Newer ATI cards and Intel ATOM owners on Linux can utilize the VA-API hardware accelerated H.264, WMV3/VC1, MPEG2 and MPEG4 playback using MPlayer.

Instructions can be found at http://www.splitted-desktop.com/~gbeauc ... yer-vaapi/

May be old news... not sure, but worth a mention anyway.

maybe that's why I allways went with nvidia... their drivers work, Ati makes flashy drivers for windows which crachses and bsods, they might be a little bit heavier on the price but it's worth it for that excelent customer support.

everything in all videoplayers and "games" works directly with their linux driver, ati i've had to use bad gnu licensed drivers. heard they've gotten better though :)

Just remember, there is no such thing as a stupid question, until you ask it

There's still issues with ATI+Linux right & left. I stick with nvidia just for that reason, myself.
