This evening i tried playing using VLC (don't have xbmc re-set up on it yet) Bon Cop, Bad cop 1080p version on my HTPC. Unfortunately it didn't work. The audio was played back just fine however the video was not showing up. I thought VLC had hardware acceleration on it or is it not that great and xbmc may run with my cpu and gpu better then vlc? Should i turn off cool and quiet (seems to drop down the CPUs a lot to save power/cuts their multi in half most the time) or do i need a dedicated gpu to get 1080p working on this thing? Overclocking the cpu isnt really an option as the most i can push it is from 1.9 to 2.0 as the motherboard or cpu wont go further then that (no NB voltage control and can only push cpu vcore to 1.25 which does nothing anyways)
yes disable everything.
try cccp as well. smplayer, zoomplayer.
then if no workie give coreavc a try. good solution for folks who don't want to upgrade their hardware, although id get a 5 series or gt220 or so in there asap!
but then again the cpu is kinda limited. even if it was maybe 2.5 you could still have issues.
