With the Linux.Conf.Au 2014 conference having wrapped up, here's some of the video recordings that I'd recommend worth watching as Phoronix readers.

If you like the assortment of content frequently featured on Phoronix when it comes to Linux graphics, hardware, etc, you will likely enjoy watching:

- David Airlie talking about the work on Virgil3D / KVM-QEMU 3D acceleration.

- Eric Anholt talking about GLAMOR improvements for X.Org to reduce device-dependent code and leveraging OpenGL for more 2D acceleration.

- Dirk Hohndel and his adventures with the Subsurface diving program in porting it to Qt from GTK.

- David Chinner talking about Linux file-systems.

- GLphy for high-quality glyph rendering using OpenGL ES 2.0 shaders by Behdad Esfahbod.

- Why open-source programmers should begin utilizing OpenCL, by Beau Johnston.

- The work done over the past year on DRI3/DRI3000 in the X.Org Server and related components by Keith Packard.

- Lennart Poettering on having Dbus in the kernel.

- Adam Jackson talking about rewriting GLX to rewrite X.

All of the videos from LCA 2014 are available from this mirror. All videos are in MP4 format.
