Could it be that we need to do this to get HW acceleration working: https://forum.manjaro.org/t/manjaro-arm-.../112647/24

HW rendering is working on Kodi app UI but video playback is running on software acc. 

If you check in system information, you see that its using Panfrost and Open GL for Rendering.  While when you play any video and press "o" and it will show you the playback information there it will show you (SW ACC).

As ARM Devices have Different Drivers for GPU and VPU. Currently panfrost is the GPU which is achieved from open source project, Soon in 5.7 we will have some support for VPU. So we will have to wait for it.

I'll try the package from the repo and see if there are any differences, if so, we can investigate what the differences where Smile
I build it on my Vim3 with kde and gles.

Kodi package 
It is uploaded to the Manjaro Repo. This kodi build needs GLES support, it only plays video with software decoding. There was no screen tearing or lag. Kodi UI works smooth as it is hw acc.

How to install
For users on Stable branch
Step 1: 

Code:
sudo pacman-mirrors -b unstable
[size=undefined]

Step 2: [/size]

Code:
sudo pacman -Syy kodi

Users on unstable branch can skip Step 1.

Nice work brent. Thanks.

Did you create package under https://gitlab.manjaro.org/manjaro-arm/packages ? I would like to clone it (it is easier to update PKGBUILD and files over git then collecting files over forum).
