Is it possible to get hardware video acceleration in Linux? I have tried just about every setting I can think of, without success.
It seems clear that I need to enable textured video in xorg, and disable videooverlay and opengloverlay. But no matter how I set Myth, it either gives a green screen (opengl1), a blank screen (opengl2), or plays the video with a pegged CPU (Qt).
This happens with the AMD 7990 and R9-290X, both the fastest video cards in the world. My 7 year old nvidia 9300 was doing better than this.
I thought these cards are supposed to have hardware mpeg2 and h.264 decode? Does it not work in the Linux proprietary driver? (v 13.8-beta1-3)
