So I'm experimenting with it, it seems sound is the biggest problem. I can play 640x480 movies without sound smooth with no glitches. So have been trying different settings for mencoder to decrease the sound taxation of the processor, so far they don't seem to be making a difference. I've tried with the three sampling rates, also have decreased the CBR to 64, but can't play the 640x480 movie. Also haven't found a fullscreen option for 320x240 so far.
I've achieved high quality high performance video playback at 640x480. Script details at http://sumoudou.org/index.php?cmd=%E7%9B%B...the%20Universal
So it seems something has changed, in the process of aptitude upgrading, I cannot play high quality movies again.
Don't know what the reason is, but the movies converted with the above-mentioned approach that I could play satisfactorily, can't be played well now, they lag etc.
It seems there's been some changes in the X scripts or something, since now when you do xrandr -o normal
it doesn't rotate the display back left, and pretends the landscape rotation on the Uni is the normal one. But it isn't, the display IS rotated. You only get it to rotate to its unrotated position via xrandr -o left
which should be wrong however.
Maybe this has something to do with it...
If anyone has a clue to what could have changed and how to get high performance video, please share. It's a great shame, it was working, but can't get it to work again... Actually, maybe it was the hacks that I had installed, related to the yonggun's page that made it work, and now nothing...
EDIT 1: It is titchy-xserver, it seems it is built prerotated, however then it's slower than the xserver-kdrive-fbdev from yonggun's page, so it doesn't allow the playback of high quality video like the kdrive-fbdev xserver does. I've rolled back to xserver-xdrive-fbdev, however have now the stylus issues again, so more fiddlin' required...
