#7972 closed defect (invalid)

"VDPAU" video output option should be renamed and redscribed in the UI.

A UI fix is needed to rename the "VDPAU" option in TV Playback settings to something like "Hardware Accelerated". The option now includes hardware acceleration on OS X as well as Linux. The description should identify which platforms the acceleration works on.

VDPAU is not just about hardware acceleration.

comment:2 Changed 11 years ago by anonymous

The point was that the output method called VDPAU *is not* VDPAU, but a generic video output using what ever acceleration is available on the platform being used. ie, selecting VDPAU on the OS X port does not fail, but uses the OS X video acceleration output. It's only VDPAU on Linux, and calling it VDPAU as the name of the video output option is confusing to the user.

Read your logs. Using VDPAU on OS X *does* fail, we're just nice and work around user error. If you would like to discuss this, please take it to the mailing lists.

(In [23420]) Platform dependant VideoDisplayProfile? options.

We now build the list of supported decoders, renderers and associated options from the decoder and video output classes at run time. Any unsupported options are ignored when building the profile list from the database entries.

The net result is that the user is only presented with options that have been compiled in and the playback code will not try to initialise renderers that are unavailable. As before, final selection and validation of decoder/renderer support is completed as needed (e.g. XvMC support for MPEG2..)

Closes #7967, Refs #7972.
