I'm really hoping we see this support down the line in XBMC. Great work so far!

Strange, I've thought it's for OSX as well...

Its Brisbane iirc, shouldnt make any difference - GPU is doing the donkey work.

Thanks for confirming that motd2k, and by the way, congrats/thanks for the progress you've made so far on the VDPAU integration.
I've been an xbmc user on xbox for years, just putting together a htpc now and to me, things in development like GPU acceleration and the PVR frontend are the icing on an already super-tasty cake that all the devs have put so much into over the years...

killa at 30 percent cpu on atom330 with nvidia 8400.. very cool.
some frame stutter going on with some 720p content. jumping back and forth a few seconds as it plays.

Thats great to hear davilla, thanks for testing it. I'm working on the frameskipping right now, and should hopefully get the mpeg/vc1 decoding working soonish too.

If anyone care to clarify, I thought that the purevideo only could decode certain profiles, and that the killasample was non-compatible?

Now NVIDIA go go and bring me my ION platform This will be the perfect xbox replacement - low power, small and if there is a perfect platform right from the get-go most probably a nice community that will create the ultimate fastboot-linux OS for xbmc to run on.
*rubs his hands in excitement*
Those pictures illustrate quite nicely what I have in mind

I know on Windows the latest drivers have enabled L5.1 dxva decoding so im assuming linux is the same.
Also with dxva on the latest MPC-HD it tries to decode a H264 even if the profile in the video stream is not compatible since most h264's are incorrectly tagged as L5.1
Is that a Nvidia Ion system that you have tried this on. If so then I thought it was a 9400 not 8400. Which is even better as the 9400 is HD Purevideo v3 which has better VC-1 hardware support.

killasampla works without any issues in my mplayer-vdpau
