https://bbs.archlinux.org – On my desktop, HD Videos sometimes lags (horizontal lines) when the camera moves too fast in the video. Searching on google said something about enabling hardware acceleration.I checked the pdf here specs & it has something written about HD video playback.So, I checked if I had libva package installed.
