    I have the exact same problem that you have. I can't compile libva (after I patched) because of those errors in libtool. I'm also using Arch Linux.

    I'd like to add that I tried using an older version of xvba-video (0.6.11), the one that's compatible with the libva in the Arch repos.
    I did get vainfo to work; but I had an error on the h264 hwdecode-demo. And when I play any video with -vo vaapi (or vaapi:gl) -va vaapi the video shows a black screen and my cpu goes crazy.

    I'm now using the current xvba-video (from the AUR) and thus I need to compile libva.

    So this isn't a really helpful post, but think of it as me confirming your problems.

    Probably make sure to have libtool 1.5.x (and .m4 dev files) or run libtoolize before autoreconf -vif ? Arch Linux packages are generally current though...

    I think the arch package for libva was downgraded due to the green screen issue that effects one ATI card or something. Because I saw mark's post a didn't try the compilation again.

    This did not work for me.
    mplayer-vaapi no longer goes insane on my cpu -- it just decides not to use vaapi.
    The packages in this repo are definately better, though.

    Here is my output for ./vaapi_h264 (there is an error)
    Code:
    $ ./vaapi_h264 
    Display type 'x11'
    Hardware accelerator 'vaapi'
    [hwdecode_demos] VA display 0xdc3980

    I'm guessing the problem is with XVBA_CreateDecode(). Anyway I can fix this?

    (I'm very close to getting this working...)

    What is the "green screen issue that effects one ATI card or something"?

    There is nothing you can do about it, I am sorry. Get another notebook and probably never buy ATI HW again in the future if you intend to get decent support on Linux.

    I've only heard from the comments in the AUR xvba-video package:

    Oh well...
    I guess I'll just have to boot into Windows to get video acceleration.
