DirectFB Xine plugin needs update to support HW acceleration

Hi all,

DirectFB.org has released an early version v1.7 which handles HW acceleration on raspi's Videocore IV.
Unfortunately, Xine does not recognize these libraries and desperately loads DirectFB v1.2.

It would be VERY nice if someone could have a look in the xine directfb plugin. This will allow all Xine based applications to take benefit from the Raspberry Pi's graphic capabilities !

Details about the issue are here :
https://bugs.launchpad.net/raspbian/+bug/1095298

I think this is the code which has to be updated :
http://anonscm.debian.org/hg/xine-lib/xine-lib-1.2/file/c3293ab97f32/src/video_out/video_out_directfb.c

Could anyone try to generate a new xineplug_vo_out_directfb.so which will be able to detect DirectFB 1.7 ?

Thanks a lot,
Leonce

you really need to contact the xine developers about this - not really a Raspbian issue. That said, maybe someone here may be able to help.

Yes, I agree with you. However I expect this community to be more reactive these days than the xine developers ;-)
