Current status of VDPAU on r600g?
After the news that AMD will stop supporting all DX10-generation cards (with Catalyst) on Windows/Linux, I'd like to give another try to the FOSS radeon drivers (even if the PM is not working very well) on my radeon HD4650 AGP, but before that, I'd like to ask a few qustions about VDPAU:
1) How's the current status of VDPAU support with r600g? In radeon feature matrix, they say it's still a WIP, but... Can I use it with H.264 videos or it currently only works with MPEG-2 videos?
2) If r600g VDPAU already works with H.264, how can I enable that support on mesa (mesa configure options)?
3) Can I use mesa stable / master branch or do I need a special branch to use VDPAU? Do I need to create any kind of symlinking or can I expect it to work properly just installing mesa?
I hope someone can help me with these steps.
p.s.: Distro I'm using: ArchLinux i686
