Using the xvba-va Driver (VA-API)
'''ATI RadeonHD 2x00 - 4xx0 cards'''
If you have one of these cards, you do have the option of using the Catalyst Legacy driver, but only on Ubuntu 12.04/Precise and earlier. The if you downgrade your Xserver version (the Catalyst Legacy driver does not support the kernel version (3.5) or the Xserver version (1.13) that Ubuntu Quantal/12.10 uses).This can be done really easily by following the instructions given at [[]]. This PPA downgrades the Xserver and install a patched version of fglrx that supports kernel version 3.5 of Ubuntu Quantal.
== Using Ubuntu-supplied fglrx/Catalyst ==
On Ubuntu Quantal, this will install fglrx/Catalyst 9.000, which is roughly equivalent to Catalyst 12-9. NOTE: You must have the restricted repository enabled in Applications -> Ubuntu Software Center -> Edit -> Software Sources... for this to work. After you complete the install, skip to [[Ubuntu_Quantal_Installation_Guide#Generate_a_new_.2Fetc.2FX11.2Fxorg.conf_file|Generate a new /etc/X11/xorg.conf file]].
=== Command line ===
sudo apt-get install linux-source fglrx fglrx-amdcccle

sudo apt-get install build-essential cdbs dh-make dkms execstack dh-modaliases linux-headers-genericfakeroot
''If you are using the x86_64 architecture (64 bit)'':
This package contains both the 32-bit and 64-bit driver.
Note that the file name may change to version 13.2 please change the file name as needed in case you get "not found" errors.Also note that -linux- and -beta3- may change as well. This can be confusing.  wget unzip chmod +x

sudo dpkg -i fglrx*.deb
If building .deb packages fails, there is also an [ Alternative Manual Installation]
When running the dpkg line, you may receive an error like:

They may have attempted to install out of order. Install them individually as:
sudo dpkg -i fglrx_*.deb
sudo dpkg -i fglrx-amdcccle*.deb
sudo dpkg -i fglrx-dev*.deb
You should see a successful result similar to:

1=== Minimal Config ===A very basic /etc/X11/xorg. Mac has the codecs mp3 ready inalstled and conf file might be what you need if something is missing you wont get any philosophical crap talk just install the missing ones.2. Flash support yeah, via have a wrapper system new card that sometimes goes haywire Also has problems with some drivers and compositing.3. OmniGraffle. There is absolutely nothing equivalent for Linux. It is alone good enough reason to switch to Mac.4. iTunes (the web shop) included. Really works. People do care about this, as iTunes is a rather well working concept and hassle free for the users. Plus, the iPods have sold plenty.5. Polished image. Open source projects have no idea of how to polish the final product. For instance the startup sequence of most distributions is plain horrible. Screen resolution changes (monitors pop up information boxes and flicker), color themes change, text in traditional text mode passing 's not fully supported by, Yuchamdconfig. small things like that really do matter.6. Better IM clients. For instance Pidgin is just plain usability disaster. Been waiting for Here follows the Telepathy based applications to replace it for years now, but it seems to take ages. (Integrating seamless high usability communications tools for both home and corporate environments would be THE killer feature entirety of the Linuxa minimal xorg.)7. You can get Office 2008 conf file for Macs. The user interface is very usable, and it allows the user to focus on the content creation instead of fiddling manually with the formating tools for endless hours to create something actually good looking. OpenOffice does not manage that. They even dropped the ball entirely for 3.x, the test versions are just as horrible as 1.0 was in usability terms. (That is especially shame as there IS a complete redesign of the interface available. It is more usable, looks better, slightly original, and extremely well thought. It's called Flux by the way. But nothing like it will land before 4.x, which will take some 5 years lol)Radeon HD 6870:  Section "Device" Identifier "ATI radeon 6870" Driver "fglrx" EndSection

Be advised that you may need to manually set the correct refresh rate for your second monitor through catalyst.
==''Force use of the new xorg.conf (if necessary)''==
Once you've confirmed that vainfo is correct, you can test video playback. A good test player for va-api is VLC. You can enable va-api in Tools -> Preferences -> Input and Codecs. Check the box named "Use GPU acceleration (experimental)" and then restart VLC.

if amdcccle doesn't work and says Identifier is not a valid word. Use lower case letter in xorg.conf
or specify all the correct parameters. For example:
sudo dkms build -m fglrx -v '''9.012''' -k '''3.5.0-22'''-generic
sudo dkms install -m fglrx -v '''9.012''' -k '''3.5.0-22'''-generic
