30 <para>
31 The <application>libvdpau</application> package contains a library which
32 implements the VDPAU library.
33 </para>
34
35 <para>
36 VDPAU (Video Decode and Presentation API for Unix) is an open source
37 library (libvdpau) and API originally designed by Nvidia for its GeForce
38 8 series and later GPU hardware targeted at the X Window System
39 This VDPAU API allows video programs to offload portions of the video
40 decoding process and video post-processing to the GPU video-hardware.
41 </para>
42
43 <para>
44 Currently, the portions capable of being offloaded by VDPAU onto the GPU
45 are motion compensation (mo comp), inverse discrete cosine transform
46 (iDCT), VLD (variable-length decoding) and deblocking for MPEG-1, MPEG-2,
47 MPEG-4 ASP (MPEG-4 Part 2), H.264/MPEG-4 AVC and VC-1, WMV3/WMV9 encoded
48 videos. Which specific codecs of these that can be offloaded to the
49 GPU depends on the version of the GPU hardware; specifically,
50 to also decode MPEG-4 ASP (MPEG-4 Part 2), Xvid/OpenDivX (DivX 4), and
51 DivX 5 formats, a GeForce 200M (2xxM) Series (the eleventh generation of
52 Nvidia's GeForce graphics processing units) or newer GPU hardware is
53 required.
