What the fuck? How can you use Linux like this when it's lacking such basic functionality? I know there's shit like youtube-dl but that doesn't cover every use case. The web browser is the thing everyone uses all day every day, and video playback is very common. How the fuck does Linux not have this yet? It's never going to be the year of the Linux desktop if they can't get this shit under control.

>> No.67187014

How does this have anything to do with Linux? Using Linux doesn't prevent you from installing browsers like Chrome (I'm just going to assume that Chrome has hardware accelerated video playback; I wouldn't know).

>> No.67187112

Video acceleration in the browser works just fine on Windows. Nobody gives a shit on Linux.

What is “video acceleration”, and why should I give a shit? First time hearing about this as someone who has used both Windows and Loonix. I have noticed no difference.

>> No.67187239

Video acceleration is short for hardware video acceleration. It means using the GPU to decode video instead of the CPU. It's faster and leaves the CPU free to do other things instead of slowing down the entire computer and making it unresponsive.

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.

Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called "Linux", and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project.

There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called "Linux" distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.

>> No.67187966

Even if your monitor is 1080p your CPU still has to decode 4K footage. It also depends on the codec being used. E.g. H.265 takes more resources to decode than H.264.

it can, it's usually the rendering that's the problem, not the decoding. A gpu isn't just a GPU, it has a fuckton of chips designed for different things and one of those things is the multimedia engine. An ASIC dedicated solely decoding or encoding videos. Decoding performance should be exactly the same regardless of how powerful the shaders are. The only bottleneck would be how fast the disk and the RAM or VRAM can feed the frames to the multimedia engine. You might not notice it with your gaymur shit but it's an abdolute must for lower end systems and laptops where power efficiency is important.

I'm downloading the Linux kernel right now and streaming video and I'm between 20% and 60% CPU usage.

Your example is completely anecdotal, just like mine, and in my experience is exemplary of someone using Arch with the experimental repository enabled or without much Linux experience.

You are a retard, but you can enforce hw acceleration in chromium even if it's considered unsafe and unstable on some chips. But then again, you are a retard, so go on.

Fuck me, so this explains why nothing plays at 60fps above 720p on Youtube. Sometimes using Linux as a desktop operating system is such a pain in the ass. I love it for doing work and running software, but there's still a lot of genuine bullshit you have to deal with if you intend to use it as your simple desktop OS to do simple shit.

I will only go back to Linux when google or microsoft makes a distro with decent usability. The reason the incels of this board use linux is purely ideological, has nothing to do with performance or be a better system. If linux becomes a decent system and becomes mainstream they will migrate to something obscure like GNU / HURD or OpenBSD.

I have a sneaking suspicion that hardware decoding is in fact working on my x220, at least when I'm decoding h264. Doesn't matter most of the time anyway, YouTube almost always serves vp9 now, which my Sandy Bridge deals with easily.

Some fizzbuzz is more useful, than your comment or OP's tech knowledge.
From arch wiki:
If OpenGL OMTC is disabled for a specific hardware, it may be due to stability issues, high system resources consumption, driver bugs or a number of different variables, and so instead of speeding things up it might slow them down. Proceed with force-enabling it at your own risk, benchmark if you aren’t sure.

That's it. Now go fuck yourself.

Don't have any hobbie that require you to use a computer.
Most diehard linux fans I know have hobbies in the real world like sports, craftmanship, travels, whatever but no video games, no movies or anything of the sort.
As soon as you need advanced audio, advanced graphics or just want to use cutting-edge hardware/software, you're fucked.

Blame companies if you want to blame someone, the linux community is doing its best but without help from upstream, it's usually a chore to write drivers, APIs/ABIs, etc.

Fuck you. Made me laugh. My stepfather, who is an actual *real* boomer blames everything on "the lineucks" when something goes wrong with his computer and calls me to fix it. Granted, it's rare that anything actually goes wrong because all he does with it is his fantasy football and baseball leagues and his NASCAR pool, so it's usually just the adblocker or one of the sites he uses adds a new script and I have to go over there and whitelist it for him, but it's always "the lineucks" acting up again. (Never mind that they're always problems that he would have had in Windows too, he just refuses to get a new computer and Windows is painful to use on it, while lubuntu with a Windows theme for familiarity is fast af)
