Exams finished !

Hi there !
I have just finished my exams, an so my academic year is now over. Time to start working full time on my Google Summer of Code project. The purpose of this blog is to keep you posted about my progress. I will write it in english, so I apologize in advance for any errors that may slip into my sentences.
The goal of this project is to write a Gallium3D state tracker capable of hardware accelerated VP8 video decoding through the VDPAU API. This would allow every graphic card with a Gallium3D driver (primary targets are r300g, r600g and Nouveau drivers) to be able to decode VP8 videos, and every VDPAU enabled multimedia software to play these videos.
Hardware acceleration will be built upon graphic card’s shaders units, able to take care of some heavy computations like motion compensation, intra-predictions, iDCT, deblocking filter.
Feel free to contact me at any time if you have any questions or comments about this work !
