    ANY support - open source or not - would be welcome! And as for it being an "older part", I had only just bought it - in a newly released laptop - when support was withdrawn! Indeed, the laptop was...

    Well, it worked on my HD4000 laptop using MPlayer-vaapi. That is, when the 13.1 driver didn't cause the machine to freeze while booting in the first place! I never used xvba - only vaapi. Ffmpeg...

    And what guarantee is there that if I buy another AMD laptop, I won't find that, once again, support is withdrawn five minutes after I take delivery? Sorry, AMD has just become too risky for me to...

    Not only that, but who is ever going to buy AMD again, if this is the kind of support they can expect? Not me, for a start......

    A while back, I bought a small Acer netbook - specifically to play HD videos over the HDMI port. And it did, courtesy of MPlayer-vaapi. I'd only had the thing for a couple of months, when AMD kindly...

    First of all, thanks to everyone for the replies! I think in some way they illustrate my point, in that there seems to be some confusion over what works, what doesn't and what may in the future!

    Open Source drivers and HD video

    A couple of years back I bought an Acer Aspire One netbook / mini-notebook specifically because it claimed to offer HD video playback and HDMI connections. Almost as soon as I bought it, AMD stopped...
  9. HD Video

    Energyman: OK, but I'm already running 3.2.X - so I'm expected to *downgrade* - or at least freeze - the rest of my machine simply because ATI want to drop support for something only 12 months old? I...

    Just over a year ago, I bought an Acer "Netbook". I need a small, portable device that can handle HD video, and it fits the bill perfectly. I use mplayer-vaapi, and it does everything I need.

    Ah! Apologies for that! We've only just got the earlier version over this side of the pond, so I was a bit hazy about the full spec!
