    I believe that's what happens. It decodes 10 bit video but with lower quality output.

    FireBurn Have you tried that in an actual player? Note how the patch you linked to only adds definitions to a header. Meaning it's possible for a driver to advertise support, but that's it. There is no way to actually use 10bit, unless you can point me to a commit that adds 10bit surface support to VDPAU.

    Looks like 10bit & 12bit support were added 4 years ago for HEVC https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/vdpau...6327e85add7fa9

    I primarily prefer 4:4:4 chroma subsampling for screen recordings.

    It's not actually. The windowing system support is a small part of the library and is well isolated. So it would not be that difficult to add support for a windowing system other than X. Nvidia would just need to care. Which they don't, since the creator of VDPAU left the company years ago. The things added in this driver release are very clearly something a specific workstation customer of Nvidia wanted, no one in the end-user world deals with 4:4:4 video, it's only used in intermediate steps of video production.

    Since VDPAU is a X11 technology, it's also a dead end, it will never be decoupled from X11. The nvidia camp is rolling towards nvenc/nvdec(nvcuvid) and intel/amd are using va-api. VDPAU is mostly there for legacy environments.

    Are you sure you're using VDPAU and not VAAPI? There is no 10bit surface support in VDPAU.
