Is there a way to play videos using Chromium.  Any general info about this topic would be helpful.  I tried downloading flash but it needs an i386 system.  Thanks for any advice.

Update ffmpeg codec to extra version:

 

1. Type/copy in terminal:

sudo apt-get remove chromium-codecs-ffmpeg

2. Check whether you can play video now.

 

3. If yes, third step is desirable. If no, third step is obligatory:

sudo apt-get install chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra

P.S. If this does not work for you, let me know. In the meantime, you may use Mozilla Firefox instead.

Thanks Support--This worked for me.  I just plugged in an auxillary speaker I use for my podcasts on my mp3 player to get the sound out.  Evidently, the sound doesn't go through the hdmi cable.  By the way, Is there a preferred way to download firefox to use on the pcduino3--I'd be interested in your instructions.  Thanks again--Scott

The sound defaults to go to the Audio jack. You can change that by following: http://learn.linkspr...ces-of-pcduino/
