2.5 years of it being available on JB devices :whistle:


Wouldn't VLC be able to convert on the fly without hardware acceleration ?


I would assume if it was a h.264 encoded video that it'll offload it to the video chip instead of making the CPU decode the video on the fly. I don't know if VLC chooses to decode everything via the CPU.

I'm pretty sure it uses the HW for decoding H.264 and the CPU for everything else, these devices aren't really powerful enough to docode H.264 in software.
