On my A6-3500 I notice a distinct lack of video quality - significant aliasing artefacts. Particularly with SD material, but also with 720. It's probably a scaling artefact from using a very simple scaler, at a guess?
Users are reporting this for ION as well - see:
(that said, previous betas on the A6-3500 either hung at splash (fusion builds) or had significantly skippy/choppy playback (generic builds) - note not jitter a la the never ending ION thread, a much more aggressive frame jumpy flickering sort of thing. So this is definitely a big move in the right direction with xvba, but it would be nice to see video quality back (at least) to where it was (SD video quality from XBMC has never been great compared to the hardware players like popcorn etc. - but it has certainly been better than this).
I've got the same problem. A lot of jaggies and aliasing with the new version and the new VDPAU interop options (RGB/YUV) activated.
You can use this sample to test with and without the new options enabled : http://deuch.free.fr/videos/sample-jaggies.mp4
Pay attention to the border of the table and the paper sheet (720p anime content for record)
Does disabling Interop YUV fix this issue?
Could you test with this build? :)
Yes without interop options, i do not have problem
Do you a Xtreamer version for testing ?
Do you want that i test this version with interop functions enabled ?
You can try enabling it, but the option isn't configurable here. But there is a glitch in the patch, if the feature is set to "true" when you update, it wont be disabled before you go to System->Video->Playback. hehe
If you are curious, check the guisettings.xml for this setting:
This should be false.
So what did you add/modifiy/change in this beta version ?
nothing other then that you are not allowed to enable interop yuv. Due to it being broken atm. Nothing else.
@bossanova808 you was able to test a recent devel?
Unfortunately not, we've had some guests in our house and time for tinkering has been < 0 for the last week or so.
I hope to test one soon and will report back as soon as I get a chance.
@bossanova808 ok :-) then i will release the beta 5 without your ok :-) hope our last fixes have fixed this issue too...
Make sure to just check the settings so it will reset whatever you have from last time. Reopen if it still exists.
