    xvba can decode h264 up to l4.1 but not l5.1. That means when you have got bluray m2ts you can play em but not videos encoded with a higher level.

    not only that, Encoding anything higher than high profile level 4.1 is a waste of time today anyway, its not just xvba, many decoders outside the PC realm don't even try accommodating anything over L4.1

    Many of the newer home video cameras are capable of recording at a 4.2 level now. 1080P@60fps.

    if these 3 issues get fixed i will live happily ever afer.
    cat 11.1 brings the "no tearing" maybe 1% of the users can not use this because of bugs in the 11.1 driver.

    I tried many different settings in amdcccle including the default config. If you look in the wrong direction at a wrong angle it just freezes. At this canal it was everytime. I tried a geforce 8800gt right after that in the same PC and same wine config etc. and it worked extremely well. Unfortunately the card seems to have a memory error.
    Can we please, please, PLEASE stop complaining about wine? As it's been stated several times over on this website and others: The wine developers are Nvidia users, and as such they use a lot of Nvidia-centric hacks to get things to work. fglrx has issues but this is one that is out of their hands.

    It's been stated several times on this forum and others how gfx cards work. One of the main problems with computer graphics is the amount of gray areas that exist (read: the features and functions that aren't explicitly defined/covered by the specs). People who follow graphics technology have acknowledged this. Developers have acknowledged this. Hell even bridgman himself acknowledged this. All we can do is hope DirectX 11 games work better with ATi - seeing as how they had DX11 cards a full 6 months before Nvidia produced one.

    Sure I could. But:
    Does intel also have these issues with wine?

    had to do some googling, as i've never actually seen anyone pose that question, or comment on the subject of it.


    but the impression i got from reading on the wine mailing list some was that the situation for intel cards is much worse then the one for AMD ones.

    which isn't really suprising.
