#9901 closed Bug Report - General (Invalid)

missing xvmc = bug!

Reported by: cantoni.alessandro@… Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.24.1
Component: MythTV - General Version: 0.24.1
Severity: medium Keywords: xvmc
Cc: Ticket locked: yes

Description

I don't see the point of discontinuing xvmc support. I've been a happy mythtv user for a long time with 1 backend, 2 nova-t-usb2 cards, 2 frontends (two epia m10k with a minimal ubuntu instal). I consider this a bug because upgrading to 0.24 will cause my setup to be useless! and you're forcing me to buy new hardware... my two m10k epia boards are perfectly able to play non-HD mpeg2 streams to my bedroom and to my dining room, making me, my wife and my son happy... and that's what I need for now! sorry to bother you, but I spent a lot of time (years maybe?) to achieve this stuff... and not being able to upgrade to the latest myth makes me feel angry.

Continuing to support XvMC while adding support for modern API's takes a lot of work, and this API is no longer supported in modern hardware. MythTV 0.23 as well as earlier releases will continue to work with your hardware for a long time to come.
