Default Re: Please add MPEG-4 AVC part 10 (h.264) XvMC acceleration

It is sad for me too. Till now XvMC MPEG-2 for me was enough - I watched DVDs and DVB-T. Now .gov said the DVB-T in Poland will use MPEG-4 AVC part 10 (h.264) for all broadcasters because MPEG-2 is not compressed enough to cover all vanishing analog stations. So in short time everyone switched from MPEG-2 to MPEG-4 AVC part 10 (h.264) and I lost XvMC acceleration because of unsupported format by Nvidia XvMC library.

I like to watch TV and DVD in window when I work. Especially news. MPEG-4 eats too much CPU power to watch TV as before. I can try to upgrade my CPU but GPU will offload this in much better way. For example playing DVD on XvMC uses only 2-3% of CPU and CPU usage boost spikes during working are not stuttering playback.
