    Advice with video issues.

    Hello All,Looking for help with basic video problems.Online flash video, BBC iPlayer and others are very choppy, particularly when in a small viewing window. Some improve when opened in full screen. Media Players, VLC, can have the same problem. I've dropped the screen resolution from 1360*768 to 800*600, which improves playback, but then I have to change res back:/
    Any offers?
    Thanks in advance

    Re: Advice with video issues. lshw included!

    Did you paste directly from a terminal - if you didn't try again and use the code tag button - # post that here and I'll move things about so people can read it.

    It will work

    Re: Advice with video issues. lshw included!

    Try installing the NVIDIA driver using the "Additional Drivers" tool, then use a VDPAU-aware application like SMPlayer and select vdpau as your video output driver.

    Re: Advice with video issues. lshw included!

    Tried SMPlayer with vdpau selected as output, no video is displayed at all?
    "Video filters are disabled when using vdpau"

    Re: Advice with video issues.

    The "video filters" warning means that you cannot do things like take screenshots or otherwise apply one of mplayer's various post-processing filters. That is because the video processing happens on the NVIDIA card out of reach of mplayer.

    What if you try xv or one of the opengl alternatives instead of vdpau?

    Another possibility is that you are trying to watch an H.264 video that uses "10-bit" color encoding. The VDPAU hardware has no circuitry to decode these so you need to fall back on using the regular CPU with xv or opengl.

    You can look in Options > Logs > MPlayer to see what errors mplayer threw when it tried to play your file. An easier option is simply to run mplayer from the command line and see what it reports:

    Code:
    mplayer /path/to/your/video/file

    Re: Advice with video issues.

    Hi thanks for that, it's so much better. Videos play full screen perfectly in SMPlayer! I don't need to switch resolutions every time I want to watch a video or go online. Magic
    Weirdly they're still choppy in small screen. Which is the same problem as I'm having online. It's more of a curiosity than a significant problem.
    Cheers
