Mplayer + vdpau result in glitchy playback

Postby damnated on Mon Jul 25, 2011 4:24 pm

I have an nvidia 8600gt card, with 275.09.07 versioned driver, I have installed
Code: Select all
and selected vdpau as the output driver in mplayer.

I am playing HD video, and the CPU load is minimal, everything seems to work just fine.

However, there are glitches every now and then in the playback, without a CPU peak or anything like that. A couple of frames skip, that sort of thing. I used to have mplayer with vdpau installed on my ubuntu box, and I did not encounter these glitches, is there any way to get rid of these?
