    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.

    Yeah i didn't know about your build ?

    is it that file ? LibreELEC-RK3328.arm-9.1-devel-20190314143101-e738c7b-roc-cc.img.gz

    The RockPi4 is more powerfull than the rock64, that's why i think 1080p is playing fine, but i'm still looking to get it on the rock 64

    I come back with some bad news unfortunatly.

    Video playback in youtube as ElBoluTony say work fine, like youtube.

    The reason why we can"t play 1080p (and 720p, it's not pleasant...) is because the Netflix addons and the Amazon prime video extension use the CPU to "decrypt" windevine DRM protected content.

    Our rock64 has only L3 Windevine, while we need L1. So that L1 is "emulated" and use a lot of CPU ressources, because the GPU is in this case : totally useless , that's why the playback is not good, Rock64 is not powerfull enough...

    Don't know what we can do more, i love that device, but seriously i start to hate it, we can do nothing on it... Android TV, you can dream to use netflix or amazon prime video app, even if it was, it will be SD video playing because of L1 DRM

    Unfortunatly on lLibrelec, we have a chance but the L1 emulation use too much power, don't know if it fixable

    Hi, i'm using the emmc module (16 gb, yeah that explain the high cpu usage when decoding video, maybe i've a good news, but i think it strange that i can't find any information about that.

    Apparently, someone make a build for libreelec and some people say that hardware decoding is working on his build, i will try it, but i don't understand if that person find the solution, why he is not sharing it ?. Edit i was wrong, actually this guy is helping ^^ thank to him

    Unfortunatly, no hardware acceleration, same situation with his build, now i will test with android + kodi

    Another solution i was asking myself this morning was to use Kodi on android build (ayufan), but.. i think we are going to have the same DRM issues with the netflix app..i guess, i'm not sure

    I installed Librelec on my Rock 64 today,

    I don't have any particular freeze, i've got the 4 Go DDR3 version, the only difference is the PSU, i had to buy a PSU from amazon because the rock "stock" one just got killed without doing anything.. (One day i plug my rock64 and my rock led were blinking like crazy, after a bit of research with my multimeter, the PSU wasn't capable anymore to power my rock, so i changed it).

    Unfortunatly i got a issue with video playback. 720p, i don't have a FPS counter on the screen but the framerate i think is about 20 FPS, also in 1080p (even worse).

    I tried with youtube, and unofficial Amazon and Netflix app (those two apps are my goal, i've leave android tv because i can"t use them anymore due to windevine L3 only. Then i tried on librelec and both apps are working fine, execpt the video is laggy (not buffery)

    What's the issue ?
