Odroid C2 | x265 fix

Post by johnvick »

Not strictly related to DietPi although I will be trying it out in due course - I received this today. The 32 GB MMC I bought for the XU4 works fine with it. It is mainly to run Kodi so given a recent post in this forum about DietPi and Kodi not working just now I opted for LibreELEC. Works well so far - I was almost caught out when it didn't see the shared MySQL database but this was fixed by getting the device to wait for the network before booting. It plays 1080p x265 video with ease - files that an overclocked Pi3 couldn't handle. For some reason some 720 x265 files play audio only - not sure why. Nice device - posted in Korea on Monday arrived in NZ Thursday.

Update - fixed the x265 problem with the help of this thread:

Hi John,

Yep the C2 + EMMC is simply epic.

What colour is the PCB on this? Any chance of a picture?

Just a heads up, Kodi has been fixed for next DietPi update (v121) on the C2:

Code: Select all

echo 16 > /sys/module/amvdec_h265/parameters/dynamic_buf_num_margin

It's in a frosted clear case and won't photograph well through it - it's a red 5.0 32 GB. I was reading elsewhere with LibreELEC running entirery from RAM that eMMC
and SD installations are much the same.

Cool look forward to it :)

Interesting thread that one and yes that was all it took to get it working.
