View Full Version : [SOLVED] VA-API with ATI Radeon HD3200

May 31st, 2010, 09:48 PM
I have an ASUS motherboard with a build-in ATI Radeon HD3200 graphic card. I am trying to use the HW MPEG4 decoder. However, using MPlayer with the “–vo = VA-API“ option gives an error message and no video is shown.


per@music:~$ vainfo
libva: libva version 0.31.0-sds6
Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".
libva: va_getDriverName() returns 0
libva: Trying to open /usr/lib/va/drivers/fglrx_drv_video.so
libva error: dlopen of /usr/lib/va/drivers/fglrx_drv_video.so failed: libva- cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
libva: va_openDriver() returns -1
vaInitialize failed with error code -1 (unknown libva error),exit

The “fglrx_drv_video.so” links to “xvba_drv_video.so” in the same directory.

Any ideas are appreciated, as I am still new to Linux.
