720p Big Buck Bunny trailer not running smoothly with BeagleBoard demo image.

Dear BeagleBoard folks,

I tried to play the Big Buck Bunny trailer [1] using the file from the
QuickTime column with 720p/5.1 surround.

Unfortunately running

    $ omapfbplay trailer_720p.mov

it is not running smoothly.

I am using the BeagleBoard demo image from [2] updated with `opkg
update; opkg upgrade` as of now.

    $ more /proc/cmdline
    ttyS2,115200n8 console=tty0 root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 rw rootfstype=ext3 rootwait mem=99M@0x80000000 mem=128M@0x88000000 omapfb.mode=dvi:1280x1024MR-16@60

What other information do you need to tell me what I am doing wrong.

Dear BeagleBoard folks,

I tried to play the Big Buck Bunny trailer [1] using the file from the

Unfortunately running

   $ omapfbplay trailer_720p.mov

it is not running smoothly.

You're trying to play the h264 version, which would need DSP assistance (and likely updated DSP codecs) to play smoothly. In the past we used the MPEG4 ASP version: http://mirror.bigbuckbunny.de/peach/bigbuckbunny_movies/big_buck_bunny_720p_surround.avi

I suppose you use omapfbplay. The omapfbplay can play only mp4 720p
video at 24fps. But *_720p.mov uses h264. The omapfbplay can not reach
24fps at the moment.

IIRC, a TI doc. mentions DSP codec doesn't support 720p for omap3. I
don't know if there is an update since then.
