    Getting Vdpau to work with SMplayer

    Just switched from Ubuntu to Xubuntu in order to ditch unity.

    Loving how fast this is. All I have done since doing an entire clean install was updates, then installed the lastest nvidia driver from x-swat ppa (version 304.51 in nvidia x server settings). I also installed xubuntu-restricted-extras as well as any other programs I use.

    Now, when trying to run a .mkv that is h.264 encoded with either smplayer, or mplayer from terminal, I get the same error no matter what I try.

    Where did I go wrong?

    Videos play fine using VX but take up about 50% of my core 2 duo.....

    Re: Getting Vdpau to work with SMplayer

    there is another problem regarding VDPAU and videos encoded in P010 10-bit format.
    videos encoded in 8-bit run without problems with vdpau.
    Only when I switch video to XV or GL2 do 10-bit videos play.
    Is this normal? I'd like for them to use less CPU resources if possible.

    Smplayer gives me the following error message when playing 10-bit files. is it because of the subtitles?
    Only solution is to install Mplayer2 and SMplayer2 and disable the vdpau h264 acceleration option in the config

    Re: Getting Vdpau to work with SMplayer

    VDPAU does not support 10 bit video because the nVidia GPU h/w decoder does not support 10 bit video.

    Higher bitrate/better encoding would be more usable than 10 bit..
