Major Open-Source Code Drop For XvBA, PowerVR Coming
Phoronix: Major Open-Source Code Drop For XvBA, PowerVR Coming
Still trying to grasp the situation, but as I tweeted yesterday, there's some big news to deliver today beyond the AMD Llano launch. This news is that a lot of VA-API and XvBA related Linux video code is being opened up by Splitted Desktop Systems. There's also a PowerVR VA-API driver to be opened...
So the open source version has less functionality and development for at least xvba-video is coming to an end. I fully support Gwenolé Beauchesne, he did amazing things and will probably do amazing things in his future job, but that's hardly good news for (AMD) users. Wish we had proper VDPAU support with radeon already.
So... open source wrapper for a binary blob rather than a binary wrapper for a binary blob. How does this help to get rid of the binary blob?
Answer: it doesn't.
Q is this now the big OSS Release?
What about the gstreamer-vaapi plugin? Is this now going to be moved to the gstreamer repository at freedesktop.org?
Well if your boss is a total bitch, at least you can open source what you can, I suppose... :'P

I get errors when running make.
Libs versions mismatch it seems, maybe has to do with ffmeg git checkout.
Maybe someone had more luck , or is building packages on regular basis?
Yes, running Debian squeeze / sid.
