    You sure that it's the drivers that need fixing or vainfo? The reason that I ask is that vdpauinfo still works without issue.

      With ION LE?

        Not sure about the LE but it works fine on ION and the 9400 in a macbook (as well as GTX 480, GTX 275, 8800GT, 8200 IGP).

          Well it does not in a Samsung N510.

            You did install libvdpau on the system right since the drivers no longer provide it?

              Of course.

                how is it crippled on Quadro cards?

                  No I think we have to see OpenCL added to mplayer etc. CUDE only works on nvidia gfx's, but OpenCL works on almost all vendors.

                    Didn't AMD/ATI implement OpenCL in their drivers?

                      Yes, they have. There's even a small benchmark.

                      OTOH, OpenCL is a standard and CUDA is just a vendor specific API. I'd also prefer OpenCL even it is a bit harder to code.
