    hi!

    i can't figure out how to make hd accel work. warning, noob

    i'm on ubuntu 10.10, i've just recently done a fresh install. i've installed ATI Catalyst 10.12 drivers. my card is Radeon Mobility HD 3470.

    before, i had 9.10 with mplayer-vaapi working just fine. 10.10 has this libva version 1.0.1-3 and won't install the one available at http://www.splitted-desktop.com/~gbeauchesne. what should i do? i've been going through this thread, and i haven't been able to find anything...

    i tried using latest vlc with the xvba-backend (or at least i think i tried, smth i found here) and my computer just freezes completely.

    could someone please help?

    Cheers
    I was talking about windows as well I don't have any UVD2 cards to use with linux, my desktops that run those are windows only. My UVD1 card (hd2600) works in windows with dxva but does not work in linux with va-api/xvba.

    It seems current Catalyst's UVD2 implementation isn't working very well on Windows too... (But I can't confirm it, since my 4650AGP card is installed with Windows XP).

    Hope the new Catalyst version that's coming solves the video decoding problems on Windows/Linux OS's...

    as does ARM flash 10.1 it seems, and they dont have much in the way general optimised SIMD code blocks acceleration or SIMD optimised app's come to that yet.

    what is odd is that a hard-core engineer such as Dirk Meyer would screw it up so much, to many yes men around perhaps! selling off the core.

    perhaps he should have got out the office more and listened to the end user chatter more

    "http://www.brightsideofnews.com/news/2011/1/10/coup-at-amd-dirk-meyer-pushed-out.aspx One of our sources, a former executive within the company was less than kind in his texts: "Dirk touched everything into Gold at DEC. In AMD, everything after K7 turned into Sh*t." When asked to elaborate, we were told that "Dirk and Hector run the company to the ground by selling the family jewlery. Dirk did not believe in Cellphone business and gave everything to BroadCom and Qualcomm. We lost Nokia, Motorola, Sony Ericsson and look who is now taking all the deals."

    LOL well now that their CEO Dirk Meyer that thought it was a good idea and so sold off their manufacturing unit Doh, is gone after a third-quarter net loss of US$118 million.

    the Executive Board are on the lookout for someone to save them from the Intel/ARM onslaught so perhaps they will take those r?sum? after all

    Two Years and all change again, is it bad or not getting through two CEO's per new CPU design cycle
