3D Vision with window mode – Nvidia 266.58 – Thanks!

Goole Earth in 3D - with Nvidia 3D VisionOn the forth of January 2011 Nvidia revealed a new Beta driver, which was quite a surprise for me. I’ve been looking for this driver since it was first announced in November 2009. It should bring the capability to support 3D Vision in a windowed mode.

All was fine, beside the playback of AVCHD footage from my Canon HF100 FullHD camcorder. I’ve noticed already some time ago, AVCHD footage doesn’t work with the ‘-fps 50‘ switch anymore. The solution for the problem, so I wrote, was to use ‘-correct-pts‘ instead. Continue reading

CoreAVC 1.9.0 for Linux (howto for Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex 8.10)

I stated here, I won’t touch CoreAVC for Linux anymore, because VDPAU is performing so well, but since so many visitors were attracted by my last short article about CoreAVC 1.9.0, I decided to look a bit closer at it.
I’ve compiled two versions of mplayer and they worked more or less good for me (read below): Continue reading
