I honestly still have no idea what you are talking about. WHAT IS THE NV LIBRARY YOU ARE SAYING WE NEED TO COMPETE WITH ?
When you talk about our technology, I *think* you're talking about our transcoding app, which runs over the Stream tools on the proprietary driver, so maybe you're also talking about ffmpeg using CUDA over the NVidia proprietary driver today ?

I'm sorry, I just spent another half hour going through the links you posted and I still have no idea what that "NV library" is. It seems pretty clear that you want us to add GPU-assisted transcoding to the ffmpeg stack but I don't think anything like that exists for NVidia today either, so presumably we're talking about something else ??
Hopefully you can shed some light. Will check back in the morning.

why :angry: , OC its Stream and CUDA, unless theres another set of APIs im not aware of as yet, not every reader here or elsware have degrees in computer sciences as i assume you do, but thats no reason to be getting angree at people
Don/neuron2 that produces the DGAVCDecNV and DGVC1DecNV
said to me ..."Nvidia has a fine video decoding library and so I make use of it because libavcodec has problems that make it unsuitable for continued development.
So, for me, it's just going to be Nvidia, unless and until ATI make available a video decoding library, and not just a bunch of low-level functions.
and that seems to be the general feeling in the doom9 and other related messageboards threads, clearly someone in ATI needs to convince these developers of the popular video apps, to work with and provide mentoring and feedback.
the same for the linux HD video devs too, its not rocket science and no need to get or show anger here, you dont need to agree with my oppinion OC, mearly take it into consideration, and perhaps profit from it in the long term with better focus to those devs that can help advocate and produce long term apps results or continue on the current path and have these devs and users ignore ATI as they are doing now....

I'm guessing he's just talking about VDPAU, I wouldn't worry about trying to decode that rambling if I were you.

Hi Nille, yes it might indeed be VDPAU that Don/neuron2 was refering to see:

its not just transcoding, its any and all options that your average user takes to get the end result, if any part of the workflow can be passed off to the GPU, thats more spare cycles for the CPUs to do other related video procesing stuff in a given timeframe, if that makes sense to you!.

you consider asking for, and airing the subject of GPU assisted HD video processing with the readers here rambling ?, very odd.

i take it then that you dont care about any potential future ATI assisted GPU code (whatever that might be, if any)being written, and diffs against the current FFMPEG codebase being submitted.

Ah, OK. You're talking about the CUDA vs Stream computing on GPUs.

I haven't tried messing around with either so I can't say much on the subject. Except that I really hope they both just die and OpenCL takes their place as an open (and compatible) standard.
