View Full Version : mythbuntu video stutter

March 15th, 2010, 09:51 PM
I posted this incorrectly on Mutimedia & Video initially until I found this forum topic.

I have the latest mythbuntu istalled from about a month ago release. I have 9400 GT video card with VDPAU (level1) turned on for acceleration. My MB is a old
AMD 939 board with Athlon signle core 2Ghz (2GB, DDR 400). I have periodic video stutter (about once in 10min) for about 15/30sec or so when I watch recorder shows (HD material). I usually either pause or rewind for a few second and stutter will go away.

I have gone through mythtv VDPAU suggestions for turning off composite, cpu freq scaling.
I also added triple buffer. I increased video buffer in backend_setup to large amount. Even with all this I still get the hiccups. Note that there is no problem in watching videos of from a DVD folder (obviuously this is not HD) from a remote machine. I checked the machine load when the stutter happens and it does not show anything more than 20-30%

Can any one suggest what other things I can do to solve this?
