  1. First of all, for this multimedia integration to work, you need to be running the legacy kernel (4.4.x). You don't specify which kernel you are running. Second, AFAIK the only option to make HW encoding to work is gstreamer. This solution will install the required gstreamer plugin (see first post). But Jellyfin uses ffmpeg, so it is difficult that you can make it work with gstreamer, without editing the code and recompiling. Maybe another option is using a wrapper script that uses a ffmpeg pipe, and pointing the custom ffmpeg version from Jellyfin menu, but I have never tried something like that. Third, and most important, if you want to post any question, please follow the forum guidelines and provide all the necessary information.
  2. Sure, you can PM them to me, please. On a side note, I finally got to re-flash some image to my TV box, using a usb-c to usb-a cable on my laptop. This one seems to make the box run a bit hotter and maybe faster, I will try to investigate whether memory is clocked at 666MHz or not. [EDIT: No, all dmc opp's 400MHz and above are disabled. But the CPU opp at 1104MHz is runnig at a voltage of 1275/1275/1350, hence the heat. This is crazy...]
  3. No prob, I was counting on the possibility of bricking it, but it was just a 20€ crappy device laying around. And it is not bricked after all, yet it works faster than factory with Armbian, and even have WiFi, which I didn't expect 😆 I'm on vacation and I don't have any USB-OTG cable here, so I cannot use the RK flashing tool. There is an option to create an "upgrade SD card", but it only supports cards up to 16GB, not bigger (WTH?), and also requires a reset button which seems not to be present on the device. This also motivates me to spend some time finishing the media integration for Mainline, so I can at least use Kodi on this 😄
  4. Sorry, anybody has a stock-android flash backup for X88 Pro 10, made with jock's Multitool? I have been trying to use the official Rockchip tool to flash the firmware, but no luck, these devices are so crappy... (More info: I made a backup, but it is corrupted due to the 4Gb bug)
  5. @jock Thanks for the info. On a side note, I found a small bug: when making the emmc backup, if the resulting file is bigger than 4Gb it will just stop there (because of the FAT size limit) and you will get a broken backup. Probably could be solved by splitting the backup, for example along these lines: # Split backup in 2Gb parts, with two-character suffixes dd if=/dev/mmcblk1 | gzip -c | split -b 2000m - tvbox-backup.img.gz. # Restore the backup cat tvbox-backup.img.gz.* | gzip -dc | dd of=/dev/mmcblk1
  6. @jock I got some X88 pro 10 laying around, and tried your solution. It works great, I was able to boot from the multitool, and flash Armbian to the emmc. However, I am wondering if there is any possibility to keep the original Android on the emmc, and boot Armbian when plugged on a SD card/USB. After all, if it can boot the multitool with the original firmware on emmc, there must be some way to boot the full Armbian image, right? Maybe an issue with Mainline U-Boot, and you are using BSP u-boot for the multitool?
  7. You don't specify your board, but for example, if you scroll all the way down on this page, you will see the Buster Default Desktop image for download: https://www.armbian.com/nanopc-t4/
  8. Can you please do the whole process again from scratch? I mean, flashing again the SD card, and installing the multimedia framework. This time, please post all the output of the "apt-install" command. Also, please post the contents of /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/*
  9. I use the M1 with Armbian Buster and the Default (Legacy) kernel, and it works mostly fine except for Bluetooth. I know that some people find it more exciting to use the Mainline kernel, but for me Default/Legacy works better
  10. Not AFAIK, and also ISP camera support was planned but I am not sure of the current status. I think those are the two main points why someone would like to stay using legacy. I wanted to do some standard packages for all distros in mainline, but I have been overloaded since some time ago, and I am not sure when will I be able to have a look at it. I will announce if it becomes ready.
  11. First if all, if you want help you need to provide some basic information, like "armbianmonitor -u". Please read forum rules. Second, are you sure you are using a buster legacy image, not "current"?
  12. Moved to P2P help, since it is not a RK3399-specific issue, nor a bug. How are you connecting from your Windows machine? If you are using putty, it will work without setting this env variable, since putty will make its own proxy (in fact, this variable will break it). If you are using Window's built-in ssh client, then you need to do the config on the Windows side.
  13. Is there any available log from the meeting? Sorry for not attending, Saturday afternoons are busy for me sometimes.
  14. "I can't make it work" does not give any information. If you want somebody to help you, then you need to take the work to describe in detail your problem, what you have tried already, etc. And also, provide the basic information as specified in forum rules.
  15. I reverted the change, since you were using a different distro and that was causing the problem. You can revert my last commit and try. Anyway, I don't quite understand why you want to re-compile the packages that are already available on the Armbian repos.
  16. Please read the instructions. You need Armbian Buster with default kernel for this solution to work
  17. Please try again now, I think I fixed it.
  18. You need to provide more context, exactly all the steps you are following. I remember that the default cmake files for creating the deb packages needed some tweaks to avoid some errors, probably the error you are mentioning. But in my github fork of Kodi, they are already patched. You must be doing something different than my instructions.
  19. Did you try with the mpv I built? IIRC it is enabled there, though I may be wrong, it's been some time since last time I used it.
  20. I know nothing about Balena OS. But if you want to make Chromium acceleration work, the way we do it is contained in this package. Pay special attention to this config file.
  21. A little reading at https://linux-sunxi.org/A64 reveals that
  22. Hello. You are using a "current" image, for the camera to work you need a "legacy" image. There you have overlays to enable the rpi cameras, version 1 and 2, but I am not sure if the NoIR will work. You need to use the RK Gstreamer plugin from the RK Multimedia Framework, instructions on this post. Please share your results here, I am very interested to know if it works or not.
  23. No, I don't own a Rock64. I only tried HW encoding on the Tinker Board (RK3288), and quality was quite acceptable.
