I noticed there was an option to use hqscaling with VDPAU, it can be a number between 1 and 9, however no matter what I do I only have support for the first level of hqscaling.
I have a GTX 650 Ti Boost.
Running Gentoo Linux x86_64, kernel 3.10.17
I’m actually confused on whether or not nvidia-drivers contains vdpau within itself or not, during the setup it said in future releases it will be separate and to get libvdpau from freedesktop.org. I don’t know if this is actually doing anything or not, but I have tried both compiling libvdpau-0.7 and installing from repos.
I have tried with the installed nvidia-drivers from gentoo repos, and manually with it straight from nvidia’s site. I looked pretty hard for vdpau options or something to give me any options at all for it but couldn’t find it, I tried running it with -e too (``expert’’ flag).
When I compiled libvdpau I looked for options in ./configure --help but didn’t see any.
No matter what I don’t have support for it. Here’s the specific output of vdpauinfo:
HIGH QUALITY SCALING - L1 y HIGH QUALITY SCALING - L2 - HIGH QUALITY SCALING - L3 - HIGH QUALITY SCALING - L4 - HIGH QUALITY SCALING - L5 - HIGH QUALITY SCALING - L6 - HIGH QUALITY SCALING - L7 - HIGH QUALITY SCALING - L8 - HIGH QUALITY SCALING - L9 -
Here’s a full output of vdpauinfo:
If I try to play a video through mpv, mplayer, mplayer2, etc. with vdpau hqscaling option higher than 1 I get this:
[vo/vdpau] Your hardware or VDPAU library does not support requested hqscaling.
Here is the output of nvidia-bug-report.sh. (Sorry I couldn’t upload it to pastebin, it’s almost 1MB.)
Please help me figure out how to enable hqscaling. I’ve googled and found nothing, can’t find any documentation.
