[MPlayer-dev-eng] [PATCH] PowerPC ffmpeg fixes

Hi all,

I've been away for quite some time, and when I came back 0.90 was released.
Great work!

However, divx playback does not seem to work correctly under Linux / PowerPC.
I'm not sure about the status on Darwin and BSD. The same problem has been
reported here:


The attached patch removes some Altivec-optimized code and that solves the
problem above. I'm not sure what and why things are broken, just that they 
are. And the patch is the short-term cure.

Also, my libmpeg Altivec patch did not seem to make it in to 0.90. I guess it 
was because you wanted to merge with the sf libmpeg project and the fact that no-
one reported any success/failure was probably a strong reason to not include it.
Anyways, PowerPC folks, the patch in the mail pointed out by the URL below will 
also apply to 0.90 and it will improve your DVD performace.


If any bugfixreleases are made to 0.90 please consider adding these patches.
