Video depth

I have a short question for you: It's possible to have a 32 bit resolution on linux? The maximum for me is 24 bit but sometimes, specially in videos, image lost quality an sometimes it appears made linke squares....

I have an ATI radeon X700 mobility  PCI-E with last ati drivers.

Thx a lot,
Riccardo.

Re: Video depth

What's called 32bit on windows is 24bit actually

Are you sure, probably are my eyes but under microsoft windows colours are more "bright" and images are more defined... sad

Re: Video depth

In videos maybe it is the codec? I have no idea. But most of mine are the same in the same setup. For a while those "not free" DVDs played directly and seemed slightly less bright and more pixilated than when PowerDVD played them. Then an update to the codecs something like 6 months ago improved my experience alot.      Everywhere else I haven't noticed any real differences. I am pretty sure Stalwart is right as well about the 24 as that is what is said in xorg when you configure it.

Re: Video depth

What Stalwart said is correct. It's 8 bits for each color channel and an alpha channel. So technically, it's 24 bit color even for 32 bit.
