[News] NVIDIA VDPAU Assessed on Linux

Hash: SHA1

Using NVIDIA's VDPAU On Mobile Platforms

,----[ Quote ]
| We know that NVIDIA's Video Decode and 
| Presentation API for Unix (VDPAU) works very 
| well for exposing PureVideo capabilities on 
| Linux. We have benchmarked VDPAU and found it to 
| perform very well in that under Linux it's 
| possible to play HD videos with a $20 CPU and 
| $30 GPU thanks to this video acceleration 
| method. VDPAU is the best video acceleration / 
| decoding API on Linux and is widely adopted by 
| various multimedia applications, which is all in 
| contrast to AMD's XvBA and their troubled 
| implementation. But how does VDPAU work on 
| mobile devices? With the ASUS Eee PC 1201N that 
| is built on NVIDIA's ION platform we ran a new 
| set of VDPAU video playback tests.



NVIDIA Pushes Out 195.22 Beta Linux Driver

,----[ Quote ]
| Further enriching VDPAU continues to be a
| core focus of NVIDIA's developers and with
| the 195.22 release there are enhancements
| to the VDPAU blit-based presentation
| queue, updated VDPAU to improve thread
| concurrency (this could help the
| GStreamer-Cairo developers, modified the
| install location of the VDPAU libraries
| (see the recent libvdpau release), a
| define for VDPAU_INTERFACE_VERSION, and a
| fix for a periodic temporary hang in the
| VDPAU blit-based presentation queue. The
| main new feature for VDPAU though with the
| 195.xx series is that the Video Decode and
| presentation API for Unix now allows
| multiple streams to be decoded at once.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
