Have you tried the libvdpau-sunxi hardware acceleration? This thread is about this way: https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread ... =2199415#pid2199415 using SBCs I don't have, but close enough. I think we can get a full hardware video acceleration in a close future targeting H3 and H5 devices without any license issue on the video part. Mali will be the last concern.

All the main software parts are there DE2, Cedar, Mali...; Targeting the mainline kernel is likely the proper way.

This is for A10/A20, not H3/H5. And it is a huge mess, too many issues to be solved. I tryed it before and was not possible to compile even libvdpau-sunxi from this repos. Maybe there is some progress in the meantime, but still this is too complex to compile and run, not even in alpha version state. For this to be adapted to H3+, some person with needed knowledge have to adapt it. For example, H3 is missing G2D processor for OSD (subtitles) and used ION for memory reservations, so maybe this double buffering used in A20 will not be the same for H3+. Seems like no one with that knowledge is interesting of this, anyway. About mainline, i don't know at what point is development there now, but lastly i read, there is some video driver for HDMI (but no sound) and no one is working on h/w video acceleration. So too early for anything there yet. The only workable solution for now, is jernej port with cedarx.

Indeed, once libvdpau-sunxi (mosterta) is compiled on my orangepi pc, I have other issues too; The libUMP library targets version 2 (UMP_IOCTL_API_VERSION); And the ump kernel driver from mali r6p2 I have is at the api version 3. Some cleanup or updates are already required here...

The mosterta implementation targets Mali using the fbdev mode, and the NV_vdpau_interop emulation is already implemented; So the layers to pass the decoded video to the GPU (GLES) are already written. And G2D is useless here.

This is likely the only implementation that can work on the H5. The only Mali blob working for sure is an aarch64 one: mali450r5p001rel0linux1fbdevarm64v8a, and I don't know if a cedarx aarch64 blob compatible is available too.

Indeed a lot of cleanup are required, but a lot of work is already done; And I'm sure we can get this implemention working on the mainline kernel too (Mali r6p2 is already usable on the mainline kernel...).

Nope. Kodi17 on OrangePi won't happen. Forget it.

@glaur500, OpenELEC isn't too interested, but, LibreELEC already has 14.1. The real question should be, when will either, have internal VPN & SSH protection available?
