But seriously. Its a non issue. 99% of users aren't compiling a kernel while watching a video. Usually they are watching just the video.
Also the bit rate of big buck bunny is typical of most video streaming bit rates. I have no idea where your comming up with the counter argument.
I can even play 4 of the same video in the same size simultanoeusly which was my point.
In todays day and age of fast cpu for x86, we simply don't have a huge pressing need for video accelration.
Now if your saying that ARM needs vide accelration. I whole heartedly agree. But most of todays modern dual core and up systems are completely cpabale of playing video with zero acceleration
and 1980x1020 isn't even all that popular.
most video on pcs are DVD or lower quality. blue Ray players aren't even very common acesseories yet.
