Hi

I've recently found out that it's now possible to use MadVR with DXVA on AMD/ATI graphics chipsets via the new Lav Filter DXVA copyback feature.

I want to try it out myself at some point this weekend but have limited time. Has anyone had success with this before I spend hours trying to get it working? I can't find many users' experiences on Google so far as it's quite new.

Some questions I have:
  • I have the AMD Lynx A8 3850 APU - does it work ok with this set-up?
  • Does hardware DXVA deinterlacing work too with this configuration? I know MadVR can do this now but not sure if it works in conjunction with Lav's DXVA copyback feature.
  • Does it work with all types of content reliably? eg H264, MPEG-2, Div X in the normal containers, MKV, VIDEO_TS, AVI, MPG?
  • Has anyone tried using it for Live TV in eg Mediaportal/JRiver MC?

Thanks in advance for any info.

Dom

Does this work for Clarkdale/SandyBridge too? i.e. can we use Lav/MadVR for smooth playback without a discrete graphics card now?

Here, AMD Llano APU under madVR. Playback is just perfect. DXVA2 for divx/xvid won't work (grayed out).

As for Intel HD Graphics, you'd better use Intel QuickSync (also integrated in LAV Video Decoder).

Your post on Llano + madvr is total gold, Renethx. More than slightly embarrassed I didn't come across it during my googling...

Will give it a go this weekend.

Only works for Sandy Bridge though, not for Clarkdale.
Sadly, Clarkdale (and other earlier Intel GPUs) is also not fully supported by DXVA2, so its really not a good GPU to have
