    Default Ubuntu Will Not Enable Open-Source VDPAU Support

    Phoronix: Ubuntu Will Not Enable Open-Source VDPAU Support

    This morning I wrote about Mesa 10.1 likely going into Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, but if you were hoping this means Ubuntu will enable VDPAU driver support for open-source hardware-accelerated video decoding, that improvement to video playback isn't going to happen with the official Ubuntu Mesa/Gallium3D driver packages...

    Canonical lies.

    They don't want to add that for another shady reason.

    Or maybe they want to implement it when Mir goes stable.

    Edit: Should've read the article, but really, why would you call Canonical liars?

    Uuuh, I'm pretty sure this will be reconsidered if given some publicity. Unfortunately, enabling VDPAU unofficially is not really an option for distributors because of lack of QA...

    Let's file a bug and follow up on this, okay?

    ubuntu 12.04 is 733mb
    13.10 is 833 or 883 mb

    both 64bit so i assume 32bit would be even smaller

    theres alot more space they can use to include stuff like full language packs and stuff like that on the image.

    Some people prefer to believe in evil and conspirancy, I prefer to believe in stupidity. I mean, if image size is more important than a major usability issue for end users, you deserve the market share you have.
