    If your system can handle it, then we have very good news
    I'd love to but I have no BluRay clips or discs here. Any (legal ) links? I'm searching as we speak, but if you know of any I'd love to give it a shot.

    Cheers,

      As UVD provides full bitstream acceleration you should never see high CPU load.

      @Qaridarium
      The open source approach will probably not use the video decoding hardware, but shaders, and this won't be as efficient as bitstream-level acceleration -- not all decoding steps can be offloaded to hardware this way.

        I was in the same boat with my old Geforce 8800GTS G80 not supporting VDPAU.

          From what I know there were major internal architectural changes between UVD -> UVD2, which made it a lot easier to port (code wise, and hardware wise)

            And HD3xxx???????

            Yeah. Me, as a owner of a HD3650, I feel betrayed/dumped. Are UVD1 or UVD+ so different from the UVD2 that a unified or parallel driver is too much effort to implement?

            R63x is not that old!!! They're very similar to R700... why in the world are they loosing feature support?
            So disappointed

            If they hope me upgrading to R4xxx or 5xxx, well, this time I'm giving my money to nVidia. Sorry

              Actually.....the 7xx was very very different compared to the 6xx asics.

              The major difference between uvd, and uvd2 is the mpeg decode part.

                Yeah but depending on the revison of your 8800GTS (G80) there has never been any hardware HD video decoding on this Nvidia Chip.

                Thats the diffrence to the bullshxx Ati does with the release of a very limited decoding api, because there are many of Ati cards who are capable to do most h.264 vc1 decoding in hardware but are currently unsupported under Linux, while nvidia supports all purevideo2 and up devices under Linux


                Gr??e

                  The first legal I found
                  There is some problem with "'Legal"
                  I can't legally share with you my legal disc
                  I'm not even sure that the copy of my BD on my HDD (44GB) is legal

                  Forget the link, it's not "heavy" enough

                    Hey dont give us the infos for UVD2 the Blob work with UVD2 but it has no reasson why not on UVD

                    realy ;-)
                    When? what you mean with "older" cards? r300 up to r500?

                      Maybe the radeon driver can utilize openCL for that task when its finally ported to gallium, but annyway that wouldnt be as fast as UVD and of course iam just guesing if this is really possible.

                      But ok at least ATI released the specs for an oss driver which is more worth then some hd decoding which is something a modern cpu can do too.
