TinkerBoard and VLC on Debian
#1
Hi guys,
I'm interested in buying the TinkerBoard, but I'm not sure if it is the right choice for me.
I read somewhere that VLC is working only on Android and not on the TinkerOs Debian distribution.
I need to use a Debian distribution and VLC on it, is VLC working correctly on Debian for TinkerBoard ?
Is H265 supported by VLC on Debian or it works only with the Asus's proprietary player?


Please let me know.

Thank you

VLC is working well on TinkerOS.
But I don't know that H265 is supported VLC on TinkerOS.

VLC mp3 files skip.  I have to use smplayer for audio.
VLC mp4 files play smoothly both video/audio.

Do you know if there is something I can adjust to make mp3 audio play smooth?

VLC does not use hardware acceleration (at least I have not been able to get a version that does). For 1080p I see from peoples posts software decoding seems to cut it, but for 4k, not even close.

The only GUI software I have been able to get to reliably work for 4k is the QT media player it comes with.

as far as I'm concerned the only time it's the wrong choice is as a file server due to lack of USB 3 ;-)

Is that the Media Player you talking about?
There is nothing hardly there.  I see no menu or options.
Maybe if you copy the movie and subtitle with the same file names for both in the same folder.
Then execute the movie.  Maybe it will find the subtitle file.
You can use Handbrake to convert dvd to mpv. I then rename the file from .mpv to .mp4 and they work.
I don't know about subtitles. Maybe Handbrake can do that to.
Install Handbrake and make it work for you.
Study, make adjustments, and write them down. Find what works best for quality and size.

Lots of help on youtube.
