VLC on MK802 II

Postby mimac » Sun Feb 03, 2013 5:40 pm

Hello,

I tried installing VLC Player on several MK802 II Linux images, but I can't get it to work. When I play any video, it just stuck on first frame and nothing more.
Did anybody succeeded with running VLC on MK802 II with Linux? If yes, can you please let me know which Linux image did you use and whether some extra steps were needed?

Thank you in advance for any help.

I have with Fedora 17. It took a long time to get all the repos, and updates but I did get vlc installed. It plays pretty good, the better the sd card the better the performance will be. I went from a class 4 to a class 10 and there is no comparison. The class 4 had the issue you are describing.

Do you mean this https://www.miniand.com/forums/forums/2/topics/42 build? Does it work properly with MK802 II? I am mostly worried about WiFi drivers.
Do you have some list of repos you installed?

Yes the first link is the one I use daily. If its an authentic unit, you will not have wifi issues. I will say tho that the monitor/tv you attach it to has to be able to go 1180x768 I think, is the resolution. My tv at home is awesome to use and the menus dont get clipped, or squished. THe 720p Insignia I have to test things at work with is horrible as it squished the top menu bar so things are a B to see.
