    I already posted several LibreELEC builds for MVR9, Rock64, ROC CC with 720p Netflix software decoding support.

    But seems no one even uses it. Search for it in the forums.

    Devices like the RockPi 4 RK3399 can even decode 1080p Netflix in LibreELEC with my image.


    I fixed the audio jack problem.

    You will have to wait until I build a new image in a day or 2, then you can test if it works.

    Everyone getting crackling audio

    Please post LibreELEC debug logs if you can, then it can help Rockchip to look into the issue faster and determine the cause.

    What happens if using interactive governor?

    I have problem with playing video with resolution 960x540 qHD with hevc, playing only sound. Other videos no problem.

    I have installed release LibreELEC-RK3328.arm-9.1.501-rock64.img.gz

    What could I set?

    Can you post some sample videos?

    It would be interesting to test it on different Rockchip devices.

    Does not work on mainline linux

    It's for Amlogic devices running Android Kodi or CoreELEC so won't work on Rockchip devices.

    I already tested it on an Amlogic device and it worked, shows a lot of useful video and display info.

    But I hope someone will be able to modify the addon to get Rockchip video parameters so it can be displayed when you press 'o', would be very interesting.

    I see some new patches for H.264 decoding : LKML: Ezequiel Garcia: [PATCH v5 00/11] media: hantro: Add support for H264 decoding

    Is it good for us if this land mainline ?

    Yes, since Linux OS's like LibreELEC, Armbian, Manjaro etc. will then also have out of the box video playback capabilities if using the latest mainline kernel without any tweaking, special drivers or old kernels that need to be used.

    Only H265, VP9 I think must still be added since mpeg2, mpeg4, H264, VP8, HDR, HDMI CEC I think are already far developed for the mainline kernel.

    The open-source Mal GPU Panfrost, Bitfrost drivers landing in the mainline kernel will also help a lot for the graphics acceleration to have a complete Linux experience.

    thanks mo123 , another question, i have a rock64, but i'm inclined to buy a rock64pro just to get the pci express dual sata card to connect 2 Hard disks.

    the question is does libreelec have drivers to support this card? so i can build a libreelec with 2 hard disks connected to the system?

    Best regards.

    You might need to add the drivers or make dts changes to the LE kernel and build your own image to support that or ask Pine64 if it works.

    How do you want to use an Android flash tool to write LibreELEC to EMMC?

    You write LibreELEC with etcher to a micro-sd card.

    I'm not aware of any compatible LibreELEC image for VS-RK3399.

    Gigabit ethernet is broken for all RK3328 devices at the moment., Kwiboo said he will look into it.

    It is working on the old 4.4 kernel images that are now discontinued.

    By running the MVR9 images on your device, you must make sure your device also uses DDR4 RAM otherwise in the long run it will cause wear & tear on your RAM chips and can also cause stuttering video playback if used on a DDR3 device.

    Kwiboo , we really need new images for testing, please :)

    No support for that Beelink device.

    But you can try all the images, maybe one will boot but wifi, bluetooth and ethernet will most likely not work.

    The device was also discontinued by them 3 months after release, so you also won't get any Android updates.

    TICTID, MVR9, ROC CC, Rock64 RK3328 are the only ones with mainline LE support.

    You have to wait until mainline Linux support is added for Rockchip devices.

    4.4 kernel images don't support audio passthrough.
