Hi all,

Just an update on hardware-accelerated video playback for Intel GPUs...

Ubuntu 17.10 beta 2 introduces out-of-the-box support for hardware 
acceleration as much as possible. However there are some caveats still 
so please refer to the updated wiki page:


The remaining totem performance issues are actually separate to the use 
of hardware acceleration, and additional fixes in that area are coming soon.
