Description Philippe Normand 2021-07-12 06:32:06 PDT
In some cases GL rendering is not really useful, such as on machines without GPU. In those cases currently Mesa's llvmpipe is used, introducing CPU and RAM usage increase compared to the non-gl rendering path. For these cases the user could set a new env var, allowing the player to use the Cairo sink.
