    VAAPI accellerated playback in Movie Player (Totem) on 12.10?

    Hi,

    If I install the gstreamer vaapi packages and driver availble for 12.10 will I get accellerated playback in Movie Player (Totem)? I have Intel graphics on my laptop which allows for vaapi accellerated playback. I know you can get vaapi support in mplayer, but I prefer a gstreamer based player like Movie Player (Totem). If there's other steps I need to take to get vaapi support using Movie Player please advice.

    This package:
    libva-intel-vaapi-driver
    The VAAPI driver for Intel G45 & HD Graphics family
    Without this package none of the other vaapi stuff will work.
    There is a cedarview specific driver..

    Older h/w transitional package
    i965-va-driver

    & install/run/test
    vainfo.

    I would suggest that to get any performance from recent intel GPU then you need xorg-edgers ppa (update all packages, do not pick just one item)

    Totem cannot currently support gstreamer-vaapi, the team is working on it, it needs a completely revamp of the way totem use gstreamer

    Mind you official support for vaapi for MPlayer is still some way off. A safer bet would be vlc...
    You think that's air you're breathing now?
