    You must be really lucky that it even began to decode. Which card did you use and what driver?

AMD/ATI you betray all faithful buyers who bought your RV6xx even though the performance was worse than Nvidia. I can tolerate the buggy fglrx, I can tolerate my wine broken all the time, but why fglrx can't even bring a small happiness to its RV6xx buyer?! I really think my requirement for fglrx is quite low. I just want hardware acceleration for video decoding so I can watch some 1080p video in linux environment. ATI/AMD, you really break my heart.
      realy its a good move to drop fglrx ....

      i will tell you some points!

      OpenCL/fglrx do not work on hd2000/HD3xxx openCL/radeon will work on HD3xxx

      Viedeo acceleration/fglrx do not work on hd3xxx but will work on Radeon/Galium3D...

      FGLRX will not have kernel mod settings ....



      FGLRX is a Lame-Duck no one sould care abaut it..

          This isn't a comprehensive, or particularly scientific benchmark, but it gives an idea of the difference in processor (CPU) usage between Xv and XvBA. I'm using htop to monitor mplayer, btw.

          Phenom II 810 (2.6GHz), MSI 790GX-G65 using onboard HD3300:


          I am Legend 1080p (really 816p):
          without XvBA: max 77% CPU
          with XvBA: max 3% CPU


          Coraline 1080p (from the link at the top of the page at Digital Digest)

          without XvBA: spiked at 99% usage 102secs into the clip, mplayer complains system is too slow, but for the most part was 30-70%
          with XvBA: %2-3

          So far any of the others I've played back give the same results: no more than %3 usage. If anyone knows of a particularly strenuous clip I'd like to try it.

          Cheers,
          Jesse

            lol, how come is it a "might be"?! I thought open source driver is the only option I have... Oh, my friend, don't give me hope...

            Just wondering, why do you change your attitude so much about fglrx? Does it break your heart?~~~~~~~ LOL

              Format/Info : Advanced Video Codec
              Format profile : High@L3.1

              Also hangs mplayer after a while here....

                i do not have a problem with the FGLRX i buy a 4670 and sell my 3850 only for full featured FGRLX...

                i do not have problems.. i Buy a new graficcard every time!

                you have the problem with the FGLRX!



                and i tould you Drop FGLRX driver for old hardware and use/help the opensource driver!

                  What I know is that there will be shader-based decode acceleration in the open source drivers. Don't assume any more than that.

                    Okay I just had my 3rd reboot due to a X Server lock up today , I'm done testing. F*ck UVD, I'll wait for the stable open source shader based solution.

                      hahahaaaa muhhahhaaaa i tould you the opensource driver will DOOOM the FGLRX...

                      • I works a bit better for VC1 and some H264 L4.1 work too. But compared to vdpau it is definitely crap in the current state.

                          the opensource driver will be better than nvidia's vdpau ....

                          you know it!

                          in my point of view i never touch a Nvidia again 8600gt RIP 7900GT RIP Nvidia is a complete FAIL!

                          FAIL in the hardware side not software all my ati/amd cards are still alive up to my 8500 and X800 and so on.. all my nvidia's RIP...

                          • The OSS driver is not even working correctly for years old hardware - will update my snapshot soon to have got a few new ids, but basically the ati drivers are the most problematic ones. Until we can see working video accelleration with ati cards you will have to wait more likely years than months. Nvidia's vdpau works NOW.

                              no on my hardware vdpau does NOT work!

                              because all my nvidia hardware are broken !

                              geforce 7900 RIP geforce 8600 RIP...

                              working driver on an failing hardware is no driver!

                                I've got about 6 dead ATI cards for ya. No nvidia's.
