Hi New to this Forum.
I am looking for some help on vdpau, either to get it to work or know that it will never work with my HW.
Currently it does not work when I use the command vdpauinfo: I get
display: :0.0 screen: 0
Error creating VDPAU device: 1
The environment:- hope to be as complete a possible.
Ubuntu 13.10 with the ubuntu nvidia driver after upgrading from 13.04 64bit
Motherboard is a Gigabyte H55M-UD2H - with on board video, disabled by setting BIOS to PEG
Video card GT220 and last week obtained GT610, To close out a video card HW issue, if there was one, both cards give the same.
I can type commands and can interpret them, I have not got the knowledge which commands
would help in actually determining what the root cause is. I have trawled the web and followed parts of suggestions/advise but never with any success. I feel that this should have a methodical approach. Hence my request for help.
I have "lspci" output which seems to suggest that nvidia is found and the driver is used. (see snippet 1)
I have Xorg log output which does mention VDPAU in the same area where Nvidia is mentioned. ( see snippet 2)
I presume this is good.
The end goal is to have XBMC using VDPAU - therefore I thought that "good output" from vdpauinfo would be
the right first step.
Please help. Thanks.
