Well UVD is even the worst solution for flash 10.1 accelleration... Maybe ATI should even polish the win drivers Nvidia+Intel beat UVD with ease...

as does ARM flash 10.1 it seems, and they dont have much in the way general optimised SIMD code blocks acceleration or SIMD optimised app's come to that yet.
what is odd is that a hard-core engineer such as Dirk Meyer would screw it up so much, to many yes men around perhaps! selling off the core.
perhaps he should have got out the office more and listened to the end user chatter more
"http://www.brightsideofnews.com/news/2011/1/10/coup-at-amd-dirk-meyer-pushed-out.aspx One of our sources, a former executive within the company was less than kind in his texts: "Dirk touched everything into Gold at DEC. In AMD, everything after K7 turned into Sh*t." When asked to elaborate, we were told that "Dirk and Hector run the company to the ground by selling the family jewlery. Dirk did not believe in Cellphone business and gave everything to BroadCom and Qualcomm. We lost Nokia, Motorola, Sony Ericsson and look who is now taking all the deals."

UVD2 works flawlessly for me with my 4870 and 6850. Play hd video fine with 0% cpu usage.

Yes, for me UVD2 is also working properly on Linux with mplayer-vaapi + xvba-video (CPU usage goes below about 12% in my P4 OC@3.5GHz)... My last post was somewhat "off-topic", I was talking about UVD2 performance on Windows + Adobe Flash (don't know if Flash 10.2 brings improvements for UVD2 on Windows)...

i can't figure out how to make hd accel work. warning, noob
i'm on ubuntu 10.10, i've just recently done a fresh install. i've installed ATI Catalyst 10.12 drivers. my card is Radeon Mobility HD 3470.
before, i had 9.10 with mplayer-vaapi working just fine. 10.10 has this libva version 1.0.1-3 and won't install the one available at http://www.splitted-desktop.com/~gbeauchesne. what should i do? i've been going through this thread, and i haven't been able to find anything...
i tried using latest vlc with the xvba-backend (or at least i think i tried, smth i found here) and my computer just freezes completely.
could someone please help?

You have to install the libva(-dev) from SDS and rebuild mplayer-vaapi or vlc against that. Some heavy lifting has already been done for you: http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubu...XPERIMENTAL.29

vaapi xvba problem
I can't get vaapi to work with my ATI HD5450 card on Fedora 14 64 bit.
I have installed vaapi from splitted-desktops and I have copied fgrlx_drv_video.so to the folder /usr/local/lib/va/drivers/.
I can't seem to find instructions anywhere on how to get vaapi working. On the splitted desktops site it says xvba-video requires catalyst 9.10 but when I try to install this version of Catalyst with the driver I downloaded from ATI website, I get an error saying it is not compatible with the version of my system.
