    Phoronix: VDPAU Library 1.3 Switches To Meson Build System, Adds VP9 Video Format Definitions

    While NVIDIA is focused upon their CUDA-based video encode/decode solution moving forward, they do continue supporting and maintaining their existing VDPAU-based video decode stack. Of the driver-neutral VDPAU library (libvdpau) on Wednesday they issued the newest update...

      Khronos really should fold their disparate GPU libraries into a single standard. If a system supports Vulkan API, it should also have video encoding/decoding APIs... and OpenCL/Audio/OpenGL/ES/etc. Even the cheapest SOCs support some level of all of those these days...

        Let me know when chrome/ium and/or firefox support it. Until then, I don't care.

              There are some applications which still use VDPAU only, such as mplayer. Most of them are old, though.

                Meson and CMake are the future. Autotools is hard to learn and understand despite people's claims of "./configure && make" being "easier" than Meson/CMake. So many unneeded checks that take 30 seconds to finish.
                Autotools is the Rube Goldberg of build systems.

                    Cmake? That would be a move in the wrong direction. And most projects agree. They move to Meson
