pinebook pro overheats and switches off when streaming
#11
hwaccel + vaapi + firefox shouldn't be too far off!

The metal bottom of the Pinebook Pro is quite large,  it could flex a bit.
 I wonder if it does make better contact to the thermal pad on the cpu on some laptops than on others  ?

Perhaps something as simple as a thicker thermal pad 'may help' on many of them ?

a little thick would likely be better than a little thin....  (?)

ALSO :  I wonder if some thermal pads may have been lost when someone opens their laptop for other purposes
      and then they do not notice it is missing when they put it back together... ?

The first time I opened my PBP the thermal pad was stuck to the cpu,
                  BUT,  the second time I opened it, it was stuck to the metal bottom plate.

The thermal pad already designs as "a little tick"
