I have configured the motherboard with 512MB through the BIOS.
The stream option is checked in the frontend.

Can you tell me what your settings are for cpu++ and what you have in
your xorg.conf file (modules section). Also, how did you install
(source, ubuntu etc)?

I have also just installed the latest nvidia drivers (180.22) from the
nvidia website but can not confirm it has worked until I get home

I had seen this in my log which caused me to start playing with the
playback settings...

VideoOutputXv Error: XvMC output requested, but is not supported by display.
