    Default Nouveau "NVC0" Gets Accelerated Video Decoding

    Phoronix: Nouveau "NVC0" Gets Accelerated Video Decoding

    With Git activity that took place this morning in mainline Mesa, the Nouveau driver now supports hardware-accelerated video decoding for this open-source NVIDIA driver with GeForce 400/500 "Fermi" and GeForce 600 "Kepler" graphics cards using their dedicated video engines...

    Great, then it is porno-compatible.

    Awesome.
    Nouveau gets video decoding before radeon too.

    Does VDPAU or VA-API work with it?

    Default Flash

    Does it work with Adobe Flash Player?

    Does YouTube, PornHub, Redtube, beeg, xhamster work?

    Nouveau are the fucking boses!

    AMD should hire them, get a bigger team and make them collaborate on the Open Source Radeon drivers.

    C'mon AMD! This is not funny anymore! Hire someone publicly unknown developer, give him the UVD specs, and claim he has reverse engineered it.

    Guys, sorry to disappoint, but this is neither new nor ready. What is released is the kernel + userspace for video decoding (VDPAU IIRC).

    Most of the work is left to be done. This work is reverse engineering most video-decoding microcodes and then re-implement that. FYI, this is like re-implementing ffmpeg (not everything, but a lot of it) in asm. The amount of code to be written is tremendous, several orders of magnitude bigger than what is needed to get 3D hw acceleration. Until then, you'll have to extract your video decoding firmwares yourself.

    But at the end, if firmwares are extracted, we will have VDPAU decoding with FOSS nouveau, right?
