    I thought VLC 2.0.6 uses the GPU instead of the CPU. Tried VLC on MacOS X and the fan didn't turn up. What would you recommend?

    Hi,
    try add this ppa https://launchpad.net/~sander-vangrieken/+archive/vaapi
    then install mplayer-vaapi and gnome-mplayer and set gnome-mplayer to use VAAPI. This worked for me.

    VLC on MaxOS X make use of your GPU and the same for Windows but not on Linux. Icek's hint is the way to go.

    You sure? could just be the way it's compiled.

    You can make use of the GPU, just compile from source, works fine on my end.

    VLC should be set to use Overlay (Accelerated video output) and try using OpenGL output...
    All that is in Tools>Preferences>Video...
    In Flash HWAccel. should be checked, etc...

    Overlay is standard markedOpenGL enabledand Input & Codecs mark Use GPU accelerated decodingnow on HD3000 CPU is between 22 - 30% not bad but this is now all OT.

    Here you go (the whole enchilada):

    Code:
    vindsl@Zuul:~$ echo && echo "~ VinDSL Unity Debug Script 13.04.10 (vindsl.com) ~" && echo -n "Current Date/Time: " && date && echo -n "Distro Release: " && lsb_release -sd && echo -n "Kernel Release: " || cat /etc/*release && uname -s -r && echo -n "Gnome Release: " && gnome-shell --version && echo -n "Unity Release: " && unity --version && echo && /usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p -f && echo || echo && dpkg -s mesa-utils && echo || echo && echo "Package: mesa-common-dev" && dpkg -s mesa-common-dev | grep Version && echo || echo && echo "Package: xserver-xorg-core" && apt-cache policy xserver-xorg-core | grep Installed && echo || echo && echo "Tree Map of PCI Devices:" && lspci -tv && echo || echo && echo "Display Properties:" && echo -n " lcd monitor:    Dell UltraSharp 1907FP (analog input)" && echo  && xdpyinfo | grep -E '(resolution|dimensions)' && echo
    It's a quick n' dirty hack, for sure. LoL!

    I cobbled a lot of commands together, along with appropriate spacing/alignment for copy n' paste in threads.

    It's somewhat specific to my rig, and my requirements.

    Feel free to pick it apart, to suit your needs...

    Thanks for all your quick answers! Thanks VinDSL for the script!

    I've opened a new thread to avoid further off topic posts.
