Can Pi zero play video?


i have a question.

I want to make a small video player.
So i am interested in your Pi zero board.

Can Pi Zero board play video on Linux(Debian_LXDE ??)?
(eg. H.264 , Mjpeg or Mpeg)


Yes, it can, but mainline kernel didn’t contain hardware decode, so the resolution and fps is limited

thanks for your reply.

Have you tested the maximum resolution in real fps?

I will test it this week and put it on here

For example.

630 kbps MP4 stream, 640x360 / 24 fps : play without skipped frames.

mplayer, ~65% cpu load.
