5 You already corrected the vdpau USE flag thing. As for smplayer, you
6 should select "gpu" (it might be named "opengl", depending on the
7 version of mpv) in "General" in the "Video" tab.
9 In "Performance", you can set "Hardware decoding" to "vpau". If that
10 doesn't work, then "vdpau-copy". There's also "cuda" and "cuda-copy".
11 Not sure which works better.
13 All this assumes you use mpv in smplayer, not mplayer. Using mpv is
14 highly recommended.
