Re: MPlayer + VDPAU + Divx = Fail
Yes, I've also run into this. I've been useing XV for some time now instead.
This problem was reported by somebody else over at Packman's mailing list but got no response.
[packman] MPlayer issues with DivX and VDPAU
The current mplayer cannot play divx videos using vdpau. It tries to force the use of ffodivxvdpau even though it's not supported on certain video cards. I downgraded mplayer and it's working fine but smplayer doesn't support the old mplayer without ignoring warnings from yast.
I've been using vdpau for over a year and never had a problem until now.
Nobody else having this problem?
BTW, I'm using 11.3 and nvidia 8200 gpu.
Thanks, I hadn't thought about that. It seems to solve problems regarding other codecs and VDPAU.
One note about the proprietary nVidia driver, ... my experience with openSUSE is after one does a fresh install of the proprietary nVidia driver, to use vdpau it is necessary to re-install (each time) libvdpau1-0.4-5.6.x86_64 (or what ever the latest 'libvdpau1' version may be).
