Default Hardware MPEG2 DECODER GE4MX

What's the story on the Hardware MPEG2 decode on the GeForce 4 MX chips? Is this supported in the linux driver? If so, how is it accessed?

Default

There's support for the mpeg2 decoder of Geforce4MX, GeforceFX cards and Geforce4Ti cards. (the gf4ti's mpeg2 decoder is less advanced)

Support for the decoder is provided using a new library called XvMC. To use the decoder you need to use a media player that supports XvMC. Recent (cvs) versions of both Xine and Mplayer support XvMC. Ofcourse you need to tell the player to use it. When you use it, it can decrease cpu utilization a lot. (depending on the case)
