µPlayer 's now includes all the needed bits to play accelerated video on the out of the box. This allows for fast 📼 on distros that don't ship or git.

Wow it nice. I tried yesteday compiling the livi package by using my Librem5 but i canceled the build because too much time of build. : ( do you have plans to share Livi on flathub.org? Or something easy to install it ?

@carlosgonz I dumped a flatpak here: honk.sigxcpu.org/tmp/org.sigxc - note that this is not meant as a generic player but more as a testing tool - hence flathub might not make sense.

Thank you Guido i installed as well and tested uplayer it work beautiful and super smooth. : )


@carlosgonz yeah, it's pretty smooth and even more important to me: i can watch video continuously without thermal throttling kicking in or draining the battery too fast.

uplayer is affected for suspending like lock screen? it happened me.

@carlosgonz it's not , it's . Happens to all GTK4 apps and I've fixed it with this MR source.puri.sm/Librem5/phoc/-/

so will be gone after the next release.

Can you update the uPlayer flatpak please i see new improvement.
libgtk4 is going to be available soon to L5 then i can update uPlayer from master, i am not sure if i need Gstreamer 19 to build uPlayer but i tested Gstreamer stock from terminal to see if video hardware accel work but it worked.

I updated Livi from Flathub but Livi not boot from the file manager Portfolio. So is not working ATM.

@carlosgonz works fine here in nautilus. Any error messages in the console? Does `flatpak run org.sigxcpu.Livi --h264-demo` run?

I tested Nautilus but same problems, this Nautilus can not open videos with Livi, Livi it already configured to open videos, but does not.
Will Livi play videos on complete fully screen? At the moment not cover the full display when playing a videos.
I just waiting for GTK4 to compile Livi with Meson to not using Flatpak.
Thank u Guido

@carlosgonz you really want to file bugs with screenshots. It sure covers the whole screen here in fullscreen mode and also attach console output when e.g. launching a video fails.

@carlosgonz note that you need libadwaita and gstreamer 1.19 too so flatpak is the easiest option (it builds pretty fast). Please file bugs if things don't work since fediverse can't capture enough details.

flatpak run sigx* *
not showed any error on terminal, it work good the demo video, but the trouble is open videos with any filemanager.

@carlosgonz did you select µPlayer as default for handling videos?

It fixed now with phoc v0.8, everything is good now.
= )

It play videos only using the Terminal but not for Portfolio.


What happen if you add: v4l2slh265dec to livi to decode h.265 ? i think that hantroG2 it already on Librem 5 Linux kernel. I just saying... : )

@carlosgonz While V4L2_PIX_FMT_HEVC_SLICE is in the kernel for hantro2 there's no h265/hevc support in gstramer yet for that or where do you see that? Can you link to it?
