    Why use such roundabout way? Can't gstreamer use vdpau directly? There's a libgstvdpau.so in gst-plugins-bad.

    As I pointed out in a previous post, mpv not having a full-fledged GUI does not mean the console needs to be involved. Also, for those who do not reject such a method, mpv (mplayer/mplayer2 too) has...

    Watching videos without a full-fledged GUI around it is hardly obscure. We're talking about something that doesn't entail much interactivity.

    Yes those browsers are quite a bit more obscure than a...

    Damn short edit times on this forum...

    Anyway, I remembered something that needs to be mentioned here - mpv contains an integrated mouse-driven UI that could be sufficient for many people. For...

    Quite a few browse the web with a very minimal GUI, basically just a tabbar (or not even that, depending on choice of window manager) and a status line. uzbl, dwb, luakit and similar webkit based...

    CMplayer is a fork of mpv that has the GUI built directly into the code, there's no core/gui separation, it's all one monolithic app. It does not use the libmpv client API, which is quite new and...

    Because building a GUI that interfaces with a library through API calls makes more sense and is much more robust than a slave mode and scraping stdout (yes, mplayer GUIs scrape stdout).

    Never. But you can compile libmpv and build a GUI using the libmpv API.

    Since we're sharing anecdotes...

    I too have a box with a Geforce 4. Nouveau does not work well with it, this is the bug I'm hitting: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=54587. The blob...

    Nope. There's SailfishOS which runs on the Jolla phone, and then there's IVI (In-vehicle Infotainment) systems based on Tizen that use Wayland.

    AIGLX is just accelerated indirect rendering, it has nothing to do with compositing actually. Not directly. It can be used by X compositors, but there are other methods, like xrender and GL direct...

    Yes, by sending pre-rendered pixmaps over the network. Not very efficient, and not network transparency in the traditional X sense where drawing commands are sent.

    Now I agree that doing network...

    They have. Since Firefox 3.6. What's a recent addition is the ability to use GTK2 plugins in a GTK3 Firefox, changes to the plugin container and IPC with Firefox were required for that.

    As was already said, it would be useful to test power consumption with software decoding. Test various presentation methods - vdpau (just the presentation part), opengl and xv. The comparison between...

    Ah yes, just like replacing a script-based init system with a service supervisor turns Linux exactly into Windows (something you've said in a previous post), adding app sandboxing turns Linux exactly...

    Sure.
    xrandr --output DVI-I-1 --mode 1440x900 --scale-from 5120x3200 --panning 5120x3200
    It should work in theory without the panning part, but in practice the mouse will be stuck in the 1440x900...

    Actually it's not. There are two chips, therefore also two names - Clarkdale/Arrandale (CPU) and Ironlake (GPU). Sandy Bridge is the first combined chip.

    Also, I would not call it ancient - my...

    Without extents support, this isn't much of an ext4 driver. Yes it's possible to use etx4 without extents, but who has an extent-less ext4 partition?

    That said, I did use this driver in the past...

    You guys need to be careful to differentiate between "xinerama the extension" and "xinerama the protocol".

    Even xrandr uses the protocol. Its purpose is to inform clients - window managers,...

    Nvidia's EGL implementation currently only works with X, as far as I know.

    Also, there's the issue of modesetting. Compositors are tied to KMS currently. Nvidia doesn't expose any API that...
