Default Re: VDPAU support for 7300GT

W3ird_N3rd,

Yes, XvMC (or at least NVIDIA's implementation) only supports MPEG-2 decoding. Xv is purely a display technology (accelerated uploading of image content to the GPU, with all decode on the CPU), so it should provide some benefit over plain X11 output for any video format.
