Description darkbasic 2012-05-27 05:42:47 UTC
Hi,
OS is Gentoo amd64 and my laptop is a Samsung X360 (so gm45).
I'm using x11-libs/libva git (g45-h264 branch) and x11-libs/libva-intel-driver bit (g45-h264 branch).

media-libs/gstreamer-0.10.36
media-libs/gst-plugins-base-0.10.36
media-libs/gst-plugins-bad-0.10.23

Using media-plugins/gst-plugins-vaapi git.

Also using:
linux 3.4.0-rt7 (realtime patchset)
libdrm git
x11-drivers/xf86-video-intel-2.19.0 (sna off, vaapi is much slower with sna on)
media-libs/mesa-8.0.2
x11-base/xorg-server-1.12.1.902
"SwapbuffersWait" "off"
"vblank_mode" value="0"
kwin desktop effects off

vaapi h264 works flawlessly with mplayer:

mplayer -vo vaapi -va vaapi test.mkv
MPlayer SVN-r33094-4.5.3 (C) 2000-2011 MPlayer Team

Riproduco test.mkv.

Hope you can help, no one is going to maintain mplayer-vaapi anymore and there is no hope for mplayer2-vaapi. I also tried vlc with vaapi but it sucks hards (it stutter, you just can't watch a video with vlc and vaapi).

Thanks,
Niccolò


If you need a test file: http://files.linuxsystems.it//data/public/e4ebbd641c4af55713a127c1ae59b51c.php?lang=en

200MB, 90 seconds. Quite heavy 1080p
Estimated download time: from half an hour to one hour.

Hi, 
   I want to check is there anything wrong in gstreamer-vaapi, but I can't get the test file from your link. could you setup a new link?
Thanks,
Wind

Here it is: http://files2.linuxsystems.it/test.mkv
Anyway it isn't the only video which doesn't work, I didn't find an h264 video which works.

The gstreamer-vaapi from git (today) and libva-1.0.16 and libva-intel-driver g45-h264 branch works again.

gstreamer-vaapi-git 20120914-1

Tested on parole and xnoise player, G45: X4500MHD

libva works, CPU usage 16-20 %.
Comment 4 darkbasic 2012-09-14 13:45:28 UTC
I will try again and let you know, thanks!
Comment 5 darkbasic 2012-09-16 21:28:11 UTC
It works, but it's a slideshow :(
Only mplayer is fast...

I'm sorry that I didn't find a gm45 platform. I tried this video in sandybridge and ivybridge, both works.
