GPU acceleration on the Chromium Web browser

Edit /etc/chromium-browser/default like this:

CHROMIUM_FLAGS=" --use-gl=egl --ignore-gpu-blacklist --disable-accelerated-2d-canvas --num-raster-threads=2"

You can see much smoother HTML rendering. Try this link to test the Webgl on the ODROID. Webgl demo

Tip: When you exit the full-screen mode, the screens goes just black from time to time.
Press “Ctrl-Alt-F2” and “Ctrl-Alt-F7” as a workaround.

Preinstalled Chromium Ver-47 shows wrong video rendering when we play Youtube.
To fix the issue, you need to enable the EGL option as described in above.

Kodi crashing when exit

The Kodi(xbmc) crashes when exit.

Workaround : Open a virtual terminal (ctrl-alt-F2) and kill it.

  • killall -9 kodi.bin

And return to desktop (ctrl-alt-F7)

This issue has been fixed with the latest Kernel update.
Just run “sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade”
