The rock 64 definitely runs slightly hotter than Amlogic chip quadcore boards I own.
Nothing to worry about. They lock up in the 80c temp.
Play the 720p or any file using Hardware acceleration and it stays in a safe temp zone .
Mine is in the acrylic perspex cover with the small heatsink.
If i play any sd content using software decoding i will get a heat lock up at around 80c nearly every time.
Thanks for the info; I was just measuring the temp with the builtin cputemp command but it seemed to work well enough.
How can I tell if the hardware decoding is working properly? Should it all be turned on already, or do I need to do some tinkering with from the stock Nightly build?
Someone mentioned having to manually enable hardware decoding on one of the recent pages of this thread, but I believe they were running an Armbian build.
