Hi there
I am new with OrangePI and general in Linux. I performed steps from quick installation instruction from OrangePI main page and I was able to run Lubuntu (newest image) successfully. I open Chromium and went to youtube.com. All videos (even 360p) are slideshow rather than video.
What should I do to have youtube running in at least 720p ? I haven't configure anything in Lubuntu. In "Additional drivers" list there is no driver at all to install, chromium is said to be latest version.

I have the same problem. I tried with smplayer's youtube browser too, and I've got the same results. The videos even in 360p, are like a slideshow but only in fullscreen. I've installed all the restricted extras and addons, but nothing is changed.
