Binaries for POT 5.5.0-beta1 on Qt 5.8.0-rc1 and Experimental Accelerated QtWebKit

A new version of Qt is out and some interesting changes are being developed. Interesting work was done on WebEngine. This package contains an experimental build of Qt 5.8.0-rc1 with the POT driver to provide hardware acceleration to video decoding and rendering. POT was updated to build on the new plugin architecture of Qt and includes ffmpeg 3.2.2. For info on the content of the package refer to this article. The youtube player still runs on WebKit 1 and so is still hardly useful.

Please report issues on github. Have fun ;-)

Download POT 5.5.0-beta1 for Raspbian Jessie Lite Pi2 (also tested on Pi3) here (md5: 7ca1b961ab8c70176f6aeb13d0bc4f9a).

Binaries for POT 5.4.0 on Qt 5.7.0 and Experimental Accelerated QtWebKit

So far, no real complains about POT 5.4.0-beta1 so I suppose it is sufficiently safe to consider it POT 5.4.0. Refer to this article for more info.
