    You must be really lucky that it even began to decode. Which card did you use and what driver?

I can tolerate the buggy fglrx, I can tolerate my wine broken all the time, but why fglrx can't even bring a small happiness to its RV6xx buyer?! I really think my requirement for fglrx is quite low. I just want hardware acceleration for video decoding so I can watch some 1080p video in linux environment. ATI/AMD, you really break my heart.
    realy its a good move to drop fglrx ....

    i will tell you some points!

    OpenCL/fglrx do not work on hd2000/HD3xxx openCL/radeon will work on HD3xxx

    Viedeo acceleration/fglrx do not work on hd3xxx but will work on Radeon/Galium3D...

    FGLRX will not have kernel mod settings ....



    FGLRX is a Lame-Duck no one sould care abaut it..

    This isn't a comprehensive, or particularly scientific benchmark, but it gives an idea of the difference in processor (CPU) usage between Xv and XvBA. I'm using htop to monitor mplayer, btw.

    Phenom II 810 (2.6GHz), MSI 790GX-G65 using onboard HD3300:


    I am Legend 1080p (really 816p):
    without XvBA: max 77% CPU
    with XvBA: max 3% CPU


    Coraline 1080p (from the link at the top of the page at Digital Digest)

    without XvBA: spiked at 99% usage 102secs into the clip, mplayer complains system is too slow, but for the most part was 30-70%
    with XvBA: %2-3

    So far any of the others I've played back give the same results: no more than %3 usage. If anyone knows of a particularly strenuous clip I'd like to try it.

    Cheers,
    Jesse

    lol, how come is it a "might be"?! I thought open source driver is the only option I have... Oh, my friend, don't give me hope...

    What I know is that there will be shader-based decode acceleration in the open source drivers. Don't assume any more than that.

    Okay I just had my 3rd reboot due to a X Server lock up today , I'm done testing. F*ck UVD, I'll wait for the stable open source shader based solution.
