Work On X-Video In Gallium3D Is Underway

Earlier this month we shared that X-Video and EXA support were coming to Gallium3D in the form of a state tracker to accelerate these X.Org APIs across any Gallium3D driver. At the time of that earlier article, the EXA 2D support was being partially implemented but the X-Video support was still left to be accomplished. Well, as of this afternoon, Zack Rusin has started pushing out code to the X.Org state tracker in Mesa that is adding the X-Video support.

The initial commit adding X-Video acceleration to this Gallium3D state tracker can be found on the Mesa master repository. This work will appear in Mesa 7.7, but of course most users are waiting on proper Gallium3D hardware drivers to arrive, not to mention that X-Video and EXA support is already implemented in most of the current X.Org DDX drivers. It, of course, will become more interesting once VDPAU and XvMC are supported by a Gallium3D state tracker.
