I'm attempting to get Boxee running on a 64bit Ubuntu 10.10 installation against an Nvidia Ion chipset.
I have gotten vdpau to work with gnome mplayer fairly well, but boxee doesn't use vdpau.
Strangely, sometimes in Boxee I see the option to enable or disable hardware acceleration, and sometimes the option isn't even present (as in it doesn't show up at all, enabled or disabled or otherwise).
I was hoping to hear a success story from someone else running in this configuration. I'm a bit stumped.
Pressing 'I' during playback of a h264 encoded mkv file shows:
D(Audio: ac3 48000 Hz, 5 Channels, s16) P(aq:99%, kB/s:370)
D(Video: h264, yuv420p, 1280x720 P(vq:82%, dc: ff-h264, MB/s:2.2 ...)
I have tried with both the 260.19.06 and 260.19.12 Nvidia drivers without luck.
Thanks in advance!
