there is an xbmc developer working on hardware acceleration as a GSoC project and there is a topic in the linux dev forum, but don't ask for any updates there because they will rip your head off....

For anyone playing with this right now, the out of order frames is a known issue that is being worked on "temporal misordering of frames". Also, even though the profiles should support it, the driver is limited to *4* reference frames at any resolution. If you try to play something with more, it will play until the point the 5th frame is referenced regardless of how many decoded playback buffer surfaces you have allocated.
Who is in charge of xbmc's ffmpeg syncs btw?

Browsing AreaScout's branch might give you a clue...

a simple ffmpeg update will not be sufficient to get this working.

Damn it, I thought I merged all of these threads into one...

Yes but isn't that code specifically for the ffmpeg guys and not the xbmc code? He might develop for "US" too but i am almost certain it's all for ffmpeg.

i don't know, I think it's for xbmc, cause otherwise why would he have done the google summer of code for xbmc and not for ffmpeg? i'm pretty sure ffmpeg was an option as well

Maybe if we all threw money into a big pot and held it over some dev's head it would get things done faster
Either way i have 2-3 months before I build a pc for dedicated XBMC use...i can wait and see what happens
