Re: HOWTO: VLC + VAAPI in Maverick
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 :/.
