    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...

    Didn't everyone else move to libva?

      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.

          Huh? Could you try that again with more coherency and punctuation, and less smilies?

            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.

                  Not sure who is everyone else, Intel supports one, AMD supports both, so.. as nVidia likes to disagree.
                  VDPAU is basically dead, since it is dependant on X11. Libva does work in X11 and Wayland, so VDPAU will die in the foreseeable future.

                    And since it wasn't mentioned, 10 bit support apparently is still missing. Which is utterly stupid, as hevc 10 bit video is very expensive to decode on the CPU.
