I was wondering about how much memory is used during a 1080p video playback. for low-end programming and small-footprint linux distributions, 128-256MB RAM is a good enough size. has video playback been measured via RAM? could I also run a few things while I watch 1080p anime or the likes?
I think its in the Wiki somewhere, but I think for 1080p playback about 70MB of the 128 or 256MB total needs to be allocated to the GPU.
