    FFMPEG with hardware accelerated H.264 decoder

    And many other features


Very powerful ARM streamline performance analyzer feature was included too.

You can download the OS image from this link.

We want to test this image with our forum members for a couple of weeks.
After fixing some issues, we will prepare a minimal image too.

ODROID-C2 and C1 Ubuntu 18.04 images will be available in early June hopefully.

There is no way to upgrade from 16.04 to 18.04 smoothly at this moment.
We are trying to find a workaround now.

If you have any issue, please post it on this sub-forum.
