• MPV (hardware acceleration)


    Hi all. How to enable hwdec in mpv player. I mean, which packages and libraries need to be installed to enable hardware acceleration in mpv. Watch how the mpv eats the processor resources without accelerating, it’s tough.

  • @Sabur said in MPV (hardware acceleration):

    hwdec

    run mpv with the --hwdec=‘method’ option.

    To make this persistent, add the line hwdec=method to your configuration file (mpv.conf)

    hwdec=auto-copy
    hwdec-codecs=all

  • I tried this combination, dos’t work, the program is still used by software video processing. Don’t know, what’s wrong.

  • mpv --hwdec-codecs=h264 scoobydoo.mp4

    PS btw, on centos was installed gnome-player, and in preferences pick up hwdec=vdpau and all files automatic playing with hwdec and processor using 2-3%. I wanna the same effect on antergos.

    gnome-player

    gnome-mplayer? or totem?

    If you adding this to your config you can not add another option to the command itself as they may disturb each other…

    If i put the two option into my ~/.config/mpv/mpv.config:

    mpv many.mkv                                                                                         
    Playing: many.mkv
     (+) Video --vid=1 (*) (h264 720x436 25.000fps)
     (+) Audio --aid=1 --alang=ger (*) 'Stereo' (aac 2ch 48000Hz)

    gnome-mplayer

  • The problem is solved. For Intel card use vaapi or auto. Nvidia requires vdpau. There must be only one configuration file mpv.conf and everything works fine=)
    Thx guys for participation in the discussion.

  • hey how do you no about my schizophrenia ???

    It was only dr. jekyll involved here :jack_o_lantern:
