I have my work on the nv vpe video decoder in a functional
state. In case you didn't know this decoder accelerates mpeg2
video at the idct/mc level. I have verified that it works on
nv40 hardware. I believe it works on nv30 hardware (and
maybe some earlier hardware), but I cannot verify since I have
I will reply with patches against the kernel, drm, ddx
and mesa for your review. Any comments are welcome.
An important note is that the performance isn't that
great in my opinion. There is something preventing the nv vpe
engine from rendering cmds at the same rate as the blob. Either
caching or whatever.
