"It was just one week ago that NVIDIA released a stable Linux
driver update, but today for those wishing to live on the bleeding
edge of NVIDIA's proprietary Linux driver development, the first
beta release in the 260.xx series is now available for testing. The
NVIDIA 260.19.04 Linux driver brings a lot to the table.
"First off, the 260.19.04 driver adds support for the nvcuvid
API, which is a way for decoding video and exposing these surfaces
to CUDA, which will allow applications to perform custom processing
of the video like with trans-coding and video-processing
applications. This NVIDIA API has already been available for
Windows but now works with CUDA Linux platforms too."
