FS#667 - More performance at old computers, Video from HD/SD, Youtube in browser

Testing Elive at Amilo M7400, 512 MB about 1.2 GHz.

It works good, but performance coud be better by using video.
Installed at this mashine is Puppy 5.3 (Slaco), here the perfomance is much more better.

I have discovered a bug due to the ARGB configurations in older versions of the beta, but this should have been perfectly solved in recent versions.

By other side, this can happen if you have choose the "software mode" composite in the startup of the desktop (live mode, beta version of course, not the stable one), so basically, the video should play correctly and fast with the GL/3D accelerated mode instead of the software mode (or not composite at all, but we normally don't want this mode which is more ugly)

Can you provide more information with these configurations?

Thank you

can you confirm that works correctly on new versions? (do not use software-mode composite, use GL or ecomorph, or even disable composite)
