    Funny, I was just about to ask the same question.

    Default JPEG decoding?

    Is that really necessary?

    If it includes MJPEG, then yes, it's pretty good. While MJPEG is not a good format for final videos, it works well as an intermediate format as its encoders can write good quality videos at a really good speed and relatively fair compression (as opposed to things like Huff). And being able to watch what you recorded before transcoding is always a good thing to have.

    Pardon my ignorance but are Sandy bridge IGPs /APUs reached by this VA-API update?
    If not, means the next Intel open-source driver will concern only Ivy units - Or is the code shared with Sandy?
