• Before reporting problems with your board running Armbian, check the following:

    • 1. Check power supply, check SD card and check other people experiences

      Power supply issues are one of the three biggest issues you'll face when starting with Single Board Computers (SBCs). SD card issues, whether fake or faulty, are another and issues resulting from poor board design is the other common issues you can encounter.   Power supply issues can be tricky. You might have a noisy power supply that works with one board because it has extra filtering, but won't work with another. Or you're using that cheap phone charger because your board has a microUSB connector, and it is either erratic, or doesn't start up, or even becomes the cause of some SD card issues.    Some tips to avoid the most common causes of problems reported:   Don't power via micro USB  - unless you have optimised your setup for low power requirements. Micro USB is great for mobile phones because they are simply charging a battery. It's bad for SBCs. Yes, it does work for a lot of people, but it also causes more problems and headaches over time than it is worth, unless you know exactly what you are doing. If you have a barrel jack power connector on your SBC, use it instead! If there is an option for powering via header connections, use that option!
        Don't use mobile phone chargers. They might be convenient and cheap, but this is because they are meant for charging phones, not powering your SBC which has particular power requirements.
        When you are evaluating a power supply, make sure you run some stress tests on your system to ensure that it will not cause issues down the path.   (Micro) SD card issues can be sneaky. They might appear right at the start causing strange boot and login errors, or they might cause problems over time. It is best to run a test on any new SD card you use, to ensure that it really is what it is, and to ensure that isn't faulty. Armbian provides you a simple way to do this   --   armbianmonitor -c /path/to/device/to/test  

    • 2. Make sure to collect and provide all necessary information

      We can only help if you provide quality information for us to work with. All stable images from the download section are tested, most stable upgrades are tested and we have tens of thousands of users. Even with regular and extensive testings, bugs sometimes do slip through. This is a voluntary support service and is unrelated to board makers, and is not obligated to provide you any answers. Repeated asking the same questions because you're not happy with the answers will result in you being ignored.

      Before you post a question, use the forum search as someone else might have already had the same problem and resolved it. And make sure you've read the Armbian documentation. If you still haven't found an answer, make sure you include the following in your post:   1. Logs when you can boot the board: armbianmonitor -u (paste URL to your forum post)   2. If your board does not boot, provide a log from serial console or at least make a picture, where it stops.   3. Describe the problem the best you can and provide all necessary info that we can reproduce the problem. We are not clairvoyant or mind readers. Please describe your setup as best as possible so we know what your operating environment is like.     We will not help in cases you are not using stable official Armbian builds, you have a problem with 3rd party hardware or reported problem would not be able to reproduced.

Does armbian support h.265 video codec?

 

It seems that mpv player can reproduce only audio...

 

Should we install any codec?

 

thanks in advance

5.10 server installed

Libvdpau-sunxi are preinstalled

Downloaded a sample video -> checked 8bit with mediainfo

Video is not showing, only audio.

 

Is there a way to check if codec are running?

 

Probably i'm too noob for orangepi :)

If you install the Desktop version of Armbian 5.10 then the following list of codecs (containing h.265 with 8 bit but not 10 bit!) is available for HW accelerated decoding: http://linux-sunxi.org/Cedrus#Supported_codec_matrix

 

 

Is 8 Bit versus 10 Bit a limitation. Can the Orange Pi PC with Armbian 1.10 decode all HEVC 8 or 10 bit encoding to 8 bit decoding, or can it ONLY do 8bit encoded to 8 bit decoding?

 

Seasalt.

I don't know how build-in mpv in Desktop Armbian behave. But i am using my own built of mpv and it play h265 video fine. I tried several videos, including 4k resolution and they all played with very low CPU usage. OPI PC is great device for such purpose, fueled by Armbian, of course :). I don't know if you want to try this, but here are the basic steps i think should be enough to build it yourself too. Some of this may be redundant, but this way works for me.

 

First the newest version of libvdpau-sunxi is needed for h265 and especially for subtitles support. As i don't know what is in Desktop Armbian, i will post this too. First make some temporary directory, it's "t". located in ~home in my example. We need livdpau>=1.1, so:

cd t
wget http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/main/libv/libvdpau/libvdpau1_1.1.1-3_armhf.deb
wget http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/main/libv/libvdpau/libvdpau-dev_1.1.1-3_armhf.deb
wget http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/main/v/vdpauinfo/vdpauinfo_1.0-1+b1_armhf.deb
sudo dpkg -i libvdpau1_1.1.1-3_armhf.deb
sudo dpkg -i libvdpau-dev_1.1.1-3_armhf.deb
sudo dpkg -i vdpauinfo_1.0-1+b1_armhf.deb

Then libvdpau-sunxi:

git clone https://github.com/linux-sunxi/libcedrus.git
cd libcedrus
make
sudo make install
cd ..

wget http://cairographics.org/releases/pixman-0.34.0.tar.gz
tar -xzvf pixman-0.34.0.tar.gz
cd pixman-0.34.0
./configure
make -j4
sudo make install
cd ..

git clone https://github.com/linux-sunxi/libvdpau-sunxi.git
cd libvdpau-sunxi
make
sudo make install

We need to "export VDPAU_DRIVER=sunxi", "export VDPAU_DISABLE_G2D=1" and for subtitles support "export VDPAU_OSD=1". As i had a lot of troubles with this and never new for sure where is the correct place for this, i do it in several places. So put this:

export VDPAU_DRIVER=sunxi
export VDPAU_OSD=1
export VDPAU_DISABLE_G2D=1

in /etc/environment , in /home/"user"/.bashrc  and in /etc/X11/Xsession.d/ create file named "90environment" (sudo nano /etc/X11/Xsession.d/90environment) and put the lines there too. This is all done for libvdpau-sunxi.

 

For mpv, first get dependencies:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get build-dep libav
sudo apt-get build-dep mpv

If you want youtube support, install youtube-dl:

sudo curl https://yt-dl.org/downloads/2016.02.27/youtube-dl -o /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl
sudo chmod a+rx /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl

Install x264:

git clone git://git.videolan.org/x264.git
cd x264
./configure --enable-static --enable-shared
make -j4
sudo make install
sudo ldconfig
cd ..

and get x265:

sudo apt-get install mercurial cmake cmake-curses-gui build-essential
hg clone https://bitbucket.org/multicoreware/x265

There is a bug here and we can't build shared libraries, so before compilation open this file x265/source/common/primitives.cpp (sudo nano x265/source/common/primitives.cpp) and at the end remove the lines i marked with "-" in front:

- #if ENABLE_ASSEMBLY && X265_ARCH_ARM == 0
  void PFX(cpu_neon_test)(void) {}
  int PFX(cpu_fast_neon_mrc_test)(void) { return 0; }
- #endif
  }
  #endif

now compile and install x265:

cd x265/build/linux
./make-Makefiles.bash
make -j4
sudo make install
sudo ldconfig
cd ~/t

I used to install some other codecs, but this should be enough for most people. Now the mpv itself:

sudo apt-get install git devscripts equivs
git clone https://github.com/mpv-player/mpv-build.git
cd mpv-build
./update
rm -f mpv-build-deps_*_*.deb
mk-build-deps -s sudo -i

.deb part is to get some more dependencies. This may not be necessary, but i remember i had build errors because of this before.

Put some options for ffmpeg:

echo --enable-nonfree >> ffmpeg_options
echo --enable-gpl >> ffmpeg_options
echo --enable-version3 >> ffmpeg_options
echo --enable-vdpau >> ffmpeg_options
echo --enable-libass >> ffmpeg_options
echo --enable-libfdk-aac >> ffmpeg_options
echo --enable-libfreetype >> ffmpeg_options
echo --enable-libmp3lame >> ffmpeg_options
echo --enable-libopus >> ffmpeg_options
echo --enable-libtheora >> ffmpeg_options
echo --enable-libvorbis >> ffmpeg_options
echo --enable-libvpx >> ffmpeg_options
echo --enable-libpulse >> ffmpeg_options
echo --enable-libv4l2 >> ffmpeg_options
echo --enable-libx264 >> ffmpeg_options
echo --enable-libx265 >> ffmpeg_options
echo --enable-libmpv-shared > mpv_options

If you miss some of this codecs just skip the line, or remove it later from ~/t/mpv-build/ffmpeg_options file. Finish building and installation:

./rebuild -j4
sudo ./install

That's all

 

Optionally, you can add your config in file, so you don't write it every time - sudo nano /usr/local/etc/mpv/mpv.conf :

vo=vdpau
hwdec=vdpau
framedrop=vo
hwdec-codecs=all
ao=alsa:device=[hw:1,0]
slang=bg,en,
fs=yes

"slag" line is for subtitles, you can replace "bg" with your language, or remove it at all.

How many time needs this part:

 

now compile and install x265:

cd x265/build/linux
 

-->   ./make-Makefiles.bash > c , g

 

it hangs at this point.

 

 

later:

the process isnt finishing without mistakes.

 

eg.

How many time needs this part:

 

now compile and install x265:

cd x265/build/linux

 

-->   ./make-Makefiles.bash > c , g

 

 

ERROR: libfdk_aac not found

 

You have to execute ./make-Makefiles.bash only, then press "c" for configure and then press "g" for generate. Sorry if it's been unclear, but it's written in cmake description, i just put this there for my ease. And before this, you have to modify primitives.cpp file, as i wrote, or you will have error during "make".

About other problem i can't help you much, i don't understand german :). Seems like you have some conflict with libegl1-mesa-dev:armhf . Try to install libegl1-mesa-dev manually and repeat this step.

And the last i already mention. In "echo --enable-xxx >> ffmpeg_options" i add some codecs i installed before, which i don't mention, because i think only x264 and x265 are important and Armbian/Debian have most of these codecs built-in. If you have some not found error in ffmpeg build part, just remove this line in ~/t/mpv-build/ffmpeg_options file and repeat ./rebuild . If you still have error after this, that's mean this is crucial component and can't be skipped. In this case you have to install it first and repeat. I guess libfdk_aac is important, so you can build it this way:

cd t
wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/opencore-amr/fdk-aac-0.1.4.tar.gz
tar xzvf fdk-aac-0.1.4.tar.gz
cd fdk-aac-0.1.4
./configure --prefix=/usr --disable-static
make -j2
sudo make install

 Thank you - it works

RagnerBG,

 

I couldn't find 

- #if ENABLE_ASSEMBLY && X265_ARCH_ARM == 0

in

x265/source/common/primitives.cpp

but I find 

#if X265_ARCH_ARM

 

so I remove this.
However while "make -j4", I have this error

RagnerBG,

in

x265/source/common/primitives.cpp

but I find 

#if X265_ARCH_ARM

Huh, this is my favorite developers behavior. Make some minor change and ruin something that hasn't any problems before. You are right, i check it and my "fix" doesn't work any more. The primitives.cpp file is the same, except those 2 lines, but built failing with or without it. And i have to note, the whole last lines of this file are the "fix" for ARM architecture, discovered before, but this checking in "#if ENABLE_ASSEMBLY && X265_ARCH_ARM == 0" doesn't work, so i just remove it. Maybe it's because there is separate build instructions for ARM - ARM Instructions, but when i try to execute "./make-Makefiles.bash" in "x265/build/arm-linux" i got permission denied, but you may try this as well if you know what to fix, i can only guess, it searching for something missing in armbian system.

Anyway, i can suggest you to using old working source, before those changes, for now. I upload it here - http://upload.bg/?get_file=87234dc02d9099cb8aedc5b156ce4468b155a41b . And i intend to keep to it until someone find solution for newest version. Basically, if you try this on OrangePi PC, you should not need to build it, just untar it, enter "x265/build/linux" and execute "sudo make install". If something is not right (for example, because i use X11 version of mali driver, instead of framebuffer, as in Armbian Desktop), built it again with the above steps and maybe clean old build files before this, comparing with original source. As far, as i remember, only make-Makefiles.bash, need to be in x265/build/linux .

I manage to get it working

What I did, comment out in x265/source/common/primitives.cpp

 
/*
#if X265_ARCH_ARM
void PFX(cpu_neon_test)(void) {}
int PFX(cpu_fast_neon_mrc_test)(void) { return 0; }
#endif // X265_ARCH_ARM
*/
 
then after execute ./make-Makefiles.bash, need to choose "ENABLE_PIC = ON" then press c, g
 
everything compile OK

however now I have problem execute mpv, got this error below

any idea? 
 
pi@bananapim2plus:~/Videos$ mpv Wildlife.wmv

I just tried the same file, taken from here and it plays fine:

30hm2zc.jpg

There is something on your side. With quick google-ing this either have something with environment variables, or with some modules not loaded, or have no correct permissions. Did you try this on Armbian Desktop, or add environment variables manually, as i shown above? "export VDPAU_DRIVER=sunxi" need to be set and perhaps before ffmpeg and mpv build, although it's usually there by default. I have the following modules in /etc/modules for H3:

disp
ump
mali
drm
mali_drm
ion

I also create file named 50-mali.rules in /etc/udev/rules.d , with the following contents for correct permissions:

KERNEL=="mali", MODE="0660", GROUP="video"
KERNEL=="ump", MODE="0660", GROUP="video"
KERNEL=="disp", MODE="0660", GROUP="video"
KERNEL=="fb*", MODE="0660", GROUP="video"
KERNEL=="cedar_dev", MODE="0660", GROUP="video"
KERNEL=="ion", MODE="0660", GROUP="video"

You may try this as well. Or just start everything from scratch on clean image. This manual building is a little catchy and i always have sort of different results in every new try, even if i follow exactly the same steps.

Can someone please enlighten me why it should be necessary going through 'this manual building' at all? We provide Server and Desktop versions of our OS images. The desktop version at least for H3/A10/A20 should already contain all the stuff that's needed to get HW accelerated video decoding (using mpv -- list of supported codes is still here). So where's the benefit trying to build this stuff from source?

 

I still want to understand the whole issue so that we might eventually be able to save users the hassles going through this since we simply add the missing stuff to the build system. Shouldn't it be better to improve the build process so that everything that's needed is part of a new Armbian image (and comes with apt-get update/upgrade)?

Hi Kaiser,

 

I have desktop image from armbian.com for banana pi m2 plus platform and mpv is not working with that fresh image

Since not working, then try apt-get update and apt-get upgrade, but still not working

That's why I'm trying different things

As for me, it's necessary because things works better with 'this manual building', at least for me. And i find LXDE more confortable as desktop environment. I appreciate your efforts to support more boards and to cover more functions and aspects, but i need to tweak thing a little for my easy. Armbian is almost perfect in hardware and networking support, but as you already mentioned, multimedia need more attention and is not yours main goal (nor mine, but it's fun to play with it :) ). I really would like to have newer mali driver in hands and to avoid all this vdpau workaround, but as i already read here, more skillful man is needed to cover this. Til then i read here and there and prefer to do thing my way, if i am able.

Add those permission in 50-mali.rules in /etc/udev/rules.d helps. Now mpv working when playing locally

Now I try to play mpv via remote using X2GO

mpv is executing well, but no video (blank)

I don't see any error message either ....

You have any idea what's I'm missing?

Sorry, i can't be of much help here. I planned to deal with remote desktops sooner, but have no experience yet. I know that most of protocols doesn't support a/v streaming, so it's normal to see black screen. There where some topics here and a sort of walkthroughs about this. From @hatahata and some other, i don't remember nickname, so check it out.
