Well xbmc was the only app that managed to show vc1 with vaapi with ion1 via vdpau, with mplayer+vlc i got errors. Intel can not accellerate vc1 at all, but when you only dl the movies you get mainly h264 l5.1. in that case intel i3/i5 duals with onchip vga might be interesting. vaapi is not bugfree there but its improving. For full features get nvidia gfx, thats clear. Stay far away from ATI when you want working video accelleration with Linux.
No announcement yet.
Recommendations for a netbook with 3D accelerator?
