Default Re: geforce FX Hardware MPEG-2 Decoder

The geforce4mx and geforcefx contain mpeg2 decoding support (the support in the geforce4ti is less advanced). On linux the mpeg2 decoding isn't automaticly used. To use the mpeg2 decoding capabilities your mediaplayer needs to take advantage of it using the "XvMC" extension. Recent versions of xine and mplayer have an xvmc renderer, so when you use that cpu usage can drop a lot. (Note you need to enable xvmc)
