[22:41] <nasuga> The raspberry Pi foundation website listed newark element 14 as a place to buy Pi's where I live, do they accept non-business customers or only businesses? Throughout their order form they ask for a business name or what business I am. Am I still able to buy from there without being a business? (I hope this is a good place to ask, sorry if not)
[22:41] * jhunter (~jtown@c-98-210-198-232.hsd1.ca.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[22:43] <Encrypt> nasuga, You should choose non-business customer I think
[22:43] <Jusii> I'm sure they do, as I had a quick look, company name isn't mandatory and job role has 'hobbyist' listed
[22:43] <nasuga> I did, I set Home/Hobbyist something
[22:44] <nasuga> But there's a star on the next page for credit card information for a company name
[22:44] <Jusii> then there's account type, business / personal
[22:44] <nasuga> s/star/asterisk/
[22:44] <Jusii> ah
[22:44] <atouk> just put your name in teh business line

[23:43] <azizLIGHTS> i see
[23:43] <azizLIGHTS> what amount of gpu ram do you recommend
[23:43] <azizLIGHTS> for playing 1080p files

[23:46] <gordonDrogon> azizLIGHTS, I think that just for playback the minimum of 16MB is all that's needed.
[23:47] <gordonDrogon> I use 64MB to get Minecraft to run.
[23:47] <IanWizard-Cloud> I find that mplayer on framebuffer won't ever actually do fullscreen. Any suggestions?
[23:47] <gordonDrogon> does mplayer use the gpu now?
[23:47] <IanWizard-Cloud> It runs and plays fine. Audio even works, but it's this tiny fraction of the screen.
[23:48] <IanWizard-Cloud> gordonDrogon: I thought so, but I'm not using it for anything serious. I wouldn't be one to kow.
[23:48] <IanWizard-Cloud> *know
[23:48] * MarderIII (~marderii@enneman.demon.nl) Quit (Quit: leaving)
[23:48] <gordonDrogon> I've only ever used omxplayer on the Pi myself - I'm really not an AV type user...
[23:50] <IanWizard-Cloud> I also experience the same thing on my cubie2, so there's a decent chance it's an entirely generic problem.
[23:50] <IanWizard-Cloud> Google didn't turn up much.
[23:50] <gordonDrogon> might be that mplayer is doing it all in software ad not using the gpu at all.
[23:51] <IanWizard-Cloud> gordonDrogon: why would that cause it to be so small though?
[23:52] <IanWizard-Cloud> It just seems like an odd issue to be gpu related. Again, not that I'd know though.
[23:52] <gordonDrogon> the arm is really slow at decoding video compared to the gpu.
[23:53] * marcdel_ (~marcdel@ Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[23:53] <azizLIGHTS> im getting a bunch of video samples now to see what amount of ram to use
[23:53] <azizLIGHTS> i had 547 mb showing as ram, so i must have had 16mb ram for gpu. and video did not show up on omxplayer, only audio
[23:54] <azizLIGHTS> so i put 256 mb on the gpu just to test the same file, and video now shows
[23:54] <IanWizard-Cloud> azizLIGHTS: when I'm using omxplayer, I've found the best performance overall to be 256/256. That said, I'm not running anything else on it.
[23:54] <azizLIGHTS> same file, same command
[23:54] <azizLIGHTS> i have some other things running so its gonna be a squeeze for me
