FAQ:
Q:
Why my file plays fine with mplayer-vdpau and not with xine-vdpau?
A:
We are not using the nvidia's libavcodec patch.
We are writing decoders from scratch.
So don't expect them to be as mature as ffmpeg ones. Not yet.
Q:
Why mpeg2 doesn't use less cpu than software decoder?
A:
Because at that moment it does a lot of memcpy. This will be fixed soon, but that's not
a priority. Stability is our focus.
Q:
Is deinterlacing working?
A:
Yes. It's already quite good (doing 50i->50p), but could even be better in the future.
Q:
How do i get it working with VDR, Kaffeine, whatever.
A:
Ask VDR, Kaffeine, whatever developers.
(Note: for kaffeine you are lucky, i'm going to tell you the tip.
Build kaffeine like that: ./configure --without-xcb && make && make install)
Q:
How can i contact you?
A:
IRC: #xine-vdpau on freenode
MAIL: http://lists.kafic.ba/mailman/listinfo/xine-vdpau
Eventually, nvnews.
Q:
What information do I need if there's a problem?
A:
Run 'xine --verbose /path/to/a/working/sample' (or equivalent for your
chosen front end). You will probably be asked for this anyway, so it
helps to have it handy.
