I recently switched to a new hardware platform, namely an Intel Core i3 2100T running on a GigaByte Z68MX-UD2H-B3.

Following this guide, H264 playback works like a charm using vaapi.
My problem is basically any other codec. Playing a MPEG4/DivX/etc file results in green/violet tinted movie, massive frame skipping and faster audio playback - just to name a few examples.

xbmc.log (ignore the errors and warning regarding AEON.MQ2 skin Wink).
Code:

Hallo all!

At first: Alan, many thanx for you How-To. I got vaapi to work with it :-) Cpu load at 2-10%. That is fantastic! And I am a linux newbie :-) (but I tried 4 How-To at all)

But I still have some problems:

1) I added the xorg.conf from the first page here. After activating the "Adjust display refresh rate to match video" the first time, the screen changes the refresh rate after starting a video to 24Hz but xbmc crashes. After restart xbmc (not rebooting the system!) and starting a film with this refreshrate, every things works fine. But the next time (after rebooting the HTPC) starting XBMC with the "Adjust display refresh rate to match video" enabled, no video starts. I only get an black screen where I only can see the mouse-arrow. So I have to kill the XBMC process in another terminal. Here are the last lines from the crash-log from xbmc:

**********************************
Until now I changed the "pause during refresh rate change" from 6 to 12 seconds. That didn't solve the problem. What can I do to solve the problem?

2) When I boot without the receiver and Plasma-TV (Samsung PS50C7790) turned on, the colors are getting a little purple (but connecting to the HTPC by remote, the colors are ok on my laptop). I already had this Problem with Natty. What can it be and how can I solve this Problem? After rebooting the HTPC with the receiver and TV on, the colors are on the Plasma-TV ok. The screenshots are even both ok. So i think is has maybe only to do with the Plasma-TV?!?

Thanx for your help, guys!

So, I solved the problems on my own :-)

1) I changed "vertical blanc sync" in xbmc to "Let driver choose"
That solved the problem. Now the TV changes it's refresh rate every time I start a film with another refresh rate. No crashes of XBMC any more :-)
"Sync playback to display" is of and "Pause during refresh rate change" is 6.0 seconds.

That works fantastic. Totally smooth video playback without any stuttering!!!

2) I had to change the hdmi video setting of my receiver, so the receiver passthrough the videosignal. Now I can start the HTPC without turning on the TV and receiver and the colors are like they should be :-)

Hi couchtyp,
the problem you describe is related to the latest 7.12 mesa builds on xedgers-ppa. You can fix this by using the 7.11 Mesa packages from Ubuntu ONERIC.

Thanks for the info, Pitti.
I'll switch back to the intel drivers (switched to nvidia temporarily) and will try to downgrade (do a release-upgrade Sad) as soon as I'm home.

Hey guys,

I have the following problem:

Playing DTS-HD Master or Dolby True-HD Files I can only see, that the receiver is playing DTS or Dolby Digital over HDMI. Or won't I see the DTS-HD Master sign on the receiver because it is lpcm and not bitstreaming?

Many greetings!

hey guys,

I didn't check the whole thread and I didn't even use the guide, but have any of you seen this kind of screen corruption?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hYi5QKt2KfA

It happens on my Arch Linux machine (Intel G620T, XBMC compiled from Git yesterday, libva 1.0.14). I reinstalled the machine and it was working fine before, so this must have been caused by some update I guess.

I tried different video settings, but none of it fixes it (except disabling VAAPI obviously).

It also doesn't happen always, sometimes it starts as soon as I start the movie, sometimes after a few minutes, sometimes not for hours, it's totally random...

Maybe anyone of you has a clue. I'm not really in the mood to downgrade packages. Wink

There is nothing interesting in the log file btw...

Litte update on my part...
  • removed everything related to xorg-edgers ppa
  • dist-upgrade to oneiric
  • reinstalled xorg and xbmc
  • created Lircmap.xml for mceusb remote to work with lirc 0.9.0 Wink

Works like a charm now.

I bought a lenovo laptop with Intel HD Graphic. I'm glad to find a howto and have this kind of result :

Everything seems good but this what mplayer says :

Why vdpau talk about nvidia driver when I do not have any nvdia gpu in the laptop ? Is there any link or something to do ?

sorry for my rusty english, I hope you understand something... And many thanks to alan for this howto !

Hi, I cannot make VAAPI acceleration work. Everytime I activate it there is no video, the audio is playing and I see XBMC controls and the poster of the film in front of a black screen (I can make a screenshot if needed). If I hit "stop", then XBMC freezes and I must restart it.

I'm having exactly the same problem since may :
http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid...age=23#229 (some answers on the next page, but nothing helpful)

Although I updated almost every package of my setup, the problem is exactly the same as before.

I tried another XBMC profile : same problem again.
I was using the main branch of xbmc git, but now I'm using opdenkamp's branch (xbmc-pvr) and same problem too.


With VLC it works totally fine, I can see the video :

Code:

[0x1c41630] avcodec decoder: Using VA API version 0.32 for hardware decoding.

So it's an XBMC related problem I guess.

Here is what vainfo returns :

Here is my setup :

CPU : Intel Core i3 540 (Clarkdale with "Intel HD Graphics")
OS : Gentoo Linux 10.0, kernel 3.1.5-gentoo-ipv6-64
XBMC : XBMC-PVR (opdenkamp's xbmc fork) git from today (xbmc-pvr is merged with XBMC mainline's git every week or so).

Packages for VAAPI and XBMC :

Code:

I have the same versions of packages as specified here :
http://intellinuxgraphics.org/2011Q4.html

When the VAAPI option isn't activated, everything works fine.

Any Ideas ? Am I the only one who has this problem with VAAPI acceleration in XBMC ?

Guys, I have a brand new guide, which is a lot more simplified and probably works a lot better with first generation Core processors.

http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=114368

I'd appreciate if someone could test it on first gen Core GPUs so that I can recommend the new guide to other users with the CPUs.

Always read the XBMC online-manual, FAQ and search the forum before posting.
Do not e-mail XBMC-Team members directly asking for support. Read/follow the forum rules.
For troubleshooting and bug reporting please make sure you read this first.

It didn't help for me (and I'm using Gentoo so the commands are different Wink), but for Ubuntu users your guide looks very simple indeed, good work.

Well, it looks like it came from that configure option :
--enable-external-libraries

I recompiled XBMC without it and now it works !

Even if my external ffmpeg was up to date from the git everytime and with VAAPI activated, it looks like it was messing up with the VAAPI of XBMC... So now I'm using XBMC's internal ffmpeg, I will test different video formats to see if everything is ok.
