the world cup is almost finished now :-)
For us (France) the WC even didn't start really ;-)
I can help and try to test this also myself if this could be usefull as i have
the appropriate HW.
What would be the steps in order to be able to test this?
xserver intel 2.12
mythtv the latest 0.23 build from daily auto builds
i915 intel module for i3 530

A further post in the thread pointed out that Vaapi only works on some
quite new Intel chipsets, and does not work on the 945 series (much like
VDPAU does not work on pre-8xxx series nvidia chipsets).
So I cannot test the vaapi beta. And I have not found the time to do a
parallel install to test xvmc with the latest 2.11 series intel driver.
Been too busy every night watching the World Cup in HD!
