    :O
    libdirac0c2a is in Intrepid Universe. It sounds like you are too inexperienced to be messing with this stuff. As I've said before, the instructions weren't meant for beginners.

    I can waste my time... and I love learn something...
    I don't know libdirac0c2a and the standard libdirac library... but I've tried it, and works.
    Know I'm back to standard libdirac and I try to compile myself (I've solved the problem with vdpau library).

    Re: HOWTO: Nvidia Driver + VDPAU + Smplayer +Mplayer

    Hello

    I have got the following error for several days when using smplayer:
    Code:
    Starting playback...
    VDec: vo config request - 1280 x 720 (preferred colorspace: H.264 HIGH VDPAU acceleration)
    Could not find matching colorspace - retrying with -vf scale...
    Opening video filter: [scale]
    The selected video_out device is incompatible with this codec.
    Try appending the scale filter to your filter list,
    e.g. -vf spp,scale instead of -vf spp.
    [VD_FFMPEG] Unexpected init_vo error.
    I suppose that it overrides the vdpau output driver setting in the General tab of smplayer, because of the "Could not find matching colorspace" error.

    Could anybody please tell me whether I am right and/or how to solve the problem.

    You might also be interested to know that I am not having that problem with xine-vdpau that is also installed on the system.

    Thanks in advance for any reply.

    Cheers

    As I said in the original post, blank out the path in the "Folder for storing screenshots" box in General Preferences.

    I got it working in Kubuntu Jaunty but you have to turn off kwin with its desktop effects. If you don't, you'll get a python process taking all available CPU cycles, causing some frame drops.

    I shut it off with 'metacity --replace', and put it back after with 'kwin --replace'. You could make a little wrapper script if you want. I did this for XBMC which also runs slow with kwin running.

    AdrianVeidt, good work and great posts, I used the mplayer in the repo, is it normal to have one processor completely saturated on a X2 5000+ and 8400gs(G98 core) when playing 1080p? It seems that other people's CPU usage are all lower. Thanks,

    hi fixture,

    I get less than 5% CPU usage on a X2 3800+.
    Did you check what process is saturating your CPU?

    Hey, Beau, thanks for taking an interest, what is your video card? I am pretty sure it's the Mplayer taking the processor time. To make sure that I am measuring the real world usage, I had to full screen the 1080p clip and ssh into my box, and top says it's Mplayer.

    this is impossible to install in jaunty since it requires libartsc0 and artsd has been taken out of jaunty
