You can enable sshd on the LibreELEC (the currently available Kwiboo build enables it by default) and I guess it shouldn't be too hard to copy debootstrapped Debian into it, and run it in chroot. This should provide Debian packaged software, although without init (systemd) integration - the daemons would have to be started using some custom scripts. Kind of like Linux chroots under Android. What it certainly won't provide is any additional GUI software - the LibreELEC runs KODI without any windowing environment (no X11 or Wayland). So no browser.

I'm currently trying to get hardware accelerated video playback to work with the ayufans 64-bit Debian Stretch build, but at moment I have no idea, whether it I would succeed (don't understand the Linux video acceleration frameworks enough, so just trying to build software packages with available patches for now - fortunately Rock64 is not terribly slow for native builds).

raybuntu has made a recent librelec with the latest from kwiboo & longchair...
https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?tid=5130
https://github.com/Raybuntu/LibreELEC.tv...n18.img.gz

In openelec if you add the network tools package through the interface
https://github.com/LibreELEC/LibreELEC.t...ls-depends
You may need to use the repo by raybuntu as they have been recompiled

Always thought mweh with LibreElec and never really looked at it.
I am starting to dig it big style and the chromium addon seems very fast.

Some of the Nextcloud devs are creating a better docker container for it that is a bit more comprehensive with Libreoffice included.
LibreElec Kodi/Chromium/Nextcloud is just a great combination or use the Goggle g-suite is so inclined and not bother with nextcloud.
Its provided through the LinuxSever.io which installs docker and gives access to various containers.
I do like it and will be prob how I set my Rock64 up.

You can already use the gstreamer plugin if you install  gstreamer1.0-rockchip. Tried that with gst-launch on ayufan' debian stretch image and it worked.

Anyway I am looking forward to see the other player stuff, working too.

So we have gstreamer and ffplay maybe someone can put an install guide on the wiki with a list of limitations (AFAIK there is no encoding support or vp9/mpeg4/mpeg2 decoding support or 60Hz or 10bit support. AKA there is support for 4k h264/h265/vp8 +8bit +30Hz)
