Early community images for H3, H6 and A64

  • Hope Jernej is still here...


    I compiled latest hw_dec_ffmpeg branch for Pine A64+ and it works as described on my 2Gb board.

    Also I created two small patches to enable sunxi-ir on pine, perhaps you can include them into your branch, as I never submitted anything to mainline.

  • Worked ok. OPI PC

    but however most of codec use comes from tvh pvr, so as i was not able to compile to it as version is abit unknow.. :D

    Could you please on next release include pvr.hts ? there is none pvr installed or any menus for it. have satellite dish and dvb receivers, so there is alot codecs used, wanna test them all :)


    thanks for hard work, its almost there!

  • I just updated first post with new information and also uploaded brand new images.


    This port is by any means not dead. I'm just not following forum every day, especially when working on features, in this case, completely reworking HW decoding paths and improving drivers.


    New image has plenty of improvements, which might not be noticeable at first. However, there are few important ones:


    1. H264 decoding should work very well

    2. support for multi channel HDMI audio (correct audio output must be selected)

    3. ditching vaapi and using native ffmpeg interface (much better memory handling)

    4. improved H265 decoding

    5. Analog audio output (3.5 mm jack) is supported on H3

    6. A64 SoC support

    7. HDMI CEC improvements, although this feature depends on board - it works on some and it doesn't work on others.

  • Still no Beelink X2 wireless

    No, wireless is not something I want to work on. Linux 4.21 will have a ton of fixes important for wifi so I won't actually do that anything at least until 4.21 is out and probably support only few wireless chips after that (those which have driver included in kernel already).

  • Can't get to working ssh on OrangePi One. Freezes at different points of booting, usually at Libreelec splash, sometimes it gets to Kodi wallpaper, rarely to black screen with a mouse pointer (dead). U-boot stage works fine. Tried two memory cards with same results, both not brand new, unfortunately.

    Of course it's power. Turns out what's enough for running headless NixOS doesn't work with HDMI output enabled. It boots fine now, playback works great, experienced some Kodi restarts while background scanning smb share. Seems OrangePi One is too slow for use with additional add-ons.

    Edited once, last by Zoom ().

  • 1. good job H264

    2. H265 Some movies 24-frame problem some movies work normally some not

    3 No wants to rework the audio a little AC3 conversion . DTS to AC3 not work conversion

    4 HDMI CEC reboots my TV Philips. not work

    5 VC-1 codec add :)

    6 movie problems with .avi micro interruptions

    OrangePi PC test box good job must be activated SMB1 shared files work my pc windows10

  • nice work jernej !


    h264 works very well, everything what i tested worked under 20% cpu load.

    HDMI cec works fine (when hdmi goes to 1080p) board orange pi pc


    issues:

    it is like once of every 10 boot the device will go into 1080p screen resolution. just need reboot many times until it goes that mode, dunno whats happening there. when 1080p mode then audio, cec etc works how it suppose to work.

    PVR Clients still missing, ned tvheadend one, i cannot test satellite and dvb-t codecs. (they are most important how they run)

    could you please point me a direction how i get addon files there? i can do it myself, but i guess recompile whole thing is not a option?


    Happy xmas to all

  • it is like once of every 10 boot the device will go into 1080p screen resolution. just need reboot many times until it goes that mode, dunno whats happening there.

    What is screen resolution when it doesn't work? 1024x768? If yes then driver doesn't read out EDID correctly. I observed that before but rarerly, so it's hard to test anything.

    You could compile them yourself for now. First build will take a while, but following ones will be very quick. I'll try to set up proper repository soon.


    You can compile addon with:

    Code
    1. PROJECT=Allwinner ARCH=arm DEVICE=H3 scripts/create_addon pvr.hts

    Use my github repo mentioned in first post.

  • I downloaded the system for Orange Pi PC Plus and saw that it has update instruction on the homepage, I would like to know how I use the image to update, Thanks.
