KODI is running under OpenElec, so that proves it's possible to run on OrangePi (plus)

Has anyone actually got it running now on Debian Jessie?

I'm running Debian8_jacer_2.img and if I attempt to run kodi it crashes unable to set resolution.

Is there a source version of kodi (from openelec) that will run under this debian image, with hardware acceleration?

It would seem that the Mali drivers work now, so why won't kodi run?

Thanks,
HDMan

You should probably ask Jernej if it was possible and how much work would be involved in getting Kodi to run properly under Debian Jessie. I would be interested too.

One of the reasons why I choose to port OpenELEC on OPi and not only Kodi is that I have full control over whole enviroment. That way is easier to ensure better performance or that things even work. I never tried to build Kodi on Debian for OPi. That being said, I don't see any reason why it would not be possible to run Kodi on Debian. Currently, OpenELEC is using 16.0 RC1 source code with following patches: https://github.com/jernejsk/Open ... cts/H3/patches/kodi Fell free to try. However, don't count on me much. I lost interest due to poor drivers and completely open source version on horizon.

May I inquire as to what do you mean with "completely open source version on horizon?" It is a shame you lost interest as you seem to know quite a bit and have a good handle on these things, but I suppose we can't blame you for that, either.

As you probably know, my implementation is using binary version of CedarX made by Allwinner. This implementation http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread. ... =2199415#pid2199415 is using libvdpau-sunxi which is completely open source. Currently, aforementioned Kodi doesn't have H3 support but it should not be hard to add because libvdpau-sunxi itself supports H3.

Probably now I know much more about these things than most of you, but I learnt enough just in a few months, so someone else could do that too. Currently I don't even use Kodi and I probably won't for months. One of the main reasons why I did it was to shut up people who said that it is impossible to have HW acceleration on Linux. I could argue that there is libvdpau-sunxi but I thought that this would have a greater impact

I'm also a fan of theory that prototypes should be thrown away and production quality code should be written from scratch based on lessons learned from prototype. This project is no different. There is a lot of things that I would do differently and better if I would start from scratch. But for that I have no interest or time.
