X-Video Bitstream Acceleration (XvBA), designed by AMD for its ATI/AMD Radeon
GPU, is a future extension of the X video extension (Xv) for the X Window
System on Linux operating-systems. XvBA API allows video programs to offload
portions of the video decoding process to the GPU video-hardware. Currently,
the portions designed to be offloaded by XvBA onto the GPU are motion
compensation (mo comp) and inverse discrete cosine transform (iDCT), and VLD
(Variable-Length Decoding) for MPEG-2, MPEG-4 AVC (H.264) and VC-1 encoded
This driver only works with the proprietary fglrx driver from AMD.

xvba-video (0.8.0-9+deb8u1) jessie; urgency=medium
