Off the top of my head, the regular ansible playlists should be fine
but you'll want to make sure the libdrm-dev package is installed.

Otherwise check configure shows you have DRM, Video4Linux (with DRM),
MMAL, OpenGL,  OpenGL ES and EGL.

I've used a Pi3 with stock raspbian, open source driver and full kms
for testing. Don't expect miracles on the Pi3 - I can't get much more
than about 35fps for HD material due to a limitation in the driver
somewhere (load is only just double digits). Pi4 should arrive on
Monday for testing - just picked up a black Friday deal:)

Thanks and regards,
