    FYI it was h.264 made of Blu-ray and is plenty high-quality enough for anyone. No messages of dropped frames.

      Also there's plans of getting VDPAU for opensource drivers under Gallium3D for ATi cards so the whole problem with XvBA might well prove uninteresting in the end.

        Could you please point me to such clips? In particular, the hardest clips for your CPU. Thanks.

          VLC supports VDPAU, indirectly through VA API. There is no native support for VDPAU though. And there is no performance loss either through the VAAPI-to-VDPAU bridge.

            How do you need to compile VLC to be able to use that?

              Here's one:

              If you can find more demanding clips than this one, please post them in this thread.

                From what I've heard, the most demanding material is probably the "Birds" clip from Planet Earth. It might be tricky to get ahold of it though.

                If you check the mythtv wiki, it should have a link to HD-PVR samples- which are reasonably challenging for a CPU to decode.

                  Much more demanding is real BD material - usually about 30 mbps.

                    That's illegal to watch in Linux, so problem solved

                      VLC git for the old approach that consisted in fetching the decoded frames back with vaGetImage(). However, a specific video-output (VO) for VA API was developed this summer. I don't know/think it's committed, and I did not even had the time to test it yet.

                      Old patch from the ML + a few hacks to make it just-build against 1.0.x:
