    xwiggen got a reaction from Werner in SBC with proper software support for hardware video transcoding   
    If you're planning to do 4K do read https://forums.plex.tv/t/info-plex-4k-transcoding-and-you-aka-the-rules-of-4k/378203

    On my headless machines I usually skip user creation and enable SSH pubkey login only after transferring my key (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/SSH_keys)
     
    IMHO the reason for not allowing root login (whether SSH or getty) is both to prevent wreaking havoc on the system by accident and not running processes elevated by default (which is a good security measure -- privileged account management). I'm just too lazy to type sudo as I do only configuration/package/service management on the machines.

    The  transcoding is handled by the jellyfin-ffmpeg package, which is basically a fork of ffmpeg. You can specify your own path to ffmpeg binary in settings, as the supplied binary is linked with raspberry libs (which is the only rpi specific code of jellyfin).
    Raspberry pi is ok for VPU.
     
    @Wernertry jellyfin on your NEO3 and compile ffmpeg with --enable-version3 --enable-rkmpp --enable-drm
     
    Personally I don't use transcoding but leave it all to the RPI3 (LibreElec) which happily plays all formats from SMB except for 10bit x265.

    Allwinner H3 for headless low-demanding tasks, excellent support/stability and surprisingly tough for a low end dirt-cheap soc.

    Ok much better, but at the moment I have no idea this is happening.
    The libreelec boot is somehow engaged because the behaviour changes if you leave the sdcard into, but the reason why it hangs is not clear to me yet.
    I will try to replicate soon on a board of mine
     
    edit: @jaum20 problem solved! Long story short: substitute the file rk3228a-box-mxq4kpro.dtb in the root of the libreelec sdcard with the one attached here. Important: if you're going to update/upgrade LibreELEC, you will need to replace again this file. This is a "problem" I will likely ask to @knaerzche if it can be solved somehow.
     
    Detailed answer for experts: the device tree with the legacy kernel is missing the property arm,cpu-registers-not-fw-configured in the timer section. It is needed on armbian but it is not needed on Libreelec because armbian has OPTEE as trust os (which requires the property), instead Libreelec uses the proprietary u-boot and trust os (which does the timer initialization by itself).

    Very cool. Remember saving for a BeBox after that.
