utilising the hw mpeg decoder than using libddmpeg. For instance there
is no need to run applications with root privileges to utilise said
Are there any plans to implement such code within mythtv? I would have
though that this would be semi trivial since support for nvidia XvMC is

Support for via_v4l_drv/libddmpeg seems to be broken with the latest drm

Moreover support for libddmpeg will probably be removed from these
drivers at some point anyway so I think would be worth adding such code.
