TinkerOS with Netflix, kodi, libreoffice

Other devices like my Wii U or PCs/Laptops play back (Full HD) streams just fine, but Chromium on the Tinkerboard doesn't exceed 480p, even after half an hour of playback  Sad

I recommend updating to TinkerOS 1.9. It's more than likely not the root cause of the problem, but getting a fresh OS will help. If you want all the programs included in this package in the newer version, just do

sudo apt-get install -y kodi libreoffice x11vnc vlc pinta

Then head to the Netflix page here

And follow those instructions. Then restart the Tinker Board, and everything should be working.

If you want VNC server on startup, run this command

echo "@x11vnc -forever -noxrecord" >> ~/.config/lxsession/LXDE/autostart

The kodi from package manager works fine for me, but I think it might have had some problems with VLC. I don't have a video to test it with. If you have problems, there is a guide somewhere on these forums to compile VLC from source

I remember having problems with internet speeds using the Raspberry Pi through ethernet, and it's a 100M connection. The Tinker is 1G connection, so is your router 100M?
Updated image for 1.9

Nice, I didn't know this was possible. This reminds me of the pocket pc windows phones with custom roms. I just installed your version and so far everything is running smooth.
Quick update to add in Sonic Pi , Minetest and Geany
