Re: [Guide] Kodi on Raspbian Buster

I've finally got my rpi4 with everything I wanted working correctly, and it seems my last two issues are down to Kodi: 1) Is there currently any way to properly convert HDR to SDR? Although 4K H.265 decode is working well, colors are washed out... 2) Any way to launch SteamLink from Kodi? Old metho...

Re: [Guide] Kodi on Raspbian Buster

Well, I am out of ideas then. Since it happens also on LibreELEC, try asking on forum.kodi.tv. Do it with Libreelec first, otherwise you won't get much help there. FWIW, today I upgraded the firmware with rpi-update and now kodi starts :D . There are still problems with the tvheadend client but tho...

Re: KODI bugs with avidemux produced videos

Hi, I am using Kodi under Raspbian, but most videos produced with avidemux (under Ubuntu) cannot be displayed by KODI. Trying to read such a video leads to stop Raspbian (you cannot go out from KODI). Such videos are read without any problem with OMX Player. Thanks for your help. Post your Kodi deb...

Re: [Guide] Kodi on Raspbian Buster

Looks like a permissions problem on your side. Does it work if you run it as root (with sudo for example) ? Nope, I've tried sudo with both kodi and kodi-standalone - the same result. I'm running it on RPi4. It is based on image for Volumio, and it used to work before I upgraded (with regular apt u...

Re: RP4 Kodi on HDMI 2/ How to set HDMI 2 as primary

Forget what I said, you can run Kodi on HDMI 1 too. You just couldn't get sound some time ago but looks like you can now:

I have an option to switch monitor in LXDE -> Preferences -> Screen Configuration if that's what you mean.

Re: [Guide] Kodi on Raspbian Buster

I wanted to document a problem I've run into. I kind of assumed when I bought the Pi 4 that the reason VC-1 hardware decoding was dropped was that the new processor was powerful enough to handle 1080p VC-1 video. (At least, you'd hope it was tested before hardware support was dropped.) Buttttt that...

Re: Simultaneous operation of VNC and Kodi on the Raspberry Pi 4

VNC does not currently work with Kodi on the RPi4. Kodi on the RPi 4 uses GBM, it is different from the previous RPi versions, which uses dispmanx. VNC normally uses X11, which won't work with Kodi for any RPi versions. It only works on the previous RPi versions because there is experimental dispman...

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 ...

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:
