    Yves,
    Using the mplayer I built with the above mentioned script, Xv works. Full screen stops at the first frame, but windowed works well. No hang at all. Have you tried building mplayer?

    vaapi is working here. Amazing good quality, source is a 720p high bitrate h264 clip

    only Xv hangs.

    mplayer with -vo x11 works fine too (slow as expected)

    @jbernardo

    we should also remove compiz dependency in poulsbo-config when we have xorg patched

    @lucazade
    Yes, as soon as the packages are built in the ppa we need to start working on poulsbo-config, not only for that but also to remove the ShadowFB entry from xorg.conf

    BTW, are you sure compiz will work? The psb driver still supports OpenGL 1.2 only.

    I really can't get Xv to hang here. Can you point me to a freely available clip that hangs for you, so that I could use it to try to reproduce this problem?

    Haven't tried the exa patch yet, so i don't know about compiz (probably it won't work.. you're right)
    Yes, shadowfb should be removed from poulsbo-config.

    In launchpad ppa xorg-server-psb has a wrong versioning (0.36) should be 0.32something)

    First of all ... THANK YOU!!! you are the best!

    My question now:
    what will work in lucid?
    fullscreen video (with vaapi)?
    3d?
    compiz?

    and can you tell, when it will be ready to use in your ppa?

    You're much better then INTEL ... I - personaly - think that we won't see a driver soon ...

    First, what works:
    Full screen vaapi accelerated video - yes, use this script from kanotix to build and install mplayer, add "export GMA500_WORKAROUND=yes" to your .bashrc, and it should work. I usually also disable composite while playing a film (ctrl-alt-F12 in kde), as it interferes somewhat.
    3D - yes, OpenGL 1.2 is supported by the xpsb binary blob

    Problematic
    Compiz - probably won't work, it seems to need OpenGL 1.3+

    The ppa - we'll get it to build ASAP. It seems I had forgotten to push the code, I expected bzr to work as svn and to push the code itself after a commit...
