NVIDIA

In hopes of pushing VDPAU beyond just being a NVIDIA Unix driver technology and to make it an open standard for Linux video driver developers wishing to provide HD video acceleration on Linux via the GPU, NVIDIA released a standalone VDPAU library back in September and have been trying to push some VDPAU bits for DRI2.

Today NVIDIA has updated its standalone VDPAU library, libvdpau, which is now at version 0.3. This library update supports versioning to the drivers, configurable install directory support, libvdpau_trace, and documentation updates. The libvdpau 0.3 release announcement can be read on xorg-announce.

Separately, Splitted Desktop Systems today made available an update to libva. Splitted's libva allows the VA-API acceleration API to be exposed atop their VDPAU and XvBA back-ends. It was just at the start of the month that AMD's XvBA finally became usable on Linux via this VA-API interface. There is no change-log for today's release, but the libva_0.31.0-1+sds8 release should provide a few fixes. There's nothing real exciting though to be expected. The package can be downloaded from this directory.
