    Default Google's Linux Video Acceleration API: VAVDA

    Phoronix: Google's Linux Video Acceleration API: VAVDA

    For those that haven't heard, for Google's Chrome web-browser and ChromeOS operating system, they have their own Linux video playback acceleration API...

    It must be fun to rename stuff all the time. But i really like that vaapi is used now. Hopefully it does not crash when the xvba or vdpau wrappers are used. Usually there should be no h264 l5.1 content in the web, so it might work...

    Gosh! Why does everybody want to have his own Linux Video Acceleration API?
    There is a standard since many years somehow NOBODY implements: OpenMAX by Khronos Group!
    Just implement that and kill every vendor-specific API!

    The way I read it, this isn't a new API, it's just a wrapper to integrate hardware decoding into Chrome.

    Not another standard please, I'm glad it's only a rebranding.

    P.S.
    Since when does flash support va-api?

    The regular NPAPI one doesn't. But it seems Google's PepperFlash now does.

    VAVDA = V(a)A(pi)V(ideo)D(ecode)A(cceleration).

    This is NOT a new API.
    This is ENABLING of an existing one.

    Which is a good thing.
    But nothing out of this world.
