over-heating while playing video with VLC/mpv

Recommended Posts

On Rock64, I use youtube-dl CLI app.to download the video (720p) during my off-peak bandwidth time, and watch with MPV or VLC later in fullscreen (1920x1080).  It plays OK, but this drives the temperature up to 89-92 ! This is a monitor of the results: http://davekimble.net/problem.video.replay.txt .

I think the dropped frames are because of 25 fps v 60 fps of the monitor.  I know it is a lot of work, but any ideas for reducing the workload welcome.

 

Anybody else get this?

More or less installing the Mali userspace blob and properly linking it is the only thing I can recommend, aside from deciphering and implementing the video decoder driver how-to the way @JMCC has on RK3288.

Seems like the community is seriously demanding 64 bit versions of the RK media script (3399 and 3328). Give me some days, I'll work on it.
