Play Video using mplayer-vaapi with out X
 
Hi Everybody,

I would like to play 1080p movie using the hardware acceleration of my radeon HD 3450 without X server started.

I installed the mplayer-vaapi from this site :
http://debian2.oppserver.net/debian/

Now , when i try to launch video :

mplayer -vo vaapi myvideo.mkv, i got an error like "could not open X11".

So my question : the X server must be mandatory installed and started to use the hardware acceleration with mplayer ?

Regards

seeing as xorg / x11 IS the interface to the GUI and anything not a text terminal

you need it running and installed
