I just purchased the raspberry pi 2 and I was trying to use it to make my "non-smart" TV a bit smarter. Basically, instead of connecting my laptop (via HDMI) to the TV every time I wanted to watch online movies on a bigger screen, I thought to leave the Pi 2 always behind the TV for this purpose.
I tried different OSs, first the raspian from NOOBS, then Ubuntu (from https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ARM/RaspberryPi). However I always found very slow frame rate when watching. On the other hand I see very good review about the Pi GPU. So, is the Pi 2 just not mean to be used this way or I'm missing some config?
