Many applications can use VDPAU to accelerate portions of the video
decoding process and video post-processing to the GPU video hardware.
Unfortunately, there is no such library for many graphic chipsets.
Some applications also support VA-API but many of them, including
Adobe Flash Player, don't.
This library proposes a generic VDPAU library. It uses OpenGL under
the hood to accelerate drawing and scaling and VA-API (if
available) to accelerate video decoding.
