      the OVDecode.lib is there for the windows 32bit install, but OVDecode.so is not in the 32 bit linux lib/x86 dir, didn't check the 64bit packages.

        LOL, also they have problems with the win32 install too, their SDK Installation Notes say that you can install it on a PC with a non supported OpenCL Gfx card installed, and still run the CL examples on the CPU, but they Dont

        • So Bridgman any chance you can chase this down and find out who scewed up ? and why that OVDecode library is missing from the current Linux SDK

          as it seem's gbeauche or indeed anyone cant even begin to look into supporting Video decoding without All the required files in a fully self contained Direct download URL Update would be nice ASAP

          what a mess this chrismas SDK release is turning into, and just as the world's OSS Dev's are home for the holiday's and looking to contribute some new spare time and effort to projects.....

          • So will support for UVD 1 cards ever be fixed? According to wikipedia UVD 2 cards are the only ones even supported by XvBA

              apparently not, gbeauche cant work miracles if the long time bugs he's already reported under NDA to AMD Dont get fixed.

              Bridgman, you didn't comment on my other post above , did you miss the request to sort that missing OVDecode library, so people can at least start to look at testing that for video decode on AMD at least...

              • Btw, now I've a question: Since last friday, I'm not able to access to the official xvba-video download address anymore... (I've been trying to update xvba-video to version 0.7.7)

                The site is giving a "404 not found" error...

                Did it happen something to the address?

                Cheers

                  I didn't think OpenDecode had been released for Linux -- AFAIK it is Windows-only right now.

                    It should be back online, the website suffered a failure.

                      Thanks. I've just upgraded my xvba-video libs to 0.7.7 and I can tell you everything's working properly with both my personal laptop HD2600 (and Catalyst 10.7) card and with my desktop's HD4650 AGP card (and Catalyst 10.12).
                      With this xvba-video version, I also found that the "segmentation fault" error when typing the vainfo command in the terminal was fixed (using the libva library from freedesktop.org).

                      Finally, thanks for reporting the problem with UVD1 video cards and recent catalyst versions (It'd be a nice new year present if ATI devs could fix the problem...)

                      Cheers
