Compiled against wrong VDPAU version?

I'm using the Ubuntu 14.04 nightly package. Does the build need adjustment for Kodi 16?

yeah, probably. A new libvdpau needs packaging and testing. Since I don't have any hardware to test this, its pretty low prio for me.

I could probably help with testing, being a VM I can easily revert changes and the low power cpu is a good test of offload performance; could you update the packaging? I also have access to the Astra 19E 4K Test Satellite channel so could verify that the TVHeadend addon handles HEVC (It works with software decode on Windows so TVH server is OK for this).

Is HEVC-10bit - won't work. See your vdpauinfo.

Oh, hopefully that will be covered when Nvidia get started on the second phase of HEVC support.

Is there someone in particular I should contact about the Ubuntu packing updates? I can test multiple versions (eg. 14.10 too). Or is it best to compile my own at this point?

If you did not get it yet - you are talking with the staff that is doing the packaging work, that is wsnipex.

If you really want to help us, package a working libvdpau (see the not yet released ubuntu), build kodi manually against it and provide the package of libvdpau to wsnipex.

If you already have a new enough libvdpau and libvdpau-dev installed, try:

Code:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:team-xbmc/xbmc-ppa-build-depends
sudo apt-add-repository -s ppa:team-xbmc/xbmc-nightly
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get build-dep kodi

Code:
git clone https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc.git
cd xbmc
./bootstrap ; ./configure --enable-vdpau --disable-vaapi --disable-libcec --disable-debug
make -j4

After everything is succesfully compiled, try to run ./kodi.bin from that location.

Any news here? What do we need to provide you in order you can do the above requested howto?

Sorry, got distracted by a new CEC adapter. Cloning now.

I think I might need to create a clean VM and start from the beginning.

Disk full? next time post your config.log please

It works. Smile

CPU usage is still <20% with HEVC and all 4 clips decoded perfectly.

Let me know if I can help with the libvdpau updated package.

Cool - what about the DVB channel it's really 10 bit?

Havent managed to compile the hts addon but according to VLC it is 10bit:
Type: Video
Original ID: 210
Codec: MPEG-H Part2/HEVC (H.265) (hevc)
Resolution: 3840x2176
Display resolution: 3840x2160
Decoded format: Planar 4:2:0 YUV 10-bit LE

Yeah - that won't work yet - sadly.
