Video, Licensing and Screen Turns Off
I have been playing with Emteria OS and it's very good piece of work, certainly easy to bring up a working Android on a rpi. But I have a few questions.
1/ I have tried playing video on VLC with EmteriaOS and it doesn't display the video but I hear the sound.
Do I need to buy and put in place raspberry pi licence keys for the GPU hardware to make this work? e.g in config.txt
Do I need these to do video and will Emteria use the HW accelerated decoder if I do?
2/ I'm looking to buy a license. The "Basic" one in features says:
Whereas "Customized" says:
Does this mean Basic will never get updates without having to pull the sdcard (and lose all config) and re-flash?
When is in place updating due? Don't really want to keep taking my display case to pieces to update software.
3/ I was thinking of leaving the screen on all the time, but this doesn't seem to be an option on the Android settings (upto 10 minutes as I remember). Any reason for this? Also if you select the screensaver it never seems to cut in after the set interval, just goes black.
