Now what got...

    mpv, SDL2 and accelerated YUV conversions

    I am trying to get mpv (mplayer fork) working. For the moment only the xv driver works at reasonable speed. xv has a few problems though, no tv-out and crashes with --fixed-vo (gapless play for playlists). Looking at alternative: I tried compiling with SDL2 (form codeblocks) this is almost ok...

    mplayer optimizations and omapfb for mpv

    I am working on a compile of mpv to handle the changes of youtube (https streams) - so far it seems to work :)  . I am wondering if/where  there are any pandora specific patches (eg to get the omapfb, which is nice for tv out) which I could try to port?? (maybe somebody can point me to these?)

    device number of sd card if booting from sd card

    As I understood that the device number (so mmcblk0 or mmcblk1) of the sd cards is not guaranteed to point to either left or right slot, but is this also the case when booting from sdcard? I want to enable a swap partition, but I was wondering if this is safe to enable this in /etc/fstab by using...
