Default h.264 hardware acceleration

hey folks, I saw on another thread some guys who are using Windows that they are able to use the built in h.264 hardware acceleration on nvidia cards.

are we able use this hardware feature too in linux when playing h.264 files?

Default Re: h.264 hardware acceleration

This has been discussed on this forum many times.
The latest reaction from an nvidia employee I have seen is that there are no immediate plans to enhance the functionality of XvMC (which would include support for H.264 and/or improved de-interlacing, features available in the Windows PureVideo drivers but not in the Linux drivers).

So, unless this is going to change I think we should not expect anything :-(
It looks like 3D is a more profitable feature than video... all emphasis is on better 3D.

Maybe finishing off DX10 development for 8XXX under Windows (the primary goal seemingly) they will go to the second best things like video hopefully under Linux too...
