    What are you talking about. Ubuntu has been offering the Wayland session for years now. It just is not their default session. Ubuntu on Wayland works very well and has no major issues.
    And as said before, Nvidia graphics hardware has lots of issues with hardware based video decoding, particularly on linux. There is a nice thread on the Nvidia forums about this. Some users there have actually tested different cases using VDPAU, vaapi, NVDEC and software decoding and it turned out that software decoding was more (power) efficient on Nvidia hardware then using any form of hardware based decoding.

      Indeed, your lack of intelligence and reading comprehension is the explanation of why Linux is steady at 1%, people are morons and thus don't appreciate quality and freedom....

      Just in case you are wondering, he is not getting roasted for his question. His post contained 2 parts, a question, and a statement. He is getting roasted for the statement....

        When you like 144Hz, you like killing the other desktops and achieving the evil monopoly GNOME is!
        A freaking man-made disaster with no freedom!

        Ugh, or did you create 19 accounts to like yourself...?
        You are the ones trolling. There are more posts by KDE butthurt fanboys complaining about 144Hz than posts by him. Seriously, get a life, he is a fanboy of GNOME so what? Stop whinging.

          Danny3 Please align with reality. Wayland is default on many distributions including RHEL and Debian Stable. The news you are currently commenting on is about how Martin is going to make Firefox shine on [email protected] So the majority of users and big distributions are already covered.

            TemplarGR Correction. I’m a fanboy of anything sustainable. Is Linux the best possible implementation of a desktop kernel? Maybe not but it is sustainable. Is GNOME3 the best possible implementation of a desktop environment? Maybe not but it is sustainable.

              Damn. I didn't realize thanking the company and developer doing the work was trolling. I suppose if one is straight up retarded then thanking Martin for work on Gnome is like telling Nate to piss off for work on KDE

              Also think it's funny that me, a so-called butthurt KDE fanboy, is backing up the supposed Gnome troll. If this was a KDE thread I'd be smacking him with a broom yelling "GTFO you damn trash panda bastard"...but this isn't a KDE thread, he's not wrong in what he's saying, and just because he's passionately positive about something doesn't make him a troll.

                I cannot contribute patches to any serious project right now because of the fact that I'm anticipating a name change, and I don't want my old name to stick around.

                  Maybe not directly, but there is a VDPAU backend for VA-API that now includes experimental support for VP9: https://github.com/xtknight/vdpau-va-driver-vp9

                  Code:
                  $ vainfo
                  libva info: VA-API version 1.7.0
                  libva info: Trying to open /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dri/nvidia_drv_video.so
                  libva info: Found init function __vaDriverInit_1_6
                  libva info: va_openDriver() returns 0
                  vainfo: VA-API version: 1.7 (libva 2.6.0)
                  vainfo: Driver version: Splitted-Desktop Systems VDPAU backend for VA-API - 0.7.4
                  vainfo: Supported profile and entrypoints
                  VAProfileMPEG2Simple : VAEntrypointVLD
                  VAProfileMPEG2Main : VAEntrypointVLD
                  VAProfileMPEG4Simple : VAEntrypointVLD
                  VAProfileMPEG4AdvancedSimple : VAEntrypointVLD
                  <unknown profile> : VAEntrypointVLD
                  VAProfileH264Main : VAEntrypointVLD
                  VAProfileH264High : VAEntrypointVLD
                  VAProfileVC1Simple : VAEntrypointVLD
                  VAProfileVC1Main : VAEntrypointVLD
                  VAProfileVC1Advanced : VAEntrypointVLD
                  VAProfileVP9Profile0 : VAEntrypointVLD

                      This.

                      If someone here is trolling, then it's mostly Danny3 in my opinion. I haven't read such an amount of totally moronic posts here lately.

                      Just one thing:

                      Well, your taste but also your problem.

                      Well,... your problem.

                      KDE has really fallen behind lately, so I won't say it works well with Wayland, because for my taste it surely doesn't. It's just not enough currently, and it has been this way for quite some time now. You'll need to notice other environments do work well enough with Wayland for daily usage, and there is also visible progress. It's getting better day by day.

                      You might stay in the old world for the time being, but it's just not right to try to stop all things advancing because you don't like not to be on the current location of progress. And it surely won't help beating a dead horse: X.org is dead. No more progress there, people moved on for the most part. Too much cruft, too much legacy technology. Too much of a maintenance burden to advance the cluttered codebase. Dead.
