VDPAU-VAAPI backend / Hardware accel on Intel/AMD in flash and other

Hello everyone!
Here is a backend for VDPAU that uses VAAPI for video decoding and GL for everything other.
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/libvdpau-va-gl/

For AMD, you need also https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/xvba-video/

To use it, just add

#!/bin/sh
export VDPAU_DRIVER=va_gl

into /etc/profile.d/vdpau_vaapi.sh and reboot or relogin

So now you can use VDPAU in mplayer2 or flash and it will decode video with VAAPI.

Have fun!

This info belongs to the wiki and not to some random forum post.

If you have the time please update a corresponding articles (Intel/Radeon/VAAPI/Mplayer). Thank you!

Re: VDPAU-VAAPI backend / Hardware accel on Intel/AMD in flash and other

So if a card supports VAAPI but not VDPAU, Flash will not try to accelerate decoding? And this will get Flash to co-operate by being a VDPAU driver that uses as much of your card's VAAPI support as possible?

That's a good idea.

Re: VDPAU-VAAPI backend / Hardware accel on Intel/AMD in flash and other

Holy sh**,

so this will finally make hardware acceleration for AMD APUs (f.e.) in flash possible?! I can't believe this news... are there any further steps I would have to take to accelerate flash videos? Like f.i. I'm thinking about the /etc/adobe/mms.cfg file where you yould, if you were a NVIDIA user, de/activate HW acceleration for Adobe's Flash plugin. And what if I want to keep using my mplayer-vaapi build for playing 1080p videos? Will setting up this driver break that?

I have intel HD3000, so I just installed this thing, added string to profile, added this:
EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=1
OverrideGPUValidation=1
to /etc/adobe/mms.cfg and everything works. For AMD you need to install xvba also.

And what if I want to keep using my mplayer-vaapi build for playing 1080p videos? Will setting up this driver break that?

No, it won't break it. You can even use mplayer2 with VDPAU. Or you can use mplayer2-vaapi.

I believe it was already possible. ati-dri contains VDPAU bindings for r300, r600 and radeonsi, for VAAPI there is a VDPAU backend.
My setup is the following:

packages: ati-dri , libvdpau, libva, libva-vdpau-driver. (all mesa packages in -git version for more formats)
Then in my .pam_environment I use these settings:

VDPAU_DRIVER=r600
LIBVA_DRIVER_NAME=vdpau

Are you refering to this section? I assume you using the open source driver as you have ati-dri (which has xf86-video-ati as a dependency) installed. Is that correct?

Your results indeed look very promising. Nevertheless I am not quite sure if this would work with my AMD E-450 APU which has a built-in HD6320 (which, by all means, is actually a HD 4xxx; I have to use the legacy driver aswell). As far as I know, HW acceleration with those APUs is only possible using the proprietary driver. But correct me if I should be wrong.

Consider yourself corrected smile

With kernel 3.10 and mesa 9.2 (not released yet), you have full VDPAU support on your APU with the open source driver. And note, you don't need the library discussed here for that. The open source driver has direct VDPAU support, this library is needed for drivers that don't (intel and catalyst).

I believe it should be possible. I read somewhere that the architecture of the HD6320 is similar to the HD5430, just without the graphics memory. Try it if you want to know for sure wink

I'm really looking forward to abandonning that fuc**** Catalyst driver, seriously big_smile If I will then have full HW decoding for 1080p and flash videos, there is (at least for me) absolutely no more reason to stick with that proprietary driver.

Is there a date (approximately) known, when kernel 3.10 and mesa 9.2 are being released?

I also have the E-450 APU and with mesa-git from AUR hardware accelleration does indeed work. No need for Catalyst anymore, yay!

Would it be possible to use this with proprietary nvidia drivers while mantaining hw decoding?

...and it stops here, even if i add -vc  ffh264vdpau

adding the quirk: AvoidVA works but without -vc ffh264vdpau, so no hw decoding.

