    My card definitely supports it. I can use dxva in windows just fine. I actually did get it to work after a long time messing around with packages and I managed to find the libva-glx package in a ppa. I was able to get vlc to load the video up and have vaapi acceleration enabled but the output was all garbled :/.

    It was just the hd 2900 cards that did not have the capability, they were the first 2xxx card released. other 2xxx cards do have it. In windows 7 I use MPC-HC and dxva is enabled, and 720p videos play with only 2-4% cpu usage.
