Default Re: No XVMC with 8500 and 100.14.03 Beta

Anyway, I feel disturbance in the Force here...two posts:

@netllama: "There is currently no XVMC support for G8x based cards."
@support mail:
"There are no definite plans at this time to provide XVMC support for the 8000 series graphics cards."

So this is low priority for a "long-long" time. You bought your brand new card with big marketing accentuated on HDCP/HW decoding, and now finally you can say bye-bye to HW accelerated mpeg2 you got in your older card. Pretty sure the budget is cut down on desktop linux as always workstation linux is the priority. All right, got used to it. You can say now 8XXX is not for multimedia but gaming under Linux, if noone assures another priority here.
