Software News   Software News : mui-mplayer port from morphos to amigaos4 released
   posted by kas1e on 24-Oct-2011 20:16:06 (18431 reads)
Hi all

We with Deniil, with big help from Fab (of course, and as usuall :) ) , release a first version of mui-mplayer port from morphos. Check os4depot for it (in upload query for now).


screenshot

There is many thinks to say, but in brief:

The advantages over the our current os4 port: newer mplayer code, better structurisation and code itself, mui-gui with all the stuff , better integration of streaming (working over bsdsocket.library directly), no SDL, sound over AHI, rendering over cgx_wpa and all the other pluses about which know only Fab as he author.

The minus now only one: No overlay. Because of it, in full-screenmode you have no scalling (to avoid slowdowns). Overlay will be implemented pretty soon (i hope).

If you want command line : use it from the shell

If you want GUI: run from the icon (tooltype GUI). If you disable that tooltype, then from the icon it will just ask for the file which need to open.

PS: its is _NECESSARY_ to have update3 minimum, if you want to use GUI. Or, you need MUI from update3, which you can copy on older version of OS and it will works as well. Through, better to just have update3, to avoid any possible problems.

So as usuall thanks to Fab for his sources, to Thore who works on MUI, to Deniil who help with porting and to DeadWood for some help as well.

@Fab

Maybe is a problem on gcc4. If you add -mabi=altivec switch the gcc optimize the code to use altivec instructions. it doesn't matter if you are compiling software like mplayer that has asm altivec instructions. it will add specific altivec functions just because you have turned on that switches.
We have seen this with the main mplayer developer debugging the exe produced by gcc4. Maybe there is another switch to turn off the optimizations but enable alitivec abi?

@afxgroup

can't you create two parts in the makefile or two makefiles and compile codecs with altivec optimization and the rest without it? at the end the compiler will link them and that's all, isn't it?

100% cpu loading was caused by some optimisation flag which cause such problems in our current gcc (it was -O4 optimisation flag). Now i build everything with -O2 , and no more 100% cpu loading should be.


that's the reason GCC 2.95.x is still included with MorphOS sdk: current gcc releases create code somewhat "unstable".

As i understand, Afxgorup trying to say, that even if you will just compile "few objects", they will be fully altivec-based, and will not swithcs necessary parts only to altivec. And in end you will have fully altivec based obj, which will crashes on generic cpus. And that is problem of gcc4 can be (if i understand everything right).

What older version of Mplayer works without overlay ?
DVplayer does but I cant find a older version of Mplayer that works on my setup.
Have to put back in my Radeon 9250 to use the older Mplayer.



Quote:
s i know, you not have in radeonhd now overlay support, so, all the other players (like dvplayer and old mplayer) also works for you without overlay. So, can you please test some video, and see, what version faster or slower.

Try to softboot... dont know if it works with coldboot too.

run this and send the text saved in ram: to Kas1e, maybe it will give him some info.

@tommysammy

As mr2 saying that youtube works for him, i think you can have some problems with getvideo or kind.

Just try from the command line directly (from shell), any youtube video, and see if it works. If works, then make the same for browser/getvideo.

The window with format-choice coming from getvideo (not from mplayer), so i assume something wrong here, try to test it deeply (from shell , from other browser, etc, etc). Maybe you just point out on wrong mplayer binary or kind ?

Ok cool :) Soon new version with overlay (which throug will not works on x1000 while hanz will not add overlay to radeonhd driver, but for you even without-overlay all should be fine with 1.8ghz). and bugfix on exit

@kas1e

I tried some FLV vidoes (some video clips from Opeth and Dream Theater) with GetVideo on Sam460+RadeonHD. I noticed that the sound playback is slower than the original on MPlayer. It is like playing at %95 speed... Have you noticed that ?

Nope, but i think it can be because of -04 optimisation. Wait some time for new version, should be fine (we for now with Deniil trying to fix that alignment-overlay crap in the driver itself).

Two problems

- Iconify seems broken if you active it from menu (the icon will not showed on Workbench), instead iconify from the usual button in GUI works ok, plz fix it

- I also note that all videos opened in fullscreen (double click to show it in fullscreen) does not cover the entire screen but only a small part of it, i try adjust looking at the various video's prefs but i can't be able to solve so no real fullscreen here ... maybe this problem is related to the overlay ?

Yeah, notice that as well, but for now we worring about fixing of alignment in overlay. Its happens that p96 driver by some un-luck have some mess inside, and all the hints from fab does not help us. So, we loose with Deniil yesterday whole evening to understand how all of this work. We have some kind of solution, but its a bit suck too.

After alignment will be fixed , then we will fix to works overlay mode with gui. There is also need to spend some time, to understand how all of this done by fab.

Its just how done plain, non-overlay dirver (wpa_cgx). To avoid slowdowns, that driver do not do any "Scaling". But of course, with overlay auto-scaling works, window can be resized and so on.

On AmigaOS 4.1 you can do scaling using CompositeTags() function from graphics.library. It uses the graphics card's GPU and is very fast. I use it for the scaling in CDXLPlay f.e. (source code included):

yes you are right, so we RadeonHD users could also take advantage of accelerated hardware video playback through the GPU without overlay feature because Hans hasn't implemented it in our driver yet, he say there's major priority like 3D/Gallium ! I think it's a beatiful idea, Kas please consider it, thanks
