    Why would Nvidia support an competing solution that is driven by Intel? Apps that want to take advantage of video acceleration on Nvidia hardware should be using VDAPU because it is the officially supported and guaranteed to work thing.
    Why Intel or AMD should support VDPAU then?

    Thinking like that is why nvidia is where it is right now with linux. By that logic why does nvidia support vulkan?

    Just like VDPAU is controlled by Nvidia. Designers of other hardware provides and supports VAAPI.

    Both VAAPI and VDPAU are open standards that can be implemented by different cards. Since VAAPI is supported by more applications and Nvidia doesn't look very interested in VDPAU or any other API than NVDEC, then it's probably better to stick to VAAPI and project like this is needed unless Nvidia provide support for VAAPI natively which we can safely assume they probably won't.

    VDPAU is probably what should have been standardized years ago, but no, all 3 GPU vendors had to make their own. Sigh..

    Phoronix: NVIDIA VA-API 0.0.6 Driver Works On Multi-Threaded Decode, Improved GPU Selection

    The open-source, unofficial project providing a NVIDIA VA-API driver on Linux systems built atop the proprietary driver's NVDEC video decode interface is out with a new feature release. This NVIDIA-VAAPI-Driver effort continues to be driven in large part for allowing GPU-accelerated video acceleration in Firefox and other software only targeting the open Video Acceleration API...
