Re: Xine vdpau announcement
VDPAU support has now been merged in xine-lib 1.2 branch.
We hope to provide a 1.2rc1 soon.
1) VDPAU is not, and will not be, part of 1.1 because it's not ABI compatible.
2) In order for a frontend to work with 1.2, it only has to be recompiled against it.
3) vdpau_h264 has been reworked and is now more spec compliant, and also better handles streams that are not. In short, it should now work as good as ffmpeg.
