Rough video playback
Throughout the last number of months I have actually had significant troubles playing high-def video clips in Ubuntu. Usually it's 1080p video clips that I have troubles with, yet I do remember having the very same sort of troubles with a 720p video a while back. This takes place on both my laptop computer (with an incorporated Intel video chip) and also my desktop computer (Nvidia Geforce 250GTS). It's weird, due to the fact that I do not assume I've had this trouble in earlier variations of Ubuntu, and also it functions penalty in Windows on the very same equipment (s).
The troubles take place when attempting to play a video that has actually been inscribed to/with "avc1" in an mkv container. I'm not really educated when it involves video codecs and also such, yet from what I've read, avc1 feels like a rather old codec. Just how come I have troubles with that said, when Xvid functions simply great?
Pointers on just how to repair this trouble?
MODIFY: So I've currently attempted every one of the remedies recommended. None actually functioned, although some did decrease the choppiness. I also attempted a 720p video making use of the very same encoding, which was additionally really rough. Could a person clarify to me why this simply will not function, when I can repeat various other 1080p video clips faultlessly?
You can enhance your preformance on the equipment with the Nvidia chip by making it possible for VDPAU, which unloads several of the video providing to your GPU as opposed to the CPU.
Install the plan libvdpau1 and also attempt making use of Mplayer to play your video. You'll require to have current exclusive Nvidia vehicle drivers also.
You might not have any kind of velocity made it possible for in you xorg.conf based around your card.
Goto Terminal and also type :
sudo service gdm stop
(you might be asked to enter your password)
currently type :
(Yes, the resources "X" is required) Now type :
sudo mv xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf
and also become part of GUI setting (with velocity) by :
service gdm start
And you will certainly have all the components and also vehicle drivers you require to have ideal performance with your card. Horay!
Newer X vehicle drivers are usually readily available from the xorg - lawn edgers repository :
However, realize those are simply photos of upstream code, and also not sustained by Ubuntu. They can occasionally have pests and also you could locate it testing to change back to supply Ubuntu things, so just install them if you either really feel really fortunate, or you excel sufficient you can undo any kind of damages they could create.
When I play high - definition web content (720p to 1080p) on my computer system which I acquired in 2006, it battles occasionally. I make use of mplayer for this, and also when it identifies a slow-moving making of the video, it hints me to make use of the adhering to command to play the video :
mplayer -vfm ffmpeg -lavdopts lowres=1:fast:skiploopfilter=all video-1080p.mkv
This is simply sufficient for me, when it comes to my computer, to see 1080p video clips. I wish this could be handy to you.
I'm not exactly sure what all the alternatives mean (have not troubled to read the male web page), yet it feels like it's doing something right. :)
I mounted the most up to date nVidia vehicle drivers from the ubuntu database in addition to the libvdpau1 plan from an exclusive plan archive (nvidia - vdpau).
Whilst I have actually had no good luck with playback in symbol, VLC or mplayer, making use of xbmc functions simply great and also plays 720 and also 1080p flicks quite possibly.
The xmbc plans I am making use of remain in an exclusive plan archive. I made use of the adhering to overview to install xbmc http://wiki.xbmc.org/?title=HOW-TO_install_XBMC_for_Linux_on_Ubuntu_with_a_minimal_installation_step-by-step
