Subject: [gentoo-user] Questions about optimal mplayer settings
Date: Tue, 18 Dec 2012 23:21:32
1 1) In the past couple of days I finally figured out what I was doing
2 wrong with hardware acceleration (causing lack thereof) with an onboard
3 Intel GPU in my HTPC machine. I've applied the same fix to my desktop.
4 mplayer now has 5 video output modes that actually show a picture...
6 xv X11/Xv
7 gl_nosw OpenGL no software rendering
8 x11 X11 ( XImage/Shm )
9 gl OpenGL
10 gl2 X11 (OpenGL) - multiple textures version
12 Which one has the best playback ability? Is there a test program or a
13 "torture test" video file I can use for testing?
16 2) When I start up mplayer, the diagnostics include...
17 "MMX2 supported but disabled"
19 There is no "mmx2" in the USE flags or in /proc/cpuinfo
21 vendor_id : GenuineIntel
22 cpu family : 6
23 model : 15
24 model name : Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E4600 @ 2.40GHz
25 stepping : 13

30 est tm2 ssse3 cx16 xtpr pdcm lahf_lm dtherm
32 ...and I have "-march=native" in my CFLAGS. Any explanations?
