Thanks for you answer.

 

I tried a lot the last days, and I noticed that the Armbian Ubuntu build is ready to use. So I downloaded it and installed it on sd.

And everything was working, so I tried to install kodi and it also worked.  In a quick test I noticed that the video quality is not very good.

I also installed vlc and the video quality was the same, also with mpv.

Even watching YouTube is just with 480p possible, above it is not not ok.

 

I found something about Hardware Accelerating, but I belief it’s already integrated in this apps.

 

Is there something I can to, to make it better?

 

Or is this the maximum of this cpu/gpu, what I can accept.

 

Greetings

Video acceleration works only with preinstalled mplayer as a demonstration and can be probably used as a player within KODI. But this is out of my interest area - never done it.

 

Youtube the same. There is some ytplayer which plays the stream on mplayer and again, it works accelerated.

I made many test and i found out that:

The preinstalled mpv player works, 720p with about 20% cpu usage. Even 1080p works as long as u don’t move the window.

The GTK Youtupe player works also.

 

It looks like kodi don’t support the Hardware Acceleration, with the same 720p file, the cpu usage gets to 80% and the playback is jerky.

Looks like Kodi use its one video player.

Found something about here:

Why the Acceleration works only with mpv? 

 

The PVR add-ons are also not working, I can install it and activate it but they are not running and every restart of kodi I get a message to activate it.

 

I can live with that issues, or I use this board for some think different.

 

The Cpu in this board is powerful .

The Gpu is good enough for desktop, but compared with TV boxes its weak, should have checked this before buying.

 

Thank to all  for you work and  this operating system

Because it was built with a proper support. What you are asking is enough work for a serious project, not something that we could fix on a side.  OSMC, https://osmc.tv is a good example of this. It looks seemingly big project while their "single task" is to make KODI working on top of Debian base. It looks it runs smoothly, but only on Rpi, Vero and Apple.

At least not for KODI. Even H3 boards are better for this since we have a good working (older) version of Openelec.

Software support is making electronics useful. Remember that before buying some fancy TV box claiming super specs while running crappy Android without getting an update.

This for example? 

 

It has the same gpu as the A64.

Known issues

 

Mainline kernel images (all boards) (next/dev branches)

No Mali drivers

No hardware accelerated video decoding

 

looks like the ASUS-Tinker-Board ist better.
