Re: 10-bit color and VDPAU
It's not about 10bit colors. But about 10bit internal encoder/decoder precision. And they're not at all morons for going this route, 10bit help a lot with gradients and preventing banding, so anime is pretty much the biggest benefactor of it.
That said, it would be nice if VDPAU could play 10bit videos. Are you sure it can't?
@jlippo: Decoding is done on dedicated chips, not with cuda. The only thing that happens with shaders is post-processing, meaning the presentation part of VDPAU.
