    2011 catalyst news:tearfree,weight loss,h264Flash acceleration

    yes 2011 is funny time we got a light weight cytalyst because they put out the r300-r500 part and they put the xorg bin versions together.

    and we got tear-free desktop and surprise surprise finally we got h264 codex gpu acceleration in flash.

    and maybe we got an Adobe Creative Suite Linux version

    I'll believe it when I see it.

    me to but i only believe it if the function are not broken in the next driver version ... regression-testing is hard without git-bisect

    Well... the r300-500 part was already removed at Catalyst 9.3... Unless they didn't remove some old shared code in the driver...

    About the xorg bin versions "together", that will mean they'll just support Xorg Server 1.9.x / 1.10 versions?

    About the tear-free videos / H264 flash video acceleration: (btw, who needs flash with HTML5? ) Like Mr James said, I'll believe when I see it...

    Cheers

    p.s.: It would be nice they could fix the H264 video acceleration problem in UVD1 video cards, which is present since Catalyst 10.8 (at least)...

    you are wrong they hold the r300 parts because the windows version brings bugfixreleases for r300-r500 after that.

    10.2 was the last windows r300 driver means they start to pull out r300 stuff after 10.2 but its a lot of work.

    in 9.4 they only turn of the r300 part on linux.

    all versions they just put duplicatet parts togeter.

    in the past they use full version of every version number in the future they use 1 version and all other versions are generatet by difference part files.

    How are we getting h.264 acceleration in flash? Doesn't it only use vdpau?

    Yeah I would really like this to be fixed.

    Have they fixed suspend/resume issue, Xv colorspace issue and high cpu load when using shader based yuv to rgb conversion with mplayer gl output issue? I think not. All those 'goodies' you are talking about are absolutely worthless to me if the driver can't even do a proper suspend/resume. Besides anything you'll get with 11.1 they'll take it away with 11.2. That's what catalyst has always been about: regressions.

    1. Suspend/Resume issues? That might be more a problem from your system configuration (hardware/software used) than something else. Personally I don't have any of that problems with my cards, and I believe most people there don't have problems with Suspend/Resume (Unless they're using ToI, I think).

    2. Xv is old technology and uses CPU (the graphics card is only used for color conversions/scaling)... Long life to XVBA/VAAPI-based video acceleration!
    About the high CPU usage with YUV-to-RGB conversion + GL rendering in mplayer, I don't have such issue (At least, for me, it's using about the same CPU percentage as Xv uses, (and as I said in the Xv topic, GL/GL2 rendering is only used for color conversions/scaling))... Btw, in Xine, I can confirm there's a real problem (but that might be more a developer's problem than a driver one).

    Cheers

    Which is why I'm getting suspend\resume capability every other driver...
