    Default How-To Use Open-Source Radeon UVD On Ubuntu

    Phoronix: How-To Use Open-Source Radeon UVD On Ubuntu

    With the Radeon DRM changes for Linux 3.10 lining up and including Radeon Unified Video Decoder support, it's becoming easier to take advantage of Radeon UVD-accelerated video playback with AMD's open-source Linux graphics driver...

    I just packaged mesa 9.1 git+uvd from http://cgit.freedesktop.org/~deathsimple/mesa/log/ and patched vdpau-video wrapper (for use with vlc) - basically only a few symlinks. I already packaged linux-firmware with uvd and kernel 3.9 rc7 + uvd patches. When mesa is uploaded i could even create iso images that can be used to test xvba (vlc) or vdpau (mplayer+vlc) with mesa+fglrx(gfxdetect mode) if somebody is interested.

    With my first tests i missed 1080p50 support (too slow) and a deinterlacer for 1080i50.

    Bridgman told me that Tom told him that Christian told Tom to tell Bridgman to tell me that: yes the UVD work will affect Flash

    Well it seems to work partly with Flash 11.2 + Iceweasel/Firefox. Partly because when you want to watch a clip that does not show directly but with a commercial before then Flash just crashes. Chrome + Flash did not seem to enable accellerated decoding.

    I would appreciate this. This would give me a chance to easily try it out on my mediapc and make sure HD video playback works smoothly on my AMD hardware.
