[Solved] ATI - no video acceleration OpenGL

hello,
i think that my video acceleration doesn't work: mpv and vlc works only with X11, if i set GL it can't show video (only audio).

$ lspci|grep VGA

Re: [Solved] ATI - no video acceleration OpenGL

As of now, there is no way to get hardware video acceleration on these older ATI GPUs. I have the same problem, mine is a Mobility Radeon X1300 (RV515).

The proprietary driver that enabled hardware acceleration on these GPUs was called AMD Catalyst, formerly fglrx. This was abandoned long ago by AMD. A while ago, it was still possible to install this driver on Arch and get it working, but it involved using older versions of the kernel, of X.org, and more headaches like that. And the performance benefit did not outweigh the effort to maintain it and to install it, so it was abandoned.

To get an idea of the performance "benefit", my card supports H.264 hardware accelerated video decoding, but only on resolutions at or lower than 480p. To get such a low return, I'd have to run older and less secure versions of the kernel, and X.org. Not really worth it, IMO.

Thanks for info!

I never installed catalyst, i always used xf86-video-ati. Until a year ago video acceleration worked good, and i also played retrogames with retroarch. Now in unplayable.

I have tried to downgrade kernel (4x) but i get a kernel panic.

Re: [Solved] ATI - no video acceleration OpenGL

than i SOLVED downgrading xf86-video-ati:

sudo pacman -U https://archive.archlinux32.org/packages/x/xf86-video-ati/xf86-video-ati-1:19.1.0-1.1-pentium4.pkg.tar.zst

Now hardware acceleration works good.
