    And of course looks like Jaunty is going to ship with build 65, not 60 as I mentioned before.

    Mplayer is moving ahead. Todays compile is working on VDPAU for AVC, VC1, WMV2 and MPEG1/2. The NVIDIA 180.37 drivers have important fixes for GPU acceleration. Now we just need fixes for:


    * Working motion adaptive temporal deinterlacer unlike the crappy simple one implemented currently
    * MS WMA Pro decoding - this has been coming for ages and not delivered despite GSOC work on it


    And I'll be really impressed if libavcodec ever gets a decoding feature for:

    MS WMVP
    MS WVP2
    Intel IV41
    Intel IV50

    Yup and I am impressed...

    I saw your other thread and downloaded the demo from nearest file-sharing network....Samsung.Demo.Oceanic.Life.x264.1080p.40Mbps.mkv, 430MB

    Wow !!!... some CPU fluctuations but overall perfect..



    (8600GT, 180.37, latest mplayer-SMPlayer as GUI>VDPAU as output)

    Yes my friend

    There is the power of VDPAU

    In that file, you have AVC encoding, and to make matters extreme, its 1920x1080 at a bitrate of 40mbps!!

    My old test system with its boat anchor AMD Sempron single core does it without breaking a sweat about 15% cpu utilisation. On the other hand my quad core corei7 system without vdpau cant do it........

    Just a heads up for a cool vdpinfo utility:

    Re: HowTo: Install the very latest MPlayer under Jaunty Jackalope

    I'm trying to combine this guide with this CoreAVC for Linux guide, since I have an MSI Wind, which can't play 720p content without CoreAVC.

    Everything looks good so far, but I can't manage to pull mplayer from svn.
    Code:
    zorael@tleilax:~/coreavc$ svn checkout svn://svn.mplayerhq.hu/mplayer/trunk mplayer
    svn: Can't connect to host 'svn.mplayerhq.hu': Connection timed out
    
    zorael@tleilax:~/coreavc$ ping svn.mplayerhq.hu

    Hmmm.... neither can I at the moment. Browsing via web is down also. I guess we just have to wait....

    Cool Re: HowTo: Install the very latest MPlayer under Jaunty Jackalope

    No quotes but I do have a question.

    I've avoided using Linux until the horrible video tearing with ATI drivers is under control. Seems that milestone is being reached with the release of Jaunty. However, the alpha 6 dist is still quite green and quite slow, even incomplete. I need something more stable. So I installed Intrepid and upgraded to the xserver-xorg package from Jaunty to get the tear free video. It works OK, finally. Now I need to be able to use my game pad in Mplayer and something as simple as compiling mplayer becomes a nightmare. Apparently there are some big changes in the libc6, libxi-dev and a few other packages that prevent me from satisfying compile requirements.

    I just want to be able to add joystick support. Can I compile mplayer on my debian 5.0 server and expect it to run under Jaunty?

    Hi Siggma,

    I am afraid that I have no answer for what sounds like a fairly complex compilation problem. I hope that perhaps others may have some insight into this problem.

    Apologies,

    Andrew

    NO biggie, mixing Jaunty and Intrepid repos is the problem. I'll just have to load a virtual copy of Intrepid to compile it I suppose. Thanks for the response and all the time and effort you've put into writing this and other threads.
