Hardware Acceleration

Unread post by navdeepchani » Sun Aug 12, 2018 5:43 pm

Hi, I have just ordered a Odroid XU4 with linux on eMMC. I have been looking online and there appears to be some issues with hardware acceleration? I plan to use my Odroid XU4 to watch videos *cough* IPTV *cough* on VLC. I have attached an image of the codec and details of a typical stream. Will this be able to play streams? Also I have heard about android being better for videos. Will android handle MP4 streams better or are people talking about the YouTube app for Android being better than web browser on Linux.

there are 100 threads here and everywhere about VLC on SBCs - it doesn't work.
you can use ffmpeg players like mpv, or kodi.
