Default Would it be possible to have good 2d with nv ?


I am not interested in 3d and currently the nv driver lacks (or I miss something, from what I have understood only nvidia driver support xvmc) mpeg2 decompression helper.

Would it be completely unreasonnable for nvidia to gives enough specs to include a decent 2d (meaning good mpeg 2/x264 decompression with deinterlacing) for adding it to the nv driver ?

Before having a nvidia card, I was always using matrox one, and I really miss the "real" fb I cannot have anymore with nvidia.

Currently the only good solution for 2d under linux are Via Epia cards which I found rather unpleasant
