Nvidia Vdpau Team PPA

PPA description

This PPA contains updated mplayer/smplayer builds geared towards use with Nvidia's VDPAU hardware accelerated playback of Mpeg2/VC1/WMV3/H.264.

Turn off Post-Processing and multithreading.



Xine-vdpau is a replacement for Xine which contains vdpau support. Most of the frontends for Xine should use the vdpau driver and codecs automatically, but Totem-Xine needs a bit of a push. To use with Totem-Xine, go to ~/.config/totem and open xine_config. change #video.driver:auto to video.driver:vdpau.

Note that Xine-vdpau is based on libxine 1.1.16 as it was approximately in December of 2008.


The 256 series is currently the official stable release.
