Heh... The VBO problems are going to be obnoxious. The FBO stuff may be related to the fact that the Vista/XP drivers didn't have pretty much any of that properly implemented when they shipped (and I think it's still not 100% there on those platforms...).

Thanks for the pointer - I read that thread too. ;-)

BTW I really do mean thanks for the pointer - you've been a star helping people out on the list!
Xv is the standard interface for accelerated video scaling. Many applications depend on it, there's no excuse for not having it nowadays. It's faster than OpenGL in most cases, too.

Doesn't hurt to check settings :
- for 5xx and above cores (including RS690) you want "Video Overlay" off and "Textured Video" on -- I don't think the "OpenGL Overlay" setting matters but not 100% sure
If you are having DRM/OpenGL config problems fix those first, since you won't get video acceleration unless the 3d stack is working properly
- for pre-5xx cores (including RS480) you want "Textured Video" off, Video Overlay" on, and "OpenGL Overlay" off.
Pre-5xx video is, afaik, independent of the DRM/3d stack.

I think we're saying the same thing, except you're seeing that on the 2600 "opengl is faster but not as good quality" ? That may be correct -- what I was trying to say was "textured video should be faster for the same amount of video processing / quality" or something like that, since that's where we put the video-specific code.
On the X200M (RS4xx) I think the recommended settings would be "Textured everything" off and "Video Overlay" on. Textured Video really became a focus with the 5xx+ parts AFAIK. Are you saying that "opengl 2d-tex-fragprog works faster" on x200m than xv with the overlay, or just faster than xv with Textured Video ?
