Video hardware (Xvideo) not working?

Hi all,
I am using Fenix script to build (successfully) Ubuntu-mate. Very happy so far, but I have a question, using mplayer I have this message:

[VO_XV] It seems there is no Xvideo support for your video card available.

X-Video Extension version 2.2
screen #0
no adaptors present

I would like to know if my VIM1 have hardware decoding (mp4) acceleration and what is the best configuration to run mp4 smoothly? ffplay, mplayer?

Thank you

Hi 11h11,

There don’t have hardware decoding acceleration now if you use Fenix to build image. You can use balbes150’s
ARMBIAN images.

These days I’m trying to add KODI to Fenix, can play 4K videos now, but still have some issues to be resolved.
If you want, I can give you a beta version to test.


Hi numbqq,

Thank you for your quick answer. I will be interested eventually but will wait for the final image for eMMC. I need to have alsa-midi enabled… (not interested in kodi, only being able to save cpu by decoding video on the dedicated hardware).


@numbqq Do you think that one day we will be able to download from the firmware page an Ubuntu image for eMMC with video hardware acceleration & alsa-midi support? That would be exactly what I need :slight_smile:

Hi 11h11,

We will add it to firmware page.:wink:
