    OK guys is this the best I can get for GPU acceleration of MKV and Xvid AVI movies?

    What I am trying to do is put most of the load on the gpu vs my cpu.

    Already checked, only thing that was found is color and gamma settings. Hmmm...

    Any other thoughts guys? ;)

    the *only* program that provides acceleration for MKV files is VLC. YOu need it in direct3D mode, and enable the hardware acceleration options. This is only partial acceleration - it halved my CPU usage which is better than nothing, but real acceleration is 0% CPU usage.

    Problem is, VLC cant handle digital audio atm - so if you use digital outputs, you're screwed.

    That's what I thought, but also not using the onboard sound rather the video cards HDMI sound you would think GPU acceleration would be greater.

    Surprised though Mussells that I got it to work that well with MCHC? ;)

    Yeah doing so as we speak. I tried searching for it but forgot the title.

    EDIT:
    Trying not to double post-

    With your help Mussells I did obtain this:
