Sorry, this is now fixed. MPlayer is back in rawhide, just disable my repo (set enabled to 0 or delete the .repo file) if you don't want to use my version.

Hmmm and how do I install the rawhide version without upgrading to F12? If I simply try to enable rawhide and upgrade mplayer I get a missing dependency message about libc.so.6, which doesn' t look like a part of the system one would simply upgrade...

The Fedora 10 and 11 versions were also updated. You don't need to use rawhide.

Hi Hansvon, this is awesome work.

Can you give us a status update of NVIDIA VDPAU and XBMC in the rpmfusion repos? Is everything now in place to fully support this?

I am about to buy an ION nettop and would love to run Fedora on it as I don't want to be forced to run Ubuntu (dread the thought!).

MPlayer for F12 in RPMFusion supports VDPAU.
They don't package XBMC yet (?). I had read in their bugzilla that one of the packager was about to submit it...
(Fedora 12 and my two rpms are working fine on ION)

Thanks for the reply Hansvon. Looking forward to trying this out on my new ASRock ION 330HT

Edit: Hi, this is working great, but I wondered do you have audio working in F12 through your HDMI on the ION chipset?

Edit: Ignore my last edit, I was being dumb. I needed to unmute one of the SPDIF channels in alsamixer, now it's working a treat.

Note the comma at the end, this will make MPlayer look for another codec if the first four don't work on the file you're trying to play.

If you don't specify -vc, it seems MPlayer is trying to access libvdpau (it's not installed on your machine). On my PC, if libvdpau is installed and I don't specify -vc blabla, MPlayer doesn't automatically use ffh264vdpau: it uses ffh264, which is not accelerated.
Hi,

Was just going through this thread since I have problems using VDPAU too. I started MPlayer using the -vc options above but it still complains that it can't find libvdpau.so.1

I have a 9400M and my Nvidia driver version is 190.42 on Fedora 12. (The Nvidia proprietary driver for F12 is from RPMFusion nonfree testing-updates repo.

My 9400 mGPU should support VDPAU as per http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree8...ppendix-a.html

Please let me know what I am doing wrong?

Hi,
I don't know what you're doing wrong...

Could you install vdpauinfo and tell me if it detects vdpau?
"yum -y install vdpauinfo;vdpauinfo"

And could you tell me the result of this command?
"cat /etc/fedora-release;uname -a;rpm -qa | grep -e vdpau -e nvidia -e mplayer | sort"



General information:
I've just updated the RPMs to today's svn. XBMC is now built with its internal Python library. It seems python plugins were not working with the external library provided by Fedora..

Hi Hansvon,

Here3's what the rpm query returns:

Fedora release 12 (Constantine)
Linux rivendell 2.6.31.5-127.fc12.x86_64 #1 SMP Sat Nov 7 21:11:14 EST 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Am going to install vdpauinfo now, but yum wants to install libvdpau as a dependency for vdpauinfo.

I also tried reinstalling mplayer coz when I first upgraded to F12, only mplayer got updated and nVidia drivers changed only after enabling the updates-testing repo. That doesn't work either.

And here is the command used to attempt playback:

mplayer -vo vdpau -vc ffh264vdpau,ffmpeg12vdpau,ffvc1vdpau,ffwmv3vdpau, <filename>

H.264 video file

You're using RPMFusion MPlayer, not "mine". I thought it was supporting vdpau but maybe I mistook?
Anyway, please try to install libvdpau and vdpauinfo. You can also try my rpm...

Hi Hansvon,

Sorry, my bad. I thought yours was the one in RPMFusion

It plays great with vdpauinfo (and hence libvdpau) installed and from the mplayer output seems to be using the ffh264vdpau codec only:

Forced video codec: ffh264vdpau
Opening video decoder: [ffmpeg] FFmpeg's libavcodec codec family
[VD_FFMPEG] XVMC-accelerated MPEG-2.
Selected video codec: [ffh264vdpau] vfm: ffmpeg (FFmpeg H.264 (VDPAU))

Will try your rpm now and post. Guess it should work.

And the vdpau info o/p is as below:

hemanth@rivendell:~/Downloads$ vdpauinfo

OK, great, so RPMFusion misses this dependency, I guess.
I've just noticed the RPMs I've built today now require libvdpau. It seems MPlayer has moved to using the libvdpau wrapper (/usr/lib64/libvdpau.so.1), which itself loads the NVidia libray or another vdpau compatible library (ATI, Intel could start providing one...). Before, MPlayer directly accessed the NVidia library (/usr/lib64/nvidia/libvdpau_nvidia.so). Anyway...

Great thread!
I got a Atom/Ion machine working beautifully with 1080p material under Fedora 11 with this info so I installed Fedora 12 on my HTPC today.
It's a 9400M machine so libvdpau should work (it's installed) but vdpauinfo says
"Failed to open VDPAU backend libvdpau_nvidia.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

I have setup RPM Fusion and Hansvon repositories but I can't find any nvidia drivers
(kmod-nvidia-2.6.31.5-127.fc12.x86_64-190.42-1.fc12.4.x86_64 or xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-190.42-2.fc12.x86_64 or xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs-190.42-2.fc12.x86_64) as listed above.
Only xorg-x11-drv-nv-2.1.15-2 is available and installed.
Something has changed for Fedora 12 since you wrote this, but what?

the nvidia driver is only in rpmfusion-nonfree-updates-testing, so you need to do:

Code:
yum --enablerepo=rpmfusion-nonfree-updates-testing install kmod-nvidia
Then follow these instructions carefully to ensure it doesn't conflict with nouveau:
