seems a shame especially with the market share of ATI has. im sure this would please many many people to get this final issue solved .

I have checked the ticket with 24p-bug and there seems to be a solution.

killa-sample plays perfectly smooth on my nvidia system which does also just support level 4.1. VDPAU just ignores this parameter whereas I get an error from xvba.
Maybe xvba plays it so badly just why it is told it can't

See how it works on my xvba (Fusion E350), smooth but the pixels are a big mess ... video here
1080p runs ok, but stutters a little, like the other sample in the video above.

I have seen that but I would say it looks much better on my Zbox AD02. I have artifacts too but I can at least see that its birds flying there.
(no pixel errors on nvidia)
Hope I can get it work on ati as well.

Aha! do you have tutorial how to set up vaapi on AD02? I posted mine here, that is how I got this video quality.
Would you tell me what am I missing?
P.S. same video playback on XBMC, MPLAYER, VLC.

I use both libva and xvba from splitted-desktop. Not sure what you get when just installing packages.
Did you remove Unity or made sure not to start it? I still use Ubuntu 10.10

I'll test this fix on my Zacate later on
if it works -> HowTo

Some patches Fernetmenta made are available in openelec. This: https://github.com/OpenELEC/OpenELEC.tv/commit/07869526b0fe8f20be59627868aa3b50fa5ece52
and this one: https://github.com/OpenELEC/OpenELEC.tv/commit/39e737dcb4fdd0081ad8a1bc06c84f4ce46ba013
Those patches make openelec the best option now for easy use of XBMC on Zacate. The last patch also is in XBMC trunk: https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/commit/ec1f1578e335b515a8670a7b636dc6869b14bea2
And the general discussion about VAAPI-related development: http://trac.xbmc.org/ticket/11576
So things are looking great for XBMC and AMD (zacate) thanks to fernetmenta and Sraue.
