"The Video Decode and Presentation API for Unix (VDPAU) provides a complete solution for decoding, post-processing, compositing, and displaying compressed or uncompressed video streams. These video streams may be combined (composited) with bitmap content, to implement OSDs and other application user interfaces."

I started using it last night after reading about it.

 

I was able to remove a few start up workarounds I had been using Glypgcache and pixmaplacement settings in autostart that worked around issues with the older drivers. These settings are built into the driver now. :tup:

 

Much better performance and better rendering when using compositing.