I'm interested in this because of stability problems i have when using real vdpau surfaces.

You don't need it for the proprietary nvidia driver. This driver already has vdpau support.

Thanks for answering, but as i said:

I'm interested in this because of stability problems i have when using real vdpau surfaces.

For stability problems i mean the desktop freezing when switching from fullscreen to window to fullscreen...randomly.

And as far as i know, standard mplayer doesn't support the rendering of the pixmap to a GL surface when using vdpau, nor the flash player does.
Yes, one could usenthe bitmap path by disabling the overlay vdpau surface, but that often produces tearing to me.
There is also mplayer-vaapi that can do VDPAU->opengl but it leaves a little vertical black band on the right side of the video and flash is still left out.

...So i thought that i could use this library to do it in place of the nvidia one.

You have vdpau-va-driver installed, together they form circular dependency and load each other indefinitely. To break the chain, set VDPAU_DRIVER to "nvidia" inside libvdpau-va-gl. Following patch should do the trick:

Re: VDPAU-VAAPI backend / Hardware accel on Intel/AMD in flash and other

Maybe to save some people some time.

With flash 11.2 it seems to work. With flash 11.8 (chromium-pepper-flash) it doesn't. Seems to be a known problem but a quick google search didn't find a solution.

If it doesn't work for you: Make sure (in intel's case) that you have libva and libva-intel-driver installed and not some outdated git version.
Make sure you don't use mplayer-vaapi.

mplayer seems to use only vdpau presentation (and ffh264 instead of ffh264vdpau) by default.

~/.mplayer/config, add:

vo=vdpau
vc=ffmpeg12vdpau,ffwmv3vdpau,ffvc1vdpau,ffh264vdpau,ffodivxvdpau,

(I think comma at the end means that it will try others if none of them apply)
Edit: ffodivxvdpau is not supported by Intel I think, so maybe remove that from the list

qvdpautest-git doesn't work, basically every test fails and it segfaults.

Thank you very much, i'll try.
-EDIT
I patched it, but still mplayer stops at

libva info: Found init function __vaDriverInit_0_33

and after ctrl-c:

MPlayer interrupted by signal 2 in module: preinit_libvo

xbmc freezes as well:

# VDPAU_DRIVER=va_gl xbmc
libpng warning: iCCP: known incorrect sRGB profile
[VS] Software VDPAU backend library initialized
libva info: VA-API version 0.34.0
libva info: va_getDriverName() returns 0

Hmm, libvdpau loads driver only once, then caches it. This will force it to load each time:

diff -ur libvdpau-0.6/src/vdpau_wrapper.c libvdpau-0.6-new/src/vdpau_wrapper.c

         if (status != VDP_STATUS_OK) {

Note: it's for libvdpau this time, not libvdpau-va-gl. And I don't know if it will cause handle leaks.

It looks like it does right thing on my system and stops with "can't find libvdpau_nvidia.so" error. But I don't have an nVidia adapter to actually test it.

Sorry to disappoint you, but I don't have plans to add VDPAU backend support to libvdpau-va-gl. At least in observable future. There are too many more crucial stuff to implement. And I still can't make myself to implement them.

I think this would result in duplicating a lot of libvdpau. First libvdpau loads libvdpau_vd_gl,  then vd_gl loads the requested vdpau driver and uses it or gl if something is not supported. A fork of libvdpau might be better in this case I guess.

There's no video decoding unit on the 3150 (it's basically a GMA950 aka crap), all you have is software decoding. You should be able to play 720p with xv though. This means no flash, just dedicated players (mplayer, vlc, ...).

I have intel HD3000, so I just installed this thing, added string to profile, added this:

to /etc/adobe/mms.cfg and everything works. For AMD you need to install xvba also.

Awesome, I can now again play fullscreen youtube videos on my Core i3 thanks to this! (It worked fine two years ago and then started being jerky, don’t know why…)
