DRI3 Support Lands In Gallium3D's Video Code

Written by Michael Larabel in Mesa on 16 May 2016 at 05:12 PM EDT. 19 Comments
Gallium3D's video acceleration code for VA-API VDPAU state tracker were upgraded today with support for DRI3.

Since earlier this month AMD has been showing off patches for DRI3 VA-API and VDPAU support inside of Gallium3D rather than needing to fallback to DRI2 even when DRI3 is enabled on the system. Those patches have now landed in time for the Mesa 11.3/12.0 branching due to happen in a few days.

The code is all wired up now for both the VDPAU and VA state trackers to enjoy Direct Rendering Infrastructure 3 where supported.
