I don’t think that HW accelerated video decoding works there for the simple reason that
Cedrus/libvdpau support for A83T (as used on BPi M3) is missing
‘Team BPi’ is either too clueless or too lazy to add the few missing bits
they simply don’t know what they do
So they choose an Armbian image (we support HW acceleration only on our Jessie builds) that contains all the binaries necessary but the library stuff is missing. So when this jessie image I linked to will be used on a Banana Pi M2+ the stuff might work (that’s maybe why they added mpv/libvdpau to the ‘release notes’) but on M3 not.
I am trying to install the OS on banana pi M3.
However, It was unsuccessful.

If you know about these issues, please notify me.
(In my banana pi classic, I have never seen such a problem.)
Yes. unfortunately i’m ordered power adapter but not receiving yet.
So I am currently using a Micro USB port temporarily.
When I burn the “2015-11-21-raspbian-jessie-lite-bpi-m3-sd-emmc” version, it runs well.
but When I burn the “2016-05-13-raspbian-jessie-mate-gpu-bpi-m3-sd-emmc” version or others… , it rebooted infinite loop… .
They changed PMIC (power management IC) settings some time ago so you’re not able to use any recent OS image when trying to power through the Micro USB OTG port.
Whether this is a feature or a bug the @sinovoip support muppet might explain later (they ignore user questions and only jump in when they were poked). The whole problem is well known but since the @sinovoip support muppet is also responsible for product documentation this isn’t documented at all.
