Card(Plugin align=right, name=Video Playback, icon=plugin-video.png, pack=[:CompizPlugins:Compiz Plugins], cat=Utility, hist=[http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/compiz/2007-March/001576.html Announced] on March 5th, 2007 by David Reveman)

The Video Playback plugin gives Compiz direct access to the video texture in a compliant video player application, such as mplayer (with the necessary patch applied). In other words, it enables composited Xv output.

This has the advantage of making the video render much more quickly (ie. with less lag); without this plugin, the video texture would first need to pass through the Xv output, then to Compiz, and then finally be drawn on the screen.


YV12 colorspace

Provides YV12 colorspace support.

Additional resources

mplayer needs to be patched before compiling in order for it to support this plugin's capabilities.
