Nouveau NV50 Enables H.264 Decoding
Phoronix: Nouveau NV50 Enables H.264 Decoding
A patch has been sent out by Nouveau contributor Ilia Mirkin that now enables H.264 video capabilities within the NV50 Gallium3D graphics driver for VP3/VP4 hardware...
Michael, you missed the follow-up patch to enable MPEG-4 too.
H-264 still shows some corruption on some videos so the support is not perfect yet but it is getting there.
Kuddos to Ilia!
It's also been committed to mesa 10.0
