UVD

AMD's Unified Video Decoder is found on recent generations of Radeon GPUs. The UVD allows for GPU-based hardware video decoding via XvBA with the Catalyst Linux driver or via the VDPAU state tracker with the R600/RadeonSI Gallium3D driver. Initial AMD UVD open-source support arrived in early 2013.
