Since I am seriously interested in video acceleration on the 6000 and have no time to look at it in details (I've never played with that), I would like to create a "bounty" which could be used to motivate the development of "decent" video acceleration.
By decent, I mean for both 2.4 and 2.6:
- kernel support for the various accels available, with sample code for each acceleration (to ease integration into applications)
- faster scroll speed in text more (try dmesg and cry)
- a plugin for mplayer to have hi-res video support (538x400 is ok)
- libsdl tweaks to give a good speed to emulators (with 640x480 and 480x320 mode)
I would glady give 100 Eur to see such features. mahadri or anyone else could be interested if more people could donate.
How I see this - we publically say how much we will give for this feature, and post a total. When that happen, we keep our promise - it'd be simply based on trust.
So if you want to play hires divx on your 6000 or play games, like a 3100 can, please also offer something.
