    Not tried Dailymotion before (nor Vimeo; but they have a lot more restrictions on “free” accounts). At least being French they optimise their delivery network for 25fps raaa

    this should be the old TV set (that I hauled up to the top level last weekend) showing some visualisations,

    Did this not work for you?

    I got about 15 FPS over a Wifi network on a really crappy Advent using VESA drivers… probably works really well on a proper system.

    For some reason I got a slightly improved frame rate when it was full screen.

    I’d never tried it before for uploads; as hadn’t previously used dailymotion; (and only recently acquired a cheap Nokia/Windows phone which at least allows you to shoot 25fps video (not some random variant on NTSC 29.997 fps which is often not that exact frame rate) so didn’t know if it worked or not..

    flash player (at least some versions) use software rendering when windowed but full hardware acceleration (if available) when full screen; there are also equivalent Linux apps which can use the hardware acceleration.

    I installed something called “ubuntu studio” on this 10 year old Tosh laptop that has a busted keyboard and flaky touchpad, so added the full size peripherals to it and put it in the space now vacated by the TV-set (which is supposed to eventually be my electronics workbench); I often find myself needing to refer to a datasheet or online resource and Linux does seem to have a lot more free electronics based apps (although I still hardly understand them and will probably persist in writing my circuit diagrams out in shaky longhand as my electronic skills aren’t much more advanced than they were in 1987…)

    This computer will play back video in decent quality (though its audio output is really rough from the cheap replacement PSU; there are harmonics into several MHz range, enough to disrupt the S-VHS signal if I try and feed its audio output via the telly)

    I gave up on them in the end as their music copyright rules are even more flawed/restrictive than youtube (which is about the fairest and most sensible deal of the lot); I often deliberately use 1970s era piratenliedjes/Schlager as backing tracks arather than EDM as I listen to these to improve my language skills; and the artists should be of the age group where they would have at least made some money from traditional sales and don’t mind if youtube add a link to the original track at a legit source and I adblock anything else that is there.

    whats more worrying though is 1990s old skool British EDM being flagged to the point the track is muted unless you re-edit the video – what sort of stupid deal did the artist sign up to or did they sell their rights in the 90s to some major to pay for drugs? Many young people use youtube to get track names of these classics….
