As you can only "use" vaapi via vlc expect the mplayer numbers pointless as they do not show a correct picture. vlc needs much higher cpu especially when you switch from xv to opengl (together with amdcccle set to quality), the cpu usage is very high then [...]
can you please point me to places where i can learn more about this? trying to decide if i use vlc or xbmc-core
It does not work with 12-3, it works with 8.96 beta, but not vdpau - it is called xvba and works best with the FernetMenta branch of xbmc (the xvba branch is outdated now). it does not support h264 l5.1, i would definitely NOT buy the card if you want it for video accelleration. if somebody has got ati cards already this branch is the best to use for video acc but even intel oss has got better vaapi support (for standard xbmc or vlc).
Does this mean i would have decent video acc with nvidia OSS? i don't care much about power consumption and price, but i'd love to be able to use the OSS drivers alone on my htpc.
or is this just to point out that ati would be even worse then the already bad nvidia oss?
