I misinterpreted; I assumed this was about XvBA backend support through VAAPI because that's what this topic is about, which has been available for at least a year but wasn't included in main stable releases, apparently due to problems I've never experienced myself.
I didn't know XvBA was gonna be implemented directly, putting VAAPI offside, until I googled what you said. Sounds good, no more splitted-desktop drivers and wrappers.
pjohn07 need not be sad about Eden lacking this for now. I tried the XvBA-VAAPI build of OpenELEC from december 17th and it's even faster than my current installed XBMC, using that new video option I haven't got yet, what was it called, something something surfaces.
For manual installation of direct XvBA XBMC, check this repository:
