Re: [Guide] Kodi on Raspbian Buster

Packages updated to 18.4-4. Changes: -Added libegl1 and libgles2 dependencies -Support for "OpenGL desktop driver with fake KMS" on the Raspberry Pi 3. This uses Kodi with GBM (like the Pi 4) but looses H265/HEVC support. The recommended is still using the "Legacy Original non-GL desktop driver" aka...

For anyone trying to get this working on Raspbian Buster Lite - you need two additional packages:

Code: Select all

sudo apt update && sudo apt install libegl1 libgles2
Probably kodi-bin needs these added as additional dependencies.
Thanks, added, should be good in the next build.

Kodi 19 should use ffmpeg+v4l2, until then, you can use popcornmix's leia_pi4 branch which patches ffmpeg and kodi to use MMAL which can decode HEVC. LibreLE uses this branch as does Arch ARM.
Yep, the same as above as explained at the end of the first post.

Re: [Guide] Kodi on Raspbian Buster

it is working quite well but the GUI interface seems slow, 20 to 40 fps is displayed when logging is enabled (why not 60 fps for the interface?) It doesn't look slow for me, what you may be seeing is some tearing. Kodi in Raspberry Pi 4 uses GBM as the window rendering and does not support VSync on...

libreElec will do that already I believe.

Currently no direct kernel support in standard Raspbian.
Do you have any idea when this will be ready?
Kodi on Raspbian will do it:

Re: speedtest difference Windows-RPi4

Speedtest, and other tests depend mostly on the server which it is tested with. Mainly on provider tested and distance. Even on the web interface on a x86 machine, if I select a more distant server, I may get lower results. I believe this is the main reason about the speed differences you are gettin...
