[Kdenlive-devel] movit in kdenlive build script

In my opinion to have support for 10 years old hardware is more than enough
and to drop support for SDL is ok for me.
SDL did the job the last years so far but GL has great potential.
Absolutely smooth running with several filters applied
to hd material is pretty cool.

In this point I'm with Steinar. Its better to concentrate on openGL and
make it perfect than to try to support all possible
very old hardware. We dont have this crew to do this. And openGL is the
future or already standard in pro video programs
like Liteworks and co. Another point is what GL version to support. This
has to be discussed.


BTW: here the patch
