Hardware, Embedded Systems Remember the Raspberry Pi ARM board we talked about last week? Well, while running Quake III is all fine and dandy and illustrates the board is capable of something, it didn't really tell me anything since I'd guess few people are going to use such a board for gaming. So, I was pleasantly surprised to see that the Raspberry Pi team posted another demo today - running 1080p video for eight hours straight. The chip was still cool to the touch. And just to reiterate: $25.

Any player can output to framebuffer. And I'm pretty sure that is WASN'T MPlayer at all, because there's barely no GPU acceleration driver (or any easy implementation for one). It's very more likely to be GStreamer in it.
