yes i have 5850.
and yes that is image of cat from hwdecode-demos.
when we can except support for 5xxx chip? it "almost" work.
Gbeauche, thanks for all of your hard work!
We really appreciate your efforts towards the AMD/ATI community
ATI Radeon HD 4850, Catalyst 10.1, ubuntu 9.10 64bit
in mplayer when -vo vaapi is used then colours are wrong - blue and red seem to be swapped. if i use only -va vaapi then it shows correctly, but doesn't seem to help with cpu usage very much (if at all). i see i am not only one with this problem, but according to http://www.splitted-desktop.com/~gbe...ne/xvba-video/ ATI Radeon 4870 should be officially supported. I have 4850 which should use same chipset then 4870 if i am not mistaken (RV770), but maybe its some difference in it which causes problems?
Concerning your colors problem, there are bugs and this is the current priority. Does this happen with a specific clip only or did you notice that with others too? Please try to post a capture (with a real camera for example). The clip could also help to see if this relates to the known problem. Thanks.
Note that only H.264 and VC-1 are accelerated. MPEG-4 Part-2 (DivX) are not handled by the HW. Please provide more information: MPlayer version used, likewise for xvba-video and the clip info.

I have them in my apt cache, so if you can't find them anywhere else, drop me a PM
So I guess there's no way to use the gl acceleration with the 5xxx series yet, no xorg.conf tricks might help?
