Thanks for your help Dave
  2. Thanks Bozden mpv --fs --vo=vdpau --hwdec=vdpau /path/to/file works very well The problem is a lack of an easy to use interface. as well as the video is on all desktops that is why I prefer to use smplayer is it posible to use --vo=vdpau --hwdec=vdpau in smplayer? Dave
  3. I had looked at before. That is why I am confused with the video playback. I just noticed that it talks about dev/mainline kernel. I am still using the legacy kernel Linux orangepiplus2e 3.4.113-sun8i #18 SMP PREEMPT Thu Jun 15 02:16:06 CEST 2017 armv7l armv7l armv7l GNU/Linux Dave
  4. I Installed armbian_5.25_orangepiplus2e_ubuntu_xenial_default_3.4.113_desktop.7z How can I find out which codec is being used? Thanks for your help Dave
  5. OrangePi plus2e how do I get hardware acceleration to work in smplayer? I am recording tv using tvheadend and trying to play back using smplayer. I have tried the available options for video output driver and X11 (slow) is by far the best but is not useable as there is still alot of stuttering. top shows 138% mpv usage vdpau is colored almost horizontal lines All help is appreciated Dave
  6. Thanks igor for the link I assume there is no other menu program to choose which boot option is available? Dave
  7. Orange Pi Plus 2e How do I clone the SD card and both have boot capability? I am new to the concepts of Pi's so I am looking to slowly add abilities to the pi and have a working clone which I can use when I stuff it up. I have also seen no mention of grub being used anywhere. My main computer is a amd 64 with Debian running but I can use my laptop with win 8.1 on it but would prefer a solution which I can use on Debian Thanks for your help Dave
