Bringing up femon on a 1080i channel, it says
MPEG-2 decoding is far less complex than H264 decoding: Every Nvidia VDPAU hardware (except feature set A with very slow CPU, I am speaking about my P3 500) easily succeeds in decoding MPEG2 1080@60 video without skipping frames. I found some uploaded (Asian) TV content that is H264 1080@30 and also decodes without skipping frames on feature set A, B and C hardware.
I still claim that does not work for H264 1080@60 for any current Nvidia VDPAU hardware (but I may be wrong).
