Re: latest ffmpeg package

armel != armhf Also ffmpeg != libav Debian (so also Raspbian) uses libav: http://libav.org/ This is different from ffmpeg: http://ffmpeg.org/ So no, you can't install packages from deb-multimedia.org and even though the tee functionality has been implemented in libav it will probably take some time...

Re: latest ffmpeg package

"For the main ffmpeg repository you can also directly download the source snapshot that we generate each night instead of grabbing a source snapshot from the gitweb URL. This is slightly preferred since it reduces the load on our server."

Re: Windows CE

Mentioning Allwinner Chipset with the Mali400 GPU, the hype overshadows the reality, even the new Rikomagic with the RK3066 Dual Core & Quad Core ARM still use the Mali Grapics which were never intended for large large screens.

Re: Windows CE

In my opinion whilst I am happy to say well done to developers, lets face it WinCE is a "dead" Operating System http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_CE Maybe this is why we see so many cheap Windows CE devices on Ebay ie SatNavs £30.00, maybe M$ are just happy to still get revenue on a 16 year old O...

I don't know what they did to Wheezy, but it is just so un-godly slow. Maybe Arch would be best?
Though in BETA maybe piCore would be a good base, one would need to build DOSBOX, but it should be feasible:
