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