Under ubuntu on my VIM2, the videos are jerky but the sound is correct while under android everything is correct
Are there any settings to make under ubuntu?
It will probably stay jerky forever, it doesn’t depend on your settings.
Vim2 is released, but there is still no proper support even for Vim1, i don’t have high hopes regarding both devices.
Thanks for your reply
It is linux and hardware video acceleration in general which is the usual and well known issue; fluid arm linux video is exceptional; that’s why media box manufacturers simply embed android with their device
is youtube on vim2 really bad?
I just ordered one as desktop. and I will watch youtube a lot. should I cancel the order?
just be prepared to use android for any need of smooth media playing
I need it for running ubuntu.
I may be doing something in the background. how can I switch the system?
so, I should cancel the order, right?
Yep, as Tommy21 said, VIMs are not perfect at the moment, and the YouTube on Linux still need whole ARM-Linux open source community do more efforts on that to get the issue resolved and improve the user experience.
Too late. Already shipped out. What Can I do that if I want to use Ubuntu to watch Facebook? And why does vim2 play on android smoothly but not on Ubuntu? I am just curious. I thought Mali can be accumulated on Linux 4.9 kernel.
let me suggest this to @Gouwa:
for vim3, remove any video out socket, so that noboby will be deceived by video and 3d CGI not being accelerated. vim3 would be very ok anyway for running ubuntu server.
There have some good news: Amlogic and the open source community are working at Wayland, and Ubuntu 17.10 will support Wayland, it means that users can surfing videos thought Web Browser some day.
You will love VIM2
We have not add hardware video acceleration on ubuntu now, sorry for that.
