I tried this with Debian 9 (I think, if not maybe Debian 8) and it
wasn't as stable as I had hoped. Sorry I don't recall more details than
that, but I remember thinking the proprietary driver worked better at
Currently my CPU is strong enough to do the decoding. I believe the
project has plans to create open-source firmware to replace the blob and
maybe then it will work well.
I am routing for noveau with vdpau as it will be better supported and
for longer than the proprietary alternative.
