Sorry, but your tone is incorrect for this mailing list.

What Rémi pointed, and he was probably right, is that most devices, even N8, will
be probably very slow to decode h264 video, if we don't have access to the
Hardware decoder.

Still, my point is that:
 - we will see the perf result at the end
 - it should work very fine for audio
 - some Symbian people hinted we could get hw access
 - DivX/mpeg2 should playback nicely at SD resolution on N8/E7/future Ex
 - if the code is clean and doesn't mess up too much, it doesn't block
   vlc development. Which is why I applied the patches that are very
   clean, and am asking for reviews for the ones that are so-so and I
   didn't send to this ml the ugly ones... :)
 - (I learn a lot)

I hope we can go on nicely on this topic
