That would be excellent. Will you update your XVBA Frodo branch as well once 12.2 is finalized ?

sure

I didn't upgrade in a while, what is this current version with number "13" in it :-)
Is ist still frodo and is it safe to upgrade?

Code:

That is XBMC 13, codename 'Gotham' which is currently in it's 3rd alpha.
I would not upgrade unless you like having the latest of the latest and don't mind it not working now and then Smile

You can choose to remove the PPA's that point there and add wsnipex' Frodo PPA so you get the latest ' stable' XBMC 12, codename Frodo

Thx for the info, I'll switch to the frodo stable.

But I think, that fernetmenta could have an idea on howto make it work - let's wait until someone has set up a PPA for 3.9 kernel with the patches + the relevant mesa packages including the vdpau r600 shared objects.

As of 2013-04-18, Ubuntu's kernel mainline finally has a build of drm-next with the UVD patches: [1]
You'll need to also grab adequate _uvd and _rlc firmware files from [2]
And mesa patches were merged last week and are available in this PPA [3]

Unfortunately my card is HD3650 (UVD1), but for anyone with supported UVD2 HW (excludes RV770/RV790/RS780/RS880 [4]), testing of AMD OSS UVD via VDPAU is one step easier now.

I didn't keep an eye on this topic but what's the reason this work isn't in mainline?
If I submitted this as a single hunk to mainline it would show up like this:

Code:
Showing 94 changed files with 11,136 additions and 1,956 deletions.

For those who are not familiar with code: this is a huge change. I have a couple of staging branches and submit smaller changes. Some of them are at the core of the player and require thorough review which currently happens.

@pvautrin I don't get your point.

Thnx for the info..
Yes, it's huge. After 15 months and 200+ forum-pages, I am glad to see things are getting merged. Hopefully most changes end up in XBMC13/Gotham.
@pvautrin:
I gave the OSS UVD a try and tested vdpau within xbmc. To get it really working you need some more files from the firmwares that you linked. I tested on Quantal.

For now: 1080 24p works fine. There is currently no deinterlacing.

The rest of my testsamples I normally use to do xvba/vdpau regression testing don't run at all. OSS mesa does not provide glInterOp which makes things really "non optimal" (http://ftp.download.nvidia.com/XFree86/v...nterop.txt).

Sad conclusion of my testing: OSS UVD is a real good start into the right direction, but it has to come a long way until it can compete with native XVBA implementation.

@fritsch I noticed that Catalyst 13.4 is out since yesterday. Any chance they have fixed the issues you have reported that has kept us all from upgrading to newer drivers?

If my post helped you then there is a nice "Thank user" button on the bottom of the post.
Currently really busy - give it a try and report back :-)

Update: Made some short tests. The vertical sync 100% cpu back is not fixed in this release :-(

So the best driver to use for now is still the one that is installed by "sudo apt-get install fglrx" in Ubuntu 12.10 / 13.04 ?
13.04 has no working driver.
