Yes, it uses ATI's proprietary MPEG acceleration, which specs never were 
released. It was the same on x86, for the same class of machines. Only Intel 
gave an open source driver with used the same functions on his 810 
hardware.... and NVidia brought that for Linux in a closed source way for his 
Geforce 4 series.
