your using the wrong decoders, you need to use ffmpeg_vdpau decoders for the various formats

Thank you for the links to nvidia news and video-clips, kodiakmax.
The links to zenana and naendo are not working in may case:

Sorry for the Italian messages...
About VDPAU support in mplayer yesterday it was not included, I personally spoke with Thev00d00 on the Sabayon IRC channel and he promised me to build it with that flag set in a couple of hours... so, now, it is there!:

Dealing with the mplayer results, I don't really know what is wrong:
- On the desktop ok, the card does not support VDPAU.
- On the laptop with -vo vdpau I get absolutely no performance gain, with -vo vdpau -vc ffh264vdpau it gets crazy: all the times I run it the behavior is different: once black screen, once playing but flashing frames, once playing with cottupt frames, once flashing two diferent frames forever, once crashing... and the konsole output scrolls with continuous errors (I can't report them now).

I'll continue trying.

Thanks for the codec tip. Now I'm down to about 2% CPU usage when I run with this command

mplayer -vo vdpau -vc ffh264vdpau I*.mp4

To bad the gui front-ends don't let me select it or save it as default. Guess I'll run all my video clips from command line If I want to optimize them. I'll have to read up on all the filters and stuff to that aren't included with those front-ends. This thread has given me a little more to think about at any rate.

As for your problem thenthenio I'm not too sure. You could maybe also ask over at the nvidia forums see someone with similar hardware has had a similar problem. Maybe try reinstalling your video card drivers?
If you check the wiki, use the search function and google you can find the answer to most of your questions.

Remember to mark your thread [Solved] if your issue is fixed.
