Ubuntu would be also a good option. My personal opinion, only for web-browsing and Youtube things plus Kodi, Android would be a little bit easier.

Yes, it would work, but for accelerated video playback in browser you'd need hacks like odroid.c2.video.helper - and even then video is full screen.

It's not technically "in browser", you redirect (or even download upfront) the video to an external player and it's not at all started in the browser.
Donate to support my work on the ODROID GameStation Turbo Image for U2/U3 XU3/XU4 X2 X C1 as well as many other releases.
Check out the Games and Emulators section to find some of my work or check the files in my repository to find the software i build for ODROIDs.
If you want to add my repository to your image read my HOWTO integrate my repo into your image.

It can play, but with software decoding only (expect 480p/720p quality with high temperature >80C). That's why Android is better at this task.

Here is a shameless plug -:) for our (www.volkspc.org) distribution for ODROID-C2.
It runs both Android and Debian Jessie. Androids runs at native speeds and is great for consuming content.
While Debian Jessie is an awesome desktop that runs faster thanks to our graphics stack ( https://volkspc.org/linux-microxwin-graphics/ ).

I was thinking of your work reading this thread Vasant, but will chrome run with hardware accelerated video on Android?

Yes, Android is fully accelerated and works exactly as the image provided by HK. Conceptually you can think of Debian as an application running on top of Android kernel and Android Init.

I understand, I thought it was the other way round. Very nice.
