I just built an HTPC / homeserver, I used ubuntu 10.04 lucid lynx and combined it with xbmc.
The hardware I'm using is Asus e35m pro (embedded low voltage cpu and HD6310 gpu).
However if I run 1080p video footage, everything starts to stutter. I checked with htop from an ssh connection and noticed one of the cores goes into 100% load.
I was wondering why it does not use the GPU instead ? (I have installed proprietary drivers from ATI). Do I have to change settings ?
Is it XBMC related, ubuntu related or does ATI just not support hardware video decoding on their GPU on linux ?
