It definitely is - at least if you use the XFree86 CVS tree with just
the ATI video extensions imported from Gatos. I've used the YUV
hardware for half-accelerated DVD playing ("half-accelerated" only
because the chip can really do MC too, but ATI doesn't document how to
do it, so it only does the YUV conversion).
I've not figured out why the ATI Xv stuff from gatos seems to not have
made it into the XFree86 CVS tree - it works better than much of the Xv
stuff for some other chipsets that _are_ in the CVS tree.
I imported it into the XFree86 CVS some months ago, it was trivial. I
don't have the patches lying around any more, though. I can try to
re-create them if anybody needs help.
