windows media player 12 by default seems to have some sort of hardware acceleration for nvidia cards with the vp1 processor on them, but i tried this the other day, and i was getting lotsa decoding errors.
whats the deal with that?
anyone else get this?

the pc im using here has an athlon x2 3800+ and a 7800gtx

I don't know what hardware acceleration for H.264/AVC WMP12 has on VP1. It definitely supports the bitstream mode on VP2 and later.

I wouldn't expect VP1 to be supported as it only supports motion compensation.
