Re: how to compile ffmpeg with hardware acceleration support

Thank you both! This was the guidance I needed. All sorted and up and running now. I am getting very similar errors building the popcornmix/gbm kodi branch.

Re: Starting kodi delayed by 2.0 min accompanied by vc4_hdmi fef05700.hdmi: ASoC: can't open interface fef05700.hdmi: -1

Using Raspberry Pi OS/Raspbian I can provoke that error by using the Volume plugin to select an HDMI output that has no monitor connect and then attempting to play a sound - the -19 (-ENODEV) makes sense in that context. Selecting an HDMI output that has a monitor with no sound support gives me an ...

We are wanting to use these at an intake area, those will perform different functions but I need to start looking into best security practices since it will be "public" facing.
All bets are off if there is physical access to the machine.

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 HEVC

Kodi 19 should use ffmpeg+v4l2, until then, you can use popcornmix's leia_pi4 branch which patches ffmpeg and kodi to use MMAL which can decode HEVC. LibreLE uses this branch as does Arch ARM.

Do you need/want to save each pic or just overwrite? I am assuming your pi user has a passwordless key for ssh connections to your webhost and the correct permissions to read/write files on the webhost. You could create a simple script that takes the pic then sends to the webhost and then have a sys...

Re: [How can i run a bash script on boot with Pi 4B /4GB]

You could write systemd service to execute it for you once the network is up rather than a sleep line... I assume your distro is using systemd.

Never use a Linux native port on Windows for something like formatting a disk. What is wrong with using the provided mkfs.ext4 command? Just TRIPLE check you are applying it to the correct partition. If you haven't yet partitioned, use fdisk or gdisk and observe the same warning. To help: https://wi...

Try LibreELEC, they have Kodi setup with hardware decoding via ffmpeg-mmal
Arch ARM also provides the popcornmix forks, both of which includes MMAL decoding for RPi4 or RPi3 and below if you prefer.

You want to run an FTP server on your Pi? There should be tons of options out there. What distro? Search the package repositories for FTP servers and pick one that appeals to you. If you must have the one you named, and if it isn't provided as a package, look into how to compile it.
