    It plays fine from a local copy. Maybe it doesen't work so well over wifi, I'll try to switch to another arm computer with wired connection.

    You can also try the URL of the recording in vlc. It probably shows in web.log or web client.log

    I think MVP would have been a better choice on Linux, VLC doesn't seem to work so well.

    What are alle the "Unknown event" messages I get? Is there a newer version og nLite source that can handle those events?

    I am not sure what you mean by MVP? if you mean the logic for the MVP and NMT they use the specific h/w video players. Sub choose to use libVLC because it is generic across many platforms. The issue as I've posted to you often is the libVLC hasn't been ported to use h/w on the many of the small processor platforms. That is why finding a device that supports Librelec and Kodi is the best choice right now on smaller platforms. Very few people are motivated to get libVLC working on ARM.

    fred250 did nLite work for the RPi https://forums.nextpvr.com/showthrea...rry-Pi-2-and-3 using its h/w player but there wasn't too much interest here. I want to write something similar for the S905 family using the Amlogic h/w player. In teality, most users seem to prefer Android (with lower performance) so that is why Kodi or sub's client (using the ExoPlayer library which does support h/w playback) appear so popular. Eventually I'd like to see an nlite port to Android probably using ExoPlayer and if sub doesn't code this I probably will.

    Just ignore the error messages see https://forums.nextpvr.com/showthrea...165#post527165 Kodi logs would show the same type of thing ffmpeg libraries can be very detailed.

    No I mean the MVP media player on Armbian, which uses HW acceleration when available. I'd be interested to have a look at Fred's work, maybe there is something usable

    Ok you probably mean mpv (son of mplayer) so yes I guess it could have been embedded instead of libvlc. That doesn't mean it will provide h/w acceleration any better than libvlc does. There are flavours of Armbian for every chip so even if mpv works with your version it might not run on another.

    Fred's work with the RPi uses OMX Player so that only runs on the RPi chip.

    I just tried Armbian on my S905x box and mpv is installed by default but on the balbes150 build I have mpv is not accelerated and 1080i mpeg2 video doesn't play which is a must have in North America.
