    JMCC got a reaction from zogu in Armbian for TV box rk3328   
    These are the areas that need more testing:
    Using MPV and Gstreamer video players, and reporting performance. We need to choose which of the two will be the default player in the Armbian multimedia implementation. Performance of Chromium streaming, playing unencrypted videos (e.g. Youtube) at different resolutions, and also DRM encrypted videos (Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, etc.). General desktop experience, when using regular desktop apps (text editors, pdf readers, libreoffice, etc). Thx.

    And, for last,  the first version of:
    The UN-official, UN-supported, UN-expected
    RK3328 MEDIA TESTING SCRIPT
     
    This is the first release of the RK3328 media testing script. The script provides a functionality similar to its RK3288/3399 equivalents, except for the OpenCL related stuff, which is not supported by the SoC. So it includes:
    Installing all the libraries and system configurations necessary for GPU accelerated X desktop, Chromium WebGL, full VPU video play acceleration up to 4k@60 10-bit HEVC (the maximum supported by the SoC), and GLES 2.0 support. Three video players supporting full VPU acceleration (RKMPP) and KMS display (GBM or a X11 DRM "hack", as described by the authors), namely: MPV, Gstreamer and Kodi. A library that will act as an OpenGL to OpenGL-ES wrapper, allowing you to run programs that use OpenGL 1.5-2.0. Two additional features, that have no big interest from the Armbian development prospective, but I find them interesting to play with: Chromium browser with support for Flash and DRM-protected commercial web video streaming (tested with Amazon Prime, should also work with Netflix, Hulu, etc.), and a simple Pulseaudio GTK equalizer using LADSPA.  
    Here is a more thorough documentation:

    Notes:
    This script is not officially supported by the Armbian project. It is just a community effort to help the development of the main build, by experimenting with a possible implementation of the media capabilities of this particular SoC. Therefore, questions about the script should not be laid out as support requests, but as commentaries or community peer-to-peer assistance. That being said, all commentaries/suggestions/corrections are very welcome. In the same way, I will do my best to help solve any difficulty that may arise regarding the script.

    Yes, I noticed that if you launch it just like "kodi", it won't start here, unlike the RK3399 where it worked.
     
    The cause seems to be that "standard" mali midgard T86x binaries have the necessary GBM symbols that Kodi uses, while in the case of utgard 450 you need to use the specific binaries for GBM.
     
    Solution: launch it in one of these two ways:
    LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/libmali-gbm kodi or:
    kodi-gbm-wrapper

    the browser now shows videos in full screen all up to 4K, the only limitation is the channel in the Internet.
    MPV-also shows everything in full screen
    KODI -  not yet started up, complains that it is impossible to create the GUI (this is not critical, KODI is LE, everything works)

    Yes, it runs fulscreen with no mouse support. You can control it with a remote control via LIRC, or with the keyboard. Arrows, space, Q for quit and shift-Q for save position and quit. "man mpv" will give you the whole list of controls.
     
    Well, the wrapper is a very basic implementation, meant to stop nodm, which is the default Armbian DM. If you are using lightdm instead, you must edit the file "/usr/local/bin/kodi-gbm-wrapper" 
     
    Or just do it manually: Ctrl+alt+F1, "sudo service lightdm stop", "kodi"
