Video Decode and Presentation API for Unix is an open source library and API to offload portions of the video decoding process and video post-processing to the GPU video-hardware.

Supported hardware

Open source drivers:

  • NVIDIA GeForce 400 series and newer GPUs are supported by the nouveau-dri package, available in the official repositories. It uses the nouveau-fwAUR package, which contains the required firmware to operate that is presently extracted from the NVIDIA binary driver.

Proprietary drivers:

Supported formats

ati-dri libvdpau-va-glAUR with libva-intel-driver nouveau-dri libvdpau-va-glAUR with libva-xvba-driverAUR nvidia-utils
MPEG2 decoding AMD Radeon 9500 and newer Intel GMA 4500 and newer Nvidia GeForce 400 and newer AMD Radeon HD 4000 and newer Nvidia GeForce 8 and newer
MPEG4 decoding AMD Radeon HD 6000 and newer - Nvidia GeForce 400 and newer AMD Radeon HD 6000 and newer Nvidia GeForce 200 and newer
H264 decoding AMD Radeon HD 4000 and newer Intel GMA 45001, Ironlake Graphics and newer Nvidia GeForce 400 and newer AMD Radeon HD 4000 and newer Nvidia GeForce 8 and newer
VC1 decoding AMD Radeon HD 4000 and newer Intel Sandy Bridge Graphics and newer Nvidia GeForce 400 and newer AMD Radeon HD 4000 and newer Nvidia GeForce 8 and newer

1Supported by the libva-driver-intel-g45-h264 package. See H.264 decoding on GMA 4500 for instructions and caveats.

Configuration

The libvdpau-va-glAUR driver (for Intel Graphics or AMD Catalyst) needs to be enabled manually. To enable it, create the following file:

/etc/profile.d/vdpau_vaapi.sh
#!/bin/sh
export VDPAU_DRIVER=va_gl

make it executable:

# chmod +x /etc/profile.d/vdpau_vaapi.sh

and reboot or relogin.

In order to check what features are supported by your GPU, run the following command, which provided by the vdpauinfoAUR package:

$ vdpauinfo

Supported software

Adobe Flash Player

In order to enable hardware based video decoding, add the following line to the /etc/adobe/mms.cfg file:

EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=1

MPlayer

Install mplayer or mplayer2AUR package, available in the official repositories.

$ mplayer -vo vdpau, -vc ffmpeg12vdpau,ffwmv3vdpau,ffvc1vdpau,ffh264vdpau,ffodivxvdpau, foobar.mpeg
Warning: The ffodivxvdpau codec is only supported by the most recent series of NVIDIA hardware. Consider omitting it based on your specific hardware.
  • -vo - Select vdpau video output driver
  • -vc - Select vdpau video codecs

MPlayer based players:

  • gnome-mplayer: to enable hardware acceleration: Edit -> Preferences -> Player, then set Video Output to "vdpau".
  • smplayer: to enable hardware acceleration: Options -> Preferences -> General -> Video, then set Output driver to "vdpau".

VLC media player

Install vlc package, available in the official repositories.

To enable hardware acceleration: Tools -> Preferences -> Input & Codecs, then set Hardware-accelerated decoding to "Video Decode and Presentation API for Unix (VDPAU)".
