    For video acceleration part, the previous gpu integrated on core i5-i3, intel HD, has support on linux for mpeg2 and h264.
    DO NOT bother trying to prove any kind of point using benchmarks. Benchmarks can be made to prove anything. I can give you benchmarks showing an 8086 blowing the doors off an i7. Totally meaningless.

          Is Tim aware of the API issues ? If so I can hook up with him. I had been trying to get the API opened up in its current form.

            Bridgman, sorry to say this, but gbeauche told you about serious API issues before in some other post.. didn't you do anything with that? (i don't know where that post is, but you replied on it although i doubt you want to go through all your post history )

              Are you sure those were API issues ?

              I remember the discussion about *implementation* issues (specifically the function that put the decoded image into a form that could be used by OpenGL wasn't working) but I don't remember any discussion saying that the API itself would need to change.

              gbeauche's recent post mentioned *API* issues, implying that if we released the current API it would need to change anyways. I don't remember seeing discussion about API issues before.
