I’ve seen several threads in Ubuntu regarding implementing vaapi/xvba enabled media players for ATI GPU rendering.
Does anyone know of any precompiled rpms for 11.3 (or tips for building on opensuse). I’ve installed Hellgasts xvba-video-amd rpms from the build service.
I wasn’t able to successfully build my own mplayer-vaapi from
Index of /~gbeauchesne/mplayer-vaapi
any tips would be appreciated
Have you tried VLC from here? Additional package repositories - openSUSE ?
if VLC cant do it, not sure what can.
I set up all of my multimedia per the installation guide here (oldcpu/caf4962/reddwarf):
Multi-media and Restricted Format Installation Guide
From this I believe that I am using the packman version.
I don’t think that should be a huge problem should it? If I change to the videolan version I suspect codecs might be broken
As an aside hellgast has a posting on the vlc site…,
The VideoLAN Forums • View topic - Xvba backend package in vlc opensuse 11.3 repo
Do you need any other packages besides xvba-video-amd and mplayer-vaapi ? … if you search for VaAPI rpms you obtain this hit:
software.opensuse.org: Search Results
There was an old post#2 here: Closed Source Release Of The AMD XvBA Back-End To VA-API for Linux
If you succeed, it would be nice to see an openSUSE user write a guide.
