OK, I just installed the new version to try on my Octane at home.

First, the machine in question is a R10k 250mhz, 1MB L2 (one of these days I'll go to a R12k 300, or better still dual), SI + TRAM, 640megs of ram, and a fast Seagate disks (sustains 17megs a second on reads). All tests are done on a 1280x1024 display, with the video unscaled. Unless otherwise noted, I am, of course, using -vo sgi.

All of the videos I tried came out looking rather pink. Now, some SGI demos, and the RSS screen savers mange to show textures of all colors, so I don't think I have a faulty TRAM. Interestingly, if I use -vo gl instead of -vo sgi, the files come out blue.

Second, one video file doesn't fill the window with the new version, even though it works on linux.

Third, from watching gr_osview, the GFX bar at the bottom of the window tends to be up to 80% high, approximately. Some files have almost no CPU usage, some have very high CPU useage. All files drop a lot of frames. All files are decoded via ffmpeg, mostly using MPEG4 or H263+.

With instructions, I can aquire more data for people to use for debugging. I can provide the files as well, though I'd have to burn CDs and go somewhere faster to upload them.

I'd be more jealous if he ended up getting it "downgraded" to a IR4. If I wanted XFree, I'd use Linux or one of the other free OSs Xfree runs on.

Now, to be able to buy PCI-X ATI graphics cards (which I believe is what UltimateVision uses) would be nice.

I believe they did. The Ultimate vision turned out to be somewhat less than ultimate, n'est-ce pas, mr squeen ? :-)

Well, remember the saying about makeup on a pig, don't you?
No, not the one about Margaret Thatcher, the other saying :wink:

CPU usage is always under 90%,, about 45% on each CPU (max is 200%).
The defaults are nicer to look at (e.g. blacker blacks) than the -vo sgi:pixeltex command line option, but that latter is a smidgen faster. Both are very watchable even at 1920x1200 full screen.

impressive :-)

I'll give it a try on the UltimaVision tomorrow. Let me know what else I should try.

cool, thanks. As vo_sgi doesn't know about UltimateVision it will default to :softcs:drawpixels there. First thing to test is :textures instead of drawpixels. SGIS_pixel_texture should be supported too I suppose, so give :pixeltex a go. For the sake of completeness, test :colormatrix too, please :-)

What "OpenGL renderer string:" does glxinfo report on UltimateVision? Would be needed to include proper defaults for it in future vo_sgi updates.

And just out of curiosity: could you run a little codec only benchmark with the WC3 video on both of those machines?

Code:
mplayer -vo null -nosound -quiet -benchmark WarIII_Trailer1024.avi


will just decode the video as fast as it can (on one CPU) and print out a summary at the end including the total time it needed. Just curious on what codec performance can be expected on the fastest SGIs on the block ;-)
On a side note: you still owe me a seti@home time of one of the r16k-800s ;-)

hmm, thats unexpected. MGRAS/4MB is one of the better tested platforms. Does your ~/.mplayer/config contain anything that could trigger misbehavior? Are the colors ok if you choose :drawpixles instead of textures? Try toggling between :rgb and :rgba and also test :pixeltex and :colormatrix..

We're going to a 2 pipe/ 10 channel IR3 once the lab gets rewired for another 220V line (the rack and graphics brick is here!). However, using Performer for our sim indicates at 1920x1600 we might be fill limited. Something IR4 is supposed to be 70% faster at doing, so we may have to upgrade to make our frame rate requirements. It needs to be said that the support we got from SGI on this was staggeringly AWESOME.

UltimateVision (and XFree86/SGI) was a disappointment in terms of stability and access to the full set of graphics features (full scene anti-aliasing + overlays + stereo). Really too bad since having many small/inexpensive graphics pipes under IRIX sure would be a nice option (along with OpenGL 1.4 features). We'll see how the IR3 does. In a better world there is an SGI with 1GHz R18K CPUs, IR5 graphics running IRIX7 and 6dwm.

Looks great, BUT as per usual UltimateVision, it's flakey in that movement of the mouse into the window causes the screen to blank and it to hang it. Fullscreen is therefore trouble, unless I send it to another display/pipe (which works fine).

mplayer -vo sgi:colormatrix WarIII_Trailer1024.avi is horrendously choppy with gray blacks. Yuck.

Lastly, if you'll nekoware seti@home - I'll put it on the Onyx4 and give it a whirl.

First, I should clarify that blues are present, but not greens. I'm pretty sure that other programs that use textures show greens.

From RSS (the screen saver set), the HufoTunnel program seems to generally show up without any greens, but the HufoSmoke program certainly looks like it is using billboard textures, and it shows greens just fine. Lattice also looks pretty darn much like it is textured and it shows greens. Helios as well.

One of these days I could resurrect some code of my that does textured drawing, but at the moment it is windows only (though since it uses glut and no windows features other than threading, it should be easy to fix).

My ~/.mplayer/config file has a single comment. :drawpixels shows the colors correctly, and doesn't make a noticable drop in performance. :rgba always shows up looking even worse than :rgb. :rgb doesn't help, but it doesn't hurt. :colormatrix doesn't help. :pixeltex crashes the machine.

I'm finding the entire thing to be rather distressing. If I have a bad TRAM, I won't be able to afford to replace it. Worse, I don't know that I could replace it without ruining the entire graphics board (my apartment has terrible dust problems despite constant vacuuming and dusting. I clean the Octanes vents, and a day later you can't tell I did anything).

ok, 46.722s.. thats ~74 frames per second. The r12k-300 did ~50fps (69.048s). So it didn't scale quite as linear as i would have hoped. I suppose its the aging Octane architecture shining through here..

wow, 142fps, now thats not bad at all! Almost twice as fast as the 600MHz Octane :-)

Thanks. So overall textures:softcs gives the best result just like on odyssey, right? I'll add defaults for it then.

Lastly, if you'll nekoware seti@home - I'll put it on the Onyx4 and give it a whirl.

well, the 3.08 client i used to time the other machines is not open source and the sgi binary was hand optimized quite aggressively by sgi iirc. So even if i could do my own build the results would likely not be comparable. The new seti boinc client that currently is in beta testing is open source and i've planned to give it a go at some point but again, the results would likely not be comparable. Ah well, never mind. Kind of off topic here anyway :-)

if you happen to have some of the old irix graphics demos installed, have a look at texcube or distord. Those are generally quite good indicators for TRAM problems..

Ouch. Did it really crash the whole machine or "just" Xsgi? :pixeltex is very good at crashing Xsgi on my 1MB TRAM indigo2 (see the warning in the mplayer.conf) but was stable so far on dexters 4MB machine..

I don't have any of the graphics demos installed. They didn't come on the machine, nor do they appear anywhere on my .20f CDs.

I think it was Xsgi, because otherwise it rebooted way too quickly.

Do the Octane SI+TRAMS always have 4 megs? Also, it is an SI card, but an SE TRAM.

I've seen lines like this at the bottom of glxinfo on O2 as well, what they hell are they? Ar they usable?

I just wanted to thank you all who have done such a good job optimizing mplayer - the new version pre5 runs great on my o2 (400mhz 1Gb). I am able to scale my .bin file kvcds to any size and output to a television via the AV card. This was not possible until now.

Really great work. Thanks again.
