    Well, VDPAU VP9 support means I can now play 4K HDR videos on Youtube using GPU decode as long as browsers like Firefox support it?

            The dmabuf is needed specifically for Firefox's implementation. The GPU video decode with vaapi in principle works fine with the patched vdpau-to-vaapi driver https://github.com/xtknight/vdpau-va-driver-vp9

              I don't see anything new about Linux 5.9 support; I'm crossing my fingers it's not gonna take too long.

                  Typically the usual suspects using such proprietary blobs (nvidia / vmware) wait until actual kernel release before adding the needed changes to their next software releases. Of course, for the impatient, there tend to be unofficial community patches (with varying levels of QA) floating around that make it possible for individuals to build a working solution too. So if you want it bad enough, go be bad.

                    CUDA? Last I knew the nvidia-uvm driver was being blocked by the gpl-shim changes in the 5.9 kernel. And there was nothing mentioned in the changelog (not that the nvidia changelogs are always complete).
