GPU/RAM Split, VAAPI and Emby on ODROID-C2

Post by nwcatalyst »

Hey team,

I'm trying to get my C2 to play nicely with Emby, which currently isn't streaming to all devices... I realize that transcoding on this little board is a stretch, but the Emby devs say VAAPI should work.

I have this as a headless server so I disabled the GPU to give me more RAM - couple questions:

1) Will VAAPI work at all?
2) IF I enable VAAPI in Emby, do I need to add the 300MB back to the GPU in dietpi-config?

Any other suggestion to squeeze the most out of this C2 would be appreciated.

- NW

No idea sorry, untested. I'am also not sure if the available ARM binaries we pull in from Emby have this enabled. You'll have to give it a go and let us know how it goes. :)

Yes, you'll need to enable GPU features for GPU accelerated transcoding.
If you find our project or support useful, then we’d really appreciate it if you’d consider contributing to the project however you can.

No luck. Got a new update that says VAAPI will not work on ARM period.

They suggested OMX, will report once I figure out why my c2 won't boot... just did update 142 and now it will not load kernel :/

So there was a post in the hardkernel forums from a guy who got transcoding to work with his custom program. I asked team emby to implement an option to get transcoding to work with the C2.... It would be pretty awesome to get hw transcoding on this board, as I think it has just enough juice to do 1080p for one stream, and it would make the ultimate $50 emby server solution.... will update when i have more info.
