So far getting vdpau to work on Gentoo wasn't that difficult.

Overlay vdr-xine was used and then emerged xine-lib-1.2 to bring the
library up to speed. After that I pulled vdr-xineliboutput from cvs.
Compiled and it worked great especially deinterlacing! Only jaw
dropping experience there.

I have before got accustomed to using the cropping feature from
vdr-xineliboutput plugin. Crop converts a 4:3 input to 16:9 format. In
the README it states:


  All video scaling, cropping, and postprocessing options must be disabled
  if the VDPAU output device is used.
  De-interlacing can be enabled with command-line option --post tvtime:
    vdr-sxfe --video vdpau --post tvtime:method=use_vo_driver
    vdr -P"xineliboutput --video=vdpau --post=tvtime:method=use_vo_driver"

In the mean time, I have seen some patches floating on german speaking
forums on how to get cropping feature to work with vdpau. Does seem to give
the impression that it is doable. But I'm having trouble translating
that into.. well meaning full non-german speaking end-user noob.

Is there anybody that could explain where these patches fit in?

I use vdr-xineliboutput, pulled in from cvs and tried to apply the
patch   xineliboutput-1.0.4-vdpau-support-v8.diff and failed. perhaps
command line incorrect? any examples?

I don't know how to patch xine-lib either, Gentoo pulls in
xine-lib-1.2 from
The first line in the diff file for xine-lib is for vdr.h, which I
cannot find. The find utility only returns


So I'm stuck, any other Gentoo users here that got those patches working?
