Re: Kodi not starting

Raspbian Jessie is ancient by now, two versions behind already, not many people still run it, I am not even sure if it still receives security updates. And the kernel in the rpi-update is certainly not tested in it anymore, so if you use it, expect breakage. I recommend that you upgrade your system ...

Re: [Guide] Kodi on Raspbian Buster

Enable debug logging as explained in the first post. And in the components log, enable ffmpeg. Any errors will be in the log but take note that if it is really frameskipping it will produce a quite big log. You can also upload a test sample of the video for us to test to see if we can reproduce the...

Re: [Guide] Kodi on Raspbian Buster

Kodi packages are now available on Raspbian Buster, more exactly on the raspberrypi.org repo. Just updated the first post accordingly.

I recommend that you remove the pipplware, you can do it by just running:

Code: Select all

sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pipplware.list
sudo apt-get update

Looks like you missed the dist-upgrade:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade -y
Only "sudo apt upgrade" is not enough.

I didn't test the videos yet, I will test it tomorrow. There was some issues with disks in USB 3.0 case enclosure/adapters, it could be it. It was fixed trough a firmware upgrade, search the forum for "VLI firmware".
