    Phoronix: NVIDIA VP3/VP4 Engines Exposed On Nouveau For MPEG-2/VC-1

    The open-source and reverse-engineered Nouveau driver is now able to tap the more recent "VP3" and "VP4" video encode/decode engines on recent NVIDIA GPUs that make up NVIDIA's PureVideo HD technology. With utilizing these VP3/VP4 engines, there can be MPEG-2 and VC-1 acceleration using this hardware...
