Default Re: Hardware acceleration for Linux?

xine also uses XvMC.

xine -V xvmc

but if you watch DVDs there is no subtitles.
Download and install XvMC wrapper: libXvMCW library from to have menu and subtitles displayed.
after recompiling xine-lib you can use it:
xine -V xxmc

Of course you do not have to use these parameters. They can be configured as default video device in Video configuration tab of xine.

However the video quality is not so high as in purevideo decoder because full purevideo is not supported in Linux. Only hardware acceleration of MPEG-2 works.
