Edit /etc/chromium-browser/default like this:

CHROMIUM_FLAGS=" --use-gl=egl --ignore-gpu-blacklist --disable-accelerated-2d-canvas --num-raster-threads=2"

You can see much smoother HTML rendering. Try this link to test the Webgl on the ODROID. Webgl demo

Tip: When you exit the full-screen mode, the screens goes just black from time to time.
Press “Ctrl-Alt-F2” and “Ctrl-Alt-F7” as a workaround.

Preinstalled Chromium Ver-47 shows wrong video rendering when we play Youtube.
To fix the issue, you need to enable the EGL option as described in above.

The Kodi(xbmc) crashes when exit.

Workaround : Open a virtual terminal (ctrl-alt-F2) and kill it.

  • killall -9 kodi.bin

And return to desktop (ctrl-alt-F7)

This issue has been fixed with the latest Kernel update.
Just run “sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade”

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
