Hardware Video Decode and OpenGL Video Texturing for Linux

VDPAU (Video Decode and Presentation API for Unix) allows Linux systems to offload portions of video decode to the GPU. The resulting video can be post-processed with OpenGL, CUDA, or both. Watch Stephen Warren from NVIDIA explain VDPAU and demonstrate OpenGL texturing of hardware-decoded video frames. Slides (PDF) are also available.
