    Nvidia does contribute work on FFMPEG, as Intel and AMD do, for their respective GPU decoding tech and methods. Each company has their own priorities and capabilities, depending on what they have on the market, so parity of support and performance between all three is rare.
    Ok, but where is Intel's or AMD's contributions on FFmpeg ?
    I see pretty much news about Nvidia contributions only.

      It was. Several years ago, Nvidia abruptly and quietly terminated all VDPAU development, in order to force CUVID/NVDECODE (CUDA) on Linux users and developers, but programs like VLC and such didn't want to go to the trouble required to adopt it into their future builds, so after a few years of trying and trying and trying to get it supported, they gave up and resurrected VDPAU.

        I believe that Nvidia has their own dev team and Intel has a small one, while AMD mostly relies on third-party devs to do their work. Because Intel GPU advances are few and far between, they only get the occasional news bit, while Nvidia is constantly throwing out updates due to having several generations of GPU in play at all times.

          This is good to know. Did they end up going through the extra mile to make VDPAU also work with native Wayland properly? Iirc it used to require XWayland.

            Mpv can use vdapu (vdpau-copy if I remember well) under Wayland.
