FTMC for older AMLogic hardware - use AML build

FTMC can be installed alongside Kodi as it uses its own App signature.

What does the removal of this AMLogic code mean for LibreELEC and custom builds like yours and Raybuntu's for the Odroid C2?

AMLogic Hardware decoding (amcodec) has still been retained, and improved upon in the AML/Linux portion of the Kodi Krypton codebase, which is what LibreELEC uses. The custom Android AMLogic hacks have been removed, everything Android has to go thru standard Android API's - Hardware video decoding has to use Mediacodec.

The AML Kodi developers @codesnake and other LibreELEC Kodi devs. - but mostly @peak3d with some of AMLogic's help has done a ton of work for the AMCodec decoder recently.

The improved code is why LibreELEC Kodi Krypton is a least one codebase generation ahead of Android Kodi Krypton on AMLogic platforms.

LibreELEC releases also have tight control over the Linux Kernel used, there is a bunch of bug busting that occurs to produce superior Firmware.
This is why I keep recommending LibreELEC Kodi Krypton to demanding AMLogic Kodi users all the time.
