from the Slashdot article:
"Phoronix is reporting on a new Linux driver nVidia is about to release that brings PureVideo features to Linux.
This new API is named VDPAU, and is described as: '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."
