      What improvements? Where? When?
      I read the article and all I got is a history lesson.

      If there is going to be any improvement, I'll believe it when I see it.

        It was meant to be sarcastic. With that being said: UT3 on linux ftw!

          Why not accelerate the video on ATI cards in shaders? Is it much worse than using UVD2/3?

            This will be a Gallium3D state tracker. However, someone has to write the code. As of now, no one has.

              Yes, but the shader implementation would be far better than what we have now at least.

                  I'd first need to study a "hello world" shader introduction. Then have a look at what accelerated video decoding actually is.

                  Will take a while

                    This is probably not a bad place to start :

                    http://cgit.freedesktop.org/mesa/r600_demo/

                    I don't know if the code still works with the latest kernel drivers but reading through the code would probably still be useful.
