Importance of Video Decode Hardware Acceleration

Hello media developers. This is a follow up to my original post asking you about what your pain points are for media development. I&aposve recently been thinking about some of the challenges of hardware accelerated video decode with DXVA. A whitepaper was written to help developers access H.264 decode in our current G45/GM45 chipsets, and talking with some developers it seems that DXVA is not as simple as one might think. The benefits of HW acceleration for decode are interesting to me from a potential increased battery life perspective as well as in more professional editing applications where someone might be working with a dozen or more files at once and fast decode for preview, etc would be helpful in streamlining the workflow. I&aposm wondering what some of you think.

First of all, how important is HW acceleration for video decode to you, and secondly, have you had challenges in using DXVA that could be simplified?
