Have a system that previously had F9 and F10 on it, with video hardware:
Display controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS/GME, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)
xorg.conf is using
F9 and F10 would pass MPEG to the video card for accelerated decoding and playback and it worked just great in VLC, MPLAYER, etc.
F11 installed (fresh install, not upgrade) and the accelerated path seems to be gone. CPU utilization goes very high when playing back any MPEG video.
Additionally, the following information is observed coming out of MPLAYER:
MPEG-ES file format detected.
VIDEO: MPEG2 1920x1080 (aspect 1) 59.940 fps 15000.0 kbps (1875.0 kbyte/s)
Opening video decoder: [mpegpes] MPEG 1/2 Video passthrough
VDec: vo config request - 1920 x 1080 (preferred colorspace: Mpeg PES)
Could not find matching colorspace - retrying with -vf scale...
Opening video filter: [scale]
The selected video_out device is incompatible with this codec.
Try appending the scale filter to your filter list,
e.g. -vf spp,scale instead of -vf spp.
VDecoder init failed
It looks to me like the video driver is being queried whether it supports Mpeg PES colorspace, and the answer seems to be no, so then it falls back to software decoding.
But my hardware hasn't changed...
Intel driver broken?
Anyone else seeing this?
