Do you want hardware accelerated video playback on you #LinuxPhone, but don't have the time to build Clapper (e.g. via https://framagit.org/1peter10/flatpaks)? Just install µPlayer (now listed on https://linmobapps.frama.io) from Flathub: https://flathub.org/apps/details/org.sigxcpu.Livi

This would be great if I could actually make it work. I've set it as default video player in GNOME control center, but opening video files from Portfolio and Nautilus gets me a whole lot of nothing. 😢
I tried to launch my videos from the terminal. I'm getting an error "Invalid byte sequence in conversion input" from a webm and a mp4 files that I recorded on my PC and edited in Kdenlive. I guess I'll have to try other files.
@normandc Can't help you without more details, as which of the two apps your trying, which distro you are on and so on. 🙂
Which app: the one that does not need compiling, as mentioned in your toot ;-)
Distro: Mobian unstable
I still haven't tried with another video, I tried to d/l Big Buck Bunny but my Internet was too effing slow.
Hoping we get to record video on our Pinephones at some point.
@normandc Yeah, I run Arch, but at least with the free firmware I use I often have a "modem gone" problem, so my PinePhone is not that good at being a phone currently.
