On Poulsbo? Yes.
So far, only the following codecs are supported at VLD level: MPEG-2,
MPEG-4, H.263, H.264, VC-1 (and WMV3 variants). I don't think there are

MPEG-2 acceleration at motion compensation level. ;-)

against FFmpeg SVN):
This depends on this version of VA API:
This is also getting integrated upstream. Actually, most of the patches
were integrated today.
