    I did a Search but apologies in advance if it's a repost.

    Mod's, feel free to move, delete, deride etc. :)

    I've toyed with it for awhile but the alpha quality gui is an annoyance.

    It seems that a big part of the appeal is the elimination of tearing. That really isn't an issue for me.

    It is great that ffdshow can be used as a post processor and that the front end also allows one to choose the video and audio renderers.

    The thread gets interesting, in a 3d way, if you stick with it.

    The zoomplayer developer has some interesting things to say. Check their forum out too.

    Wave of the future?

    Looks interesting for when it moves to a release version. I'd be interested in checking it out then, that's for sure. :)

    I'd imagine the 3D programmable HW would be of more use for encoding (eg motion vector searches) than for decoding.

    I'll endeavor to post here if there is a major update of the situation.

    My understanding is that the big players in this arena could be moving towards this solution.

    It would seem that the dude responsible for the proggie has taken his ideas to TheaterTek. It also seems that it won't be too long before TheaterTek is sporting an advanced version of his design as part of their player.
