This crashed today while playing a vid in VLC player, had to restart board.
Have also been using kodi to play a lot of vids and thats been fine.
Does this image include the latest rockchip video drivers?, i think i read someone say they are more,stable, if thats what the issue is.

Ive been using this image on a daily basis, very impressed , but it has some problems with OS hanging, needing reboots (mouse freezes, everything locks up)
happended when using software below
Media Player , playing video, happended twice
VLC, playing video , happended once.
Preferences, Monitor Settings, happened once.
Chromium, once

The Good News
KODI, Midori web browser both seem to be immune , sometimes they close down unexpectedly, rarely , but have never caused a fatal hang.
All my media playing is now done in KODI.

So in summary, this image works great as long as you use Kodi to play media
Ive also used Filemanger , LXTerminal, LibreOffice a lot, and these have never casued me any problems.

Much prefer using this over my Windows 10 pc, every thing seems very snappy

I modify /usr/share/alsa/alsa.conf and ~/.asoundrc.  (reference: https://www.alsa-project.org/main/index.php/Asoundrc), and sonic-pi has sound to run an example.

This is my steps to fix the issue shown as following.
Step 1. using "aplay -l " and list the result.

**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: Audio [USB Audio], device 0: USB Audio [USB Audio]
  Subdevices: 0/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: Audio [USB Audio], device 1: USB Audio [USB Audio #1]#
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: Audio [USB Audio], device 2: USB Audio [USB Audio #2]#
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 1: rockchipminiarm [rockchip,miniarm-codec], device 0: ff890000.i2s-i2s-hifi i2s-hifi-0 []#
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

* More detail:
Card 0, device 0: BT_VOIP
Card 0, device 1: SPDIF
Card 0, device 2: Headset
Card 1: HDMI

Step 2. Modify /usr/share/alsa/alsa.conf (sudo vim /usr/share/alsa/alsa.conf)
Method 1: set as Headset

Code:
defaults.pcm.card 0
defaults.pcm.device 2

Method 2: set as HDMI
Code:
defaults.pcm.card 1
defaults.pcm.device 0


Step 3. Create ~/.asoundrc (vim ~/.asoundrc)
Method 1: set as Headset
Code:
pcm.!default {
    type hw
    card 0
    device 2
}

ctl.!default {
    type hw          
    card 0
    device 2
}

Method 2: set as HDMI

Code:
pcm.!default {
    type hw
    card 1
}

ctl.!default {
    type hw          
    card 1
}

Step 4. sonic-pi

Thanks for the new version.

Do you know if Kodi is hardware accelerated in this version? There's a post in the 2.03 thread reporting 'apt install kodi' doesn't seem to have acceleration.
