REQ: ARGB support for Xv blitter
Would nVidia consider adding a ARGB mode to the video blitter? As I understand it, right now there is support for an "XRGB" which means the upper 8-bits do nothing.
A tremendous number of video applications use an On-Screen-Display and typically the OSD is alpha-blended using host CPU into the video frame. Unfortunately, at HDTV resolutions the alpha blending becomes too CPU intensive resulting in dropped video frames. nVidia could easily solve this problem for us!
I know nVidia Linux team has a policy of not commenting on potential features or drivers, but will someone notify me if this is even being considered?
