Re: VDPAU support for 7300GT
To be fair, Windows Vista didn't have a super-accelerated video reproduction here either (GeForce 6150). What I DO expect is: HW-accelerated MPEG-2 reproduction (and I didn't have it in Vista either, so I won't cry). And AFAIK that is what XvMC is for.
On the other hand, VDPAU flies in my relatively old 8500 (~30% CPU usage with 1080p video)
