Playback profiles are a way for MythTV to set individual settings for various types of media through the internal media player.

Three profiles come by default, CPU--, CPU+, CPU++. You may also create your own profile. These changes may only exist in SVN

Each profile is multiple groups of display options that apply to different source resolutions in the recording. The profiles will be evaluated in order of priority, then by matching resolutions, if those resolutions can be handled by the decoder specified. In other words, if you have ivtv specified as the decoder, but don't have a PVR-350 configured, those settings will be skipped in favor of the next matching profile group. Likewise, XvMC only supports MPEG-2 streams, so if you wish to use XvMC groups, they should be higher priority than Xv groups, so MPEG-4 recordings will fail through the XvMC groups but MPEG-2 streams will be caught by the higher priority XvMC group.

Examples

CPU++ default settings

CPU++ is designed for high powered machines. It relies entirely on software rendering to display the image.
