Somewhere in your menu's you should find an application called "Ubntu AMD Catalyst Installer" .. have you found that and run it yet ?

This was not on the menu until this morning. However when I access it and press OK nothing happens !

Before trying that .. is theree an option in your current Catalyst Control Centre to turn on "Hardware Accelerated video decoding" or similar ?

Have you set VLC to use hardware acceleration ?

Hi,

No option in Catalyst Control Centre.

Accelarated GPU in VLC selected already..

However symptoms are the same using SMplayer, built in media player and VLC !!

When using Openshot symptoms become increased.

I have a feeling we've tried this before, but what happens if you run:
Code: [Select]
sudo aticonfig --initial -f
?

OK, seems your APU isn't supported in the 13.4 drivers .. but it is in >= 13.6 (beta) drivers.

So let's install the 13.11 beta drivers from ATI.....

Enter commands below EXACTLY as typed .. capital letters where used ;)

Open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install build-essential cdbs fakeroot dh-make debhelper debconf libstdc++6 dkms libqtgui4 wget execstack libelfg0 dh-modaliases ia32-libs-multiarch lib32gcc1 
(to install some build/dependencies)

Now run
Code: [Select]
mkdir ~/Desktop/catalyst13.11-temporary
then download this file:
http://www2.ati.com/drivers/beta/amd-catalyst-13.11-beta-v9.4-linux-x86.x86_64.run.zip
and put it in the catalyst13.11-temporary diectory that's now on your desktop.

Now back in a the terminal run:
Code: [Select]
cd ~/Desktop/catalyst13.11-temporary
then
Code: [Select]
unzip amd-catalyst-13.11-beta-v9.4-linux-x86.x86_64.run.zip
then
Code: [Select]
sudo sh *.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/raring

Hopefully that will have built the installation packages.

DO NOT install them yet (there's some stuff left to do first) .. after completing the above, just post the output from:
Code: [Select]
ls -a ~/Desktop/catalyst13.11-temporary



Can you also go back to the open source drivers (in Addition Drivers), reboot, and post the output from:
Code: [Select]
lsudo lshw -C display

My apologies .. dunno what happened there, a copy/paste seems to ahve picked up some spurious entries.

First command fixed above .. so try again :)
