Porteus 5 + Nvidia official driver = no hardware acceleration on Mpv

Post#1 by fulalas » 16 Jul 2019, 20:39

Can anyone run Mpv with hardware acceleration?

Code: Select all

mpv --player-operation-mode=pseudo-gui --hwdec=vdpau [FILE]
I'm facing the following error (need to call Mpv from terminal):

Code: Select all

libva info: Trying to open /usr/lib64/dri/nvidia_drv_video.so
libva error: /usr/lib64/dri/nvidia_drv_video.so has no function __vaDriverInit_1_0
libva info: va_openDriver() returns -1

I found out that we need to export a specific system variable in order to make VDPAU work with Nvidia official driver:

Code: Select all

export VDPAU_DRIVER="nvidia"
So now the challenge is to enable VDPAU on Nouveau (i.e. Mesa driver for Nvidia cards). First we have to export this:

Code: Select all

export VDPAU_DRIVER="nouveau"
You can download vdpauinfo to check if you have any luck. I'm seeing this on a Geforce 650Ti using Nouveau:

Code: Select all

Also, after exporting VDPAU_DRIVER="nvidia" mpv seems to work with --hwdec=vdpau:

mpv: /usr/lib64/libOpenCL.so.1: no version information available (required by /usr/lib64/libavutil.so.55)
mpv: /usr/lib64/libOpenCL.so.1: no version information available (required by /usr/lib64/libavfilter.so.6)
guest@porteus:/$ 
System Porteus 5.0rc1, but not the official version, an older one with even older kernel.
Cheers!

Porteus 5 + Nvidia official driver = no hardware acceleration on Mpv

Post#4 by fulalas » 17 Jul 2019, 18:48

@Rava, Nvidia official drivers are working nice, as I said. The problem is when using Nouveau.

I am on Porteus 5 rc1 with default kernel 5.1.5 and using Nvidia 430.14 module from dl.porteus.org
after exporting VDPAU_DRIVER=nvidia seems to have some supported codecs :

Post#6 by fulalas » 19 Jul 2019, 20:25

@chromer, have you tried to open a terminal instance, exporting nvidia vdpau variable (export VDPAU_DRIVER="nvidia"), then calling mpv (mpv --player-operation-mode=pseudo-gui --hwdec=vdpau [FILE])? It's very important that you export the variable and call mpv in the same terminal instance. :)
