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

With my AMD 2500+ CPU and a FX5200 GPU, I need XVmC in order to play back HDTV without glitches if there's the slightest hint of anything else going on in the system.

I'm heard something about nVidia changing XVmC in newer GPUs in a way that Myth doesn't support, and since people with newer GPUs tend to have faster CPUs, there hasn't been much concern among the developers to fix it. Hence, the 5200 is often cited as the best performing video card for use with Myth.

(At least that's what I've gathered from reading the mailing lists.)
