Default Re: Pure video = VDPAU ?

This isn't making sense!

* GeForce M (formerly known as GeForce Go)
* NVIDIA Quadro

Now with an NVIDIAŽ GeForceŽ 6 or GeForce 7 Series-powered PC and NVIDIA’s advanced PureVideo™ technology, you can easily and affordably take advantage of the latest high definition video content. Here is a sampling of widely available HD content:

That to me says that purevideo playback of H.264, VC-1 and MP4 is supported by GeForce (and presumably GeForce 6200). So the GeForce 6200 can do it?!?

edit: I think the issue is there are TWO forms of pure video : PureVideo & PureVideoHD
This link shows 6200 can support PureVideo:

All I am after is support for PureVideo on a 6200 in Linux (it is available on Windows...). I thought VDPAU could provide this. I don't need PureVideo HD (not available for 6 series).
