Is Linux Faster At Streaming 10-bit .mkv's?

Postby Shodex » Tue Jan 22, 2013 1:27 am

As an anime watcher I sadly have to deal with the hardships of 10-bit .mkv's. When I try to watch a show on my PS3 it will start up fine, that's not the problem, it's the stuttering. Videos won't play for more than 10 seconds before they stutter. I know why, it's my embarrassingly pathetic computer*. It's just not fast enough to remux the video on the fly.

But I'm on Windows 7 right now, I could very easily make the switch to a teeny weeny Crunchbang Linux system. But would this make streaming/remuxing any faster? Slower? Will there be any difference at all?

On a side note, if there are any tricks to making these videos stream faster I'd love to hear 'em. I normally watch my stuff on the computer, but we just got a new TV and it'd be nice to watch some 720p Anime on there instead of this puny little monitor.

*My Specs:
- Windows 7
- 2GB DDR1 RAM
- Geforce 9500GT 1GB
- 2.66GHz Pentium D
- You get the idea
