    only UVD2 has hardware HDCP Copyprotektion.. if they give some infos abaut uvd1 some people can hack the DRM Copyprotektion and the hd2000 VGA carts lost there Blueray hdready logo/funktionality..

    2nd hint: if it still does not play check mediainfo if it is h264 L5.1.
    Thanks Kano, with -vo vaapi:gl I got it to work.

    As you are a gentoo user why don't write yourself the needed ebuilds?

    Hate to burst your bubble but HDCP support is not included with the XvBA library. Linux itself has no HDCP capabilities. It is not only the video that has to be protected.

    I'll have to find some more taxing clips, but in my experience so far, this has pretty impressive results. I've been trying some of the various h.264 clips (trying to find the highest frame size and bitrate ones I can) on http://www.h264info.com/clips.html

    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

    is not included yes.. but you can revers engenering the UVD funktionality !

    if you have any funktion on the uvd1 in use you can revers the copyprotection.

    why there are no specs for the uvd2 unit?? its only because if they push out specs they lost@copyprotektion

    I realize that english is not your first language Qaridarium but the word is card not carts. In english this is a cart:



    and this is a card (at least when speaking in computer terms):
