    What am I missing here...

    I have recently been through the mill trying to enable VDPAU Acceleration for Chromium/Brave for Linux. And I have been able to get it to work... kinda.

    However, in my searches, I found this.

    Oh... that's what you meant. Ok. For some reason I thought you were talking about regional differences in the signals.

    I don't know about that... VHS players came in all sorts of makes and models. Some only had RF output, mainly because some people only had TV's with RF input. Some had AV Out... Some had AV Ins and...

    Re: Convert VHS tape to mp4

    Can't you take old VHS tapes to places like WalMart, Walgreens, or any type of photo-print shop, and have them put it on DVD?

    Re: ultra thin laptops

    I have also heard that people are more apt to "upgrade" to a newer Tablet, and less include to "upgrade" to a new Laptop or Desktop PC.

    Re: ultra thin laptops

    I know this thread is all about "Ultra Thin Laptops," but it seems that many Desktop PC's now come with "Ultra Thin Keyboards."

    Whereas I agree with that statement. Sometimes... you just gotta have a REAL keyboard in order to get some typing done. :P

    My biggest concern with "thin" laptops is durability. They're not building them with Titanium, that's for sure... usually it's plastic. On the more expensive builds, it's aluminum, and that an only...

    Correct. Although, the Stadia Enhanced Extension will allow you to force H.264 or VP9.

    Either way, Stadia still only runs in Software mode.

    I am running Kubuntu 21.04, and it will not allow me to download the PPA for that Chromium Build. APT overrides the PPA, and downloads the Chromium SNAP. Nothing I can do to fix it.

    Re: Nvidia / GPU Video Acceleration

    I agree with you. Looks like this "old hardware" is being left in the dust.
