after Enhancer 2.2 upgrade, Emotion Locks up Playing MP4 Video
Just popping in

See User information
I upgraded my X5K from Enhancer 1.5 to 2.2 (that is a whole other story that I may delve into later but thankful I did seem to get it installed with someone's help here at Amigans.

Now Emotion that played my DVD rips of SD quality movies fails me. I get some odd Radeon error and then can't close out the Emotion window.

Please see this video for what I experience.

Any tips for me?

Thanks

TJ

*** Note... MPlayer plays said video fine. Just Emotion and Enhancer 2.2 after upgrading seem to not get along for MP4. AVI it seems OK and no Guru under Emotion but MP4 boom!

Same exact situation here with my X1000.

If you have a Radeon SI card and a Radeon SI drive version lower than V 5.x you will need to remove or rename the video hardware acceleration library . libs/va.library .

@Spectre660 is right.

It seems that va.library does not know if the installed graphics card can play hardware accelerated video or not.

If it is installed, Emotion tries to use it and fails with your 7750HD.

That’s way check for graphic card name in mplayer, as can’t reliably know if video composition worked.

2nd question, so is there a new version v5 now available? Is this part of some additional package one needs to buy?

Figured the Enhancer 2.2 would have had all of this but it appears not the case.

I would guess there is some benefits to using new v5 is available?

Thx

No benefits at the moment buying the V5 (except from supporting Hans of course).

VA decoding doesn't work well : you won't be able to play video higher than 720p. And you will loose warm reboot.

Best option (the one I chose) : go for a Radeon RX card.

I am planing on upgrading my Radeon HD7750 to a RX550 so cool, that is my plan.

I take it I can then rename my va.library back to what it was by using a RX550?

Thanks! I did previously test out the newer driver and video acceleration library with my R9 270 card but found no improvement in video playback (still no better than 720p playback on my X1000) and also lost warm rebooting (doh!) so I reverted to the earlier driver. Now I will also rename or remove the video acceleration library to restore functionality to Emotion.

I am not sure if a player should know all Hardware instead of a library which only works on a fixed hardware. In my mind, the player should be as hardware independent as possible for don´t needing to update for every new driver version which stops using the hardware.

... only my opinion, maybe devs have a different point of view.

@mbrantley: i have a RadeonHD 7750 in my x1000 and also use an older driver. Warmstart ist important for me because OS4 needs some restarts over the day. When i play around with new or old software i have to warmstart every minute, so cold start is not an option ;)


@AmigaSociety: With your X5000 i would go for a RX550 GFX Card, so you have all features and can rename back the va.library.

I agree with that, there is no way for program to know about new graphic cards, that does or does not support something, ideally the driver should know what it supports, I think.

This way Mplayer fail to like R9 and RX cards, simply because it looks for “HD”.

Checking if something has or has not composition for example is useless, because a driver can support hw ARGB composition, but not support hw YUV422 composition. So you can get false positives on that.

Do a test YUV composite with the "hardware only" flag set. It'll fail with hardware/drivers that don't support it.

EDIT: Make sure the test composite operation is to a bitmap that's on the target graphics card (e.g., the screen bitmap, or a bitmap that you've locked to the right graphics card).

@AmigaSociety

Could you log this problem to the A-EON bug tracker? We do want it to fail gracefully if the hardware doesn't support it. That'll tell you whether YUV compositing is supported independently of ARGB.

Is there a link for end-users to file bugs with AmigaKit?

I have never done such a thing with them.
