help getting vdpau playback working

Postby swabo on Sat Jul 30, 2011 3:39 pm

I can't seem to get vdpau playback working and I'm a bit stuck.

When I try this:

Code: Select all
mplayer -vo vdpau -ao alsa  VID00001.MP4

I get audio only, no video, and this in the console output:

[vdpau] Error when calling vdp_device_create_x11: 1
Error opening/initializing the selected video_out (-vo) device.

I also get similar errors with mythtv trying to use vdpau.
I'm fairly sure I have the appriorate things installed:

Code: Select all
$ sudo wajig list-installed|grep vdpau

I am looking for any directions I can get to help me troubleshoot this.
