I am running Armbian v5.14 / 5.6.2016 with kernel 3.14.112 on Orange Pi PC Plus

I've installed Kodi from debian repo and it is running fine, how ever, player video is a bit slow (tried both over network, usb or local storage), the wierd thing is playing the same video using the local multi player "mpv multiplayer" works like a charm.

the HW acceleration option on Kodi is greyed out, i was wondering if settings can be changed manually ? for HW acceleration Armbian supports it since 5.10 according to Release History

What i am missing ?

Unmodified Kodi doesn't use VDPAU on ARM chips. Current workaround is to use mpv as a player, as ARMgunnaservu said.

Hi, I'm trying to make Kodi work under Armbian for my Orange Pi PC and I started following the tutorial on that ua3nbw provided the link to. Before begining that tutorial, though, there's a link to installing Kodi 18 alpha but some of the steps don't work. When I try the wget code, it tells me invalid options. I'm not very Linux savvy. I really wanted to make Kodi work under an OS desktop, not Kodi on OpenELEC. Did you guys really made things work?
