I recently acquired a GT710(*), and it has no trouble with any media.

I just had to ensure VDPAU is active, or else it would max the CPU.
Funny story, without VDPAU some artefacts were visible and I returned
the card for a replacement. Same problem. I then discovered that VDPAU
was not properly installed and fixing it made it all smooth.
