OK thanks. I also think that vlc is not fully uninstalled when doing "make install".

Figured it out. It was the firmware 4.4.15. After downgrading to 4.4.14 everything worked as usual.

Just a note of thanks for this detailed and accurate procedure. I successfully executed all the steps that enabled a smooth, stutter-free, full-screen rendering to HDMI video/audio. This may not seem such a big deal to many of the members in this forum but for an old Windows programmer like me whose Raspbian (Linux in general) skills are crude at best it was quite an achievement! Many thanks.

Just a couple points of note. (Maybe too obvious in this school. :) )
1. I needed to delete the '.' from the end of the final command for proper execution
2. Before executing the first step, you need to make sure you're in the directory to which you extracted the VLC folder.

FYI, my scenario is as follows.
1. HDMI output to a device that splits the HDMI out to component video and optical audio
2. Source media is .iso DVD images stored on a NAS server (shared video folder mounted as a cifs file system)

Now just working on one stubborn issue. Keyboard navigation through VLC seems to be disabled (I can't stop the video!)

Cheers.

ad 1) I removed the "." from the install command (a stupid typo).
ad 2) I'm not sure what you mean by "first step". To install dependencies you do not have to go to the VLC folder. The compilation commands start with a "cd ..." which goes to the source code folder.

keyboard commands do work - at least they should. It's the only way to control VLC when the video covers the whole screen. But the VLC window must be in front for keyboard controls to work. If you click by accident outside of the VLC window, it will not be in front any more. It's best practice to maximize the VLC window before playing video in overlay (accelerated) mode.

I'm using VLC remote for Android for controls, i think it's also available for iOS. This way, you can fully control vlc, i. e. Play/pause, browse media (local, mounted network drives), even advanced controls like audio delay and subtitles. Starting up network streams (http,rtp) only works for YouTube though.

@gkreidl: Of course you're absolutely correct about the keyboard commands. Silly oversight. I should have at least committed 'alt-l-s' to memory before doing a test run ;)

Thanks for the tip about maximizing the VLC window before playing the video in overlay mode. I'll do that in future.

Thanks for taking the time to write this guide. I've followed the instructions in the first post, but I'm unable to get video playback on a connected monitor.

I'm running a RasPi 3 with a Volumio 2 installation (a distribution derived from Jessie). I've successfully compiled and installed VLC, and I've gotten it to play audio successfully. Video playback with OpenMAX fails over both HDMI and SSH. Low quality streams will successfully play with over ssh when I use XVideo or X11 video, but not on a connected HDMI monitor. This leads me to suspect there is something wrong with my X11 configuration as well.

The error messages I get when I try to play a video:

Code: Select all

[6b217330] core video output error: video output creation failed
[6ed9b3e8] core decoder error: failed to create video output
I sometimes also get :

Code: Select all

[724011c8] xcb_xv vout display error: no available XVideo adaptor
If anyone has any suggestions for what I could do to make this work, I would be quite thankful.

For SD resolution SDL output should work (software only).
I have no idea, why OpenMax shouldn't work, but maybe there's some difference with the Volumio 2 installation.

I tried a less crude way to install VLC (that would make it easy to uninstall for instance) than using "make install" ; just downloading vlc from jessies source, changing the vlc/debian/rules and adding the flags about omxil I thought were missing.

Code: Select all

confflags += \
        --enable-mmal \
        --enable-omxil \
        --enable-rpi-omxil \
[...]
Althought I end up with errors :

Code: Select all

dh_install: usr/lib/vlc/plugins/codec/libomxil_vout_plugin.so exists in debian/tmp but is not installed

Any tip ?

What's easier about that? And it doesn't seem to work.
BTW, the compiled version can be uninstalled by running
sudo make uninstall
(from the VLC source folder).
And one more thing: enabling MMAL will crash VLC. Do not use it.

I'll try your way then, as I don't succeed after 2 days of compilation (with that same previous error) ; I really lack knowedge around this, and I couldn't find help. Beat ! :p

I was wondering if anyone got this to work with the libvlc python bindings?
When starting vlc from command line the right output is selected but when i try to instantiate from libvlc using 'vlc.Instance("--vout=omxil_vout")' it just uses the default output

I'd really like to get the latest VLC built with hardware acceleration, but I only need the vlc-nox components as I'm doing headless transcoding to h264.

