    Unhappy So... no hardware video playback acceleration in Lucid?

    A month ago I've made this post:
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1447595
    hoping that it would change something with the respect to video playback acceleration in Ubuntu for the 10.04 release.

    Today I installed the latest Ubuntu, added VLC and... the acceleration is not there. When I compiled VLC myself on 9.04 I had a checkbox to enable hardware acceleration in the FFMPEG codec settings but this checkbox is not present in the VLC that was downloaded to my 10.04 by default.

    So... am I doing something wrong or is the hardware acceleration simply not there? And what do I have to do to enable it?

    Is FFmpeg in 10.04 compiled with VAAPI support?
    Is VLC in 10.04 compiled with VAAPI support?

    Do I need to recompile both or just on of them?

    Please help, because I have just updated my system and now I'm not able to watch the family movies from my HD camcorder.

    Seems my solution is here:

    Installed and it works. It's just a pity that I had to spend half a day looking for it. Really wish it was included in the default packages...
