VLC/Totem uses which graphics driver
i am using Debian Sarge, before that i was using "Fedora Core 4". when i installed xine on FC-4, playback was very slow like "a replay" as "Xv drivers" for my motherboard ASUS K8V-MX do not exist in Linux 2.6 kernel of FC-4 .
now on Sarge. with VLC & Totem videos work fine. I want to know the graphic-drivers used by VLC/Totem on my Sarge. how can i do that?
(by the way, i installed "google earth" on Sarge & it complained that it could not find drivers & hence using "OpenGL driver instead". just to give you the extra information)
Totem doesn't touch the drivers as far as I know. The drivers for your video card are set in the Xfree86 configuration file on Sarge. All the other versions of Debian have moved on the Xorg from Xfree. It has been a while since I used Xfree, and I'm forgetting where the config file went. I will guess it might be in /etc/X11/, but could be wrong. Search for the name xfree or Xfree in file names, and you'll see it. The graphics driver will be identified in plain text in that file.
cat /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 | grep Driver
That should return a list of "drivers" one of which you are using for video..
