Video playback is choppy sooo choppy...


Hello,
this disto's playback of videos on the hdd, both onboard, and USB external's. whenever I play a video no matter which video player I use, mpv, vlc, and that xplayer one too, it plays for a few seconds then stops for a few milliseconds, enough to bug the eye balls, causing irritating effects to the brain to the point it causes me to have to post about it.

this does not take place when I am in Slackware current, everything runs smoothly, I can have a few scripts running and watch a movie without the choppiness that is taking place in Mint. I have already added a cache to mpv desktop file to try and see if that would help, but it does not.



what to do?


oh yeah it is the latest and greatest cinnamon mint version, I think thats 19 or is it 18.xxx?

Off hand, I don't have a clue, so I'll ask couple of questions.

Is on a dual-boot Slackware/Mint computer or two different computers?

What are the computer(s) specs, including the graphics card, and what DE/WM are you using on Slackware?

same laptop, same hardware, I also just installed Void Linux and it also does NOT have this issue.

DE/WM main one I am going to is e16, the default is Cinnamon on Mint, Void, and e16 / xfce, and soon to be Cinnamon on Slackware, as soon as I install it in a minute or so.

I am currently slack during this posting.

It does seem to be a Mint problem, as it happens with all the players you've tried, but only on Mint.

It's a very long shot, but if you start a player from the command line, does it throw any helpful error messages to the terminal?

well this explanes this one MPV
Code:
$ mpv "/home/userx/testmovie.mp4"
Playing: /home/userx/testmovie.mp4
 (+) Video --vid=1 (*) (h264 1920x1080 30.000fps)
VO does not support requested hardware decoder, or loading it failed.
VO: [opengl] 1920x1080 yuv420p
V: 00:00:11 / 00:04:15 (4%)


Exiting... (Quit)
xplayer is not talking, it's just givng me a bunch of GTK puek

Code:
  xplayer --debug  "/home/userx/testmovie.mp4"

(xplayer:10190): Gtk-WARNING **: 14:11:32.473: GtkButton does not have a child property called expand

(xplayer:10190): Gtk-WARNING **: 14:11:32.473: GtkButton does not have a child property called fill

(xplayer:10190): Gtk-WARNING **: 14:11:32.473: GtkButton does not have a child property called position
I would assume it is for the same reason, where in Slack before I added that ( I forget the name) lib to support video, I was using opengl for xine. now it works either way in Slack.k

I figured if it is showing video it is working. apparently not. these are just "basic" videos not games where a max fps are needed. I am finding out that Intels on board video chip(s) are not all cracked up to what it should be.

Let me go mess with MPV config file, and see what I can do to fix that.

OK so how do I find out what
Code:
VO does not support requested hardware decoder,
the hardware is requesting for a decoder, because the fallback opengl s not working in Mint. what little I tried so far does not fix it.

and then it starts playing choppily?
clearly it's using software decoding, which your hardware cannot take (at that resolution).

maybe just misconfigured?
that's an old bug report, the situation has likely changed meanwhile.
did you read all of it? there seems to be some good hints in it.
I remember I once had to configure a system to use hardware decoding, and this wiki helped me a lot:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php...o_acceleration
as you can see, basically there's va-api and vdpau and sometimes these need to be configured properly.
this seems to tally with some of the comments in the bug report, e.g. #39.

do your homework: Verification, then Configuration (the wiki i linked).
I remember I had to set some environment variables.
i still have
Code:
export VDPAU_DRIVER=va_gl
in my .xinitrc. not sure i even need it anymore.

don't complain about unsolved bugs in a thread where you barely submitted any useful information, or showed any effort of your own. or at least way too little for someone who's been here 6 years and is proud to be using slackware

sorry for my lacking in wanting and logging every stinking little detail I've done in search of trying to stop this video chip from hitting the brakes every few seconds on the movie I am trying to play.

Actually Slackware is now doing this too. SO now I got two distros out of three that are doing the same, this too is what bugs me, if one distro works VOID Linux, now, (for how long? I have no idea) but nevertheless, if one actually works and the other does not, then what it the one that works doing to make it work that the other one that is not doing so I can use that methoid to cause the one that is not working to work too?

this is not Ndiva where from what I someone is always having issues with it and drivers to get it to work, I've never seen anyone asking for help from using Intel video chip.


If I knew that this HD intel onboard or intergrated into the CPU chip Intel Corporation HD Graphics 5500 (rev 09) chip was going to give me this hassle and not a simple fix, or a needed fix whatsoever. I would have looked for a discrete graphics card laptop to get off EBay instead of this one.

This is not trying to play a data saturated 3D game. This is just playing a simple movie.

as far as players and what have I done, it seems that every player has it own little methoid which is different for each.

this thread is posted under mint, so I don't feel it right to add everything I've been doing in Slack in here and I have been bouncing back and fourth trying to get them both working. That can get a little confusing as to what did I do to which.

then there is the naming conventions for drivers (packaging) don't get me started on that one.

My real complant goes to Intel. and Windows, BILL GATEs ,and Steve Jobs Idologly.

After I've had my coffee, I'll look back into this issue and try to keep a running log of every sight and search and everything I've done in trying to fix this, something that should not even be an issue.

still nope

va_gl
userx@MintyMintMint:
$ mpv test.mp4

How do I even find out what hardware decoder it is requesting so I can try and figure out whats up with that?


I checked all of the other glx kernel drivers and such and they all match up to what void has / is using.

mpv

Code:
userx@MintyMintMint:~
$ sudo mount /dev/sdb7 /mnt
userx@MintyMintMint:~
$ ls /mnt/etc/mpv

userx@MintyMintMint:~
$ ls /etc/mpv

$ ls /mnt/etc/mpv/encoding-profiles.conf
/mnt/etc/mpv/encoding-profiles.conf
userx@MintyMintMint:~
$ ls /mnt/etc/mpv/encoding-profiles.conf /etc/mpv

/etc/mpv:
encoding-profiles.conf  encoding-profiles.conf.old  mpv.conf
userx@MintyMintMint:~
$ sudo cp -v /mnt/etc/mpv/encoding-profiles.conf /etc/mpv
copied over voids mpv conf just cus to see if that would help. nope.\\

let me go dig some more

thanks, I am bouncing back and forth between VOid and Mint at the moment to try and figure out why VOid (seems) to work and why, to try and use that info for the other ones. ie mint, slack

this is void:
Code:
userx@voided.org:~
$ lspci -nnk | grep -A3 VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation HD Graphics 5500 [8086:1616] (rev 09)
	DeviceName: 512
	Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company ZBook 15u G2 Mobile Workstation [103c:2216]
	Kernel driver in use: i915
userx@voided.org:~
$ inxi -Gxx
Graphics:
  Device-1: Intel HD Graphics 5500 
  vendor: Hewlett-Packard ZBook 15u G2 Mobile Workstation 
  driver: i915 v: kernel bus ID: 00:02.0 chip ID: 8086:1616 
  Display: server: X.Org 1.20.3 driver: intel 
  unloaded: modesetting,vesa alternate: fbdev 
  resolution: 1920x1080~60Hz 
  OpenGL: 
  renderer: Mesa DRI Intel HD Graphics 5500 (Broadwell GT2) 
  v: 4.5 Mesa 18.3.2 compat-v: 3.0 direct render: Yes
I would assume it should be the same for all Linux distros, so why is void working and others not? that is the piece I am missing.

the Kernel driver in use: i915 in Mint too I have not checked slack, but I bet it is the same.\


slack

Code:
userx@slackdvdcurr.org:~
