    Default What's the simplest way to setup hardware accelerate with E350?

    I'm new to E350 and ubuntu and found it's a bit of confusing to get this running. Currently I'm thinking of the combination of following:

    Catalyst 11.3
    xvba-video_0.7.8-1_amd64.deb
    xbmc (latest)

    Will this combination be sufficient for 1080P playback?

    Either use this PPA for Ubuntu for XBMC: https://launchpad.net/~lars-opdenkamp/+archive/xbmc-pvr

    Or build it from source. If you build from source, don't forget to install the latest libva1 & libva-dev libraries from SDS. XBMC-stable does not support VA-API yet.

    Which installations is required apart from this?

    fglrx i assume, is there a certain version that works/not works?
    how about xvba? Did not see that package in that repo, is it included in another package or should it be installed as well? From split-desktop?

    Would be lovely with some more input to solve this issue.

    I'm trying these combination:

    Catalyst 11.5 + xbmc from previous post + xvba from SDS + Ubuntu natty

    Will update if it's working later.

    Well there is a packaging conflict between libva from splitted-desktop (or the catalysthacks ppa) and xbmc (libva tries to overwrite a file installed by libva-glx on which xbmc depends). I couldn't resolve it yet, if you do please post back the resolution. A couple of posts on the issue from a few minutes ago:

    In the end, I rolled back the catalyst (11.3)/xbmc(10.1) and it's working now. Only problem is sometimes the playback is not smooth even with 720P. Not sure where to tune the performance.
