Recently the GL renderer in MPlayer has seen major improvements. Two new sub-options have been added: "force-pbo" and "ati-hack". Using those options, you can boost the rendering performance a lot! Before I wasn't able to use the GL renderer for any HD stuff. Now it performs even better than the "directx" renderer. So please could you make new CPU optimized builds that include the recent improvements?
My commandline is:
MPlayer.exe -vo gl:yuv=2:force-pbo:ati-hack -noslices file.avi
Keep up the good work :-)
