    Default More Details On Wine's GPU Video Decode Plans

    Phoronix: More Details On Wine's GPU Video Decode Plans

    With the Wine 1.7.16 release that happened two weeks ago there was stub functions for Microsoft DxVA video acceleration. The support wasn't actually implemented, but we now have more of an idea for the Wine plans in handling DirectX Video Acceleration...

    About hardware video decoding/encoding. Do any of the host based (type 2) virtualization software translate hardware video decoding/encoding calls between the guest and host?

    Best guess would be MAYBE Vmware, but thats a maybe. KVM is still working on GPU Acceleration in the VM so thats a no, and probably not Virtualbox, just given their level of quality and efficiency in the past.

    EDIT: Microsoft Virtual PC might, only because I think thats restricted to Windows Clients On Windows Hosts, so they could very easily pass through the decode API

    So use libvlc too? Why don't use vlc or gstreamer?
