Ok, put another way: does VDPAU correctly produce interlaced output,
or does it have the same problem that nVidia's Xv has? Specifically
can it correctly produce interlaced output of 576i/480i? Or is
there some reason I'm missing that this is a silly question? I
know it's mainly for MPEG4 but I'm wondering whether it also
in some ways does a better job of MPEG2.
