hey guys.

my HTPC rig specs are in m sig, i just noticed last night that when i play my videos (H.264 MKV's) im am not getting hardware acceleration payback. my cpu usage is going to 80% on core 50% the other and jumps around. On openelec ive always had hardware acceleration working and would never go past 8% usage on each core.

is this an issue with the RC3?

i have playback selected as auto detect and i enabled both hardware acceleration settings (even though one is for nvidia gpu's) and nothing.

im about to just install xbmcbuntu 11 but thought i would see if i can get this to work without having to do that.


thanks
I assume the 680GTX is an nvidia card - did you download the nvidia .iso? (There are two xbmcbuntu isos, one for nvidia/intel graphics, one for amd graphics). Also have you turned on vdpau acceleration in the xbmc settings?

Not sure what is doing graphics in your second machine.

my htpc is the intel machine. which is sandy bridge running HD2000 graphics on die (cpu)

the first rig is my gaming right (not being used for this)
Yeah I thought the 680 looked a little overkill for a media PC LOL.

I am a little hazy on intel gpu acceleration, but xvba builds might be what you need:
