Fix lag with HD video on VLC

This is probably universal, but I'm running Statler ftr...

My computer is old and mkv files caused video lag in VLC.  After many other efforts, I got rid of the lag by going to / Tools / Preferences / Input & Codecs / Codecs ... and set "Skip H.264 in-loop deblocking filter" to "All".

Rather old computers can still do HD just fine! cool


...But I'm ever so squeezable!

Re: Fix lag with HD video on VLC

Does XVideo not work for you?  I find it is usually the best if your drivers support it.

Re: Fix lag with HD video on VLC

Im new to linux and those are really bad news for me

I have been using the hardware acceleration on win 7 whenever I played a hd video and Im pretty sure my laptop cant do 1080p without it sad.

Re: Fix lag with HD video on VLC

In addition to  set "Skip H.264 in-loop deblocking filter" to "All" I also installed libavcodec53. If you are still having issues despite the vlc setting, try installing libavcodec53 as well.

Re: Fix lag with HD video on VLC

VLC players a lot of formats but is not the best at H.264.

For people who are lucky enough to have an nVidia card with VDPAU support, your best bet is installing MPlayer2 with VDPAU support.

For those who don't have a computer with VDPAU support. If you have a desktop, you could just buy an nVidia card - they're pretty cheap.
If that is not an option. MPlayer2 and CoreAVC works pretty well together. I can play 720p H.264 on an Atom N270 with it. There should be guides online to build MPlayer2 with CoreAVC.

@Spoony:  We typically discourage necroposting (posting to threads that have sat idle for over 6 months or so).  However, I'm willing to allow this thread to remain open, since the information in it seems to remain valid.
