Amlogic Open Source Video Decoder Driver Coming Soon for S905, S905X and S912 Processors


Here’s the latest news on this topic.

  1. LibreELEC has done some testing with the Lima driver, and apparently very good progress has been made on the S905X SoC! and
  2. Panfrost has seen major advancement! Check out Alyssa’s blog and the talk they (Alyssa + Lyude) gave recently on the topic. and
  3. Last but not least, Neil Armstrong recently posted a video of a Mail T820 running kmscube.

All-in-all, seems like there’s some light at the end of the tunnel for these SoC’s, along with linux mainline and Kodi support (fingers crossed).

And a massive thank you to all people working on this! (CoreELEC, LibreELEC, Alyssa, Lyude, Neil, Lima team, etc.)!


And a new one, fresh out of the oven! :slight_smile:
