Possible to get 4K resolution on Linux desktop?
(10-02-2016, 09:02 AM)tycoonbob Wrote: So I finally got my first PINE 2GB setup with Home Assistant doing all the cool stuff I wanted it for, and am really happy with it.  I'm now in need of a small form factor system that can run Linux (distro unimportant) with a 4K resolution on the desktop (DE also unimportant).  

It will be used as a camera viewing station, either pulling directly from my Unifi Video webpage showing 4-6 camera feeds, or I will use some software to pull 4-6 RTSP feeds.  Either way, I want a 4K resolution to use with a 27" 4K monitor.

Would total be interested in buying another PINE if it could handle this.  My preference would be running DietPi (Debian 8 based) with OpenBox, but could run LXDE or XFCE.  Would use Chrome/Chromium as the browser if I went with viewing from the UniFi Video webUI, and undecided on the RTSP software I'd use.


It supports the resolution 1920x1080p60 and will look great on your 27" monitor;  however, hardware acceleration is absent, and it will be slow.

If you want video, use android.
