Hi - i have an older PC, 2.8 P4 w GeForce 6600. I can watch 720p no problem with the default configuration, however i'd like to watch 1080i/p content.
ive been trying to figure out ho to offload processing to the various cards in the system, and use the hyperthreading in the P4, but no luck yet.
Ive been trying this: mplayer dvb://channel -ao dsl -vo vdpau
and getting this: [vdpau] Error when calling vdp_device_create_x11: 1
ive insalled the xswat drivers for nvidia-current, and libvdpau1 is installed.
im still a bit of a linux beginner. Any help s appreciated.
