Default Re: VDPAU testing tool

The whole point of most (all?) video codecs is that they are lossy, and hence can achieve some compression.

If you want lossless, then I guess you'll have to capture raw RGB images and use e.g. bzip2 to compress them, but the compression rate won't be very good. I don't know if there's really a standard format for this, since practically nobody does this.
