Hi

I use i5 Intel + nvidia 1GB + 8GB ram and I realized, when play 4K video (by Mplayer) is unwatchable - I have only few FPS (even my screen size is only 1600x900, so 1GB Nvidia should manage). In compare my Galaxy S5 play 4K video smoothly on Full HD screen...

I use ~amd64 Gentoo with the newest driver.

Code:
# cat /proc/mtrr
reg00: base=0x000000000 (    0MB), size= 8192MB, count=1: write-back
reg01: base=0x200000000 ( 8192MB), size= 1024MB, count=1: write-back

Hello,

Did you try to use vo=vdpau with mplayer? Are you using any frontend (smplayer for example)?
What format is this 4k video in? H.264?

Normally (depending on the video card) your hardware should be more than capable of decoding 4k resolutions when the GPU is used, but decoding in CPU alone can be quite taxing.

Xywa,

Code:
VIDEO_CARDS="nvidia intel"
thats the warning sign for an Optimus laptop.
Why do you think the nVidia card is in use?

I can use pure Nvidia and Nvidia by Bumblebee - the same. Intel (with -vaapi) was much better for me, but Mplayer2 is dead project now and there is still no suport Maplayer with -vaapi in Gentoo. I was trying to change Nvidia X server settings, but still the same. Even Full HD in 60fps play terrible, freeze, lost audio sync. Dargon Plaer or VLC are even worst.

Maybe my hardware is too old? I have Intel Core-TM-_i5-2450M_CPU_@_2.50GH + Nvidia + NVIDIA Corporation [GeForce GT 630M] 1GB.

Xywa,

The hardware design prevents you using "pure nVidia" as the nVidia graphics has no connection to the display surface.
When nVidia is in use for rendering the image, the intel graphics is still used to update the display.
Updating the display is a trivial task for any GPU, so we can rule that out.

Your hardware is more that capable of HD graphics rendering. I would be surprised if it could not do 4k too.

What format is your 4k video in and why do you think the nVidia GPU is doing the rendering?

Can we see your xorg.conf please?

Xywa,

xorg.conf looks good. You have a set of custom EDID data. That should be visible in /var/log/Xorg.0.log.
Can you pastebin that file after you have attempted to play the video please.

Xywa,

/var/log/Xorg.0.log:
[    42.535] (II) NVIDIA(0): NVIDIA GPU GeForce GT 630M (GF108) at PCI:1:0:0 (GPU-0)


Looking up a GT 630M, the nVidia site says
Code:
Display Support:
Maximum Digital Resolution Up to 2560x1600
Maximum VGA Resolution Up to 2048x1536

Your hardware does not support 4k.

This probably means that the GPU cannot decode it as it won't fit in the pixel buffer, so it all falls back on the CPU to decode and downsample to something that the GPU can use.
The CPU can't do it in real itime ....

How long does it take to transcode to a lower resolution?
I suspect that at 2560x1600 or less, the GPU will do the decoding.as you would expect.

I have not used mplayer for a while now so this might be outdated, but from the output, you are using vdpau video output, and still using the software based codec (ffh264). In the old days you need to specify vc=ffh264vdpau to use the vdpau codec. Not sure if it is more automatic now, I guess you can try it anyway. But you might still run into the resolution limit NeddySeagoon was talking about.

Many thanks lads! This did the trick -> vc=ffh264vdpau

4K is to big for this vdpau codec so mplayer cannot run with this codec, but e.g. HD movies with 60fps FINALLY I can play smoothly (as I could not before, only 30fps were fine).
:P 8) 8) 8) 8) :P :P :P

This is my ~/.mplayer/config file:
Code:
##################
# video settings #
##################

# Specify default video driver (see -vo help for a list).
vo=vdpau


############
# Profiles #
############

# The options declared as part of profiles override global default settings,
# but only take effect when the profile is active.

[vo.vdpau]
vc=ffmpeg12vdpau,ffwmv3vdpau,ffvc1vdpau,ffh264vdpau,ffodivxvdpau,
# Most video filters do not work with vdpau.
vf-clr=yes

You do know mplayer has been superseded by mpv, right?

No? What is mpv? I am old fashion Gentoo user (10 years now ) so I am not clever with any news as longs as things works fine.
