Hi all .....
I have a Hollywood+ mpeg II decoder card and I was
wondering if there is anyway to use it under linux
to play DVD movies ?
I went on SigmaDesign site (the Hollywood card
manufacturer) and I tried to find some kind of driver for
linux but they don't have anything (except for windows)
Can any one tell me if a driver exists for linux ?

                Thanx

                                            Damien

I am working on a project to bring DVD playback support to Linux.  Right
now my project is focused around the DVD add-on card for the Matrox G200
series cards.  http://pulsar.doobie.org (It is down now, but will be up
later today.)  

I was contacted by the head guy at Sigma Designs.  They are very
interested in having their card supported under Linux.  At first it seemed
like we were going to have a joint project, but I have not heard  back
from them in several weeks.  The last message I recieved was that they
were looking into doing the driver themselves.  (That is bad, because it
probably won't abide by the V4L2 API and they'll have to make a release
for every kernel version.)   

The support for reading DVD movies off of DVD drives is still in heavy
development.  My initial goal is to read an MPEG-II off the hard drive and
have it displayed out the TV-Out module, then loop it into my TV card.
This way I don't have to debug an application and a driver at the same
time.  

-Matt

Hello Mathew,
Any expected release date for a test version of the player?  I think it is
going to be immensely popular once released.
Thanks.

Well the card isn't released yet.  Big new today: I got the docs from
Zoran.  THere is a skeleton driver out, and we hope to have an alpha
driver ready when the card is released in mid-march.  

I need help, if anyone is good with C let me know.

Well, the inital player is going to be XawTV .  I will be looping the
video signal from the TV-OUt of the G200 into the TV Card.  The data is
going to be MPEG-II off a hard drive at first.  There is still work to be
done on UDF, not to mention I don't have a DVD drvie yet.
