    vdpau being an open api, given the proper knowledge and hardware access you could implement it on anything capable of video decoding.

    it would be basically the same as what gbaouche did, except he used va-api instead of vdpau.

    bridgman My question was probably lost in the thread, so I repeat it again - is it feasible to implement VDPAU on top of existing APIs XvBA or even using OpenCL for the purpose of getting accelerated Flash videos? Because VDPAU seems to be an open standard and it even has sources available.

    No, but we generally don't talk about future plans for Catalyst anyways.

    any clue when(if?) it'll make it to linux?

    So far, so good

    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

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

    Did it happen something to the address?

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