I have successfully installed Ubuntu MATE 15.04 on raspberry pi 2. A have also noticed that vlc player 2.20 is already installed, but playing videos does not work. A read that VLC player 2.2 comes with hardware acceleration on a Raspberrypi but in my case it does not used it
a have also done the following
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:videolan/stable-daily
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install vlc vlc-plugin-*
but with no success
is it possible to play movies on vlc hardware accellerated or am i missing something?
thanks in advanced
