Incorrect. I have been watching YouTube on it this morning and I would say it delivers at least 30 frames +HW accelerated video? Go to youtube.com and test it. About one frame /second.
Not here. Perhaps it's not compatible with gstreamer1.0 from vontaene.de which I have installed. But trying to uninstall that will remove half of my system including epiphany.raspberrypiguy1 wrote:Incorrect.

The Raspberry Pi Guy
I'm still working on removing gstreamer1.0 from vontaene.de and replacing them with the new RPi versions (older ones). I'll report back with the results when I'm through with it. This might also help other people who hade installed gstreamer1.0 previously (which was not available from the Raspbian repository formerly).liz wrote:My Pi's running full HD video from YouTube with no problems.

This is just trying to load http://www.google.co.uk
getting 100% cpu load
I thought this *was* an "HTML5 supported browser".The Adobe Flash Player or an HTML5 supported browser is required for video playback.
Youtube will switch to HTML5 video by default if it recognizes that flash is not supported. This may take a few seconds.redhawk wrote:Try http://www.youtube.com/html5 first and enable HTML5 support.Could someone who has gotten this to work, please supply a known working YouTube URL?
Are you saying I need to click something to "enable" HTML5 support in epiphany? I couldn't find anything in the Preferences for that.redhawk wrote:Try http://www.youtube.com/html5 first and enable HTML5 support.Could someone who has gotten this to work, please supply a known working YouTube URL?
Sorry, I'm dense when it comes to updates and branches and forks and whatnot. Does this mean I have to fallback from gstreamer 1.0 (from vontaene.de) to the old buggy 0.1, or does Raspian now include it's own 1.0?gkreidl wrote:The problems were caused by newer (not compatible) versions of gstreamer1 from vontaene.de
You will never get decent performance over VNC, the overheads are simply too high, especially with video, which you would need to compress to send over the link and the thin client would need to decompress. And of course no HW acceleration.simplesi wrote:@liz
Its not a complaint
Just feedback for the engineers.
All my Pi are headless in my schools - we have no desktop monitors
I test everything over VNC
It's a vast difference between 100% unusable (Midori, Iceweasel) and usable (Epiphany). At least now it's not a case of set a web page loading, get a cup of tea, & another tea (think about making a pot) and it may have loaded. By the time Midori has responded I've forgotten what I was aiming for or I'd need a comfort break from all the tea in my bladder.jamesh wrote: A two order of magnitude improvement in performance, but still not as good as a desktop that cost ten times as much?
You know me, James. I always was a half empty glass kind of person. My PC didn't cost 10 times as much as my Pi, I paid 30 quid for it (second hand) and then maybe a further £100 making what it is now. You can't really use inefficient coding as an excuse, you can hardly hold up Ubuntu 14.04 and Firefox 31.0 as examples of tight coding. The Pi's CPU is too slow for use as an effective desktop replacement.jamesh wrote:@Pluggy.
]Blimey, you are definitely a pint half empty sort of person.

New sig time....Don't judge the Pi by Linux (or the badly written, inefficient software that sometimes runs on it).
This really is a prime example of how inefficient a lot of software is. The Pi hasn't changed, yet with software optimisation, we have a massive improvement in performance. One does wonder, with the right effort in the right places, how fast a Pi really could be.
