HW Acceleration Working
What do you want to discuss regarding Cedrus/vdpau here? The only problem or three to be more precise are
  • confusion constantly being spread (non-technical issue)
  • expectations raised to the maximum (non-technical issue)
  • ignorance (non-technical issue)
Cedrus/vdpau development happens completely in the open. This 'huuuuge' commit added support for A64 (6 months ago -- six months, that's half a year!) since jemk had all the work already done for H3 before and fortunately A64 is nearly the same here. And this is where we are with Cedrus.

Longsleep immediately added the necessary stuff to his BSP kernel sources and also provided immediately a PPA (integrated in his image by default!) with additional packages to make use of 2D and video acceleration. By using his image you can benefit from all of this since ages! The only thing that was missing is 'the Mali' as some call it.

And what happened in the meantime? Crappy OS images using outdated kernel versions and not containing the additions to make use of HW acceleration were used and even featured by the Pine64 folks themselves on their download page. It took them ages to provide OS images with less mistakes that contained more recent packages. And the only really working OS image they did not even mentioned at all in the wiki (took them weeks until this happened in the form of a link no one will click onto since too small and labeled wrong)

So all the important stuff was already there but Pine64 users have been kept away from it. Instead the arrival of 'the Mali' was announced. As if then every remaining issue would be fixed. 'The Mali' might help in a few other areas than retro gaming when real developers would start hacking around. But primarly it's just OpenGLES and will neither help with video acceleration nor 2D. And no youtube videos or Firefox as well.

If you've an application that benefits from OpenGLES (not OpenGL) acceleration then 'the Mali' is for you, otherwise not. And all of this does not change a bit regarding limited HDMI situation anyway (driver still using blobs, no useable license, no way to fix it). So why should we need a discussion of technical topics? Simply skip all posts in this lengthy thread except those from ssvb and longsleep and you know where we are from a technical point of view. The rest is confusion, raised expectations and ignorance. These are the real problems.
