    This work seems to be more about making the render part of the pipe more efficient (reducing # of copy operations etc.) when going through Cairo/pixman rather than through Xv. It's not really a decode acceleration initiative AFAICS.

    I'm not sure how this work aligns with discussions about building a video decode pipeline into Gallium3D, since the Gallium3D effort is also trying to keep all the processing "in one place" but keeping it in Gallium3D rather than in Cairo/Pixman.

    This is a fantastic opportunity for AMD to get its shit together regarding video acceleration.

    Phoronix: A Hackfest To Improve Linux Video Playback

    When it comes to video playback on Linux, the premiere choice for video acceleration is currently using VDPAU with its CPU-efficient, GPU-accelerated capabilities that even has no problems playing 1080p video files with extremely low-end hardware. However, VDPAU is not yet widespread in all Linux video drivers, and other free software developers have been working on improving other areas of the Linux video stack too...
