Did you misread my question?



No, I just stated where I found the figure, and hence what I based my statement on. I will not make assumptions on the second biggest nor the perhaps obvious first one

Re: Ubuntu on Raspberry Pi

<r>Hello folks,<br/> <br/> Time to post about something I find close to my heart.<br/> <br/> Ubuntu for Raspberry Pi.<br/> <br/> Initially, it was supposed to be a match, but Canonical dropped and broke the support for ARMv6 in favor of optimizing for ARMv7 and above. I've discussed the topic at irc...

Re: Raspberry pie

<t>Hey Liz - just remembered that you have your other blog (gastronomydomine) to host as well - how about making an official RaspberryPie recipe?<br/> <br/> Would love that.<br/> <br/> Of course, under the spirit of Free Open Source Stuff, you could make it under GPL and publish yours as the v1.0 an...

Flash on Arm is completely down to Adobe.



...Did you just skip my post without reading?

No offense, I just thought I made it clear enough - what are the options for *non-flash* youtube playback

Re: Youtube without Flash

<t>Hi,<br/> <br/> I know this might make many of you cringe and post three walls of text about Flash not being fully supported and the pi not having enough horsepower to run youtube's bloated flash player... But before that, I'll just say HTML5. Could it work?<br/> <br/> I know that running a full-f...

Re: High definition audio (really high)

<r>Derp, my bad <br/> <br/> Yes indeed, stereo would be nice. Another thing is the delay – one second buffer would definitely not be enough, heh, possible clipping every second or so would be intolerable. But yes, it seems that the RAM should be sufficient, how about the CPU? I assume just taking da...

Re: High definition audio (really high)

<t>Yes, USB can handle the amount of data fairly easily.<br/> <br/> However, I'm wondering wether there is enough RAM to have some sort of buffer - no clipping present when playing realtime (oh wow, I don't want to become yet another ram complainer! 256MB is way more than enough for many things) and...

Re: High definition audio (really high)

<t>Yep, high definition is way higher in bitrate - simple maths:<br/> <br/> 44100 samples per second, 16 bits per sample = 705600 bits per second<br/> <br/> 96000 samples per second, 24 bits per sample = 2304000 bits per second<br/> <br/> Quick comparison of 16bit/44.1kHz and 24bit/96kHz. Of course,...

Re: High definition audio (really high)

<t>Hi,<br/> <br/> I know that RaspberryPi should be able to play 1080p30 videos just fine, with the VideoCore IV GPU and the 256MB ram.<br/> <br/> However, I'm wondering if there is enough manpower inside the chip to play say, 24bit 192kHz or 96kHz audio through an USB DAC (digital-analog converter)...
