Req VP9 support for Amlogic s905x

New Amlogic s905x has hardware decoder for vp9. But Kodi doesn't support it.

Amlogic sources for s905x can be found here - - reference board name for s905x - p212
I built linux from this sources with kodi 16.1 (with amcodec enabled), and vp9 in Kodi doesn't play throughout amcodec (in kplayer it does).

I checked if Kodi 17 supports it but didn't found any related changes on github.
amcodec is on the chopping block in hopes of finding something more standard and hardware agnostic.
I found that there is vp9 support in Kodi for Android. When i run Android on same hardware vp9 works fine.

From file xbmc/cores/dvdplayer/DVDCodecs/Video/DVDVideoCodecAndroidMediaCodec.cpp:

m_formatname = "amc-vp9";
