    VDPAU on nvidia:
    H264
    VC1
    MPEG2
    MPEG4
    BOB deinterlacing
    WEAVE
    Temp/Spatial deinterlacing
    Color Processing
    constantly improving
    implemented in: mythv, mplayer, xbmc, vlc, many more

    XVBA on AMD:
    H264
    VC1
    BOB deinterlacing
    SDK pending since at least 2K11 (phoronix has had some articles)
    implemented in: xbmc(PR pending), xvba-vaapi-wrapper (development stopped 1 year ago)


    VAAPI on Intel Hardware:
    H264
    VC1
    MPEG2
    MPEG4
    10bit Color transformation (? not really sure here - used to help decoding hi10p)
    BOB deinterlacing
    constantly improving
    implemented in: vlc, mplayer-vaapi, totem, gstreamer, xbmc, many more

    To finish:
    Audio part:
    Intel: DTS-HD,TrueHD, LPCM (might require kernel patch, SandyBridge++), 192000 via hdmi
    Nvidia: DTS-HD,TrueHD, LPCM (>= ION-2), 192000 via hdmi
    AMD: No Bitstream at all, LPCM only 2 Channels, more channels only possible via pseudo formats like AC3, DTS that are coded on two real channels max 48000h via hdmi (spdif is a bit better)

    You could write a nice article on: "What htpc current Linux Users should buy" :-)

    Offtopic:
    I tried my nice Fusion Systems on Windows 8 7 days ago and nearly started crying ... cause all that is missing in the list above, just works there out of the box, easily by DXVA2 :-)

      I have watched many movies with my family thanks to your XvBA work, so don't start crying just yet.

        Hehe, thx - that was literally meant. I don't start crying when a nvidia GT610 is around for 30 bucks next corner.
