I just bought a Raspberry Pi 2 (model B) for my father.
After a few trials, which included:
- installing Ubuntu Mate
- installing Raspbian
I finally converged to plain Ubuntu (14.04), which works pretty well, and is quite fluid.
However, YouTube videos as well as videos played with VLC do not run:
- video is not fluid
- I see just some frame, then black screen / a fixed frame, then again just some frame
- audio follows the same fate :(
- With the first solution, I am not able to retrieve the gIT project
- With the second solution, I am not able to install PiVid, since it requires OMXplayer, and when I try to install OMXplayer, it is not found (neither using aptitude nor using apt-get)
Unfortunately, I need it to work, since otherwise my father cannot listen to music in streaming!
Do you have any solution to the problem?
