For all of you using HD capture cards, what do you use for playback.
I keep thinking that my system will be fast enough to playback 1080i
video, but even when I have a file size small enough to fit into RAM,
I get video/audio sync issues, frame loss, and jitter. Here are some
sample files: if you don't have any:
CPU: Quad-Core 2.40Ghz
GPU: nVidia Corporation G72 [GeForce 7300 SE] (rev a1)
GPU Driver Version: 177.82
I am also having issues with GeForce 7200 on an Athlon 3000+ with
512MB RAM with OTA.
mplayer -vo xvmc errors out on my system, so I think I either have one
of the Nvidia unsupported cards, or a misconfigured xorg.conf.
Please also provide "extra settings" that you pass to mplayer/myth to
get good playback.
