    Thanks.

    It's been a long time since the KDE VDPAU problem was confirmed. Any plans on fixing that? VDPAU is unusable right now (and has been for a long time.)

    Really? I use both KDE and mplayer+vdpau daily and they work just fine together.
    Occasionally mplayer locks up due to some vdpau quirk, but that's it.

    @Plagman: looks like you are now the nVidia Linux mascot. We need you in a head to head with Linus!
    Any news on the *official * nVidia Linux forum?

    VDPAU has never worked for me. It's this bug:

    http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=173519

    It was confirmed by NVidia back then. But still no fix till this day.

    Still working on the forums; we realize how unfortunate the current situation is right now and are trying to work it out as soon as possible.

    As for the VDPAU / KWin interaction problems, we're currently looking into it and discussing potential solutions with the KWin developers.

    Thanks!

    Some progess, regarding a tear free desktop shoud be top priority, because most opengl DE shows tearing in the upper portion of the screen (KWIN, COMPIZ), using nvidia drivers.

    Hi, I also work on the NVIDIA Linux Graphics team and have been investigating the kwin/VDPAU interaction problems.

    There is an upstream fix for the performance issue described in this link in kde-workspace; see

    https://projects.kde.org/projects/kd...0d7dc5d08401a5

    I have backported this patch to kde-workspace_4.8.4a-0ubuntu0.1; see http://pastebin.com/8DmsyTP7 . I hope this helps!
