I wonder how much the memory on the card matters. When VDPAU first became 
available I recall it was said you needed at least 512MB, I'm not sure if 
this is still true, or if the amount of memory makes a difference in what 
de-interlacers are supported.

Anybody have recent data on the memory requirements for VDPAU?
