Hello all, I struggled to have a working version of mpv in another post called "Slow Video" where you can find all the specs and logs related to my machine.
Now I installed vlc, and it seems that there is no way to make it work.
Just to double check my understanding, so basically we prefer to have hardware acceleration when
performing some tasks such as playing videos.
There are different APIs for hardware acceleration, in particular the most famous ones are:
- vaapi (developed by intel), so is this supposed to work better with intel video cards/adapters?
- vdpau (developed by nvidia), so is this supposed to work better with nvidia video cards/adapters?
- mesa (developed by amd), so is this supposed to work better with amd video cards/adapters?
Also, when we don't use hardware acceleration basically all the work is performed by the main CPU right?
Can somebody give me more details about this?
