No (AllWinner == very very bad support for open source)

What are you planning to do with it?

( but anyway, interesting board for low price Smile )

From their forum

Will Kodi run on the Pine64 ?
it is clearly annouced, but all messages from kodi,osmc and openelec dev's says the same thing : we won"t do anything with Allwinner hardware

What a pity this wasn't the spec for the raspberry pi 3.....

Still, maybe there will be a raspberry pi 4 before the end of the year?

Yeah, Allwinner is a pretty bad choice...but for this price I could not resist and order it from pure curiosity Big Grin

There is a decent Android build on which Kodi runs pretty fine.
They can even play 4k videoe with HW decoding but not within Kodi.

My intention was and is to try multimedia. So Kodi or something else.
If is not going to be any good it is going to end up on eBay Big Grin

RE: Pine64 platform
So maximum 30fps 4K, that wasn't very forward looking of them.

Do you have a 4K set?

well, I do not see this an issue to be honest.
I do have 4k set, but ask me how much 4k stuff I watched on it in past 18months....I can tell you exactly...none...one big fat zero

There is not much stuff available in 4k and I don't see it will be much more available in near future

RE: Pine64 platform
Damn just checked, only 27 different titles (some shows) currently in 4K on Netflix.

That does suck, I thought it was much more.
