    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.....

    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

    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.

    The subtitle flickering is not present using (xvba-video_0.7.6-1_i386).
    I released 0.7.7 normally without your flickering problem. That one could have been caused by a combination of obsolete driver or other bugs. XVBA_VIDEO_PUTSURFACE_FAST=0 to disable the feature in 0.7.7.pre. This is the default for final 0.7.7.

    This problem is also happening on Windows 7... I don't know what happened to recent ATI drivers, but this card in the decoded H264 and VC-1 videos properly on Windows Vista / Windows 7 before. Now, it doesn't (in both Windows and linux Catalyst drivers...).
    With relative recent versions of xvba-video and Catalyst Linux 10.x (between Catalyst 10.4 and Catalyst 10.7), we could decode videos properly with a UVD1 card. Now (with catalyst 10.8-10.12), nothing.

    Cheers

    p.s.: Btw, UVD2 cards (HD4xxx and higher) seem to work properly with recent Catalysts... (Tested on my desktop's HD4650, with Catalyst 10.12)
    Yeah I was just reading on another forum in a thread about the windows driver that a lot of people were getting green garbled playback flash videos like I got with vaapi in linux.
