1080p60 video on PBP Linux
#1
Sad 
Hi guys,

I'm running Manjaro on my PBP. Loving the device so far. They keyboard is amazing (backlight would have been nice, but I'm not gonna niggle about a $200 laptop) and the screen is pretty WOW.

I'm able to play 1080p30 video in youtube, but 1080p60 video turns into 1080p12 (or thereabouts — tons of dropped frames) in youtube, mpv, and vlc.

I'm running the latest Manjaro.

Has anyone managed to figure out 60fps 1080 video? I believe none of the players I've tried support hardware decoding. Is there any trick to this, or is it just a limitation of the FLOSS video drivers?

Thanks!

I think this still depends on upstream kernel improvements for supporting the build in VPU. It seems some of it got merged into the "hantro" driver for Linux Kernel 5.14, but that hasn't yet reached Manjaro. Maybe in a few weeks we will know more.

Good to know! I'll be looking forward to that. Smile
