I propose to move comparison tables below all other sections with following section structure:

  1. Installation
    1. Intel
    2. NVIDIA
    3. ATI/AMD
    4. Translation layers
  2. Verification
    1. Verifying VA-API
    2. Verifying VDPAU
  3. Configuration
    1. Configuring VA-API
    2. Configuring VDPAU
  4. Troubleshooting
    1. Failed to open VDPAU backend
    2. VAAPI init failed
  5. Comparison table
    1. VA-API drivers
    2. VDPAU drivers
    3. NVDEC/NVENC drivers
    4. Software support

Intention is not to bombard the reader with unnecessary extra information from the start. Comparison tables provide comprehensive overview of all drivers but with installation section having correct instruction for each GPU type and verification section providing relevant information for specific GPU one has this information might be redundant.

I think the idea was to help user choose which backend to use depending on their hardware and software preferences. If you rewrite it this way, make sure to add link at the beginning to the comparison table when people need to choose between different implementations. Archange (talk) 10:26, 23 December 2018 (UTC)
