Well then you clearly bought the wrong device. You can try android which has hardware accelerated video decode which also might work with Youtube (but i have no clue about Android and it does not seem to be supported on the 512MB model).

Sure there are plenty desktop environments for Linux with work with 512MB model. Probably the easiest to use would be LXDE. Still this has nothing todo with hardware accelerated video decoding (especially in the browser) which might as well never happen for the Pine64.

no any other lite version of android suitable for 512MB/lite specifications was ever developed? like older versions (up to KitKat)?
has anyone tried android on a 512MB model, or it's not even possible to install it?

i'll try the LXDE though, thanks. really trying to max out this model before ordering the 1/2GB  Wink
