Tegra 2 / AC100 - standard XV support


On a Toshiba AC100 (Tegra 2 harmony), with lubuntu 12.10 and R16.3 nvidia drivers,
I could play accelerated video using nvgstplayer.
I have to setup gstreamer to use nvxvimagesink.

Even though xv is reported to be present by xvinfo, all programs that try to use XV freeze the X window system. (reported at https://bugs.launchpad.net/ac100/+bug/1178199 )

Is XVideo supported by the nvidia drivers ?

Hi Vlad,

Yes, We are aware of the issue and working on a fix/reimplementation.


Hello again,

Just two small points:

  1. Will the fix be also available for Tegra 2 ? (As I think it’s declared as deprecated…)

  2. Will the xv driver be open sourced (so that in case Tegra 2 is not supported by nvidia, it could be supported by the community) ?
