Hardware video decoding question
#1
Well, my PBP (ANSI) arrived yesterday! Smile

It's been great fun to use so far -- I've even updated the keyboard and trackpad firmware (after finding an external keyboard after step 1 and a panicked moment), then discovered that my 5V power supply seems to be dead -- so I am borrowing a 3A USB power supply with a USB A to C cable and charging (sloooowly - about 1% an hour) through USB-C.

So - to my question - I've been reading that there are some kernel options to enable VPU decoding, but they don't seem to be configured with the kernel that shipped with the unit (or, rather, then one the Mr.Fixit script updated me to).  Is this still an important step in maximizing performance?  If so, what are the best next steps?
