    I just acquired a netbook with Radeon HD 6310. I was able to set up vdpau for deconding with the libvdpau-va-gl1 driver(followed by uncommenting the last two lines in the config file /etc/X11/Xsession.d/20vdpau-gl), but it has stopped working after todays update. Maybe libdrm-radeon has changed?

    A possiblly related question is where to get r600_drv_video.so?

    Code:
    $vainfo
    libva info: VA-API version 0.34.0
    libva info: va_getDriverName() returns 0
    libva info: Trying to open /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dri/r600_drv_video.so
    libva info: va_openDriver() returns -1
    vaInitialize failed with error code -1 (unknown libva error),exit
    Code:
    $ vdpauinfo
    display: :0.0   screen: 0
    [VS] Software VDPAU backend library initialized
    libva info: VA-API version 0.34.0
    libva info: va_getDriverName() returns 0

    Not sure if missing r600 is the reason as it was never there and vdpau decoding was working yesterday before the update.

    Hope that someboday can help. Thanks.

    Packages name changed recently on trusty, I synced them from the updated Ubuntu ones. For more info see:

    Don't use libvdpau-va-gl1. That emulates vdpau using va-api and gl for drivers that don't support vdpau. The performance will not be good. The radeon driver supports vdapu natively. Install the libg3dvl-mesa and mesa-vdpau-drivers packages.

    With libvdpau-va-gl1 smplayer plays 720p on this not very strong machine with ~9% cpu and smooth like butter, without it is about ~120% (two cores) and stutters. The improvement on flash performance (Youtube only) is also spectacular, it is a difference between ~20% and 120%. I had libg3dvl-mesa installed but there is no mesa-vdpau-driver in my repo, this is on Ubuntu 13.10 (is the missing r600 from mesa-vdpau-driver?)

    You just need libg3dvl-mesa . r600 and other drivers are in /usr/lib/*/vdpau/ .

    Hi, so do I just symlink /usr/lib/vdpau/libvdpau_r600.so to /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dri/r600_drv_video.so
    so that the system can find it?

    (see the error in vainfo and vdpauinfo in first post, linking /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dri/vdpau_drv_video.so did not work)

    OK, I figured it out after a lot of googling.

    Remove vdpau-va-gl and its configuration file
    Put in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc these two lines
    Code:
    VDPAU_DRIVER=r600
    LIBVA_DRIVER_NAME=vdpau
    Then reboot. Now vdpau works and vdpauinfo no longer complains about missing r600. I don't know if it is obvious to everyone to put those two lines in X's init file but I have a hard time finding any instruction other than that the driver is already there. Maybe this will help someone else with same problem. It may be good to say a few words about this in the instructions for using the ppa on launchpad. That would help the not so experienced users a lot.

    P.S. It seems that vdpau-va-gl is not very stable on this machine, apparently vdpau stops working randomly on reboot here. It might not be because of the update yesterday that vdpau was broken.

    There is no need for this.

    You shouldn't be using vdpau-va-gl. As I said before it's a vdapu emulator for systems that don't support vdpau.
