Description

2 years ago
The code to disable hardware acceleration was reliant on the video decoder being a SharedDecoderManager ; and it only disabled if the MediaFormatReader used the SharedDecoderManager.

There's no more use of the SDM, the code must be modified to disable HW acceleration under all circumstances.

Allow disabling HW acceleration even when SharedDecoderManager isn't used.

The SharedDecoderManager is being obsoleted.
