    amirul got a reaction from Seasalt in Some benchmarks of an inexpensive S912 TV box running Armbian   
    Thanks. They are all under 25USD when I got them on sale
    1. T95Z Plus 3Gb
    2. TX9 Pro 3Gb
    3. BM8 Pro 2Gb
    all running off sdcard. Didn't want to risk bricking them by installing to eMMC
     
    Maybe I'll try the Phoronix Benchmark Suite one of these days

    amirul reacted to balbes150 in Armbian for Amlogic S9xxx kernel 5.x   
    New version 5.73.
    1. A separate section for images with the s905 LIMA driver has been added to the catalog.  Notice is images in which there is only the kernel driver LIMA, HW support for DE until they do not. For HW you need to collect a special version of MESA-LIMA. I tried to build it, but I have a bug at the end of the build. May be there is a wish to collect the desired version of MESA-LIMA and help the process of the emergence HW to s905 ? 
     
    2. In the usual directory S905  Assembly for without driver LIMA.
     
    3. I built an FFMPEG package with support for decoding using HW. To check, you can download the package and install it in the system with the command "dpkg". When checking the work I was able to run FFMPEG command decode test video.
     
    HW
    ffmpeg -c:v h264_v4l2m2m -i Test.mkv -f null /dev/null
     
    not HW
    ffmpeg -c:v h264 -i Test.mkv -f null /dev/null
     
    When you start to S905 , when using the decoder with HW h264 decoding speed is equal to 11.9 , without using HW decoding speed is equal to 4.3. When tested on S912-with HW speed 12 , without HW speed 7.9.
     
    I tried running the video using ffplay.
     
    HW
    ffplay -vcodec h264_v4l2m2m Test.mkv
     
    not HW
    ffplay -vcodec h264 Test.mkv
     
    It shows the test video, the sound is correct, but the video is played in the braked mode (as if the deceleration is enabled). Maybe there's something I'm doing wrong when building or testing. I would appreciate it if someone could find a reason why the video is stalled.

    Burned the bionic verison to usbdrive. The extlinux.conf way didn't boot but the good old dtb.img way worked. I'm using the boxes as cheap X terminals and so far they're working great. At under $100 per seat, what's not to like, keeps getting better and better with each new image.
     
    BTW love the videos that come with the images :-)
