I just dug up my old fire tablet with mustang on it and lineage 14.1 and put this 16.0 on it, but it seems like i'm not able to stream videos from my plex library.

I've tried adjusting every option to play back in a variety of resolutions and h264 versions, and can't get it to work.

Has anyone run into an issue trying to stream video or may have an idea on how to fix it?

--edit--
Oh, i see it's a known issue with video rendering. I'll keep an eye on the thread if one day it'll get fixed.

Aside from the video issue, how are you liking performance? I have the original 16.0 build on it, which seems pretty decent. It's much faster than my old Amazon ford tablet ever could be.

Yeah its not bad overall. I don't use it much, as it was just a tinkering project to modify the tablet to run android for me. I do need more little plex media tablets to be able to have more options to watch my shows, so if that can ever get fixed, it'll get a lot more use. :)

I want to use my device as a tablet for Home Assistant next to the entrance door. Therefore I'm just curious, is this ROM still in dev or is it discontinued?
None of us can actually answer for the author, but it looks like it's probably dead. No new updates in a very very long time and standing issues. Bear in mind this is a relatively oldish tablet that didn't have the best hardware (SoC is a MediaTek in particular -- could be worse, but definitely could be a lot better too) that was officially replaced with a newer model long ago (not sure if there are exploits for the newer ones or not, but I'm betting there are given the popularity and low pricerange of the series.)

That said, for most simple tasks it works fine. I really don't think you'll have any issues just using it as a home assistant. I only use mine for reading and keep it clean and simple and it's still very snappy at simple tasks with a good battery life. As a bit of a tip, if it will be around a lot of sunlight or bright overhead lights, get a matte finish screen protector for better bright light handling. (I'm assuming we're talking about inside. These are fairly cheaply made and not well sealed, so likely would be a bad idea to have outside if you had anything like that in mind.) The current build here seems to be pretty stable and reliable other than the known issues that shouldn't affect what you have in mind.

Thanks for your thoughts on this. I tried this ROM and come to a similar conclusion. Than I switched back to Lineage-14.1
The tablet is old, slow and the display is not really bright anymore. But it's to good to throw away. I installed fully kiosk browser to show a home assistant dashboard (still in evaluation therefore I didn't buy a licence until now). Also I cut the internet connection for this device. Works like charme for his last days before retirement.

    - EVEN MORE IMPORTANT: This ROM only works on devices using the bootloader hack.

    - IMPORTANT: Do not update Magisk via the Magisk Manager App, your device will enter a bootloop if you do. Instead update Magisk via TWRP only. If you do this by accident then it is recoverable by just flashing the latest version of the ROM again (with gapps etc as required). This will be fixed in a later update.

    - Please report bugs here
    - Report only one issue per bug report
    - When reporting bugs please post a logcat and/or dmesg where possible
    - Saying something isn't working without proper explanation will not attract any attention.

    Got this working on my fire 7. Pretty amazing!
    Having issues with YouTube playback with new pipe though. Setting default video format to WebM seems to fix it. Playback also doesn't work in Firefox.

    I'm having the same issue. I can't play YouTube in the app, on Firefox, or in NewPipe. I also can't play videos on cnn.com in Firefox. Setting the format to webp in NewPipe does fix it though.
    Added video playback to the todo list

    @ggow , can we expect a similar ROM for the older FIRE devices, like Ford?

    I think it's possible, been looking into it. However it may result in loss of cameras and other functionality at least in the short term.

    I'm wanting to get all the amazon devices I work on onto lineage-16.0, easier to work on one rom for all.
