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.

Not enough codecs supported in HW?

I wonder what other formats apart from H.264 are supported. In the comment section of the article linked, the crew is responding that e.g. WebM is not supported in HW, and hence it will not be able to get past basic VESA mode performance. That seems like a bad limitation, no? Or is that only about the firmware update?
