Just a quick reply, I'm 1-3 minor revs off most of your package list, in some cases just a sub rev but the funny thing is that the Elysium sample has the following test right under it on the download page "*NOTE* This file is encoded using x265 and will require a player such as MPC-BE to play them, It will not work in VLC", probably meant for older versions as the v3.0.8 on mine runs it. Anyway I get the same 20-50% core loads as you with vlc, no dropped frames(which only happens on 4kx60 clips from 4kmedia.org). On mpv running hardware acceleration core loads are mostly low single digits with spikes up to 12% using vaapi-copy. Looks/sounds better in mpv as well but it needs the following config and probably only the first line in realityI will share my configuration with you. Ideally, if that doesn't work, let's compare differences using chat, Discord, before hijacking this thread, to later share our notes here.
Let's agree on using the “Elysium 2013” sample (420 MiB) from
4ksamples.comto verify and as metric. Plays fine, no frames lost or dropped. htop has the all-core average at 20–50%, no idea how to have VLC display it's gpu-accelerated. Update: Acceleration is active.
Anyway was just curious, not important enough to spend any time on as I was just using the 4kx60 vids as a gpu test.
