Currently mplayer doesn't support va-api, only vdpau. But vdpau doesn't support at all other than h264, and not so well on intel video cards.

There's a fork:

Providing va-api support on mplayer already, which I don't understand why a fork, neither seaparted from the mplayer repo. It could have been developed as a branch, for easier posterior merge...

Any ways, I hope sooner rather than later mplayer starts providing va-api support, to avoid using forks...

Thanks a lot,

  • Severity changed from major to normal

There is an experimental patch to support VAAPI on the deve list ( It still needs some cleanup, but should work.

It would be helpful if you can try it and provide some feedback.
