Re: MythVideo playback profiles

No need to crawl into a hole. :) I did an update and tried again. I think it now tries VDPAU but fails and falls back to ffmpeg. Here's the log.

Re: MythVideo playback profiles

I'm pretty sure it's the latest version 31 fixes build. I usually check by going to https://github.com/MythTV/mythtv/commits/fixes/31 and looking at the latest commit guid. The latest there is 9442315 and the version in my log file is v31.0+fixes.202006181245. 9442315 ~ubuntu18.04.1. I'm hoping that...

Re: MythVideo playback profiles

Looks like it's still failing. I was going to post log file outputs but I diff'ed them and they're identical. I re-ran vdpauinfo as well and it's also identical. Here is the beginning of the mythfrontend.log file showing I hope the right version with your commit. May 20 09:38:51 Aspire-R1600 mythfro...

Re: MythVideo playback profiles

I'm assuming this would be a coding change and not something I can change in some configuration file?

Thanks

Re: MythVideo playback profiles

Can you post the full output of 'vdpauinfo'? Glad you found something that explains thing.

Re: MythVideo playback profiles

That all looks good - but I should have been clearer:) Can you show the full output from 'mythfrontend -v playback' from when you are trying to play a video that doesn't work (and maybe for comparison; also when playing a recording successfully). I should have known what you meant as well. :) Here'...

Re: MythVideo playback profiles

I assumed that's how the playback profile worked but when my videos stopped working in version 30 and 31 I got confused. I checked and all my settings are as you suggest. Here is the output of the 'mythfrontend -v playback' command. "Display: Not requesting EGL for vendor 'NVIDIA, 1.4'" 2020-05-08 1...

Re: MythVideo playback profiles

I just upgraded to Myth 31 but still can't get videos to play properly. Can anyone guide me to a list of valid playback plugins that can go in the Default Player box under Player Settings?

Re: MythVideo playback profiles

When I put "VDPAU Normal" in the Default Player box under Player Settings the videos won't play at all. Is there a difference between Playback Profiles and Playback plugins?
