So this affects very few people?
mpc-hc works fine with ati, cant figure out why vlc wont play nice, must be a anti-ati thing in vlc camp on windows
MPC-HC also supports WebM with VP8/Vorbis now and has done hardware decoding of h264/vc-1 for years now
Lame VLC, add ATI support or else I have no reason to go back to you, I will be sticking with Media Player Classic Home Cinema.
I love when developers blame sub par code on drivers. If it works with other programs, it will work with yours.
Unrelated to this article but does anyone know if its possible for Media Player Classic HC to support 7.1 playback?
Looking at the audio options, it seems to support up to 18 different channels, but don't hold me to that. I did have a look at the video differences between VLC and MPCHC running avatar in HD, and VLC seemed much darker. I suppose it's personal taste at the end of the day.
Nice to know, VLC is my choice of media player. Shame about ATi.
Actually no, its not. CUDA for the most part is still kinda weak and show minimal performance gains in some applications over OpenCL/GL.
The reason people are siding with ATi is because Fermi is a flop in their opinion, its way too hot and uses way too much power.
Unless you're using the MPE in APP CS5 there's nothing really gained by using nvidia accelerators.
I'm currently using my HD5770 to accelerate the endless amount of OpenGL accelerated applications inside CS5. No issues. No issues in any other application either, MPC-HC manages fine when it comes to using the 'windows drivers' the same drivers which are making it impossible for the VLC guys.
I read a back and forth between an Nvidia guy and Terry Mak' on facebook that ATI are currently fixing the issue.
They broke MPC-HC before too: http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/graphics/2010/01/25/intel-gma-hd-graphics-performance/6 then fixed it later
I love the VLC player but I pledge my allegiance to ATi. Oh well looks like I'll be buying a Nvida card for physx and Cuda. ATi HD 6000 series should bring Radeon completely on par with Nvidia as I'm happy more developers are starting to take advantage of these massive power plants PC gamers have in their rigs.
Nvidia = more than just games.
Surely this only affects users who run vlc on a laptop with Ati dedicated graphics and a weedy cpu:
GPU acceleration would be nice, but not a necessity generally?
VLC is a fantastic media player regardless of the GPU acceleration, which I'm sure will come for more graphics cards in time.. It plays pretty much any file so is very handy to have..
AMD has admitted that it's their drivers fault. http://twitter.com/CatalystMaker/status/16797139455
well I just picked up a netbook using ION so I guess I will be using this after all lol well we will see how well this works.
Well there we are then It'll be fixed in 10.7
Good, 10.6 is the first ever ATi driver I've skipped - ever! Not impressed ATi, but at least I'm not using an nVIDIA card.
