<pre wrap="">Can you recommend a media player that is able to use OpenGL? I've tried
mplayer but even on a relatively fast cpu it can't playback the video fast
enough (720p content). Unless I'm missing some magic switch that's buried
deep within the man page :)
I'm afraid there's no magic switch :P You can give VLC a shot but it
never worked for me. Unfortunately, HD video and Linux still don't play
That's not my experience. I've tested most of the possible
combinations: Intel, ATI+fglrx, <br>
ATI+Radeon and closed-source NVidia. Only Intel has the tearing issue.
All the others play <br>
video, including HD-Video, perfectly. BTW, my MediaPC has a cheap dual
core Intel Core 2 @1.8 GHz <br>
and a $30 NVidia graphics card. It has no problems playing H.264 720p.
The above is using XV, I don't use <br>
the OpenGL overlay as it had some issues. <br>
