    Default HW-accelerated Video Decoding with a HD3300?

    Was helping out a person to see if his HD3300 could accelerate video playback any better on Linux than in Windows, but it doesn't seem like anything can be accelerated with VDPAU on that GPU.

    I was having the person try to play some videos with mpv from a Ubuntu LiveCD with some mpv PPA added. Figured the GPU would be old enough to not really need any bleeding-edge graphics stuff to function for the most part.

    He would like to be able to decode VC1 and h264 content. Is this possible?

    h264 gives:
    Code:
    [vdpau] Codec or profile not supported by hardware.
    [ffmpeg/video] h264: decode slice header error
    [ffmpeg/video] h264: no frame!
    Error while decoding frame!
    Error using hardware decoding, falling back to software decoding.
    and VC1 gives:
    Code:
    [vdpau] Codec or profile not supported by hardware.
    [vdpau] Codec or profile not supported by hardware.
    [ffmpeg/video] vc1: decoding to AV PIX FMT NONE is not supported.
    Could not open codec.
    Error using hardware decoding, falling back to software decoding.

    Default

    Enable universe in /etc/apt/sources.list, then install vdpauinfo and run it. mesa-vdpau-drivers are needed as well.

    Default

    Also that is a r600, which requires kernel 3.18.
