TUTORIAL: Enabling purevideo HD Hardware Acceleration for Nvidia 8(including 8400mgs),9,GTX series to acheive only 15%-20% cpu usage for 1080p Video (For Desktops and Laptops)

The Good:

1) only 10 – 20 % cpu is used

2) ultra smooth playback even in powersaver mode

3) Utilisation of what we have

4) More battery life and also you can multi task while playing hd

5) Cpu will run cooler

6) Better Video(image) Quality than Software Decoders

Hey Nvidia Users We have a video processor in our GPU .. Then why should we use CPU?

The Bad :

1)External Subtitles Wont Work……. (DirectVobSub Will break the Hardware acceleration)

Tutorial: FOR H.264/avc/Blueray/HD DVD

1) Update The Driver of your Nvidia 8(including 8400 m gs),9,GTX series and above to the latest WHQL driver from NVIDIA Support Site..  Now the latest is 185.85…… For Desktops and notebooks..

2)Download power dvd ultra version 8

(only powerdvd gives effecient hardware acceleration compared to intervideo windvd and arcsoft total theatre  and even Media player Classic Home Cinema)

3) In powerdvd video configaration “Enable hardware acceleration (Nvidia purevideo)”

4) Download Zoom player version 6 Max

5) In advanced options in playback take smartplay

6)In Audio and video decoders tab   in H.264 click configure and select “Cyberlink h.264/avc decoder”

8) Open a 1080p video in zoomplayer

9) right click on any part of the video then select filter properties the select cyberlink h.264/avc decoder then ensure whether “use dxVa is enabled if not the enable it”

10) From the next time onwards when you play HD 1080p in zoom player it will use only 10 % to 20 % cpu (Otherwise 60% to 90 %)

11) Enjoyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!

TUTORIAL : FOR VC1 /wmv HD/Blueray

1)  Just play in windows media player or in the same zoomplayer
