Pine64 - VLC 3.0.7 on debian buster

Recommended Posts


I need to use VideoLAN VLC on my Pine64, with Armbian Buster.

When I play an H264 mkv video, I got images too slow, and then it stops (like freeze). I think there is no hardware acceleration.

When I start with mpv through the command:


export VDPAU_DRIVER=sunxi
mpv --vo=vpdau --hwdec=vdpau --hwdec-codecs=all filename.mp4

I got this:

Playing: test.mkv
 (+) Video --vid=1 (*) (f) 'TST' (h264 1920x1080 23.976fps)
 (+) Audio --aid=1 --alang=eng (*) (f) 'ENG EAC-3 6ch @640kb/s' (eac3 6ch 48000Hz)
 (+) Subs  --sid=1 --slang=eng (*) (f) 'ENG FORCED' (subrip)
     Subs  --sid=2 --slang=eng 'ENG FULL' (subrip)
File tags:
 Title: test
[vo/vdpau] Error when calling vdp_device_create_x11: 25
Error opening/initializing the selected video_out (--vo) device.
Video: no video

How can I play an H264 video well? I need it for laboratory and classroom using a projector for programming learning.
