Recently my graphics card went bad. It was a Nvidia 9500 GT which has vdpau capability. So I always used to install the nvidia proprietary driver right after installing Ubuntu.
Now I am using Nvidia onboard graphics which doesn't support vdpau.
I watch lots of high definition videos but I dont play any games.
After watching some videos on youtube about using only opensource software I am quite motivated and I no longer want keep any proprietary software installed unless necessary.
Do I need the proprietary driver ?
