NVIDIA Releases Updated VDPAU Library (v0.6)
Phoronix: NVIDIA Releases Updated VDPAU Library (v0.6)
NVIDIA's Aaron Plattner released version 0.6 of the libvdpau open-source library before calling it a week...
VDPAU on nvidia:
implemented in: mythv, mplayer, xbmc, vlc, many more
XVBA on AMD:
SDK pending since at least 2K11 (phoronix has had some articles)
implemented in: xbmc(PR pending), xvba-vaapi-wrapper (development stopped 1 year ago)
VAAPI on Intel Hardware:
10bit Color transformation (? not really sure here - used to help decoding hi10p)
implemented in: vlc, mplayer-vaapi, totem, gstreamer, xbmc, many more
Intel: DTS-HD,TrueHD, LPCM (might require kernel patch, SandyBridge++), 192000 via hdmi
Nvidia: DTS-HD,TrueHD, LPCM (>= ION-2), 192000 via hdmi
AMD: No Bitstream at all, LPCM only 2 Channels, more channels only possible via pseudo formats like AC3, DTS that are coded on two real channels max 48000h via hdmi (spdif is a bit better)
You could write a nice article on: "What htpc current Linux Users should buy" :-)
I tried my nice Fusion Systems on Windows 8 7 days ago and nearly started crying ... cause all that is missing in the list above, just works there out of the box, easily by DXVA2 :-)

I have watched many movies with my family thanks to your XvBA work, so don't start crying just yet.
Hehe, thx - that was literally meant. I don't start crying when a nvidia GT610 is around for 30 bucks next corner.
