XvBA
X-Video Bitstream Acceleration (XvBA), designed by AMD Graphics for its Radeon GPU and Fusion APU, is an arbitrary 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 currently motion compensation (MC) and inverse discrete cosine transform (IDCT), and variable-length decoding (VLD) for MPEG-2, MPEG-4 ASP (MPEG-4 Part 2, including Xvid, and older DivX and Nero Digital), MPEG-4 AVC (H.264), WMV3, and VC-1 encoded video.
XvBA is a Linux equivalent of Microsoft's DirectX Video Acceleration (DxVA) API for Windows and a direct competitor to NVIDIA's Video Decode and Presentation API for Unix (VDPAU) and Intel's Video Acceleration API (VAAPI).
In November 2009 a XvBA backend for Video Acceleration API (VA API) was released, which means any software that supports VA API will also support XvBA.
On 24 February 2011, an official XvBA SDK (Software Development Kit) was publicly released alongside a suite of open source tools by AMD.

Catalyst : Loud fans on a 6370M laptop even while using xvba acceleration
Hi I encounter very loud fans even playing simple 480p videos on fglrx...I have enabled XvBA and have double checked the status in VLC and Mplayer-Vaapi builds. Also XBMC-XvBA branch doesnt seem to help much :( . This is the only major issue I am stumbling and makes me go back to Windows (quiet even when playing full 1080p) just for the sake of playing videos without my laptop sounding like a jet engine... I have double checked CPU utilization in top which shows around 15-10% cpu usage
