Intel Now Says G45 VA-API Will Come In Q2
Phoronix: Intel Now Says G45 VA-API Will Come In Q2
Long ago there was a promise by Intel's Linux developers that they would deliver VA-API video acceleration support to G45 IGPs in the second quarter of 2010. This didn't happen even while support for VA-API on Clarkdale/Arrandale arrived in early 2010. There's also now VA-API support for Sandy Bridge and even video encoding support. But the old G45 hardware hasn't received much love. It now appears though that Intel might release VA-API for G45 in the coming months...
Is the GS45 chipset also included?
This mobile chipset uses the GMA 4500MHD, and it supports accelerated h264 under windows.
Will programs like VLC need to be updated?
