I have made a repo for my code on Codeberg:


I plan to create a few branches for the postmarketOS mobile-config-firefox repo for styles to consider merging.

#Firefox #FOSS #FreeSoftware #GNOME #GNU #Librem5 #Linux #LinuxLibre #LinuxMobile #LinuxPhones #LinuxSmartPhones #mobile #MobileLinux #phosh #PinePhone #PinePhonePro #postmarketOS #PureOS

Take for example these examples of a #PinebookPro (rk3399 / v4l2 stateless) playing 4k content or the #RaspberryPi 4b (v4l2 stateful / m2m) playing 1080p@60fps (the limit of the hardware decoder) on a 2560x1440 screen. My videos probably don't fully capture the effect, but especially in the later case the difference is pretty visible). This is using the gtk video player demo with some extra patches and #gstreamer.

P.S.: totally forgot - if you want to follow the development, try things out or even consider helping, here are some links:

- the previous thread about the #GNOME default video player, with lots of great answers: floss.social/@rmader/111450167

- some WIP GTK patches: gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gtk/-/m

- some WIP Mutter patches: gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/mutter/

I'm also looking for people to help with #Gstreamer caps negotiation in various elements, especially for V4L2 decoders :)

FMV Puzzle game "Markus Ritter - Ghosts Of The Past" has released with a native Linux version and is available DRM free.

FOSS game engine Godot has been updated to version 4.2. This update adds stability improvements, forced integer scaling, AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution 2.2, a new lightmapper denoising approach, rendering optimizations, improved gamepad support and much more. The code is licensed using MIT.

Semi FOSS BIOS "Coreboot" has been updated to version 4.22. This update adds support for seventeen new devices; x86 support for .data sections for pre-memory stages, support for the CBFS cache for pre-memory stages and ramstage; and more. The code to Coreboot is licensed using GPLv2.0. The reason I call it semi FOSS is that it does have to include varying levels of closed source blobs to make many models work. Having some FOSS in Coreboot beats having a fully closed source BIOS though and it is a good step for users to take to get more privacy and security for their devices.

The code is hosted on Github:
