a compositing window-manager like compiz or even a recent metacity where compositing is turned on by default, the video-ram will be eaten up so that there isn't enough left for vdpau.
Regarding video-RAM, I've just double-checked:
nvidia-settings reports 512MB and from X11-Log:
(II) Nov 29 16:52:04 NVIDIA(0): NVIDIA GPU Quadro NVS 140M (G86) at PCI:1:0:0 (GPU-0)
(--) Nov 29 16:52:04 NVIDIA(0): Memory: 524288 kBytes
(--) Nov 29 16:52:04 NVIDIA(0): VideoBIOS: 60.86.3e.00.00
(II) Nov 29 16:52:04 NVIDIA(0): Detected PCI Express Link width: 16X
(--) Nov 29 16:52:04 NVIDIA(0): Interlaced video modes are supported on this GPU

Well, I should perhaps add that I'm using kde4.3.

Now I tried to disable compositing and the desktop effects in Kde4.3.

At least the screen does not freeze, but there is still no picture when viewing the film with -vc ffh264vdpau option.
However, since the screen did not freeze, I was able to make a log file with the detailed debug variables enabled.

By the way, if someone names me a tool how that is able to cut out a few seconds of the film in question without altering it, i can perhaps upload a few seconds of the film in question to nvidia's ftp.

The problem is that the film is an 8GB *.mkv file. Therefore it must be cut somehow before I can upload it to Nvidia's ftp.

However I don't know a method that can cut a few seconds of an *.mkv film without changing the file content.

I have now made a change in xorg.conf. I have added:

Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "Enable"
Option "RENDER" "True"
Option "DAMAGE" "True"
EndSection

and

Option "RenderAccel" "True"
Option "AllowGLXWithComposite" "True"

in the device section. Now I can view the film even with the -vc option. Hoewever, there are still errors:
