Also some Intel chips are supported for h264.

I´m new here but I would like to say how awsome you are that you are working on implementing DXVA in XBMC!
Keep up the good work.

if xbmc starts to use dxva will my computer be louder when playing movies because of the graphics card?

But you dont need to use DXVA if you dont want to.

oh right ok, cool, will there be an option to turn it on and turn it off?

Assuming it ever happens, I expect it'll look a bit like VDPAU in linux, where you can choose to use either the videocard or ffmpeg to decode.

Most videocards stay cool with DXVA, it doesn't use shaders.
Although you can enable/disable DXVA in the settings, it will be enabled by default for all compatible files (with a fallback for non-DXVA files) if the current solution is still being considered.
