OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 3 (Kodi 14.0)

… There is an acceleration option to enable "openmax". This will be dvdplayer with hardware acceleration.

… newclock4 has a new implementation of the dvdplayer video codec acceleration.

… With no acceleration enabled you get dvdplayer with software decode. This allows unsupported codecs (like divx3, msmpeg, sorenson spark) to be played, but only at SD resolution.

… There is also an acceleration option to choose dvdplayer or omxplayer automatically. This means you normally get omxplayer, unless you are using alsa audio, or you are playing a dvd or you are playing an unsupported codec, where dvdplayer will be chosen in preference.
I am confused and have many questions.
- Is the default, in fact, dvdplayer using software decoding? Why would you not want hardware acceleration?
- If one is not worried about unsupported codecs, why would one not use dvdplayer with hardware acceleration? Otherwise, why would one not use the automatic option?

Is this change (i.e. the apparent deprecation of omxplayer) likely to be the standard for Helix?
