My configuration is: compiz + vendor drivers version 270.41.03 + flash 10,2,159,1 + firefox 3.6.16.
You should upgrade to Nv 270.41.06 (and maybe ff 4), then accelleration works better - did you really enable it using:
Basically it works but when i tryCode:mkdir -p /etc/adobe echo EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=1 > /etc/adobe/mms.cfg
Then i see the flash on top of everything even with ff 4 minimized.
-at the end of film (very frequently)
-at the beginning of film (very frequently)
-after minimizing/maximizing firefox (very frequently)
- in the middle of film (less frequently)
I think I'm going to start a "donate meth to your favorite dev(s) so they get shit done faster" charity program. Who's in?
Is there a more recent forum for this? Here is a status update.
Driver for many applications:
I believe that the branch has been merged with mesa and is even part of the latest release, though It's unclear if it's build/enabled by default.
As for xorg-edgers the code should now be included, but I can't confirm weather it is or not. As indicated it may not be compiled in a default build. There is no driver in /usr/lib/vdpau on my system, perhaps it's being built but not shipped as part of the package or there a missing dependency.
AddtoCode:--enable-vdpauto enable building. You'll also need to work out the dependants(libvdpau-dev). This will cause the build to warn about files in a folderCode:confflags_GALLIUMI copied this folder toCode:debian/tmp/dir/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/vdpauThe vdpau dir(path component) seams redundant as every ?soname? is prefixed with vdpau and the driver I have never uses this path. The other manual lobar I did was a symlink forCode:/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/vdpauThe default driver is hard-coded to nvidia settable via envCode:/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libvdpau_nvidia,so, however I think using alternatives for this file would be a better alternative to setting environments for global system configs like this and there doesn't seam to be a config file currently. I'm sure a super smart Debian/Ubuntu developer will be able to work out all the details so this can be built and installed per usual.Code:VDPAU_DRIVER
Hay, is there a better/any way to in-line code blocks? This post looks so lame, I know.

That's correct Zei54Nol. It's actually an understatement to say that he is starting now... In reality the work could be considered *pre-Alpha, *IMHO. So please give it a test!
It could be included in Ubuntu with minimal changes to the current package, though I wouldn't have it enabled by default. It's vary exciting and I for one would like to see more, like proper video support via UVD!
There is another news article that's more current.
Wow, this is good stuff. I have a R600 graphics card. I also run ubuntu, but am way too lazy to do the changes suggested above. OTOH if it is enabled by default in xorg-edgers I would install it.
If a post looks suspicious, check the user's other posts because the search list will show the posts unfiltered. And if they contain the same links, they're spam.
