Thank you for the explanation 6by9. I'd thought it was a simple split between "GPU ram" and "CPU ram"
What I'm after is as smooth playback as I can achieve in Youtube @ 1080p (actually 1280 x 800) as this Pi4 is pretty much going to be used as a media center. So whatever I can tweak to help the playback, I'd like to do!
Am I right in assuming it will make no difference to video playback what I set GPU mem to in Raspberry Pi configuration?
in config.txt - as that effects the amount of memory used only by the camera? (there isn't one)
Are there any other settings that would benefit from a little manual intervention? If so, could you point me in the rght direction?
Chromium as packaged in Raspbian has patches to use the hardware video decoder where possible.
Rendering performance at the moment has a slight hiccup, but should be fixed very soon. Chromium always renders through X which isn't double buffered, therefore tearing is almost always unavoidable.
None of the settings should really require any tweaking.
