Banana Pi M2+ [Off-Topic?]

Postby marco.hahn » Sat Aug 12, 2017 5:23 am

Has anybody succeeded to run a mythfrontend on a Banana Pi M2+?

The hardware allows playback of HEVC streams (e.g. DVB-T2 in Germany) as successfully tried with vlc3.0 beta. However, the OS (Ubuntu Mate 16.04) seems to be a rather low quality hack. mythfrontend is missing a This lib seems to be Raspberry Pi only and the OS is probably not correctly migrated from Raspberry to Banana Pi.

Sorry, if this may be off-topic. Any better place to look for help?

I did not have an answer, but I'm very interested in what you find out.
I'm searching for a lightweight client with the capabilities to play content at a 4K TV in order to replace my old atom frontends.

Best regards

MythTV has support for openmax decoding and rendering on the Raspberry Pi. Probably the Banana Pi does not support openmax, so it is not likely to work.
