for my project I need to play 4k video files on a mini PC, with Atom E3950 processor and integrated video card (intel HD 505).
currently I am using Ubuntu 18.04 and OF 0.9.8 and the playback is not smooth, with jumps and missed frames. I know that we are pushing this hardware to the limit, but mpv is able to play nicely h265 4k videos on it, while totem does not (and so openframewors since they are both using gstreamer).
What would be your suggestion? I read here about libmpv, that iirc uses ffmpeg library… is it possible/feasible to use it within an OF application?
Or there is a way to tell gstreamer to use a different codec/library/whatever to improve its performance? We are free to chose the codec that works best, it does not have to play everything… but what it plays has to be played nicely.
Of course moving to a more expensive hardware would be an easy fix, but four obvious reasons we’d like not to
