Dear Friends,

i'm realy nerved about the current situation that high performance onbard graphic cards are not supported in mythtv for Hardware acceleration.

Herefore i had the idea instead of buying a new graphic card to refund a defined amount of money to that dude that implements VAAPI Support for LiveTV on Mythtv.

Instead of spending 70$ for a new graphic card i've decided to refund a certain amount of Bucks to that guy that brings full VAAPI support to mtytv.

Hi,

I'm not sure if it'll bring anything. Most of the dev's program what they want/need rather than what end users want.

Most open source programmers don't do it for the money (usually there isn't any). There are many reasons someone invests time in open source (In the case of MythTV the one above is the most important).

Is the VAAPI api actually fixed/stable?

It is fixed and running super fast on my onboard chip.
