XBMC Gets Working Intel VA-API Support
Phoronix: XBMC Gets Working Intel VA-API Support
The popular open-source XBMC media player has had VDPAU support for more than a year now to offload some of the video decoding work during the playback process onto the GPU (primarily NVIDIA GPUs) using this robust Linux/Unix graphics API. However, for graphics hardware / drivers that do not implement NVIDIA's Video Decode and Presentation API for Unix, the XBMC mainline code-base now has working support for VA-API...
Any chance Fluendo pushes those accelerated bits into the free versions?
I think GStreamer is under LGPL so that means they could add closed bits in, IIRC. However, I don't know if that is what they've done here, and simply pushed their work out to the paying customers first.
