Default VDPAU Documentation ERROR

There is a confusing error in the VDPAU documentation, which needs to be corrected.

On this page, there is the following text:
Quote:
For each call to VdpDecoderRender, the field to be processed should be provided as the video_surface_current parameter.

To enable operation of advanced de-interlacing algorithms and/or post-processing algorithms, some past and/or future surfaces should be provided as context. These are provided in the video_surface_past and video_surface_future lists. ...
All of that description is for VdpVideoMixerRender, not VdpDecoderRender as given. Please correct this at some point.

Thanks

I would have assumed it was obvious; I work on VDPAU and couldn't help anyone on other issues. Sorry.

Default Re: VDPAU Documentation ERROR

Here's another tiny documentation error to fix:

The threading pseudo-code mid-way down the main VDPAU documentation page shows two threads, but has them both labelled as thread_1().

This should get changed to use different names, such as thread_1() and thread_2() instead.

Cheers
