    GL might be an option, yeah. But doing the stuff required for web video would need shaders, and old machines very likely have GPUs that don't have the necessary shader power. So no matter how you...

    Xv is too, how shall I say, primitive for the needs of web video. It's only good enough for simple overlays, like subtitles, but even that is rendered in video resolution, so blurriness ahoy when you...

    Not on Youtube it can't. Other sites can of course do things differently, but getting 1080p on Youtube requires proper MSE support that doesn't yet exist in Firefox. It's possible to activate it in...

    @Luke: GreatEmerald isn't asking about h264 support in general, but specifically about MSE & H.264, because it's needed for 1080p videos (Youtube serves 1080p videos via DASH and that requires...

    But, but, but... Ubuntu is the most used distro! Going by how its users are behaving, Ubuntu is a leader and so Canonical should have the strength.

    Interesting word :). Remember the software...

    Gnome has been receiving tons of criticism since the 3.0 release, and because of the Gnome dev's attitude Mate and Cinnamon exist. Also, there's constant flamewars regarding systemd. So what...

    OpenH264 supports, as was mentioned, baseline profile only. Most videos on webpages will be main or high profile, so OpenH264 can't decode them. But even if the video was baseline profile, it'd be...

    Yeah, I have one of those too, except mine is an AOA110, Acer's very first netbook :), these things have a GMA950 (gen3), which is indeed Intel's. I meant of the non-Intel GPUs, GMA500/600 and...

    It's older than Ironlake and Intel doesn't care about that anymore. And that's with Ironlake being Intel's own GPU!

    The thing is though, even if Intel wanted to do something about Poulsbo, what...

    Of course you did, it was very well known what's pvr: GMA500/600 (Poulsbo) and GMA3600/3650 (CedarView). Netbooks never used anything but those. Pure Intel was GMA3150 (Pineview). So very easy to...

    You're talking as if game controller development is the only thing happening, to the detriment of everything else. As if there aren't different people working on game controllers from those working...

    Yeah, it seems very much that Canonical will bear the burden of maintaining Mir support in various drivers, toolkits, apps, etc. themselves. A waste of resources IMO, I think Canonical would be far...

    [citation needed]

    Because this news item suggests Nvidia is working towards both Wayland and Mir: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=MTc5OTk. It's Intel that explicitly removed Mir...

    What's this "reinstall" you speak of? That word is not in our vocabulary, because when we have a problem we simply use our l33t haXor skillz to fix it and then we go on our merry way. :cool::cool:

    LOL :D. Arch folks don't usually compile stuff though, unless it's from AUR.

    There's an os-release file, but I just noticed it's in /usr/lib, not in /etc. This is its content:
    NAME="Arch Linux"
    ID=arch
    PRETTY_NAME="Arch Linux"
    ANSI_COLOR="0;36"...

    The last part is correct though - /etc/os-release is the file to parse nowadays, not /etc/lsb-release.

    The hwdec option is mpv specific, mplayer and mplayer2 have a different way to enable hardware decoding. And if GUIs are in play, the only way to know what exactly is going on is to check ps to see...

    I would think so. No idea what you were observing then. The hwdec option defaults to "no" (meaning software decoding), without changing that to "auto" or "vdpau" there's shouldn't be a significant...
