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.

@agx
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.

@agx
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.

@agx
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.

Follow

@carlosgonz i have backported the necessary bits to a while back: source.puri.sm/pureos/packages since I want hw accelerated video in as well.
