Similarly to the change from Pi3 → Pi4 there’s probably a ton of internal differences that will not make it possible to run info-beamer OS out of the box:
- There doesn’t seem to be a H264 hardware decoder any more, so the existing method of decoding that will have to be completely rewritten and probably unified with how HEVC/H265 now works.
- HDR seems interesting. Not sure yet how all that will work
- Lots of other unknowns
There is no release date for anything yet. Any news will be posted here.
