VDPAU: Expose HEVC Main10 support where available on-die

It’s been several years since Nvdia has said anything about this. Is there any update on the internal issue numbers 1617735 and/or 1632828? Is this functionality on any roadmap or planning?

Initial support for 10-bit decoding was just released in the 450.51 beta driver:

  • Added HEVC 10/12 bit “decode only” support to the NVIDIA VDPAU driver. Note that VDPAU’s presentation pipeline and OpenGL-VDPAU interop does not support 10- and 12-bit video surfaces yet. See the “VDPAU Support” appendix in the README for supported HEVC decoder profiles.
