[Bug 997370] Re: Totem does not use the va-api gstreamer backend


this bug is/was about "totem not using va-api gstreamer backend", that's
fixed now in totem

thing is that bug 1416005 is a result of enabling va-api (and a reason
why gstreamer-vaapi can't be in the default install), so further
progress should be tracked there

Status in totem package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  installing gstreamer -vaapi from ubuntu repos breaks thumbnail generation in nautilus
  furthermore acceleration does not work in totem - cpu usage is as high as with software rendering.

  mplayer-vaapi works perfectly on the same system.

  gst-launch-0.10 -v filesrc location=~/test.mkv ! matroskademux ! vaapidecode ! vaapisink
  makes it possible to use vaapi via commandline

  i did not find a way to use vaapi for mpeg4 part 2 video streams.

  and i wasnt able to find proper values for gstreamer-properties that
  fix thumbnails and acceleration in totem.

  id like to share debug information. just tell me what you need.
