VRD 6 vs WINE (linux)

I've been eagerly awaiting the v6 beta to see how it goes with WINE. Iniitial feedback is that it works setting the video mode to GDI but only with MPEG2. AVC (H.264) causes a crash. Part of the WINE crash log below, not that it means a lot to me. but it may be failing in the '264 decoder.

What CPU are you using? There's a problem in the current version where HEVC will crash on CPUs that don't have AVX2 (late model CPUs).
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600 CPU @ 3.40GHz, so no AVX2. Would that also cause H.264 problems?

A minor point but, probably because of missing libraries in WINE, the message of the day doesn't render the HTML, instead I see the raw text. Its not a problem at all really, can't expect everything to work and it happened with V5 too, but interestingly the beta expire warning message does render correctly.

Another problem, but likely not VRD's. I use OLE a fair bit but can't create an instance of VRD under WINE with a script. The WINE debug log says class not registered. Is there a manual way to re-register the com server with regsvr32.exe ? That will let me re-register it and see if there is anything obvious going wrong registering.

Never mind, user error. I forgot that VRD is 32 bit and was trying to start it from 64 bit land.

With setting the Deinterlacing option on the Playback devices page to Smart causes VRD to crash when a file that is internally flagged as interlaced is opened.

- YUV Acceleration unticked
- Displayed Aspect Ratio set to 16:9
- Video Driver set to GDI

What happens if you set deinterlace to Simple or None?

If those work, then I would check enabling deinterlacing when saving and making sure that there isn't an issue with the deinterlacer on Winw.
