  1. For VDPAU, VLC 2.2 brings direct display...

    For VDPAU, VLC 2.2 brings direct display (zero-copy) mode. This means VLC should now match the efficiency of other players which already had direct display since forever. I can't personally test it...

    Put force-window=yes and idle=yes in mpv's config file, that way you'll get a window for audio files or even if you just start the player itself without loading any file. You can then use the...

    It seems to be the former. You can read a bit about it in this bug: https://github.com/mpv-player/mpv/issues/1574. I haven't researched further, as I don't have a need for a GUI, plain mpv is pretty...

    Many features coming indeed, but one is still missing - VAAPI zero-copy support.
  5. Do you have something more concrete than that...

    Do you have something more concrete than that chart, which has said WIP since years? Cos the thing is, such a decoder wouldn't be radeon-specific and there's been no indication anywhere that any...

    Reading the Arch forums, it's actually the other way around - a lot of Arch newcomers started their Linux journey with Ubuntu and have then moved on to Arch.

    There are troubles on every forum....
  8. No personal experience as I don't have the...

    No personal experience as I don't have the hardware (I have Ironlake, Haswell and Baytrail; all work great with mainline libva-intel), but the commit message when the branch was last updated says...

    There's a branch of libva-intel that has h264 support for 4500HD: http://cgit.freedesktop.org/vaapi/intel-driver/log/?h=g45-h264
  10. The 4500MHD has hardware video decoders, so this...

    The 4500MHD has hardware video decoders, so this thing can be used as a decent media playback device. And there's decent RAM options, so browsing the web shouldn't be that much of a chore. Unlike the...

    In theory you can maybe, but there's no point doing in practice when it'll be less efficient than doing it on the CPU. GPUs are good at *massive* parallelism. Video decoding is not massively...

    How do you set vaapi up? Arch has a libva-mesa-driver package that contains gallium_drv_video.so. You need that, then set LIBVA_DRIVER_NAME=gallium

    Why are you using a vdpau-vaapi wrapper? There's a native vdpau plugin in gst-plugins-bad. Either that, or use radeon's native vaapi support that's in mesa 10.4. With wrappers you're just asking for...

    libevdev and libinput are (as their name implies) libraries. The former provides access to the kernel evdev subsystem, the latter provides (quoting the libinput website) "device detection, device...

    It involves systemd. So it of course must be blown out of proportion.

    That's just the current state of things. It was said from the beginning that there will be an interface to control networkd at...

    The person attempting the joke didn't have much of a clue. Considering networkd's main use case - containers, it only makes sense that it got forwarding and NAT abilities.
  18. Of course it does. If you can't see the...

    Of course it does. If you can't see the difference between "new feature" and "outside implementation duplicating an existing implementation", that's your problem.

    Spinning things into...

    It's not another codepath doing something already being done by an existing codepath. CUDA is a new feature, not an outside implementation doing something an existing implementation is already doing.

    Needing to test every change against two codepaths instead of one lowers maintenance burden? Needing to inquire with each bug report which codepath the user was using (maybe the reporter will include...
