Nvidia Problem

I have this nice ASUS v8200 Deluxe Video Card installed and I watched lately a video with it....
But how can I get the Video features of this card get to work in Linux?

Thanks in advance

I have heard that Nvidia provides RPM's on their website.

the rpm drivers are not really good, I suggest you to use source

Hmmm... I know that they have graphics card drivers, but do they also fit for the video in and out feature? If so, two thumbs up!
Could you then just use the device /dev/video0 or do things work differently this way?

I'd give the forum @ nVidia's website a read.
