With the interface changes to xvmc I'm finally happy with the xvmc decoder,
so if you have a nv40-nv96 or a nva0 spare, could you test
http://repo.or.cz/w/mesa/nouveau-pmpeg.git and report the results?
To get it working correctly you need to preload libXvMCnouveau.so,
usually programs that use XvMC use a wrapper, which makes it slightly easier:
echo /path/to/libXvMCnouveau.so | sudo tee /etc/X11/XvMCConfig
Otherwise you will probably need to add libXvMCnouveau.so to LD_PRELOAD
The acceleration only works for xvmc, a simple way to use it with mpeg1/mpeg2
files is this:
mplayer -vo xvmc -vc ffmpeg12mc myvideo.mpg
I want to merge this code with mesa, but first I need to know it works correctly.
