Media center for BPI-R2?

Hi folks,

Is there any media center, like kodi, ready for BPI-R2?


install kodi should be no Problem…interesting was the question about hardware-acceleration of videos…tht can be a Problem. Also i’ve heared about HDMI-Problems…have you tried that?

i want to use the board as it was designed for…an router :wink: so i have not tested any of the multimedia-capability

why then such a video processor is needed? how not to play good quality video

Is hdmi working with your image?

You can try to build mali450-support with your kernel-source and this:

Tried to do as described in this forum, but does not work!

I’m far from Linux, but it seems to me that there is no data in the loading sheet for loading the installed drivers

As far as i know, driver for video-acceleration (vdpau/vaapi) is not the same as driver for opengl (mesa/dri)…

According to the spec of the GPU on gitbook, it should be possible however the driver will more likely need to be compile as mention by frank-w. I don’t believe you can software decode of HEVC/H.265 at 1080P@60fps. As per the armbian forum, make sure mali and mali_drm kernel modules are loaded.

Video decoder Multi-format FHD video decoding, including Mpeg1/2, Mpeg4, H.263, H.264, etc H.264 high profile 1080p@60fps, HEVC/H.265 1080P@60fps Video encoder VP8 encoder: 1080p@30fps H.264 encoder: high profile 1080p@30fps

Hello! there is a working version for Kodi?
