    This advice doesn't work. XvMC is only supported on GeForce 7 and older, while VDPAU is only supported on GeForce 8 and newer.

    So one'd need to buy a newer card, a software update is not enough.

    Nice but unfortunately users with Optimus-based laptops are still left out in the cold.

    Maybe it's time for an article about this issue? (and make sure people don't buy such laptops until NVidia drivers support them)

    Phoronix: NVIDIA 256.52 Linux Driver Brings Fixes

    Just shy of a month ago was when NVIDIA last released a proprietary Linux driver, at which point they also released a second driver that was their OpenGL 4.1 preview driver. This Saturday though NVIDIA has provided a new driver release, which is tagged as the 256.52 pre-release. This new Linux driver release isn't overly exciting, but it does carry some prominent fixes that will please some NVIDIA customers...