How do I go about building just vlc-nox, and not the full vlc pagackage with all it's X baggage?

Thanks.

This won't work. HW acceleration in VLC goes directly to the screen output. It cannot be used for transcoding.
You could either use Handbrake, which is software only but uses NEON and multiple threads (real time SD transcoding), or gstreamer with the gst-omx module, but this is heavy stuff.

Oh I see, so the hardware decoding is using an overlay on the GPU? Like first gen MPEG2 decoder cards for PCs that you had to feed your graphics card output through so you got MPEG2 video on your monitor, that was effectively painted over the main output?

How does the gst-omx module leverage hardware encoding then?

Also, what hardware acceleration are they discussing in this thread: https://ubuntu-mate.community/t/hardwar ... il/4997/18 ?

I need to be able to live transcode an IP camera stream to an h264 RTSP stream, and I can do it using VLC, but the performance is currently to poor using software encoding. I'm open to ideas on how this can be done using other software though.

I never tried that approach, but it can be done using a gstreamer1.0 tool chain and the gst-omx module. I use it for real time video transcoding.

This is configured for a MPEG TS live TV stream, but it should also work with other streams if you modify the tool chain.

Just had to register to say THANK YOU! :D

Instructions in the very first comment worked perfectly for me. Previous to finding this, I spent hours fiddling around with mpv and omxplayer only to witness 360p streams stutter and chop like crazy, not to mention the CPU usage was 100% every time.

With your instructions, this Rasperberry Pi 3 B+ can handle a 720p/60fps stream and not break a sweat. Unreal that a $35 board can do this.

Thank you thank you thank you!

Hi, I'm new to raspberrypi. I have install at the paspberry Pi 3 the actual Raspian with the NOOBS image.

For my first feeling is that everythings work fine.

I want t o install the VLC with the HW accelearations an dfound this instructions.

I follow this instructions by my best, download the tar and unpack the tar at /home/pi

then i start the terminal and try:

Maybe this was caused by the recent XORG update to the non-stable version.
Try installing the libwayland-dev manually and install the missing packages afterwards.

Re: Tutorial: Compile VLC with HW acceleration - Jessie, RPi

Sun Dec 11, 2016 7:22 pm

thanks. for the information. But how can i do that?

An other question: I want to try the vlc with hw acceleration to use the vlc to convert an h.264 stream from an ip cam to a MJEP-stream. Is that possible? The reason is the following situation:

I have 4 ip-cams arround the home installed, also i have a cc51 from becker-antriebe GmbH, this homecontrol unit can collect several cams to its homecontrol system by a http request to get the MJPEG-stream from the cams. The problem my ip-cams can't stream MJPEG. So my idea was to built with the raspberry a kind of transcoder, the cc51 get the stream instead of the ip-cams direct over the raspberry. The raspberry get a small http server, a inncomming request open the stream to the asked IP-cam and stream the transcoded MJPEG to the cc51, if the connection lost to the cc51 the streaming will abort by the raspberry webserver.

I see that the vlc can transcoding the streams, the question is do the vlc that over the hw acceleration or not?

Today i bought also the licenses for the VC-l and MPEG-2 for the raspberry in hope to fix my problem also.
Is that helpfull or not?

kind regards Thomas

No, you can use the HW acceleration only for displaying videos, not for converting them.
Video conversion is possible using gstreamer and the gst-omx module. I'm using it to transcode TV streams in real time.

ok thanks. than I must search for the gstreamer.
....
ups, it's not so easy and many stuff.
Have you a good idea to start up?

But at first, your opinion: can the paspberry pi 3 do that?

actually i have the problem that the pi have problems to stream the standard YouTube or maxdome videos with the rasbian pixel under chromius, have you got a idea where i can fix that -> output to FullHD makes breaks during the playing, i gives the GPU 128MB also 256MB without any changes, small windows work fine without any breaks ?

I don't think I can do anything about it right now. There seems to be a version mismatch in some dev-packages, perhaps caused by the latest XORG updates.
