Today, I installed VLC to see just how much of Starks' bullshit is factual.

I am not happy.

Today, I saw that Starks had trolled Kokizzzle into downloading VLC.

I am not happy.


(though I did lol a little bit...)

Today, I discovered that an operating system developed by enthusiasts in their free time with a <5% overall market share has inferior support for ordered chapters compared to the most popular operating system which has 90% overall market share.

I am not happy.

Today I decided to download the release that was making Starks not happy and found that it doesn't even use ordered chapters.

I am not happy.

Spoiler for saving space, the chapters:

The releases (2 different series by different groups) in question were extremely troublesome on my end to the extent that they would skip the preludes, proceed straight to the exact points where the OP started, and then the rest of the episodes would have the script off by at least a minute.

Edit: It seems that my mplayer svn tree was a bit messed up at the time but still managed to run through a compile. Unfortunately, the produced binaries had buggy matroska demuxing for some reason. The issue seems to have resolved itself after updating my tree and I am no longer getting seeing the symptoms. Moral: I really need to stop overreacting to false positives.

Today, I read asuki for the first time this week and saw half of #darkhold has trolled starks but I have not.

I am not happy.

E~

Relevant: starks, I send you a copy of the ordered chapters patches from a while back, along with a copy of my build script. It should be relatively easy to compile.

This is one of the most useful pieces of advice I've seen on a forum in some time. Thanks so much, greg-!

I don't know if this has been mentioned yet but there is an experimental build for windows of mplayer that supports segment linking. I wonder if this feature could be implemented in a linux build. you can find the windows build here: http://kovensky.project357.com/

I'm not sure if uau's mplayer git repo supports segment linking, but it does support basic ordered chapters.

Actually, it was designed on Linux iirc, we use exactly the same patches on Ophion's mplayer build (in fact Kovensky wrote the pkgbuild for it,) I think I linked starts the patches a while back. The author of the patch however said (yesterday, in darkhold) that it is better to use uau's repo rather than that one, as the patches there are for ffmpeg but can be cleanly applied to mplayer. uau's is kind of a mess :3

Using uau's version of ordered chapters has the advantage that it resets the decoders between streams, thus being much more compatible. But I don't like the way the window flickers (on windows, uau says it doesn't happen on linux) and the video pauses when switching streams.

As for the Ophion stuff, when me and Emess stop being lazy we should make a Debian repository with .debs of the packages we have in Ophion.

mplayer vdpau issues

So now that I have a brand-new 9500 nVidia card, I compiled mplayer from SVN today to try out vdpau. It works for some h264-encoded subs and fails miserably with others.

I started with Eden of the East episodes from gg and Frostii. Both failed to play, though they worked just fine with libavcodec before. With gg's episode 6, I get:

Code:
VO: [vdpau] 1280x720 => 1280x720 H.264 VDPAU acceleration  [zoom]
X11 error: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter)
X11 error: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
X11 error: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
X11 error: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter)
X11 error: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
X11 error: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter)
X11 error: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter)
[vdpau] Error when calling vdp_presentation_queue_create: The system does not have enough resources to complete the requested operation at this time.
FATAL: Cannot initialize video driver.
Frostii's episode five had the same error.

Totally discouraged, I tried all sorts of method to see what was wrong. Eventually I started playing older subs beginning with Lunar's Bartender release, which is the oldest H.264 encode I have. Many of them play just fine, including recent releases like Live-eviL's Nijuu Mensou and Genji. Any guesses what distinguishes the Eden episodes? I'll mention that I don't get often-reported error that occurs when too high a profile is selected. ("Error 25 at libvo/vo_vdpau.c:992 ")

Of course, I can't have ASS subtitles or screenshots with vdpau since it appears any video filters (-vf) totally interfere with the driver.

At first I thought it was just a lack of compatibility with KDE 4.2 and the desktop compositing model it uses, but this theory was disproven when other H.264 encodes played fine.

Any hints? Should there be another addition to the list of things encoders need to pay attention to when "fansubbing with Linux in mind?"

The mt branch of mplayer git is said to have better vdpau support.

MPlayer SVN-r29301-4.3.3 (freshly compiled)
nVidia driver version 185.19
Geforce 8500GT 512MB (G86)

My mplayer config file looks like that :
Code:
vo=vdpau,xv,
vc=ffh264vdpau,ffh264,
embeddedfonts=yes
ass=yes
sid=0
And [gg]_Eden_of_the_East_-_06_[9CA2FDB0].mkv play just fine (except at the begining a reference frame seem to be missing), you can use ASS with VDPAU.



You look like to be out of video RAM sometimes that come from Compiz, or Xorg, try to stop compiz and start with a "fresh" xorg.

The level limit have all been remove some times ago, the only limit right now is the processor power and the video RAM available. With 512MB you should be able to play 1080p video (like the one done by Thora) without problems with a lowly 8500GT.

EDIT : Just realized that you use KDE can't really helped you much more I am a Gnome user and I don't really want to install KDE, but it's possible that KDE compositing model use too much resource and depending on the number of reference frame in the video the video can't be played.

How do you compute the memory requirements from resolution and ref frames?

Good question, I don't know

My method is the good old "Empirical method". I have encoded an opening with different number of reference frame, from 2 to 16, at 1080p and that has given me the limit of my card (8 with compiz, 16 without)

(RoundUp(Width/16)*16 * RoundUp(Height/16)* 16 * 1.5) * (Refframes + (Bframes > 0) )

Edit: Today I had to repost a formula that is posted in about 5000 places on the internets.

I am not happy.
