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 :
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 ?
